Astronaut Costume Ideas for Halloween 2021

Space is popular once more! With SpaceX finally bringing astronauts to the Space Station from American soil, billionaires launching themselves into low-earth orbit, and a new space race back to the moon and on to Mars, it seems like space is on everyone's mind once again.

That means dressing up as an astronaut will be a popular choice for Halloween in 2021. You can dress up as a traditional NASA astronaut, or get a totally different interstellar look that uses non-traditional colors or styles. Here are some great astronaut costume options for Halloween 2021.

White EVA-Style or Heat-Reflective Astronaut Costumes

White jumpsuits are worn during EVAs, or spacewalks, to protect astronauts when they are exposed to space outside of their vehicle.
