Xfactor Alien

This alien costume was designed and created for a student film. 

The design specification asked for a small alien that would be based on the typical 1950's B-movie martian. The actor would wear a full head mask with a small silicone body attached to their neck. This would contain an internal skeleton which could be manoeuvred with rods.

It utilised many different techniques including life casting, sculpting, fibreglass moulding, casting with silicone, silicone seaming and painting as well as welding.
