Exclamation Space Cosplay Needed...Please Help!

I'm part of a cosplay group, and we have a con coming up at the end of the summer. We have decided to go with a "space" theme, (stars wars, firefly etc.) I have a gender bender Jayne Cobb for one day, but I'm really struggling for the second day. If anyone has any ideas they are super appreciated. I really need to get going on this soon, since we have our photo shoot before the con, and I'm a horrid perfectionist when it comes to my costumes.

When I think if space themed costumes, beyond Star Wars and Firefly like you mentioned, I think of Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop. Both are set almost entirely in space, so you could maybe find someone from one of those to cosplay.

There is a new anime out called Uchuu Kyoudai a.k.a. Space Brothers. The costume of the main character isn't really too unique, but his younger brother wears an astronaut outfit, so it fits your space theme. It's relatively new, though.

-Edit- If you're okay with crossplay that is.. xD

Mehdia's suggestions are great too!

Thanks both of you!!!
I'm totally cool with crossplay...but since I'm already doing one for Saturday I figure I should at least make an attempt to consider playing it straight for Sunday. I've looked into Cowboy Bebop, but one girl is already doing Faye, but then again there's always other characters, plus it would be cool if we coordinated days. I hadn't even thought about Outlaw Star. I was leaning (very) slightly toward Yoko from Teggen Toppa Gurren Laggen (ugh...I will never spell that right) and I have a couple friends wanting me to...but I'm hesitant with winter weight...but I have until August on a lighter note right

I have never seen these two series in my life but I know they deal with outer space:
- Legend of the Galactic Heroes
- Planetes

You could also look into the Gundam series, although I've only ever seen Gundam Wing and part of Gundam Seed o_O;

I'm in the same boat Aeternus. I have a friend who LOVES the Gundam series...I've only ever seen bits and pieces...not for lack of interest...just lack of downtime. I haven't seen either of those shows either...but I'll look into them thank you!

How could I have forgotten Gundam?! Wing was my absolute favorite Gundam series and has a lot of great characters to cosplay (mostly guys though since you said you were looking to cosplay a female probably).

Aeryn Sun, Farscape

Here is a pic:

Farscape was an excellent sci-fi show set in space.

Thanks!!! That's an easy one I can whip up in a short time too, if I don't find anything else to do.
