We’ve all seen the iconic images from space. Whether putting the first steps from man onto the surface of the moon, or hovering tethered to a space shuttle 200 miles above Earth’s surface, the white NASA space suit is synonymous with bravery and bold exploration. While not as bulky as the real deal extra-vehicle suits worn by NASA astronauts, our spacesuit costumes are lighter and more well-suited for partying back here on planet Earth. But they still evoke the classic images of an outer space expedition! Check out these spacesuit costumes to see if one of them is just right for your adventure.
Are you planning on making your first foray into space? Then first steps first. We’re going to have to equip you with a real deal space suit. (Those space walks wouldn’t work out quite right without one!) It’d be a pretty tall task to try and wrangle a real suit out of the lockers at Cape Canaveral, so why not just try this white astronaut suit costume instead! Complete with NASA and American flag patches, you’re going to feel real deal official. Like ready to orbit the Earth official! Just complete the astronaut costume with a helmet and gloves, and you’ll be ready to make some needed repairs on the Space Shuttle. Good luck!
Kids Astronaut Costume
Of course, any little guy or gal is probably chomping at the bit to make their first moonwalk. We don’t need to tell them that it’s going to take years of training quite yet, but we can give them their first taste of the astronaut experience with this signature white costume. The base costume has the signature details of a real deal astronaut uniform, and we sell all the coordinating accessories for spaceflight separately. With authentic looking NASA badges and trim, we’re sure your kiddo will be ready for their first mission with this suit. Have them accompany Mom and Pops on a brave mission… even if the mission is just doing reconnaissance in the neighborhood in search of trick-or-treats!
Women's Astronaut Costumes
Ladies are some of the greatest astronauts in history, so we’d be quite disappointed if the only options for astronaut costumes were bulky oversized suits designed for guys. Fortunately, that’s not the case, as we have space suits specifically for the female form! Check out these women’s astronaut costume options if you’re a lady who’s got her mind set on going into orbit. We’re sure they’ll be just the thing to let you blast off!
Womens Astronaut Costume
Sure, spacewalk suits are great if you’re in the deep cold vacuum of space, but if you’re on a mission, you’re for sure going to want to spend your downtime in something more comfy while you’re safely inside the shuttle. Like this jumpsuit costume! It’s tailored with a female cut, which means you can spend your time on the space station without having to float around in an oversized and ill-fitting space suit. With a slick white and orange design and stylish features, you’ll be able to adapt to living in zero gravity with no trouble.
Sexy Astronaut Costume
It takes a lot of training to become an official astronaut before you can even think about blasting off. Like lots! Which, naturally, means you’re going to be spending a big chunk of your space career right here on planet earth in classes, flight school, and advanced training. You’re going to have to hit the books hard, but we’re sure there’s going to be plenty of nights when you still want to go out, too. That’s where this astronaut costume for women comes in. Finally a space suit that’s perfectly suited for clubbing! Yup, this sexy astronaut jumpsuit will have you ready to dance the night away at the hot spot just across the street from Cape Canaveral. Just don’t party too hard—you’ve still got to make it to flight class on time tomorrow!
Men's Astronaut Costume Ideas
Plenty of famous men have made the trip to outer space, but if you’re not quite so famous, we’ve got plenty of looks for the average Joe to become one of NASA’s heroes too. Whether you’d like a casual style for hanging out on the International Space Station or you’d like an adult astronaut costume that’s ready to help protect you from the harsh environment of outer space, these men’s costumes will make you feel like one of the most famous astronauts who’ve officially left the Earth’s atmosphere!
Orange Astronaut Outfit
The iconic image of the space suit from missions like the moon landing and space walks on the International Space Station has generally become synonymous in our minds as what an astronaut wears basically all the time. But astronauts sure don’t wear them when they’re safely in their space shuttle or station. That certainly wouldn’t make sense! This orange men’s costume is styled after the orange Advanced Crew Escape Suit used by NASA astronauts on launch and re-entry. These ACES suits can be fully pressurized in case of decompression while in their vehicles. A vital piece of equipment in its own right, this costume inspired by the ACES suit is ready for all of your space adventures!
A classic style that’s well suited for Halloween fun or any other kind of costume shenanigans, this white astronaut costume cleverly combines both the famous heavy spacewalk suits and the more wearable Advanced Crew Escape Suits. Authentic looking flight badges mean you’ll be able to convince everyone at the party that you’re a real space commander, and even if the suit alone isn’t convincing enough, you’re probably going to want to snag a space helmet and backpack so you look ready to do a moonwalk. Of course, you could just skip all the outer space jazz and do a Michael Jackson style moonwalk out on the dance floor. We’re sure that would be a huge hit at your party too!
Children's Astronaut Costumes
Of course your child is already rarin’ to go on an outer space adventure. We can’t blame them one bit! Exciting movies and cartoons make being an astronaut super duper cool, so we’re glad that the next generation still has their sights set on space. You can help foster their interest by outfitting them with out of these kids astronaut suits. With styles for kids, toddlers, and even newborns, every member of your family is going to be ready to go into orbit!
Child Astronaut Costume
If you’re wondering why orange is the color of choice for launch and entry NASA suits, well, the answer is easy. In case of emergency water landing, orange was chosen so rescuers would be able to easily locate crew members! We’re sure that your boy or girl would be able to safely pilot the ship on their mission, but this orange children’s space suit is a great choice. A stylish jumpsuit to stand out at the party, and with realistic badges, any kid is going to feel super official! (Bonus points on being able to keep an orange suit cleaner than the typical white cosume.)
Girl's Astronaut Costume
Of course, she might just want something a tad more stylish in mind than a standard drab NASA suit, and we have just the thing. This astronaut costume for girls! This lightweight jumpsuit is definitely not meant for space exploration, but it’s the perfect look for when she wants to make her new home on the International Space Station. She’ll be able to learn the ins-and-outs of living in zero gravity, and with this cool jumpsuit, we think she’s going to love being on the scientific mission!
Toddler Astronaut Costume
You might think your tot is too young for space exploration, but that’s not the case! We can get them outfitted like a true space pioneer with this astronaut costume for toddlers. As a pint-sized version of our adult astronaut uniform, this toddler costume comes in size 18 Months to outfit your littlest one like the explorer she’ll grow up to be. And sure, she’s probably not ready to endure the g-forces in that high speed blast off, but that’s no reason she can’t start training for the mission this Halloween. Strap them in for blast-off, and you’ll all be assured of a successful costume adventure!
Baby Space Costume
Even the littlest one in your household can get in on the outer space action. What, you’ve never heard of a baby being up in outer space? Yup, your newborn can join the space shuttle crew too with this adorable astronaut tot romper costume! With printed details and lightweight polyester material, it’s an easy alternative to a tot sized space suit, and you won’t even have to mess with all the complicated NASA equipment! Available in an infant size, even your newborn will be able to join the brave space crew. One small step for babies…one giant leap for mankind!
Astronaut Helmets and Accessories
Don’t even think about outfitting your authentic NASA costume without the right gear. That would be like boating without sails or paddles! Our accessories coordinate with our unique space costumes to let you complete any astronaut-themed look. Having the right pair of gloves is going to let you perform that important repair while you’re on a spacewalk at the space station. Mission critical! And you’re going to want a backpack to keep all the required gear close at hand while you’re exploring the moon. Just whatever you do… don’t forget the astronaut helmet! The most critical piece of space gear is also pretty important for getting the party look just right back home here on planet earth. You won’t need it to supply your oxygen, but it will look pretty sweet while you’re boogieing out on the dance floor. (Just make sure you grab some space boots so your moves look super slick!)
