“Final report of the commercial starship Nostromo, third officer reporting. The other members of the crew… are dead. Cargo and ship destroyed. I should reach the frontier in about six weeks. With a little luck, the network will pick me up. This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off.”
On Alien Day, April 26th, no one can hear you scream! It’s fitting that Alien Day lands on a Thursday this year because Fright-Rags have released a killer retro throwback collection! Based on the classic 1979 Alien Halloween costume designed by Ben Cooper, the Alien Day collection features a soft black t-shirt and a collectible enamel pin of the iconic mask.
Fright-Rags have also recreated the original mask and box, but on a smaller scale. The mask itself measures approximately 4.25” x 6” and boxed it is approximately 5.5” x 6.75”. This mask is limited to 426, and the t-shirt is not included — all items in the collection are sold separately.
“For the past several years we’ve been reproducing vintage-style Ben Cooper and Collegeville vacuform masks, selling them with t-shirts as a box set. These were full size masks in full size boxes, meant to replicate the costumes from our childhood. However, with the more masks we released it became apparent that these take up some serious space! I have stacks of them on my office shelf and as much as I love looking at them, they take up a lot of collectible real estate. We wanted to be able to enjoy the warm nostalgic fuzzies these sets gave us, but without cluttering up people’s display cases.” – Ben Scrivens, president of Fright-Rags
“A word of warning…” The retro Alien Day (4.26) collection is on sale now at Fright-Rags.com
