It's time for yet another batch of vintage Disneyland Wardrobe Department photos (courtesy, as always, of Huck)!
You just don't see enough people wearing jumpsuits anymore. But in 1960's and '70's Tomorrowland, they were just the thing. Here's Sandy in her canary-yellow and ultramarine-blue "Peoplemover" ensemble (circa 1970). The Peoplemover was not a fast ride, but Sandy's costume was designed to reduce friction at supersonic speeds! White go-go boots are the perfect accessory.
This guy is not happy. Not. Happy. Maybe because his outfit (dated June 1969) includes a jacket for the Summer? I remember looking through old LIFE magazines at a used book store, and one article - possibly from 1969 - had "Fashions of the Future" (or something)... some of them looked very much like this (only the artwork typically showed the person wearing wrap-around mirrored shades).
There's my favorite girl again, looking adorable in her groovy Tomorrowland Jets costume (circa April 1966). Her hairdo mimics the vapor vortices created as a space plane touches down on terra firma!
