LV-426 by mandomemory LV-426 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.

You're cosplay is amazing! I've searched for days and this is the best I've seen.  I'm trying to put together an Ellen Ripley cosplay for an upcoming convention and I'm having a hard time finding a belt/harness/shoulder strap that's similar to Ripley's.  Did you also make it?  My rifle will probably just be a nerf blaster and paint it black and grey.

Thank you! The belt/harness/shoulder strap rig is a bunch of different pieces. The harness I made from scratch (along with a grenade strap from spatcave). The shoulder strap for the rifle is some sort of cordura tactical strap (I believe. It's been a while since I purchased it). The belt is a truspec pistol belt.
