Alien: Covenant arrives this week and as any fan of the Alien series knows, the facehuggers are going to play a part in this movie somehow. To get a terrifying, horrific Xenomorph it first starts with the fast moving Facehugger that bursts from an egg and latches onto an unsuspecting bystander, this facehugger then deposits an egg into the host, which transforms into the chest-burster that apt to its name burst through the hosts chest killing them in the process, this evolves into your acid blooded Xenomorph. It’s the whole circle of life thing but in a sci-fi and horrific sort of way.
The facehugger is an integral part of the Xenomorphs life cycle and as such, has become an iconic representation of the Alien representation. It’s a great looking prop and luckily with the help of Odin and his DIY video you can now build your own.
Watch the video above and find out how he takes the wire from some clothes hangers, fake nails, foam, liquid latex, paint and a few other common items to create a posable and detailed Facehugger.
Do you think that you’d be willing to make your own Facehugger? Let us know in the comments below.
