ASTRONAUT COSTUME IDEAS:
In order to be counted towards the final total, all participants must wearing full astronaut costumes including a space suit and helmet. The costume must cover the whole body including the hands. So..you'll need a body suit, helmet, and gloves.
White spray paint or fabric paint may become your best friends. You can always buy a jump suit or a painter’s suit and paint it white. Buy some cheap gloves and paint them white. How about an old backpack and paint it white or even glue some 2-liter bottles of soda together for a jet pack!
Make sure to share your memories with us!
