Homemade Outerspace Alien Costume

Homemade Outerspace Alien Costume

After a lot of soul searching, a beam of light cast down from the clear, blue sky and stole my soul for a total of 6 hours. I don’t believe I will ever be the same but I did have the best Outerspace Alien Costume ever!

The aliens that captured me began by transforming my skin into what looked like silver-glitter paint. It took almost an hour to transform my skin completely. There was no human flesh to be seen from head to toe. My hair began standing on its own and produced silver glitter that would trickle down in my face every now and then. My ears became pointy at the ends and my feet were enclosed with gray, cute heels.

Finally, I was wrapped in green sequin material, given a space gun, and warped back down to Earth. All you would need to duplicate this costume is:
A cup to wrap your hair up and around
Hair spray
Glitter hair spray
Silver glitter body paint
Elf ears painted silver
Green sequin material
Grey/silver shoes or whatever you come up with!

I got the paint from this website
http://www.fxsupply.com/makeup/mu_body.html

It took a little over an hour to paint. It dries pretty quick. It washes off easily. It does rub off a little bit but not bad. I would sit on a towel in the car if you go somewhere.

I did not paint my whole body but I did paint any skin that was bare. It's totally worth it!

Coolest Space Girl Costume 14

Coolest Space Girl Costume 14

I made this Space Girl Costume for my little 3 year-old this year. She wanted to be a "Space Girl" and fly to the moon.

We started by making a simple dress/jumper out of some curtain material that had a silver backing. Someone had made adult pants from the material and I just dismantled it. My daughter was small enough that I just used the fabric from the legs. The pattern was Newlook 6576 (in case anyone is interested). A grey long-sleeved shirt and grey pants went under the dress.

We found a silver belt at the local thrift shop which became the holster for our "Ray Gun", a used toy from her boy cousins.

As for her helmet, a bicycle helmet covered in tin foil (maybe next year she'll go as a baked potato :) ).

The boots were a Value Village purchase from the summer-time. They were getting small so she wore silver sparkle shoes when we went out trick-or-treating.

She loved this Space Girl Costume this year - it'll be hard to top for next year :)

Coolest Alien with Flying Saucer Costume 13

Alien with Flying Saucer Costume

Alien with Flying Saucer Costume

My son wanted to be a space ship for Halloween, so after much thought and ideas bouncing all over the place, I came up with a solution! Why not be the space ship and the alien? And thus, this Alien with Flying Saucer costume was born!

A round cardboard disc and crumpled newspaper, secured with masking tape became the base for the space ship. I simply shaped the newspaper into the form of a donut. Covered it with paper mache (strips of newspaper dipped in a flour/water mixture). A coat of grey paint and added painted extras like windows and lights finished it off.

I added elastic straps (duct taped to the bottom of the ship) and dressed my son in green with a simple headband with green pipe cleaners for antanae!

He was the hit of the party!

Coolest Alien Queen Costume

Homemade Alien Queen Costume

Homemade Alien Queen Costume

I built a Queen from the 1986 James Cameron movie 'Aliens'. The head was built on a base of foamboard insulation, then used sprayfoam insulation for shapes.

The front incorporates a plastic skull from a costume shop, and I used black plastic to make the shiny skin of the head itself and spray painted the rest black.

The body was built on an old army backpack frame. PVC and cardboard, then liberal amounts of sprayfoam applied atop that.

The tail was made from 1/2" PVC with foam pipe insulation making the spines. Spray foam insulation helped make it organic looking.

The legs and arm plates were sprayfoam on cardboard, cut off the excess cardboard, then painted black.

It worked out great, and was very well received. I also won the costume contest at work!
