The queen in Aliens 2 is absolutely terrifying, but this one is simply beautiful. It was made by animation director Ashley J. Long and features a headpiece made from 50-60 pieces of cardstock that were carefully arranged and glued together over the course of two months. Jewels were added for a little creepy sparkle and the whole thing sits atop a bike helmet that secures it to her head.
There’s also a paper mache egg and a spine made from aluminum. Add a very elegant black dress and you have a seriously stunning outfit.
See more pictures after the break.
Head on over to Instructables for more info on how the costume was made.
