The Gyro Captain


  • Flight Helmet: Unidentified leather flight helmet (so far very difficult to identify). It has leather-covered ear caps with 3 grommets in each cap.
  • Goggles: British Royal Air Force Mark IVB with flip sun shield. Fairly rare, and probably quite expensive these days. May be worth your time to create a replica out of the more common British-style aviator goggles (the type used by Toecutter).

Jacket: Long brown leather coat. Raglan sleeves, double-breasted, with removable belt. Comes down above the knees. No epaulets. On his left chest, he wears a yellow fabric flower brooch.

Scarf: Long, narrow, knit, lavender scarf. Appears to be cotton.

Clothing: Heavily stained yellow long johns, with a button-up neck. I am assuming they are a one-piece, but there’s no way to know for sure. A one-piece is also known as a union suit. Either way, I haven’t found a source for anything similar.

Shoes: Pink “Chuck Taylor” Converse All-Stars lo-tops.
