Just the idea of the astronaut is one that can spark the imaginations of people everywhere. The idea that man can go out into the mind-bending vastness of space and explore should be enough to get anyone’s blood racing. It may have been an amazing forty years since man first set foot on the moon, but that doesn’t mean that our exploration of space is over forever. Someday, and probably soon, mankind will once again go out into the stars.
Popular movies such as Star Trek have helped keep the idea of space travel alive and well. Why even Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear has played his part in getting children excited about space travel. This is part of the reason why the Buzz Lightyear costume continues to enjoy such annual popularity at Halloween parties everywhere.
No one will ever asking you to explain your costume if you show up dressed in an astronaut suit costume. The classic image of the astronaut suit has been engrained into most people mind. Young or old, most people around the world recognize the astronaut suit and what it represents. Even the youngest among us realize that the simple astronaut suit represents a new era of hope and possibilities. This is, without a doubt, part of the reason that astronaut costumes are so very popular.
If you feel that you want to make a big statement come Halloween, one sure fire way to do it is to put on the astronaut costume. Astronaut costumes remind everyone of what we have accomplished, what we should have been accomplishing the last forty years and, hopefully, where mankind is headed.
