This is my first entry, I hope I do this right! I found the idea for this while googling costumes, and it came up on instructables.com It was perfect for me and my boyfriend! I'm not much of a seamstress, so this was a big project for me. Ok, enough blabbing, onto pics!

One Halloween night, visitors from Mars arrived at my door....


Confused by their surroundings, they checked their Earth Book.


"Book book book book... Ooooh, Halloween."


They seemed very interested in my dog. "Dog? Woof! Woof!"


This was my picture inspiration:


Replicating the picture...


Eating chips...


And here's a video of my boyfriend eating the chips so you can see the mouth movement of the costume.

Thank you! I have to admit, I did not want to take it off and spent my day going yip yip yip... Even while I cooked supper.

Most kids didn't know who we were! They thought we were just some random aliens. The parents got it though, and a few small kids got a little scared, so I opened up the black mesh part (it was velcro) so they could see my face. I explained "Its like Cookie Monster and Elmo." They then loved it and actually came back  to see us again! That was the best part, getting the reaction of pure laughter.

I love this! I used to walk around the halls of high school speaking this alien talk. The just made my night, mostly because almost everyone I spoke to of these two characters thought I was mad, inventing random things. Fabulous work, btw

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
