I had to get one more mommy daughter costume in before October comes to a close. This iconic shot from Aliens with Sigourney Weaver holding Newt was one of the first images I saved when planning this project. The costume was a total DIY and the only item purchased new were the blue scrub pants. The wig I’m wearing is the same one I wore for Rocky Horror and Flashdance, the white t-shirt I wore for Orange is the New Black and The Dude, the shoes were borrowed from a friend, Evelyn’s overalls were thrifted and the nerf gun we already owned which I spray painted matte black. To make our clothes look dirty I rubbed old coffee grounds into the fabric a few times. My friend Britney worked her photoshop magic and turned the original, boring photo into the image below. Have you ever seen Aliens?
