This flat Earth costume is a bit of a head scratcher.

"Ted Lasso" overalls and "Squid Game" masks were the obvious Halloween costumes this year.

But the more daring among us ventured skyward for 2021's spookiest occasion. From rockets to space telescopes, space enthusiasts showed up in full force this year. So without much further ado, here are some of the most awesome space-themed outfits we saw.

Crew Dragon

Twitter user April Santos got out the duct tape and white poster board for a impressively accurate Falcon 9 and Crew Dragon spacecraft, both from SpaceX's fleet.

Our rating: four sick space tourists out of five. Her dog, however, didn't seem as impressed.

Swimming in Space

Twitter user The Flat Earther — presumably facetious? — put on an off-the-shelf astronaut costume and added a pair of inflatable armbands and swim ring. Because you'd just fall off the edge? Or find more water? Or something?

Anyway, two Earth discs out of five.


One Small Step

Self-anointed "astronaut wrangler" Christina Korp spotted "one of our neighbor's kids" dressed up as Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the Moon.

Our rating: five giant leaps out of five.

Webbed Up

Astrophycist Nathalie Ouellette dressed up as NASA's controversially-named James Webb telescope. She should be intimately familiar with the design, since she's the Canadian Science Communicator for the telescope.

Our rating: 18 hexagonal mirror tiles out of 18.

Creative Liberties

This particular, three-dimensional costume may not be the most true-to-life, but it's a valiant effort. Extra points for including both SpaceX and NASA's logos.

Rating: three Ground Controls out of seven Major Toms.

Space Toddlers

Here's another take on the SpaceX space tourist concept, in the form of adorable children's overalls.

Our rating? Three out of four crew capsules.

Bonus Round

And let's not forget about the astronauts on board the International Space Station, who have brought their own costumes along for the ride over the last two decades.

They're not eligible for a rating, of course — they have the unfair advantage of actually being in space.
