ABOUT interstellar aviator
- A cheap bristle brush
- Gorilla or fabric tape
This style of costume is one of my favorites. It’s comfortable, fun, and makes me feel like a badass.
To create this look, I combined multiple items I’ve acquired over the years including steampunk digital print leggings from Amazon, a scaley mesh long sleeve half shirt I found at Arc, the shoulder wear portion of a corset set from Amazon, some Harry Potter Quidditch goggles with flashing lights taped into the lenses, golden ram horns that I covered with glitter and wrapped with fairy lights, and a simple black tank decorated with UV fabric spray.
These ram horns fortunately come attached to a head band, so all I had to do was mod podge a heavy layer of glitter over them and wrap them with a stand of fairy lights per horn. I then taped the battery packs to the band with black fabric tape to conceal.
For the UV shirt, I printed out the logo of my favorite band Itchy-O, cut it out, sprayed it with fixative, and then coated it with UV fabric spray. Note: Make sure to have proper ventilation when performing this step. That stuff is toxic and pungent.
I made sure to carry a pen-sized UV light to occasionally wave over the shirt and activate it for a fun effect.
I finished the look with Black-Light reactive face paints and some glowy bracelets.
