I’ve been dreaming of an intergalactic alien costume for years and years, but it never fully comes together in time for Halloween. Each season, the out-of-this-world idea pops back into my brain, waiting to finally land on Earth! The best part of this costume is that aliens can really be anything–a green martian, a space explorer, a slimy, evil monster, or even ET, but my vision is this: the Mousse Altesse Tights by Gerbe (“ALIENS!” was my first thought when I saw these super sheer tights. You could try any color, but I like absinthe), a bodysuit (like the Anja Teddy), the Lennox necklace, a homemade cape with a high collar, lots of green face paint, a sparkly green manicure, and big round sunglasses. Take me to your leader!
