A traditional astronaut suit is white. If you have it or can arrange a white jumpsuit that will be perfect; or else, take white pants and a plain white t-shirt for the basic astronaut suit. Make sure that the t-shirt is plain with no print on it.

Space-Themed Patches

We all love the space-themed patches. These patches make the costume look genuine and it speaks for itself. Cut-outs of these patches are easily available in the shops or via Amazon. If you wish to save more money, you can get the prints of these figures, cut them out and paste them on the clothes. These cut-outs may include:

  1. A logo of NASA
  2. Planets
  3. ‘Space Shuttle Mission’ logo

Fabric Glue

You may then glue those patches to the clothes. Make sure you use strong fabric glue. Don’t use regular glue because it won’t be able to hold the patches for a longer time.

If the patches are on a fabric, you can even stitch the patches on the suit where your kid wants it. Stitching it would make it more durable.

The Rocket

What is an astronaut without a rocket on the back?

  1. For the rockets to be worn on the back:
  2. Take two big large water bottles
  3. Paint the bottles a dark blue color, and glue them on the back of the shirt in an upside-down position.
  4. For the fire at the open ends of the bottle, you can glue some yellow paper strips on it. Paint the ends of the strip to give the perfect vibe of the fire.
  5. Do it for both the bottles.
