Back in June, Matty Roberts created the “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” Facebook event, which rallied 2 million alien enthusiasts to raid a military base mythicized as a spot for extraterrestrial sightings. Originally intended as a joke, Matty’s call quickly caught fire as a viral quest to “see them aliens.”
Today, the initial storming has now transformed into a three-day festival called Alien Stock. From 9/20 to 9/22, believers in “close encounters of the third kind” can gather in the town of Rachel, Nevada (known as the closest location Area 51) to hear live music, eat, camp out and discuss aliens all weekend.
In response to these events, talk of aliens has invaded online posts, stories and memes all summer long—and the hype is still going into fall. Inspired by the current fascination with all things extraterrestrial, we’ve created a green alien makeup look perfect for all your space-themed parties or even this Halloween.
