Halloween Inspiration: Aliens

Halloween Inspiration: Aliens

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!

  1. Halloween Inspiration: Risky Business | Life In Lingerie Blog - October 16, 2012

    […] A few days ago I glorified my alien ambition–otherwise known as a stellar costume idea that has yet to see the Day of the Dead. Sadly, I always end up reserving the idea for “next year.” The reason? I have a shaggy pixie cut that begs to be incorporated into a costume! You see, short of wearing a wig, this hair style is a hard thing to work around. But, if I’m clever, I can turn the androgynous side of my look into a vital accessory. So far I’ve been a rough-n-tumble newsie and Paul McCartney in Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band…two of my favorite costumes to date. Maybe this year I’ll channel Tom Cruise in the iconic Risky Business dance sequence in the SSV Monument Sleep Shirt, a classic pair of white panties (I love the TEN Bikini and the Organic Cotton Bikini), white socks such as the Rib Opaque Thigh Highs or the Incroyable Anklet Socks in Champagne Dore (these have some sparkle to them, which adds a fun twist to the classic outfit), and a candle holder. I think it’s safe to say that most folks will instantly recognize the origin of this look, so pour me a whiskey coke and get ready for a show!
