See the original designs for the spacesuits in Alien (1979) by the late Moebius.
Jean Henri Gaston "Moebius" Giraud (8 May 1938 – 10 March 2012) was a French comics artist who also contributed to films like Willow, The Abyss, Tron and The Fifth Element.
While H.R. Giger designed the Alien creatures, ships and sets, Ron Cobb designed ships and Moebius designed spacesuits.

Alien is a 1979 science fiction horror film directed by Ridley Scott and starring Tom Skerritt, Sigourney Weaver, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm and Yaphet Kotto. The film's title refers to its primary antagonist: a highly aggressive extraterrestrial creature that stalks and kills the crew of a spaceship. Dan O'Bannon wrote the screenplay from a story he wrote with Ronald Shusett, drawing influence from previous works of science fiction and horror. The film was produced through Brandywine Productions and distributed by 20th Century Fox, with producers David Giler and Walter Hill making significant revisions and additions to the script. The titular Alien and its accompanying elements were designed by Swiss surrealist artist H. R. Giger, while concept artists Ron Cobb and Chris Foss designed the human aspects of the film.
