Alien is a 1979 science fiction-horror film that’s a classic favorite among fans of the genre. It centers on the Nostromo crew (which Ellen Ripley is a part of) who answers the distress signal from a different planet. However, they are attacked by a rogue alien who invades their ship.

Ellen Ripley & the Alien are sworn enemies as they try to out-survive each other. Ellen Ripley wears the standard USCSS Nostromo uniform which consists of a green shirt, white button down, and grey coveralls with patches. The Alien, or the Xenomorph, is an otherworldly creature with a black skeletal body and a large, oblong-shaped head with wide open jaws.

The focal point of this costume is the alien head part. Then match it with a grey bodysuit that you can paint on to replicate the contours of the alien’s body. You can also get a skeleton rib cage, paint it black, and hang it out front for added volume to the costume. Then wear a tail to nail your alien look.
