Astronaut Costume

Head to Zero Gravity This Halloween in a DIY NASA Space Suit

Houston, we have a costume. Whether you're cosplaying as Dr. Ryan Stone in Gravity or suiting up for expedition Halloween, this is what you'll need to transform into a space-bound NASA astronaut, no space-walk training necessary.

Clockwise from left

  • Susana Jumpsuit ($56, originally $98) — A real spacesuit can weigh 180 lbs on Earth, so use this lightweight, slinky jumpsuit instead. This piece also has a beautiful crisscross back. It's a jumpsuit you'll definitely want to wear long after Halloween is over.
  • Skateboard Helmet ($20) — There's plenty of oxygen in Earth's atmosphere, so get headgear that'll allow you to breathe freely.
  • American Flag Decal ($1) — Wear your nationality loud and proud by sticking this decal on the front of the helmet.
  • Bauer Hockey Helmet Shield ($30, originally $40) — This clear glass covering can easily be attached to the helmet with hot glue or superglue.
  • NASA Decal ($4) — Make your affiliation known by securing the NASA insignia on the side of the helmet, by the ear.
  • Xbox 360 Headset ($15, originally $20) — Buy to communicate with mission control now, and use it to talk to your Call of Duty teammates when Halloween's over.
  • Junior Space Backpack ($40) — If you don't have time to get a white backpack and sew the necessary patches on, opt for this ready-made oxygen pack.
  • NASA Gloves ($12, originally $16) — White ski gloves would also work as NASA gloves.
  • Tretorn Silver Rainboots ($75) — Hop around on the moon's surface with big silver boots.
