The Martian Monsters
All good (okay, bad) exploitation films of the genre had to feature some ridiculous slathering creature menacing a female protagonist. Naturally, we have to have one.
This outfit is the most problematic costume envisioned for the film. The creature does wear clothing, which makes the costume somewhat less complicated that it would be otherwise. However, we will still require a full head/neck piece as well as suitable gloves.
Several approaches are being considered:
- "Furry" martian. This would be a sewn headpiece made of fur with eyes and some rubber or other material for any small bits of flesh that would show.
- Fur and rubber martian. This would involve taking a purchased rubber mask and rubber gloves and modifying it by stitching hair to it.
- Papier maché martian. Would involve making a really cheap headpiece from paper, paste and paint.
- Or some other technique as yet undetermined.

These concepts would most likely be of the fur & rubber style. In these concepts, the idea (not entirely successful) was to for a really masculine looking alien...low forehead, heavy-browed, and hairy.
