Alien, as in the movie is one of the most popular movies in America. There have been several additions to the first movie such as {Aliens vs. Predator} and the other two Alien movies by themselves. If you wish to be a part of this idea then keep reading for your how to on Alien costumes. You also have other ideas like the Aliens we typically see in Hollywood movies, but they are typical and rather trite. Alien the movie offered a different option.

Things You Need:

Instructions:

You can purchase a pretty great Alien costume online, but if you don't have the money or just want to make your own you will need specific materials. First the main body of the Alien will need to be created. You should be able to find the perfect material in a craft store. The alien is kind of a gray creature with a little bit of brown thrown in. The Alien is also a scaly creature.

The material you obtain should have this quality to it. There are reflector style materials that offer a shimmery look to give you the gray and brown look. You can also just use gray clothing like sweats if you are not handy with a needle and thread.

Next you need the hands and the mask. You can also make these items out of the material you buy. The alien head is the most difficult because it is oddly shaped. You will need some cotton or other bunting like material to give your head that extra bump in the front or back. Just make sure the material is not weighted too heavy so that the mask will not stay in place. You will also need to create eye holes. The hands will need to have long finger nails painted black attached to the material or your own hands.

By following these steps you can create your perfect Alien costume.
