Flight Suit Riot!
November 27, 2009 · Print This Article
Today I would like to address a question that has been bouncing around in my head ever since Battlestar the series began. The question is this: why do those frakkers look so cool all the time? In space! The answer: their flight suits of course! When our astronauts here in the good old USA put on their suits, they look like marshmallows with American flags on their shoulders. They are certainly puffier and less menacing than the sleek, shiny and physique-flattering BSG flight suits. These flight suits feature silver wrist cuffs, suede vests, and awesome patches and pins. Not to mention they are made from a material SO durable, it will protect you against the destructible elements of unknown atmospheres! (on the show people, not in real life. Do NOT try this at home.)
In the next auction we will be offering two Battlestar Galactica flight suits. This could be the week of auctions that you take home a flight suit of your very own! Take a closer look:
BSG Props Raptor Flight Suit, Size Small
Small Raptor flight suit. This costume was worn by background actors throughout the series. Production-made flight suit (size Small), including Senior Lieutenant rank pins, Standard Flight Wing pin, BSG patch on left shoulder, Raptor patch on right shoulder, silver wrist cuffs on the wrists and ankles, and a flight vest.
BSG Props Burned Raptor Flight Suit, Size Large
Small burned Raptor flight suit. Pilots wore flight suits to protect them from the extreme temperatures of outer space. This costume was worn by background actors throughout the series. Production-made flight suit (size large), that has been burned and extremely distressed. The suit features a Raptor patch on the right shoulder, silver cuffs on the wrists and ankles, burned flight vest and gloves.
Happy bidding, buddies!
