    Description

    Sigourney Weaver "Ellen Ripley" spacesuit from Alien. (TCF, 1979) Vintage original "Nostromo" space suit consisting of heavy ivory canvas paneled and quilted jumpsuit with padded pockets at front and back, white netting and webbing strap and lace up embellishments throughout and with zipper back closure and triangular patch on left shoulder, (2) cast resin environmental regulators on wrists, and also includes a distinctive matching eyeball-shaped helmet constructed of cast fiberglass shell with the domed clear faceplate nested in the lidded, ornately etched frame of the helmet. The back of the helmet retains integral sculpted tech, some embedded LEDs and a spiral phone-style cord. Interior helmet features a small red light over the mouth area and cast resin static tech panels. The helmet is an original landing party helmet used in the earlier sequence of the film when the crew encountered the derelict ship. It has been repainted in white to match the helmet used in the climactic sequence when Ripley blows the Alien out of the shuttle airlock. Using authentic Samurai Warrior armor as inspiration and the French comic artist Moebius' distinctive style in design, John Mollo created the iconic spacesuits for the movie. Made to look intentionally bulky and utilitarian rather than pretty, these suits innovated the practical and gritty look of movie spacesuits in much the same way Star Wars made spaceships appear weathered and aged. The result was Sci-fi design so visionary that it doesn't appear dated even decades later. Exhibits production wear, with some minor soiling and tearing in areas.
