How to: Alien coming out of stomach costume

If you’ve ever seen Alien, you’ll know it for one of its most famous scenes – when an alien erupts out of Kane’s stomach. For Halloween last year, I re-created this moment with my home made alien coming out of my stomach top.

What you’ll need


Flesh coloured stockings

2 print-outs of the alien

Cotton stuffing or tissues

Sewing needle and thread


Red food dye

Sticky tape


  1. Lay down your top on top of some newspaper and also place some newspaper in-between the two sides of the top.
  2.  Pour some red food dye on the area that you would like the alien to protrude out of. Leave to dry.
  3. Cut a leg off of a pair of flesh coloured stockings and then and the midway point fold half of the stocking into itself to strengthen it.
  4. Fill with cotton stuffing or tissues until it is full.
  5. Put the top on and using a needle and thread sew the stuffed stocking onto the top in the middle of the bloody food dye area. As you sew it be sure to do it so that it protrudes out of the top.
  6. Then cut out the print outs of the alien and tape an image to each side.
  7. Voila! You know have an alien top that will be the envy of all of your friends.
