The first woman in space was Barbie® doll, of course! She was elegant even in the Final Frontier in her metallic silver fabric spacesuit. The suit zipped up the front and had an elastic thread loop and shank button at the neck. The brown plastic straps at the shoulders and across the bodice featured golden buckles. There were painted brown details on the suit at the waist, arm and leg. A two-part white plastic helmet with face cutout and clear plastic panel, brown plastic mittens, zip boots and sheer nylon American flag on a wooden stick completed the out-of-this-world look!
