  1. Great video and great costume. So many times I won’t start a project because I don’t know to make it “perfectly”. This is a reminder that you can get amazing results with limited resources, and there is no excuse not to try your best with what you have.

  2. Great job kids! Glad to see this suit get some love on Tested. Even iconic movie props are plywood and duck tape on the back side, so this suit is up there with the best of them.

    (I think those middle two alien fingers were supposed to be stuck together.)

  3. Thanks, Adam!

    The story of this performance (and encore) has fascinated me since I first saw it! I am so glad that Mr. Scott, Mrs. Weaver, and you have supported this theatric endeavor, as well as its creators and performing artists!

    Seriously, this brought a tear to my eye! As a father of a high school performing artist, I really appreciate your enthusiasm for this performance and its creators!

    I saw the original Friday night “premier” of the original “ALIEN” release in June of 1979. A formative event in my life!

    Shilly!
