For Halloween me and my friends decided we wanted to do something completely different. I came up with the idea of a group alien costume. I wasn’t quite sure how we were going to pull it off.

Things we used to make the costume:

Black maxi dress
Light Green latex paint
Darker green water based body paint
Black body paint
Bald caps
Elf/alien ears
Prosthetic alien nose bridge

To start off we all put on our bald caps making sure our hair was completely hidden, put on the alien bridge using spirit gum to keep in place then covered our body with the light green latex body paint (needed a few coats to get the full effect). Once dry we used a sponge to dab on the dark green body paint to give a sort of scale effect skin.

Using the black body paint we each detailed large black eyes and lips. Once this was done we put on our alien ears using spirit gum to keep them in place (after being painted beforehand to dry) then finally we put our matching maxi dresses on to get the finished result.
