Any ideas for a 'Future and Space' themed costume? Answered

Go as Pluto and make a big deal of your Planet vs. Planetoid vs. Plutonic Body identity crisis. Make a sleek silvery "tail" and go as a comet. Go as a Mars Rover. Mix your super-fabiric with some military surplus and go as Major Tom (unless this David Bowie reference is to out of date?). Dress as one of the characters from "Firefly" (Inara, if you can pull it off :).
