On me: Area 51 Guard costume: hoop earrings / sunglasses / lipstick / camo tee / camo pants / Buzz Lightyear toy gun (old, this one is perfect) (great for shooting at escaping aliens!) / black boots (old, this pair would be great) /
On my husband: Area 51 Raider: tin foil hat-feel free to make your own, I am sure it will turn out better than his! haha / sign-cardboard and sharpie! Easy peasy
On my son: Alien rescued from Area 51: Green Alien bodysuit costume /
“They can’t stop all of us!” That was the battle cry of the Area 51 raid in September. While the raid didn’t really happen the way the joke meant it to, it did happen just a teeny, tiny, little bit. This makes it a fun family Halloween costume!
As you can see, my two teenage girls were too cool to participate in the family costume this year. Thankfully my son still think his parents are cool, and he suggested we dress as the Area 51 Raid for Halloween. I am so glad he did, this is really fun! He even taught my husband how to Naruto Run. Did I spell that right??? He did a pretty good job, haha 😉
So to make this costume happen, all you need is an Area 51 Guard, an alien, and an Area 51 Raider. My husband is the raider, and he didn’t want to carry the sign around when we take our son trick-or-treating, so he tied a string on the sign so he can be hands-free on Halloween. To be authentic, you can forego the string, and carry the sign.
He also attempted to make a tin foil hat. This one flies off his head. I recommend using bobby pins to tack it to your head. The tin foil hat is key for the Area 51 Raider costume. You must protect your brain from the government, who is trying to read your thoughts. haha
The Area 51 Guard costume is easy. All you need is camo and voila! You are an Area 51 Guard. I borrowed my son’s Buzz Lightyear gun to complete the look. This Buzz Lightyear toy gun is old, but there is a new one on the market which would be perfect. You can find it online here.
