I thought it might be useful to start a thread on the Afterlife variants of the uniforms. Although they are obviously based on the GB1 originals, there do seem to be some differences which are worth noting so we have a document of the new screen-accurate.

Starting with these behind the scenes photos of the OGs that were shared on Twitter this week:

Some things I noticed:

* The leg hoses in these photos appears to be clear rather than yellow. There seems to be a spare hose on the table next to Ernie which also appears to be clear. The connector looks similar on the OGs, although in the photo Mike shared of Phoebe/Egon's uniform at the Hollywood Museum, it does look to have a slightly different shape.

* I know there has always been a debate about the colour of the original pistol belts, but they certainly look grey here (possibly dyed from white) and appear to match the colour of the elbow pads.

* The no-ghost patch is not an idealised version and maintains the wonky look of the originals. Would be interesting to know if each one is slightly different, or if they settled on one style.

* Belt Gizmos - it's hard to see them here, but from seeing them briefly in the movie they really resembled Spongeface's replicas to me. I have spent way too much time studying every boring detail of the gizmo props for my own kits, and from the brief flashes I saw in the movie, they looked pretty solid and not thrown together like the old stunt boards. I could be wrong of course, but I have heard the production used some BenOfKent props as background pieces in the farmhouse, so it's not out of the question that they used some of Doug's kits too. Maybe just a theory, but that really would be unbelievable to see a fan-produced prop worn by Bill, Dan and Ernie in the actual movie! I know Adam Savage built one during lockdown and we know how close he has been to this production. Maybe Doug can clear this up?

Anything else anyone has noticed so far?

Same when phoebe wore it during the switch me on scene. Maybe just flipped by mistake? I know I’ve done that with my own frame before

When I first saw the strap flipped on Phoebe, I wondered if it was just a mistake too. But seeing them flipped on Winston and Ray in the photos above, it looks pretty deliberate. I just can't imagine why they would do that. We can't see Peter's left strap in the pic above, but I assume it's flipped as well.

I'm curious as to what fabric they used for the jumpsuits this time around. There's that very noticeable horizontal pattern in the fabric in Winston's and Phoebe's suits. It's not noticeable in Peter's or Ray's in the pics above, but that's probably due to lower picture quality.

I’m bummed they used a gray web belt. Definitely khaki in the originals.

In Phoebe’s scene you can tell they’re just flipped on accident. In a movie if you do something by mistake once, you have to do it for every shot.

Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 would beg to differ

- Straps are flipped in the movie, too and it bugs me
Mckenna just twited a snip BTS video where you can see the strap correctly placed, so it is very possible that its was just not on purpose.

Lol Winston's elbow pads are on his wrists.

Aren’t they the same as the original? Or is it darker this time

Well it’s definitely a darker gray but they used a light wheat / tan / khaki in the original.

Is the rip stop pattern really prominent on these new suits compared to the originals or are my eyes playing tricks on me? I know in the trailers we saw Phoebe opening the locker with the suits and we could see the rip stop indicating we were seeing GB1 suits but in the BTS shots (especially Hudson’s) it seems much louder than before. I noticed this on Adam Savages uniform as well when he posted the video of him all dressed up for a con and thought wow that rip stop is very apparent. That and the breast pockets appear to be lower as no ones name tag overlaps them like on the originals.

No not just you I definitely noticed it. I was really obsessed with flight suits last night so I noticed it. I basically can’t see the ripstop on the originals even in the Blu-ray. Had to see the auction photos.

Elbow pads.

So what do people think? Custom made, Gbfans, or reworked Cannons? Or something else. Is the dark patch painted on, or an applicade fabric. Covering a hole? The edging of the pad appears to be the same light grey as the rest. And the ends of the tube appear to be be turned under. But not sewn down. Or serged, like the factory edge.

Inquiring minds want to know.

My guess is that the film used pads are reworked Cannons. The logo is easily scraped away with a sharp blade. The ends are turned under with hidden stiches. And dark grey fabric used to cover the hole.

Here's a slightly closer view of Phoebe's suit I took at the Hollywood Museum last week... The ripstop is very pronounced, but I think it may have had to do with the weathering. It also seemed to be a considerably darker and yellower material than the suits looked in GB1.

I have the ones that have the holes. Is there a good way to cover these while still looking seamless?

Are these by Indy Magnoli or studio made?

I'm happy with the GBfans ones. I just don't know of anywhere to get 100% screen accurate GB1 pads.

I would assume they are studio made custom suits. Magnoli didn't announce his replicas until February 2020 and have a different rip-stop material closer to GB1.
