X-Files Halloween Costume Ideas

X-Files Costume Ideas

If you're a fan of one of the creepiest science fiction TV series of all time, then why not pay homage to Mulder and Scully's quest for the truth by dressing up as a character from The X-Files? Can you hear the theme song playing in the back of your mind already?

• Humans

Although there are a lot of monsters on the show, most of the characters are indeed human (or mostly human). If you want to be an FBI agent like Mulder, Scully, or Assistant Director Skinner, then your going to need a dark suit, a white shirt, and a fake badge. If it's cold, wear a 90's-style trench coat as well.

If you're going to be a female agent like Scully, the aesthetic of the show was to run from aliens in impossibly high pumps, so make sure that you have the right shoes. Wear a wig if you need one, too.

Finally, throw in a fake gun to make yourself look official, even if that's not going to do much to stop the impending colonization or the spread of alien DNA to the masses.

• Allain & Monsters

The aliens portrayed on the show were mostly humanoid in appearance, so going with the classic gray alien will work just fine. Get an alien mask and a gray zentai suit and you'll be ready to kidnap Scully and run experiments on her in your spacecraft.

In addition to the alien storyline, there were tons of random monsters on the show, many of which were extremely creepy and perfect for Halloween. While you might have a hard time embodying the disgusting fluke-man from "Host," you could instead go for a more simple monster, such as Tomms from "Squeeze."

In other words, wear a dress shirt and some pants, and then cover yourself in fake bile. You could also be any of the few garbage-based monsters that were on the show by covering yourself in dirt. Oh no, who ate all of the Halloween candy? We're not saying it was aliens...but it was aliens. Enjoy your Halloween as a creepy character from The X-Files!
