Alien Chestburster Puppet

Here's a test run of my latest bit of puppetry, made for Halloween 2010.

Gosh, it really turned out a lot more phallic than I'd intended. I don't think the shifty-looking overcoat helped much there, either.

I'm sure that the bit when it tries to bite me after I've been stroking it is a great metaphor for something.

Full DIY details here: The puppet was sculpted in plasticine, then cast in latex from a plaster mould. Here are a few more photos of the process, with the finished costume (deep sea diver/alien victim) at the bottom.
