Friday Funday #FFD: High Orbit Couture

Update: High Orbit Couture achieved! This #FFD is now closed (we won't be altering the post anymore), so stay tuned for next Friday :)

Leading from one tangent to the next, we are going from cakes to couples to couture! This week's Friday Funday asks you to submit photos of space-influenced fashion. From space outfits in movies to rocket-packs on the runway, leave us a comment below or @glxp us on Twitter before 5pm PT and we'll add it here!
