Post Alien Pods

Believe it or not, I do make things besides Pirate props! These are for a friendís Halloween party.





They are supposed to be like the ones from the movie Aliens (no facehuggers were harmed in the making of these).

The pods are wonderful IMU, very nice work once again! I hope the friend will post pics of how they are used at their Halloween party this year.

I like the texture on these - kinda warty and nasty

Very cool. I have a plush Facehugger that would feel quite at home in one of those.

Too bad they look to be out of stock now.

I'm even more "wowed" by this after seeing your progress pics. What did you attach to the top of the tubing to created the pod "mouth"? And I never get the foam drippings so small, but that may be a difference in the specific products we use. I really love these pods - great job as usual!

Spooky, a plush facehugger? Really? I'm almost afraid to ask if there's a story behind this . . .
