Original Duros Alien Spacesuit

The Duros a tall, thin species with large eyes, a slit of a mouth and no noses. Well experienced space travelers, they haul cargo and supplies to Imperial installations for the Empire.

George Lucas, who envisioned the bustling alien cantina before he’d even come up with a plot for Star Wars, actually shot the scene twice: Once in London, and then the following year in Los Angeles, with a whole new cast of alien creatures. The finished scene is a combination of the two shoots, and the photographs show the breakdown between the makeups created by Stuart Freeborn’s English crew, and those made by Rick Baker’s American crew.

The Duros mask was made by Rick Baker team from an orginal Ron Cobb concept art.

This costume was rent at Western Costume company who initialy used it as an ape Spacesuit for the movie Escape from the Planet of the Apes. But hese spacesuits weren't made for the film, they are actually suits originally made for the 1966 Jerry Lewis film, Way... Way Out, directed by Gordon Douglas. These spacesuits are therefore the creation of Costme Designer Moss Mabry (Mutiny on the Bounty, Rebel Without a Cause), they were just painted white since their original color was silver.
