This Space-Inspired Family Halloween Costume Is Out of This World
If you need an awesome and easy family costume for Halloween — we’ve got you. ICYMI, the Morin Fam is kind of a big deal around here (obvi), and they never disappoint when it comes to creative Halloween costumes. This year they really hit it out of the park (or rather, the atmosphere) with a few of the cutest squad looks around. Scroll on to learn how to recreate a space-inspired family costume that’s sure to bring the tricks *and* the treats.
To make a star costume, begin with a metallic silver unitard ($36). For the body decor, cut stars out of silver paper and attach them in a spaced out pattern to four feet of jewelry wire using hot glue. For the headpiece, make three arches out of wire and attach to the headband using hot glue. Once both pieces are dry, put on your wig and your star crown, and wrap the other piece of wire around your torso two or three times before attaching.
Next, you’ll be over the moon for your partner’s simple costume. Cut a moon shape out of cardboard and spray-paint it metallic silver. Once dry, put felt straps around the torso and attach moon with hot glue and velcro. Wear a black shirt, pants, and shoes and pair with a silver wig and the DIY moon shape.
Turn your kiddo into a tiny astronaut by spray-painting a box with silver paint and two liter-size soda bottles with white paint. Once dry, attach the bottles to the inside of the box using velcro and hot glue. Then use pens to freehand-draw details and attach the straps with velcro. Complete the look by getting an astronaut costume ($28) and then attaching the DIY jetpack for a totally costume-winning look. Your second little alien babe just needs a simple green overall and a T-shirt — guaranteed comfort and warmth all day and night.
