The HOTTEST Alien Costumes | 8 Holographic Alien Costume Ideas

This post is about female alien costume ideas.

I wrote my other halloween costume posts quite a while ago, but as Halloween draws more and more near, I’m seeing an undeniable trend.

The amount of alien costumes circulating the internet is pretty insane. It’s a trending search term, and I can pretty much guarantee it’ll be one of the most popular Halloween costumes for college parties.

I can see exactly why these costumes are so popular. They’re sparkly and super fun, and you can dress them up or down as much as you want. They’re relatively affordable, and can be repurposed for other costumes or even just general party outfits.

Here’s 11 super hot alien costume ideas for college parties.

Essentially, most of the alien halloween costumes for college parties were all made up of chunky silver glitter, bright makeup, metallic holographic clothes, and galaxy prints.

Here’s the best of the best to absolutely rock each category of your alien halloween costume for Halloweekend.

HOLOGRAPHIC OUTFIT

Going the holographic route? Here’s two options, both under $20. An entire halloween costume for under $20? That’s what I’d call a steal

CHUNKY GLITTER

Add some extremely bright highlight, throw it on your arms, cover your chest in it. Alien costumes are notoriously glittery, and this is the perfect glitter to achieve your super cute look!

SILVER BOTTOMS

Skirt or shorts, both are super metallic and super cute.

HAIR GLITTER

Chunky highlight glitter not enough? Top it off with some super colorful hair glitter.
