OF COURSE I AM. Yes, the facehuggers set off all of my arachnophobia because of the legs and how they move, but Alien and Aliens are fantastic movies. And the RealHusband is a huge, HUGE fan of them - he once did sample pages for an Aliens comic, and if we’d had the money at the time, he would have purchased the “life-size” bust of the Alien Queen from Sideshow Collectibles. (Where we would have put it, I don’t know.)
(Pssst! Peeps, go to the RealHusband’s tumblr and reblog the goblin pictures! He did a fantastic job with them, and more people should see them!)

Ellen Ripley comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom
Nuke the entire site from orbit, it’s the only way to be sure.
Oh. My. G-D. Xenomorph high heels. I … I kinda want them. I wouldn’t be able to walk in them, but I absolutely could sit around and look decorative while wearing them. Except for the tiny issue that the facehuggers still kind of freak me out, and I don’t know if wearing a few of them on my feet would make me feel less afraid, or if it would make me need to check my feet every few minutes to make sure they hadn’t come to life and were skittering toward me. My irrational phobias, let me show you them.
Via aliensandpredators, an Alien facehugger on etsy. On the one hand, that’s some amazing modeling work; well-done, you people! On the other hand, NO. The facehuggers freak me out (it’s the similarity to spiders), and there is NO WAY that I would be comfortable with that in the house. (And I say this as I am looking across the room at the life-size Predator bust we have.)
Tho’ he doesn’t know it yet, @PeteVenters is filled with longing for this toy to be a real thing.
Pop goes the alien!
ALIENS poster (1 of 3). Predictably, this product did not test well with the toddlers. If you’re in Hawaii, check out the show at the Ward Titan on October 24th.
Funny. Although this would’ve seemed a more appropriate poster for Alien than Aliens
It’s an automatic reaction: see something related to Aliens, think of @PeteVenters.
I’m posting this mostly for @PeteVenters - H.R. Giger, the alien designer for the film Alien, at his drawing board, Switzerland, 1978. Photographed by Eve Arnold.
