How to make an astronaut costume
Astronauts have been fascinating Halloween and party costumes for several generations. We are all fascinated with space and just what is hidden up there. If you don’t wish to purchase a costume this year you can follow the steps below on how to make an Astronaut costume.
##Things You’ll Need:##
* white jump suit
* cardboard box and white paint
* white motorcycle helmet or fish bowl
Step 1: The white jump suit can be found in almost any store or made from a pattern you find. The jumpsuit should be loose fitting as an astronaut suit usually is. You can even make the suit into two pieces if that is easier for you. You may want to sew on a couple of American flags to offer the suit the astronaut look.
Step 2: The accessories are going to turn the jump suit into an astronaut costume. The first thing you need to find is a cardboard box with the dimensions of 3 feet in length, 2 feet wide, and 1 foot thick. This is going to be your air tank and jet pack. You will need to paint the box white and secure white suspenders to the box. This will allow you to wear it on your back.
Step 3: Continuing in the accessory mode you will need a helmet. If you have a motorcycle helmet that is white you can use that. If you don’t and the expense is too much you can purchase a fish bowl. The fish bowl should fit over your head and be completely round. You will not wear it, but carry it. You just want to make sure you have the right size and style is all when you are looking. You will need to paint the bowl white in the back and around the side of the head. Only the front should be left as a visor.
Step 4: The costume is not complete without adding white gloves and boots.
