You‘re sitting comfortably at a street café in summery temperatures trying to cool off with an ice coffee and suddenly you‘re witnessing an
alien invasion! That‘s what happened this summer when Miss Fetilicious and Lizanne Ligatio paid a visit to Earth. Finally, this event was
not documented only by amateur photographers, but by Matthias Wallmeier and Ligatio. So we have clear evidence: They are here!

Ligatio: We, Miss Fetilicious, Lizanne and I, were shooting at an event with the alien masks. After that

HR: As soon as I saw the pictures, I knew that there could only be one cover for this issue, and that was the Rubber Aliens. What do you think, what is the special fascination here?
Matthias Wallmeier: I think it was the mix of the theme (alien tourists exploring the earth), the very unusual outfits and the spontaneity of the individual scenes in public that made this shoot something special.

HR: Ligatio, you filmed everything. Will we ever see the footage?
L: Sure! The main reason for doing all this was…
