Unlike my sister, I find space rather terrifying. I've watched enough sci-fi to know that nothing good happens out there. Either your head explodes, your spaceship explodes or you just float off into the abyss. I'd rather take my chances here on earth thanks very much. While you're all off colonising other planets, I'll just stay and help Wall-e tidy up. One thing that does fascinate me about space is the thought of alien life forms. While I'm not convinced that there's anyone else out there, a diet of ET, Mars Attacks, Mac and Me and Xfiles has left me rather entertained by the idea. So for the space theme set by Heather Mac I decided to to put together my best alien inspired outfit.

The first component was these rather fabulous Sugar & Vice earrings. They'd been on my wishlist for a wee while so when I spotted they'd gone into the sale I was straight on it. They're so glittery and green! To continue my little green man theme I picked out my ASA tee. The green slime design definitely makes me think of alien goo. There's always some kind of goo involved in an invasion from outer space.

More green was added in the form of these creepy shoes and my fabulous ring that I picked up at the DJCAD degree show a couple of years back. Other finishing touches included my camera bag and flower crown. The bag because aliens are always coming to observe and study human kind and the crown because I'm obviously an alien princess.

I also tried something a bit alien to me when it can to my makeup for this look. Usually I head straight for bright reds, pinks and oranges when colouring in my lips but not this time. I got this Illamasqua gloss in the ASA Kewpie party goodie bag. The colour is Facade and is definitely not something I would usually go for. This is the fun of a goodie bag though, it can introduce you to something different. Putting it on I liked it much more than I thought I would. I was a bit worried it would make me look washed out but it actually has a nice caramel colour to it. I probably won't be putting away my bright lipsticks just yet but it's nice to have an alternative to play with now and again.

I'm pretty happy with my space themed get up and always enjoy an afternoon wandering around graffiti covered abandoned buildings. Don't forget, you can challenge us to style up your favourite outfit theme by being our next guest. Details can be found on our contact page.
