Homemade Alien Abduction Halloween Costume

I got my homemade alien abduction Halloween costume idea for my son's costume from this site! I took a backpack & put a rectangular box in it & duct taped it so it would stay put. I wrapped some bubble wrap around the box to add a little bulk. Then I put a jacket over top of that & stuffed the arms with bubble wrap to make them look real.

I made a paper mache head (simple balloon one!). I painted it citron green & painted huge black eyes. I also added 3 coats of glow-in-the-dark paint so it will glow when he's trick or treating. I enlarged the hole in the bottom of the head & used a paper towel tube to connect the head to a hole in the top of the box. Then I taped them really good with duct tape.

I draped cheap black fabric over the whole thing and cut out for its head & the center where my son comes through.

I stuffed an old pair of nylons with fiber fill and put them in a pair of his old pants and added socks. I sewed these to the opening and sewed them to the hands. I also sewed the hands together.

Then I took an old t-shirt & cut it down the back. I added a button to the back so it would stay together when pulled up. I sewed the bottom to the pants so when it's pulled up and buttoned it covers up the straps to the backpack. And that's pretty much it!

As anyone can tell from my son's face, he loves it!

We decided not to buy a costume this year, but make one. Thought this Homemade Alien Abduction Unique Halloween Costume Idea was impressing looking so decided to try it out. It worked out great. Took about 5 days to finish.

Used a long black jacket type hooded coat I have laying around, and got a balloon and paper mached it with 3 coats until it was hard so that the balloon would not deflate. After that looked around the house for a footed pajama suit that would fit my son, cut the back out and slid his arms in, and stuffed the remainder with cotton to fill in the legged look. Created some arms for the alien tied them around the kid to look as if he was being held.

This costume came as a total surprise to my hometown of about 1600. It turned heads, got Oh my god's and many questions. People even ran off the road trying to figure out how it was possible. They were stunned.

Next year I might even make something even more unique.
