Invader Zim

I love GIR! He's just so much fun. Then one day, a simple gijinka version popped into my head. Actually a couple ideas popped in there, but I figure I should start here before doing the others.

It's a really simple costume, really. I bought a pair of round goggles and used silver spray paint for everything but the lenses. I painted the lenses his eye color using a combination of light blue and light green model paint. I made another set of lenses that I can see through so I can simply wear them all the time. I cut some plastic that is tinted at least close to the right color and simply laid them on top of some clear lenses. They fit right inside the cup and are simply held in place when screwed in. Love it!

I bought a grey hoodie whose front pocket I painted using a combination of almost neon green and a light blue fabric paints. It looks great and has a slight sparkle thanks to the green paint.

That's really it. Just jeans and sneakers (probably the maroon Converse) to finish it off. It's going to be so much fun! And really comfy. :)

Well...I've decided to add a wig. The more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea. Especially since I'm going for the whole hood-down look. I've got the Jett from Arda Wigs in Silver. I've sat down with some metallic silver Sharpies and hand colored the entire thing. There's just something about having that little metallic touch that finishes everything off nicely.
