I've been scanning a lot of snapshots lately (since the supply of slides is waning). I'll share a couple of nice ones today!
Let's start with this black and white photo of a Tomorrowland Space Woman (or "Space Girl" I suppose). She's standing at the entrance to the Rocket to the Moon attraction. This iteration of the costume is relatively subdued - as far as I can tell from the soft focus, she only has a cape and silver boots to indicate her origins, no crazy helmet or other headgear. Her skirt is almost as short as Zapp Brannigan's tunic!
Here's Zapp Brannigan, for those poor souls who don't know:
This next one is undated, though I'm guessing that it's from the very late 1960's; the Carousel of Progress building narrows it down to fairly small window. Anyway, we've got a very good-looking space couple; I want them to be my moon neighbors. On hot days, the inside of those helmets could reach upwards of 400 degrees. The extraterrestrial couple is posting with an adorable little girl - I like her hat! Mr. Plaid Pants won't wait his turn, and photobombs the proceedings.
