I need help coming up with a costume for a pre-existing alien (no inventing my own).

-No full face masks
-No major body paint. A mark here or there is fine. Full face or arm make up is out.
-I want to be cute! (no coneheads! I do not look good as a cone head.)
-It need to be able to find an action figure/figurine/plush of the alien
-It needs to have something recognizable (ex: chick from Species doesn't really work, because she looked "normal")
-Not TOO complicated (I don't have much free time right now. I am capable of sewing/modifying things, though)
-Not too bulky. I'll be outside in the summer heat.
It can be from books, movies, tv, comic books, ads, whatever. It can be a little obscure, super geeky, very mainstream.
I'm not allowed to be Slave Leia. My dream would be Audrey II, but I don't have the time or creativity to figure out how to make that work well, and I don't want to have a crummy costume.
