Youre craftsmanship on this just blows me away. Just getting the pieces is only a small part of the battle, its the actual assembly and execution that is another art form in itself. Great job so far!

Would Plasti-Kote spray work on this for a wet black skin look?
Otherwise Pro Adhesive with airbrushed gloss black would look killer. I know monstermakers.comhas black pigment for latex. I have a small bottle, (only a couple of oz.) that can pigment 5 gallons! Great looking costume!

thanks again...
i will continue to paint it in black latex...my main problem is that i lose a lot of brush, cause latex glue on them, after some layer...grrrrr, if you can help...thank you

Try a 4" foam trim roller for any large areas as an option and keep it or the foam brushes in the bucket of latex between coats so the latex doesn't dry. You'll get more use from each brush.

You can also use a foam brush to get inside the recessed areas.

two days before the alien goes out...
and i still have some work, but think if all goes well tomorow,it will be a great suit...
i will post pics really soon...
i add lips,fabrics to hide the eyes, more black latex, a corset ( to be thinner than i am... ) a support for the tail that can be removed easily... jaws tenders...new nails...
and cast new teeth in resin...
tomorow, i have to cover the back latex, with some kind of clear protection,glue the new teeth, and add something to make it salivate (only a baxter with some tubes that will bring water under the lips on the teeth...)
so i will not sleep a lot...
