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 8 super hot alien costume ideas for college parties.

You don't necessarily need to focus on the clothing for your alien costume. Get creative with bright makeup! I love how this costume uses such a bright blue - perfect for alien costume ideas.

If bright makeup isn't your thing but you still want a show stopping look, this is the perfect option.
I love how this person has the gems glued in patterns all around their face, and swaps out a smaller top for this gorgeous long sleeved sequin option.
3. Mesh Shirts and Hair Glitter
I love how this costume combines an angelic feel with the perfect out of this world reflective silver in typical alien halloween costumes.
The addition of the gorgeous hair glitter really tops off this look!

Want to be an alien, but need to wear your halloween costume to an event that you need to be much more modest than a college party?
This is the perfect option! With a long sleeve shirt and purple skirt, you'll look super cute but still be very appropriate for any family friendly events. This is one of the most versatile alien costume ideas.
I really like how this costume uses the galaxy print in full force. Plus, the blue lipstick and cute pink antennae are perfect for finishing off this look.

Throw together a black crop top, high waisted galaxy leggings, and some chunky glitter for an easy, DIY alien halloween costume.

This is that costume. You literally just have to change into it and you're good to go. Super cute, super easy, and super last minute! This holographic alien costume is one of the best alien costume ideas to rock your Halloweekend.
8. White Crop Top and Silver Skirt
A white crop top is a staple in any college party outfit closet, and this costume uses it perfectly!
I love how this costume only requires the shiny metallic skirt, and some chunky glitter. Super cute, and you can probably reuse the skirt for a party theme!
