NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Halloween is just around the corner! Our producer, Taylor Feingold, is showing us a new do it yourself costume each day this month.

Earthlings, I come in peace!

For today's costume, I started out with any neon green and metallic clothes I had. I came up with these metallic leggings and this lime green dress. I added metallic and black boots to make it look like I'm really from space.

The hair and makeup are key to really give off an alien vibe. For my hair, I put in half-up, half down in two pigtails. I could've also used the same look but with two buns instead. For my makeup, I used lime green eyeshadow in a few key places, first on my eyelids, then as a contour. I blended the shadow below my cheekbones, temples and around my forehead, basically in my hair line. This gives off an eerie alien vibe without having to paint your whole face. As for my lipstick, I started with black lipstick, specifically Perry Panther by Katy Perry for Covergirl. I then layered on, starting in the middle of my lips,  first a royal blue then a turquoise metallic loose eyeshadow. I finished with a short winged eyeliner and some mascara!

Check back tomorrow to see what kind of other costume tricks I have up my sleeve. Happy Halloween!
