Hi, my name is Nicole, and last year, I went as an alien. What you do is dress all in black, and get a black cape. Then you can either make or buy a giant green head*. For your face, all you need is
green face paint, an extra attachable eye (optional), and black lipstick.
TO MAKE AN ALIEN HEAD:
- 1-2 yards green fabric
- 1-1 1/2 feet elastic
- green thread
- plastic bags
Cut out a large circle of green fabric. The larger you
want the head, the bigger the circle. Then, hem the
ends of the fabric, but leave enough space to get the
elastic through. The, when you are done hemming,
pull the elastic through the space in the hem. When
the elastic is through, connet both ends together with
the thread. Stuff your head with plastic bags to make
it stand up, put it on your head (tuck your hair under),
and you're ready to go!
Thanks Michelle for this great idea.
