* Octopus costume
* Red Cape
Gallaxhar despite being an alien looks a lot like an octopus. In order to make your own costume you should consider buying purple fabric from www.joann.com along with
a pattern for an octopus.
Step 1: The main costume is the octopus therefore you should have an overly large rounded head. Your eyes and face can just be covered by the purple material. To help keep the head standing up use bunting to stuff it. You can tie it around your chin to keep it in place if need be.
Step 2: You can just use a jump suit in purple for your arms and body. What you will need though is to create six octopus legs to hang around your two legs. This gives you eight legs.
Step 3: Your hands should have two purple gloves on them.
Step 4: The last object to create the costume is the red cape. The cape should tie around the neck, and go to mid thigh.
Based on these steps you will have Gallaxhar from Monsters Vs. Aliens. B.O.B. is another costume to consider especially for children so you have one alien and one monster to fight for survival.
