The long-sleeve t-shirts have been inspired by the crew uniforms from the live action classic, Space: 1999.
Anderson Entertainment has revealed the arrival of a range of cosplay long-sleeve t-shirts inspired by the crew uniforms from the live action classic, Space: 1999.
The shirts are replicas of the the uniforms worn by the crew on Moonbase Alpha. All are designed to closely match the original outfits worn by the show’s cast.
As in the show, the colours on the sleeves refer to the different ranks and characters in year one of the iconic 1970s Gerry Anderson series, beginning with black for John Koenig, leader of Moonbase Alpha, and orange for Alan Carter, chief pilot. These will be followed by red (Main Mission/Command Centre) and purple (security staff).
The shirts will initially be sold exclusively through the Gerry Anderson store website.
The move into the cosplay category comes on the heels of a new agreement with rightsholder ITV Studios, which allows Anderson Entertainment to expand its ranges of product derived from its classic brands.
The online Gerry Anderson store – which has an existing range includeing toys, apparel, model kits, gifts, calendars and homeware – is expanding its category offering significantly this year to meet demand. A major move into publishing, focusing on hardbacks, coffee table books, comic anthologies, series guides, audiobooks and more, is already under way.
“Gerry Anderson fans have been asking whether the stylish Space: 1999 look will be made available to wear for a long time,” commented Jamie Anderson, md of Anderson Entertainment. “Well, the first-ever t-shirts in the classic style of the hit show’s uniforms are now on sale, with more designs on the way. We’re delighted with these designs – and we think the massive Gerry Anderson fanbase will be too.”
