Introduction: Aliens From an Underwater Plannet
Step 1: Fabricating the Head Piece
The head piece frame was made by welding 1/4 inch aluminum rod. Bent and shape to fit the body perfectly.
Black fabric was used to cover the frame from the inside to cover the back of the head.
using a white color pencil tracing the frame to make a templete and last stitch it with wire because it is very thin strong and almost unnoticeable.
Step 2: Dome Fill With Wate
2 acrylic domes 14 inch
double sided tape
once the dome is sealed with the epoxy, the dome can be filled with water to create the illusion that the person is actually under water after it is attach to the aluminum frame.
a smaller piece of grey duct tape was use to close and seal the home simply because it is strong enough and seamless a possible.
Step 3: Wire-ring the Black Light Led's
5 black light LEDs were use around the dome because some of the make up glows in the dark.
the batteries were solder together and strap outside and on the back of the head piece for easy acces: then it was painted black to camouflage it completely.
Step 4: Attaching the Bubble Gun
since the bubble gun needed to have the trigger pull in order to work it could not be wired to a simple button. instead a bicycle brake line was used to make it work.
Step 5: Making the Claw
springs were attached to every joint so that the fingers would expand on their own. and of couse tthe claw fingers had rings that connect to the fingers to control it.
small suction cups were attach to the fingers of the claw using hot glue gun, the glue and the suction cups also glow under black light.
and last 5 blackLEDs were place at the button of the claw fingers to make the blue and suction cups glow.
Step 6: Final Touches
An spandex body suit and a corset (also costume made)for her and a simple blue jump suite for him.
Here is the final result
