US Colonial Marine - Aliens


This costume has been slowly coming together over the years with bits being bought here and there. Its only recently though I've started getting the main armour together. All the paint work on my armour is done by a friend of mine, Dan so he is the artistic talent I just tell him what to draw.

I originally bought the safariflague BDU's but have since lost a lot of weight so they no longer fit, in the future I'll be selling the stuff I bought in the beginning.

Hoping to have everything bought and done for 2012.

As of November 2011 this costume is pretty much complete. I will be buying a few of the accesories here and there if I find them cheap enough. I'm actually shocked at how much I've spent on this outfit seems as usually I spend a lot less than £150-£200 on a costume. Luckily the price has been split over 6-8 months so I haven't been too hard hit.

Thanks I can't wait to get this finished. Shame I can't build the armour myself, I've looked at the pepakura for it but adjusting it to my size makes it look weird so I'm going with a guy in the States who makes them from plastic as I know his fits (having tried on a friends). This will be one of my first practically store bought costumes. But after years of wanting to do the costume it will be well worth it

It was good to finally see this complete..... Although I find it amusing that your flamethrower is nearly as big as you are :P

How rude lmao. But your right by the end of the day I was holding it down and had the end resting on my boot whilst I held the handle and I swear the damn this is as long as my leg!
