This homemade costume for women entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Daniele, the 'Extraterrestrial' costume creator:
this entire thing i worked on for months. where to start... the headpiece was made with intricate cut work into a thick bendable foam, on top of that i put silver glitter all over and glue, then glued teeny tiny mirrors all over and some crystals. the leg pieces the same as the headpiece, backpiece as well, backpiece had a padded hanger and was covered in metallic duct tape. i had a silver body suit on and the only thing cut out in it was the eye holes. which i had false eyelashes, the manson colored contacts, and metallic silver paint around my eyes. i took a bra and put huge crystals on it and lots of little mirrors all with super glue. then i took about 9 belts. i spray painted them silver and glued little mirrors all over them, then i added 3 hula hoops that i had spray painted silver and attactched them to one of the belts. on the hula hoops i connected a bunch of white glow sticks which cant be seen in the pictures, they look yellow in the pictures. also had them on my neck and arms. i had spray painted some boots metallic silver also. i think thats it lol. i went to 2 diffrent halloween contests that were linked to each other and i didnt win anything which was weird, what beat me was a colonel sanders and a bucket of chicken store bought costumes, and a edward scissor hands , the rest of costumes had no creativity, so i am really not sure what happend, maybe everybody thought i bought mine too. people were in awe and took tons of pictures. everybody told me i had to win. i got told i was beautiful lol, amazing. it was alot of fun. i couldnt drink or eat for 2 hours before wearing and while wearing because my mouth was covered and i couldnt use the bathroom during this time either lol not sure how i made it!!! costume ended up costing $400
