This space-themed DIY costume comes courtesy of Destiny Paquette, who shared it with the TODAY Parenting Team.

There’s also a full tutorial on Paquette’s blog, Suburban Wife City Life, where she shows how she added a toy solar system kit to a black skirt, and paired it with a yellow shirt and crown and black tights to transform her daughter into something out-of-this-world.

“This costume turned out so great,” Paquette wrote. “We love how it’s both a science lesson and something fun. I promise you it will be hit in your child’s class or while out collecting candy.”
