SCI-FI HALLOWEEN COSTUMES FOR CRAZY PEOPLE
MAYBE I SHOULD DRESS UP LIKE AN ALIEN MOMMY!!! SCARY!! HA
OK...the time has come again! One year later and all of the stores are full to the brim with all sorts of Halloween decorations, costumes, make up, things to stick in the yard (Green and purple glittered cats?!!! REALLY?!!!) and HUGE bags of candy. So, what are we to do when it comes to coming up with a COOL costume! If you are like me you do not have that much time to indulge in "Horror Shopping."
If I'm going out in the neighborhood with the kiddies I always put on my best "Witchy Poo" hat and black gear (not difficult since I wear black almost every day! ha) BUT this year I think I will try something a little "different." I'm thinking of going out as an ALIEN MOMMY! Isn't that cool?!!!!! It's a costume where everything on my body goes "with the sci-fi flow" like when a child says "Mom! I'm hungry!" My 10 foot slimy looking arm automatically picks up chocolate and shoves it in his cute little mouth PRONTO!! It's like I'm being controlled by a X Box 360! My son is saying his COMMAND and I am reacting like an ALIEN MOMMY without any EXTRAS! ha ha....I mean ALIEN MOMMY's never do more then one thing per command because they do not understand "earth talk" and cyber chips may run low so that she turns off completely! OH poor ALIEN MOMMY. She may have to be shipped off to some quiet and nice place where she can rest on a table for about an hour and a half while she is being taken care of and put back together. OK little one's?!!!!!!! THIS IS THE BEST COSTUME YET I TELL YOU! HA
GET AN ARTIST FRIEND TO DO IT...
Well Los Angeles (other places too!) is full of amazing artists and also people who actually work on sets and do professional make up! You do not have to be a star to get one of these talented artists to make you look like a sci-fi rock star! Even if you know a great painter/artist, give them a try and maybe pay them something instead of wasting a lot of money on a costume you will never wear again. That is what I would do if I had the time and somewhere to go! I mean if I looked like any of these pics in my small town, I would be the gossip for months! I think the ZOMBIE chick wig is calling my name! ha.
Well, my son is not into trick or treating anymore I think. Last year he made one last ditch effort as a NINJA all in black (that's my son.....ha) and he looked so real that some of the senior citizen candy givers were actually worried that they may get robbed! So I told him to take down his hood on his jacket! I think he said that he was going to be a "Fat man on a couch eating candy this year" which I think he got this silly joke from his cousins, but it did make me laugh!
So, I posted some of my fave sci-fi pics on google! They seemed cool and simple! It's like when you go somewhere and there is too much too choose from, you may go BATTY! But this way, I give you a few inspiring ideas and "voila!"
I just HAD to put the last pic in though because it is so damn FUNNY!
