Contest Entry: 7Ft Alien Warrior Costume With Animatronic mouth, lips and Tongue!

Well, here he is. Meet Fluffy - my scratchbuilt Alien! Technically, this is the Mk2 version, as the head is more accurate, easy to wear and has animatronics (albeit simple ones). I'll try and keep this brief! He's made primarily from recycled EVA foam detailed with a soldering iron and heat gun; and is almost 100% recycled/upcycled materials. The front is a smoked motorcycle helmet visor to allow me to see through, and when I have the feet on, I reach about 7ft in height.  I wanted to control all of the movements from inside the head, so I devised an array of buttons and switches that are operated by me contorting my lips, face and tongue! The reason for this, is that I wanted to be able to curl the lips separately from the mouth and tongue. I reckon he cost less that £200 to make. As you can see, he's got a little Comic Con damage, but he held up pretty well! I just wish I wasn't such a short-arse so I didn't have to wear those damn feet! Here's a little video of my performance at the Cardiff Con - you can just about see the mouth movements. There is another vid of me and my Predator friend which shows it even better, but that's on his Facebook profile! Oh and yes, the tendons are indeed condoms - gotta be as authentic as possible!
