Alien Halloween Costume Ideas

Alien Invasion Cosutme Ideas

When it comes to making your own Halloween costume, there is perhaps no costume genre that has more options than an alien from outer space. Whether you want to be creepy and kooky or odd and funny, here are some space alien costume ideas that are sure to launch your next Halloween party into orbit.

Green Alien

To transform into a green alien you'll need to purchase some bright green face and body paint from a local art store or Amazon. You can approach the paint however you'd like - cover yourself head to toe, or just do your face and limbs, only your face, etc. Just be sure to wear bright green clothing wherever your skin is showing. We want to show us much green as possible.

If you're on the creative side, you can create an optical illusion for the eyes. A lot of green alien images include big black eyes. You can use black face paint to apply large black circles around your eyes, extending down to your cheeks too.

Alien Astronaut

Do you want to be a sexy futuristic android astronaut from another planet? Who doesn't? Be an otherworldly space woman this Halloween and let everyone know that you come in peace. Here is how to put together a costume like this:

The first thing you're going to need is body paint, since it's not "outer spacey enough" if you just have one of the common human skin tones. Since everything in futuristic alien civilizations is made of chrome, find silver-colored body paint and cover all of the body parts that will show outside of your clothes.

Ideally, you would have a lack of hair, but sometimes this isn't feasible if you don't want to shave your head. If you can get a skull cap that you can paint over to make yourself look hairless, then that's good. You can also find a metallic or neon-colored wig. Nothing enhances a costume more than creepy contact lenses. Find gray ones if you want them to blend in creepily with your skin, or find colors that stand out, like red or even purple. Just make sure you get them from a reputable optometrist. Don't buy knock-off lenses, or this could hurt your eyes.

You're going to want some futuristic alien clothes. If you've ever watched science fiction from the 1950's, then you know that such space people only wear metallic-colored clothes that looks like aluminum foil. If you're crafty, go to the fabric store and try to find some metallic-looking fabric to build a pair of tight pants and a shirt. Otherwise, you could try looking through thrift stores for some clothes from the 80's; in that era, many popular outfits looked very alien and disturbingly inhuman.

Find some metallic high heels. You could also get some regular-colored high heels and spray paint them silver. Are you ready to shoot puny humans with your laser beams this Halloween? Join the galactic alliance with a space woman Halloween costume.

Hostel Alien

For a hostile, scary alien look, use menacing color such as silver or gray. Apply red contacts to give the impression of hostility. Be sure to supplement the look with bloody fangs, which can be purchased at any craft store.

Next, use colored cardboard paper or construction paper (the same color as your hostile skin) to cut out ears to enhance your extraterrestrial look. The ear shapes can be any size or shape you want, and we also recommend white and black construction paper to create fake eyes. The fake eyes and ears can be attached via a body adhesive.

For clothing, you have quite a few options - you can go with the classic look of a "silver body suit" which can be bought at a prop store or made by wrapping oneself in aluminum foil. Additionally, you can wear a suit of any other color But again, aliens are quite mysterious, so you can create whatever your mental image of a green alien might be.
