Ideas for a Halloween costume incorporating a gray zentai suit.

You know, Green Man, but gray. I'm Male, 26, in Chicago. The suit is full body, but the hood can be pulled forward off the head.

The obvious is an alien, but that sucks.

The Greendale Human Being, of course.

A Weimaraner dog? Bonus points for a Parker Posey clone waving a "busy bee"!

How crafty are you? Accessories are of course, key.

Off the top of my head:
-Elephant (big ears, trunk, possibly peanuts)
-Rhinoceros (horns, cute ears and a little tail)
-Groovy Space Adventurer (holographic wrapping paper racing stripes, oversized gloves + boots, raygun, helmet)
-Personification of Grey Goo (this is much more abstract but in my world would involve attaching partially assembled grey lego blocks to myself and attempting to absorb everyone for "components")

Get some wings and some feather antennae and go as a moth. Or a nightgaunt.

Wear a fancy English-esque hat (a bowler or some such), carry a mirror and go as "Dorian Grey"? (Terrible, I know...)

At your age I’m going to bet you remember the Power Rangers, but do you remember the Putty Patrol?

Ultraman or a dying Mr. Hanky.

But the less-obvious would be an alien ballerina. Just add tutu and your version of toe-shoes.

Attach felt squares of varying shade of grey to the suit. You are a grey card, and can be used by everyone to ensure properly exposed photos all evening.
