Stacey Solomon Transformed Into Vilgax From Ben 10 For Halloween

British singer, X Factor finalist and ITV’s Loose Woman panelist – Stacey Solomon was transformed into an alien from Ben 10 for her son Zachery for Halloween. Cartoon Network UK collaborated with BAFTA-winning studio Millennium FX who have previously provided costumes and makeup for BBC’s Doctor Who and has transformed Stacy into the green tentacled alien overlord – Vilgax. In the Ben 10 reboot, Vilgax was introduced in the Omnitricked four-part special episode. Stacey Solomon previously promoted a Ben 10 campaign in 2012 called the Alien World Record challenge, where several kids built a giant alien made out of plastic bricks to break the Guinness World Record for “The Most People Taking Part In Building A Plastic Brick Sculpture”. The sculpture was a model of the building block alien – Bloxx from Ben 10 Omniverse.
