Your friends may be dressing up like ghosts and witches this Halloween, but you plan to take a more cosmic route. You're going to toss on some glittery leggings, a cowboy hat, and a shiny vest and pretend you're the coolest space cowgirl in the entire universe. Once you're all dressed up, you'll capture some new #content in front of streamers and likely need some Instagram captions for space cowgirl costume pics.

Don't feel like you need to jet-set all over the galaxy to find a caption so cute and clever. Everything you're looking for is right here, along with a few photo ideas to recreate in your not-so-spooky costume. First, you'll want to set up a backdrop, which can be made of sparkly streamers or a white sheet. From there, you'll want to pose with props that remind you of outer space. This could be a Buzz Lightyear action figure, a lamp that looks like the moon, a Baby Yoda stuffed animal, or even a shooting star that you made out of paper and attached to a popsicle stick. As the self-timer goes off on your camera, act as if you just discovered a new planet, or are the strong barrier between the evil in the galaxy and your adorable alien friends. Edit the #content you get with a hazy filter or one that adds glitter to your outfit. Then, post it on Instagram with a caption that's cosmic, cute, and clever. It’s as *stellar* as that.
