MONSTERS PHOTO GALLERY #01
Many of you have requested me to do a special photo gallery on the
many monsters/aliens of Irwin Allen's TV series. Ok! Why not, this
could be kinda fun to do! All of the costumes and aliens made for
Irwin Allen's TV shows were created by master designer, Paul
Zastupnevich. On a very tight budget Paul came up with some of the
greatest and coolest monsters ever to hit the TV airwaves.
Irwin Allen loved his monsters and reused them on all of his TV shows.
With some different color spray paint, some slight variations or
modifications, a new face lift, a NEW monster was born and ready for
his/her TV debut. Paul's favorite creation of all monsters was that
of the one eye giant cyclops from Lost in Space. Using a jumpsuit, &
palm tree bark, this monster was alive and ready to attack the space
family Robinson's. When Paul passed away the costume was in storage
in his garage. Not knowing what this was, the costume was tossed
away forever. It is unknown if any monster costumes exist today?
But for me the memories of these neat monsters appearing each week at
the end of those darn cliffhangers will live on for generations.
This photo gallery is dedicated in the memory of designer, Paul
Zastupnevich. "Enjoy, and don't forget to leave the lights on at the
end of the hall way!"
I would also like to thank Paul Monroe without his work on his NEW
Lost in Space Anthology CD-Rom many of these photos would not be possible!
