The other day the aliens' bird costume legs arrived in the mail.
Modeled in all their glory here by Alien One.
Adding to that the busts, the costumes are really starting to take shape. Now I just need to complete the wings and figure out the head because ...
... as you can see the talons are already looking pretty awesome :)
Initially envisioned as papier mache, our go-to medium of choice, I decided to branch out with wire, fabric, tubing (previously used to clean our real fish tank) and thread that the Trouble and Strife has rejected.
In consequence they articulate! Squirrels beware!!
