The problem of Alien becoming increasingly relevant in the modern world due to migration and globalization processes. We define an Alien with a number of markers: vestimentary, alimentary, visual appearance, religious affiliation, etc. The purpose of this article is to identify vestimentary markers associated with scale images “Own - Alien - Monster” in traditional clothes of old believers and their modern transcriptions, allowing to distinguish their religious affiliation. The main material for analysis was the field research of the costumes of the old believers, published in scientific periodicals and monographs. The methodology of the study is to identify the underlying vestimentary token appearance of old believers, an analysis of their involvement in a range of images “Own - Alien- Monster” in synchronic and diachronic aspects.
