Astronaut Costume September 5, 2010

I posted a “Wanted” request to my Freecycle.org group a couple of days ago:

“WANTED: Child’s Astronaut Costume (Stanton)

I’m looking for a child’s astronaut costume (and/or any related paraphernalia, such as a helmet, boots, etc.) for my 2 1/2 year old son. He can wear sizes anywhere from 24 months to 3T (possibly 4T).

This request has a two-fold functionality, as he’ll not only wear it for Halloween, but also for his rocket themed birthday party in December. And maybe even around the house everyday! LOL!

Thank you so much for the consideration! I can pick up anytime.”

And I couldn’t believe it.  I was offered, from TWO different people, an astronaut helmet, and an “astronaut case”.  Here are the emails:

we have a white helmet that would work.  it’s just a white plastic helmet with a large hole in the eye area. I’m near McFadden/Magnolia.  let me know if you want to pick it up.  I’ll set it outside by the door if you want it.

I picked up the helmet and it is perfect!  It’s small, for a child and though it’s not pristine, it’s totally workable!  I’ll have to add some padding on the inside and stickers to the outside.  Christian is going to love it!
And here’s the email I got tonight:


Don’t know if you found an astronaut costume yet but I do have an “astronaut case.”  It was in the back of a closet but never used.  It is a case with a flag, silver wrist bands, binoculars, etc.  If interested, please email me.  Also, familyfun.com has lots of halloween costumes to make.


I’ll be picking up the astronaut case tomorrow.  I’m excited to see what the “etc.” is!

What more could an astronaut need besides a flag, silver wrist bands and binoculars?!  Wheee!!
