This 3D Alien Xenomorph suit is the work of UK-based James Burton of XRobots who makes all sorts of science fiction props. This is just the latest of his incredible creations. According to 3D Printing Industry:

This isn’t Bruton’s first Alien suit, he previously constructed a suit by sculpting the parts in clay, creating plaster molds and then casting the parts in latex rubber. While he was happy with the results of his first suit he found it to be messy and time consuming to construct. Additionally the head was extremely heavy and the bodysuit was made of more liquid latex, so it was quite difficult to move around and uncomfortable.

His new Xenomorph project will be constructed in small, individual 3D printed parts that can be easily fit together. By designing his suit in pieces not only can he build it to a size specific for himself, but he can put in closures and connectors so each piece can fit together seamlessly.

Burton doesn’t just make the suits, but sells the 3D design files which you can download directly from his site so you can make them for your next cosplay adventure.
