Coolest Kid Birthday Parties

Coolest Kid Astronaut Costume

An astronaut costume is one of the kid's very favorite. And there are quite a few fully equiped costumes available (as you can see in the right column of this page).

However, if you're up to the challenge (and you've got the right stuff...), you can have fun creating your kid's very own space costume (and save quite a bit in the process...)

Take a look at a fun selection of homemade Astronauts:

The costumes to the right can help with igniting ideas and below are a few general tips to boost your creative juices.

Start off by preparing the air packs. Take two empty 2-liter bottles and tape them together with duct tape. You can spray them with quick-drying silver spray. Attach straps so your kid can wear it like a backpack.

Use white or orange clothes (body suit, overalls, or just white or orange pants and a shirt) and get some NASA patches (or just take a look at these cool patches and draw them on your own).

Have your child decorate the airpacks and the space suite with glow in the dark stickers.

Take a pair of old rain boots and color them orange. You can also make an orange belt to fit the costume.

I'm sure you'll be able to come up with a whole lot of other original ideas to add to the costume. As long as you're havin' fun, that's what's important.
