Take a walk on the supernatural side with an alien Halloween costume that'll definitely turn heads.
As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing in 2019, why not pay homage to outer space this Halloween? We don’t know exactly what else is out there lurking in the universe, which makes inventing your own DIY alien costume a blast! You may immediately think of little green creatures with googly eyes, or silvery, intergalactic extraterrestrials, but who really knows what aliens look like? That’s the fun part of inventing your own an alien Halloween costume, because no one can say it doesn’t look real.
You can go old-school movie monster and create a retro Martian look (think: lots of green, including skin, hair, clothing and antennae). Or, opt for a more modern space-age version (use plenty of silver or gold metallic materials, glitter, and face paint). It’s an easy costume to pull off—even at the last-minute—because the interpretation is all yours.
Whether you want to embrace your inner DIY crafter or you prefer the store-bought route for your Halloween costume, we’ve rounded up some fun and creative takes on outer space and its alien inhabitants. Here’s how to make your very own version of an alien costume—for women, men, groups, and kids—that will outshine any others in the galaxy.
