Colonel H. G. Shaw claimed that he saw three tall and thin humanoid figures. "They were without any sort of clothing, but were covered with a natural growth as soft as silk to the touch and their skin was like velvet."
Early UFO, abduction encounter investigated by New York artist Budd Hopkins.
"These people - I call them people, I don't know what they were - looked like a diving suit with a head shape at the top and very distorted, short-looking body. It was weird."
All the figures were similarly dressed in grayish one-piece tight fitting clothes and were wearing helmets but their faces were concealed behind masks from the front of which emerged one flexible pipe which reminded him of a breathing tube. Facchini later said he found them to be of the same size than human beings, about 1 meter 70.
In 1981, Italian ufologist Ezio Bernardini met him, and re-interviewed him. Nothing in the story had changed. Facchini told him that when he saw the moon landings on TV, he was stunned that the astronauts' suits reminded him to the suits of his visitors. He described their clothing as "diving suits" in 1950, but now he understood that they were "space suits" or earth-landing suits if you will.
I left my motorcycle near a tree and walked toward the spot which Gabriella had pointed out. When, however, I reached a spot about 55 meters from the object, I realized that my first impression had been wrong. What I had seen were two men who were now about 40 meters away from me. They seemed to be dressed in some shiny metallic clothing. They were stooped over and were looking at something lying on the ground.

Artist Walter Molino's impression of the incident, from the cover of the Nov. 14, 1954 issue of "La Domenica del Corriere," an illustrated Sunday supplement to the Italian newspaper "Corriere della Sera."
Rosa Lotti nei Dainelli. About 1 metre in height, they were wearing a sort of grey overall, all in one piece, including the feet. On their backs they had short cloaks of a grey material, and over the one-piece overall they wore a sort of doublet, fastened, right up to the collar, with little buttons "like shining stars." Their trousers were tightly-fitting, "like the long underpants that our men wear in the winter."

Patrolman Herbert Schirmer. The entities had slightly slanted “catlike” eyes (that didn’t blink), gray-white skin, long and thin heads, with flat noses and slitlike mouths. They wore silver-gray uniforms, gloves, and helmets (which had a small antenna on the left side around their ear), and at the left breast of each suit they had the emblem of a winged serpent. Schirmer had the impression that the small antennas were somehow a part of their communication process with him - that part of their contact with him was mental and part of it was physical.
Denis McMahon. The other two wore grayish-green form-fitting coveralls and were only about four and a half feet in height. Remembered details after hearing Bud Hopkins on a radio show.

As he stood watching he felt somebody touch his arm, as he turned around two tall blond men wearing silvery one-piece coveralls confronted him. The men had several strange instruments hanging from pockets on the coveralls.
Johnny Sands. Sands described the humanoid clothing thusly: A black, silverish all-encompassing overall (the artist got his shades reversed in the painting) with no visible seams.
Ms. Lois Stovall, Mrs. Alice Buckner. The object was almost capsule-shaped. Inside crouched a human-shaped figure, all over gray in color, that looked puffed up, like a balloon.

Three silver-suited beings seen moving with odd gait, traversing hillside in terrain with heavy growth, no craft seen; search found 6 x 18 m oval depression, plus a number of smaller imprints.
Manuel Gordillo, Lopez Rivero. From Francisco Lopez Rivero's testimony we can indicate the following: The helmet was black or dark, and the rest of the body silvery. As to the sounds emitted by the being; as well as his movements, he agrees with the other witness. He seemed to be a very strong and tall being, of some two meters (6'7") or more.

They wore tight fitting metallic objects.
Katherine Francovich was walking her two large "attack trained dogs" on leashes through a deserted grove of leafless lime trees, when she heard a very loud noise. Turning toward the noise she saw a small humanoid standing by a tree. The being had grayish/pink skin, non-porous and almost plastic like. It stood about 4-feet 9-inches tall. It wore a snug fitting metallic looking outfit that clearly showed the shape of its body. The upper part of the being's head was disproportionately wide; the eyes were huge, black, and almond shaped, with no whites or pupils visible. It had two tiny nostrils and its lips were very small and not well defined. Its ears seemed to be dropped down a little bit, very small and pressed flat against the head. The arms were very long, without muscle tone, very skinny, extending into very long six fingered hands. Its neck was thin looking, the shoulders not well defined. It had a very slender frame and what appeared to be a small potbelly. But incredibly its thighs were over-developed, with well-defined bulging muscles on its legs. Its feet however were small. On its feet it had what looked like a cloth boot, made out of the same metallic material it wore for its clothes. Francovich and the humanoid stared at each other for a while. Her two dogs, normally aggressive, just sat down quietly in the presence of the being. Suddenly the being began to run, at a stunning speed, leaping with very little effort. The witness and her dogs ran after it, running a distance of several city blocks. Finally they came to a kind of tunnel that was formed from densely growing vines on dead trees. The being then darted into it and disappeared. At that same moment a powerful sulfuric stench became apparent, causing the witness to stop in her tracks. The witness felt there were other beings hiding in the bushes and quickly left the area along with her dogs.
They were dressed in tight-fitting and very durable suits of metallic silver color with a violet tint, with belts and round circles on their chest areas. They had long elbow length gloves.
He wore a two-tone gray suit, with a lighter V in the front and a black belt with a black tube on his right side. He also sported a triangular insignia enclosing a helical coil on the left breast of the suit.

A witness encountered a humming silver disc-shaped object on the ground. Three short beings only 30 cm tall were seen next to the object. The beings wore silvery-white inflated suits, with round helmets and appeared to be collecting items from the ground around the object. Ground traces and electro-magnetic effects were reported. No other information.
Mauro Diniz Brumana. Near the object stood two humanoid about 1.20 meters in height wearing tight-fitting metallic outfits.
Juan Achurra. These were short and silvery in appearance. Moving in a stiff robot like manner they approached to within 2 meters of the house. They appeared to be carrying something resembling flashlights.
Adailton Rodrigues. At this point he was able to see two humanoids about 1.20 meters in height wearing tight-fitting silvery coveralls and helmets. The humanoids appeared to be collecting dirt from the ground. After about 5 minutes the humanoids entered the object through an open door-like opening and the craft then shot up at fantastic speed.

Lech Chacinski. Lech describes these entities as being about the height of tall humans (approx. 170 cm tall) with a basic human form (2 arms, 2 legs, a torso and a head), wearing tight-fitting, seamless "overalls of a dull silvery, elastic foil" material. He states that these overalls seemed to be "pumped up from the inside" and were "integrated with their shoes and mittens." On their heads were "helmets" with some sort of a band around the forehead which had a light source in the center, and on the top of the helmet there was something that Lech thought was a communication device. He saw no insignia anywhere on their clothing, but on their chests were "colorful blinking [rectangular] boards" with "7 lights in each row," each light a different color. He cannot remember the combination of colors, but states that the lights were "falling down [in a sequence] one by one, like a fountain." They also had packs on their backs which looked like those worn by astronauts or cosmonauts.
