How To Make Your Own Alien Costume

If you've decided to take the plunge and tackle the homemade costume option, here are some ideas to help you turn yourself or a loved one into an alien who would be proud to live on Mars. Fortunately, over the years Hollywood has been laying the ground work by providing many alien life-forms so all you'll need to do is pick out your fav and start creating a costume that is sure to be out of this world!

Alien Touches For The Skin - First alter your skin color with a bit of special effects makeup. You can select a traditional alien green or opt for another color that suits your little alien-self. You can also adjust your features with a bit of nose putty. If you want to take it a step further, then add some body glitter to give your skin both color and sparkle.

Wearing a pair of over-sized sunglasses will give you that bug-eyed look. You could even glue a third eye to the bridge of the glasses, just be sure to add some false eyelashes to the eye for added interest.

Of course when all else fails you can opt for a mask, but be prepared to have a sweaty face.

Alien Costume Touches For The Head - When I was an alien I opted for a traditional bald cone head and I glued a flower to the side of the head. But you can also choose a multi-colored wig that has various fluorescent colors or brave the washable hair tints and create your own alien look.

You might decide your cone head or colorful hair is not quite enough; in that case add an antenna and that should instantly fix the situation and transform your head into alien-ville.

Alien Clothing Options - One of the easiest things to do is to decorate a leotard and a pair of tights to match your selected skin color. This will give you an all-over theme color. You can use florescent paints, glitter glue, sequins, and stick-on jewels to don your alien best. If you want to create the look of hair, then glue or sew pieces of faux fur to the leotard or tights.
