It has been a big year for outer space. Just last week, two American astronauts conducted the first all-female spacewalk outside of the International Space Station. A successful manned mission to Mars seems increasingly likely. And this year marks 50 years since Neil Armstrong became the first human to step on the surface of the moon. Prepare yourself for an out-of-this-world Halloween experience with this zip-front orange jumpsuit, complete with NASA logo patches.

Avengers: Endgame was the highest-grossing film of the year. Not only does this movie cap off a 22-film, decade-long cycle of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, but it also provides plenty of fodder for Halloween costumes. Get your gang together and dress as Hawkeye (fighting as Ronin), Ant Man, Thanos, or just about anyone from the celeb-filled cast of characters. Our pick: fan-favorite Shuri, princess of Wakanda, who makes a memorable appearance in Endgame (not to mention her starring role in Black Panther).

The “zipster” is the Halloween version of the adult onesie. And what’s not to love?

While you can find this style of suit in any number of animals—from a giraffe to a fox to an adorable sloth—this lemur, with its cute black-and-white face and striped tail, is our pick.

You might also add a set of wristbands, some free weights, and your own boombox. Don’t forget the high ponytail and scrunchie!

As an alternative to the vampire, witch, or even the ghost bride, we’re feeling the totally undead look of this zombie homecoming queen.

Pinterest published its annual Halloween Report, and “pirate” was among the few costume searches to make the top ten for both men and women.

We’re partial to this classic, swashbuckling look that includes striped pants, a puffy lace-up pirate shirt with matching wrist cuffs, a wide belt with oversize buckle, a colorful headscarf, and boot cover accents.
