Here’s a DIY build of a life-sized Power Loader costume from the movie Aliens. Although it’s just for show and doesn’t work mechanically, the whole thing looks menacing and impressive for a Halloween costume.

The whole suit is 9 feet tall, weighs just 50 pounds, and fashioned from lightweight foam boards. You can get rest of the components needed to duplicate the exact look from you local hardware store. Sturdy wooden stilts are used for the legs, PVC pipes for the pincers, and hydraulic cylinders for the roll cage. The beauty of the Power Loader project is in the project details.
