Clandestine Alien Costumes
Kiersten Essenpreis Pays Homage to the Best Horror Film of the '80s

By: Omar Yusuf (Star) Oct 31, 11

Whereas most fans of the cult horror film ‘They Live’ would’ve dressed up as Rowdy Roddy Piper—the protagonist and an infinitely easier costume—Kiersten Essenpreis opted instead to disguise herself as the movie’s bizarre-looking aliens.

They Live has the all the trappings of a subcultural smash hit: a dystopian narrative, a crafty alien species and a professional wrestler as the lead actor! Yet, the rub of the film occurs when Roddy Piper dons a special pair of shades which instantly reveal Los Angeles to be under the controlling influence of skull-faced aliens! Kiersten Essenpreis sought to honor the trope of a suppressive Martian regime in her Halloween costume, which is made entirely from craftstore-bought masks. Should you find yourself at a party wearing this awe-inspiring outfit, rest assured that anyone who recognizes the references is instantly a friend!
