Wayne Coyne

The Flaming Lips’ frontman makes for one of the most fun Halloween costumes ever, and there are plenty of wardrobe options.  Coyne is where futuristic alien chic meets colorful indie ringmaster, all very much inspired by David Bowie. Coyne’s 2008 looks are now classics, from the Paste cover where he donned a white suit, yellow shirt and a lot of fake blood to his role as “the alien superbeing” in The Flaming Lips’ Christmas movie Christmas on Mars.  Our favorite look, though, is this shiny blue suit from the band’s performance at this year’s Great GoogaMooga Festival in Brooklyn, though it will admittedly be a difficult find. The teased, messy hair, the necklace of fake flowers and recruiting a four-year-old to do your facepaint will be the easy part.
