JULIEN’S AUCTIONS IS PROUD TO PRESENT OUR “HOLLYWOOD SCI-FI, ACTION, FANTASY AND MORE AUCTION” TAKING PLACE IN BEVERLY HILLS AND LIVE ONLINE AT JULIEN’S LIVE ON THURSDAY, APRIL 29TH.

"Among the marquee highlights of this event will be the full-size prototype Xenomorph costume designed by the Academy Award-winning and revered surrealist artist and sculptor, H.R. Giger from the 1979 seminal sci-fi horror classic, Alien. Long believed to have been lost and destroyed, this original translucent prototype (known as "Big Chap") for the terrifying creature character was created for consideration by the film’s celebrated director Ridley Scott during the early stages of the film’s pre-production. Comprehensive lighting and camera tests were conducted by the pre-production team to demonstrate the potential; however, the non-translucent costume was the final result and the character development with Giger would go on to spawn one of Hollywood’s most legendary horror icons ever to come on screen. This extraordinary costume is now considered the rarest and most elusive artifact from the blockbuster film franchise.

Other items from the Alien franchise include a complete costume worn by Sigourney Weaver as a clone of her legendary character, Ripley, in the film Alien Resurrection, as well as a costume worn by Wynona Ryder from the same film both designed by Academy Award winner Bob Ringwood and inspired by fashion iconoclast Jean Paul Gaultier"

It looks kind of broken!

Must have been treated with disrespect like in an Aliens style bug hunt.

An actual translucent prototype Big Chap costume created by late Giger himself.

Unless I go from rags to riches in one and half months, I can't dream of it.

The costume expected to reach a “conservative” high bid of $60,000.

Sadly as its Latex then if they DONT get regular Care then they can go HARD and Crack and Discolor....

With the Technology we have TODAY they could Finally Pull Off what HR Giger had Envisioned on Screen, Sadly in the Late 70's they could NOT have Pulled this Off Right.
