|An alien threatens Scanner|
In its natural state, an alien is about the size of a rat, but resembles something more like a baked potato wrapped in foil. Its method of dealing with enemies is unique; it leaps upon its victim and completely encloses them in a foil-like substance, taking control of their every bodily movement - hence the origin of Foil Man.
This "foiling" endows the alien with almost super-human strength, and potential invulnerability as the death of the "foiled" creature results in the release of the alien in its original form once again.
The costume that we've constructed for the film consists of 8
|Foil Man having his eyes fitted|
The glowing red eyes were constructed by Darren Wilkes and consist of two red LED's wired into a pair of swimming goggles. A plastic box containing the battery and switch to turn them on and off is concealed at the back of Foil Man's head. Getting into the costume takes approximately 15 minutes, and as you might imagine it can get pretty hot in there.
Many other pictures of Foil Man in action can be found in the diary section of these pages.
