Introduction: Aliens Ripley With Pulse Rifle

Picture of Aliens Ripley With Pulse Rifle

Make Way for  Lt.Ellen Ripley from Aliens!
   
    This costume is my latest creation. Most of the costume is thrift store clothing that I  put together.  I was fortunate to find an assortment that worked together. For the staining I used coffee, soda and shoe polish. I also misted the entire costume with a black temporary  hair color ( like the sell at Halloween). There were a lot of images to go by. I tried to match the stains in the movie photos.

      Unable to find stompers (boots), I had to use white sneakers with sock cuffs and elastic bands.

     The pulse blaster was an important prop. I made mine from a toy blaster that I modified by gluing on pvc pipes and dowels that I then covered with craft foam and embellished with acrylic paints. The strap is a canvas belt. Because a 2 year old would be carrying this rifle it had to be super light weight  and easy to carry.
