Alien is an aesthetic inspired by extraterrestrial and otherworldly life forms, particularly in relating with these creatures, wanting to be these creatures, and not feeling in tune with humanity. It has themes of isolation, a lack of belonging, and rebelling against social norms, and elements of it can be found in fashion, music, video games, and sci-fi movies.

Visual[]

Alien visuals are typically centered around science fiction cartoons, neon lights, and blacklight art. Common colors are purple, cyan, green, dark blue, and black. Alien usually depicts aliens, UFOs, and space-based visuals such as planets.
