Meet Bolaji Badejo, aka The Alien

Am I an idiot that all this time I thought that aliens were elaborately crafted puppets and robots with no one actually inside them? Yeah, I probably am. I need to watch those movies again.

Anyway, here’s what it looks like when the mask. It’s the Alien from the first movie, back when there was only one. I guess they were looking for a certain svelt body type, and Bolaji Badejo had it. Without the head it kind of just looks like a really elaborate skeleton Halloween costume. How could he see out of the head?  Is the top translucent? And holy crap you could have bought this thing? I am learning all kinds of things today.
