1950s children were either so gullible or so imaginative, they accepted a painted bucket as a Tom Corbett space helmet

This 1950s ad promises that “no one will be able to recognize you” when you where the specially made Tom Corbett, Space Cadet helmet. What that vow fails to account for is the “look it’s that idiot with his bucket helmet” factor. This makes Ed Norton and his Captain Video gear seem understated and dignified.

Then again, if you saved it for twenty years or so you could use it for Celestial cosplay. You be Jemiah the Analyzer! I’ll be Arishem the Judge! Of course, you’d be well into your thirties by then — not that that’s ever stopped anyone.
