This Talented Artist Hand-Stitched an Incredibly Elaborate ‘Alien’ Facehugger Mask

Few things have influenced sci-fi culture like Ridley Scott’s Alien franchise. Countless gut-churning moments of alien grossness are permanently burned into my memory.

For those Alien super fans out there, this artist has just the mask for you. Now, you can wear your own facehugger-inspired mask out and about to help fend off COVID-19.


The masterful craftsman and owner of Pirate’s Leatherworks hand-stitched this super intricate, sci-fi infused face mask as a creative solution to the pandemic.

Originally, the artisan made the mask just for himself, but the design thrilled the internet way too much.

Before long, he posted another photo of the mask, along with a link to an Etsy page for prospective customers and future orders.


If you’re interested, the masks are currently selling for $242.36 each. That’s a pretty hefty price for a mask.

Still, consider all the moving parts. This is a hand-stitched mask made of genuine leather. Not only is it wholly unique, but the materials are also super durable and long-lasting. Mostly, that means they’re pretty expensive. Also, all 52 buyer reviews gave the mask a five-star rating.

All things considered, close to $250 for a custom face mask like that seems like a pretty good deal.

Plus, this isn’t the first franchise this artist has made a tribute to in leather.

Now that’s something I’d shell out a lot of money for. After all, everybody looks good with a little leather accessory.
