Honestly, there are so many fun and cute ways to style this costume but these essentials are a great place to start. Feel free to have fun mixing and matching different clothing and accessories. Whether you choose to pair a bikini top with metallic pants or throw a fringe belt over a silver bodysuit you really can’t go wrong creating a space cowgirl costume as long as you have glitter and a hat!

While doing research on the best space cowgirl costumes out there, I found that the best places to look for clothing and accessories for this costume were actually music festival-based clothing companies. Some of my favorites include Dolls Kill, Boohoo, RaveFix, and iHeartRaves. But, Amazon, Etsy, Shein, and other general clothing stores sell a ton of cute bodysuits and accessories that would be perfect for a space cowgirl costume as well!


1. Light Up Cowgirl Hats And Fringe Belts

Talk about a top-notch space cowgirl costume! From trendy clothing to sparkly makeup these girls really nailed this costume theme. The best part about this costume inspiration is that you can recreate it all with clothing from Amazon! Who doesn’t love a costume that comes with Prime shipping?

Like I said before, this costume is all about metallics, fringe, and glitter so be sure you incorporate that into your clothing and accessories. Pairing a silver bodysuit with a fringe body harness is a great way to do this. And of course, don't forget your cowgirl hat! Even better... make it a sequin light-up cowgirl hat!

2. All Silver Metallic Clothing

Did someone say metallic?! Here is just the silver costume you need to incorporate all that shininess into a space cowgirl costume. All you need to recreate this costume is a metallic bikini, a cowgirl hat, shoulder pads, and a pair of silver pants.

I actually spent at least 45 minutes trying to find the silver chaps these girls are wearing but once I finally did I found that they are currently sold out (and literally no other stores sell these… trust me I searched hard). But, I will still link them here in case they are restocked anytime soon! 

While you cant recreate this look exactly, you can still create something really similar with a pair of metallic pants like these from Amazon. They may be a little warmer anyways. The shoulder pads in the photos were actually a DIY but you can buy some similar off of Amazon and safety pin them to your clothing. Overall, this costume is one of the best ones I’ve seen so it is definitely one to take inspiration from!

You and your friends are guaranteed to have so much fun styling your outfits and taking pictures the day of the event!

While this set from Amazon maybe a little less “space” and a little more “cowgirl” it is one of the cutest costumes you can buy as a whole and would be super easy to turn into a space cowgirl costume.

The set comes with everything pictured except that hat so that is the only other thing you need to purchase separately. You could even pick out a metallic cowgirl hat to incorporate the “space” theme into this costume! To truly take this costume to the next level, add glitter to your hair and makeup and you’re done!

2. Metallic Bodysuit With Fringe Skirt

Does this costume set not just scream space cowgirl?! Literally the perfect bodysuit for this costume idea. To finish off the look all you need are cowgirl boots and a hat! Super easy but combines space and cowgirl perfectly.

There really aren’t too many costumes labeled “space cowgirl” since this costume idea only became super popular pretty recently and is usually made by just combining different styles of clothing. But, Party City does have this super stylish costume that nails the space cowgirl theme right on the head.

The set comes with a fringe belt and vest that is perfect to accessorize a plain white tank or other clothing you choose.
