Costume: Ellen Ripley from Aliens by mandomemory Costume: Ellen Ripley from Aliens by mandomemory
My Ellen Ripley costume, from the end of Aliens.


People have been telling me for years that I resemble the character, so I couldn’t resist building it! I paid very close attention to accuracy due to the way the apparent “ease” of the costume leads to a lot of poor renditions. Basically everything here was built by me, either from bottom-up like the bandolier rig and cargo pants, or was heavily modified from the source, such as the shoes (which have been torn apart, reconstructed, and painted). The pulse rifle was constructed by myself, it is a kitbash of several fan cast parts (mostly Matsuo) plus airsoft.

Costume by me.
