Replace Star Dust with Cheeto Dust in This Apollo 11 Sweat Suit

 |  |  |  |  December 30, 2014


You want to be an astronaut. If you don’t still admit that to yourself, you should realize that you did when you were a kid, until the stupid, adult ideas of practicality and “being reasonable” infiltrated your brain. You still want to be an astronaut. Sadly, your opportunity to get into a space suit has probably sailed on by by now, but this might be the next best thing.

It’s a little pricey at $139, and some commenters say that the seller wants $85 to ship this, because they presumably swapped out the weights of the sweatsuit and Armstrong’s actual space suit when calculating that. Seriously, is it dropped off by a Saturn V? Or maybe by Armstrong himself? Does it come in a box made out of actual Apollo capsule scraps? Or is it just a ripoff?

That said, it’s still cool, and when the seller realizes that none are moving because this shipping cost is absolutely stupid.
