Mentioned in another post that I was making a leather mask based on the facehuggers from the Alien movie franchise. I wasn’t sure how long it would take, so I am getting an early start so that it will be ready for Halloween.
Purchased the pattern from
Then digitized it so I could cut it on my Glowforge.
So far, I have have cut, formed, and dyed the body and legs. Tail is next. No forming required but a lot of pieces that have to be dyed and hand sewn.
That does look awesome and +1 for the link to LeatherHub which I didn’t know was a thing.
Also, I believe this is the first time I’ve ever seen a project where one can yell “why don’t you just dye!” during the build phase and “why don’t you just die!” during the execution phase, and both utterances are context-correct. I’ll make do with being amused by that until you post the completion pix.
After many distractions, I finally got around to (mostly) finishing the facehugger.
I just need to figure out how I want to attach the pieces that make it wearable as I want the pieces to be removable.
