“Turn! To the right! Oh! Okay, we’re in the cerebral artery. It’s taking us to the brain. We’re just above the brain, in the spinal fluid… We’re gonna have to cross the blood-brain barrier. Can you get us inside?…The cerebral cortex! We’re inside the brain!”
I had a dream the other night I was on Body Wars at the Wonders of Life pavilion at EPCOT Center, so I guess it was a sign that I should post this now. Here’s a Body Wars cast member costume. This gray quasi-futuristic medical tunic and trousers set is a classic example of the style of futurism found throughout EPCOT Center’s uniforms. It features a cranberry-red asymmetrical stripe that wraps over to the right of the uniform, and simple silver buttons along the stripe that latch it down. There is also a nice, detailed MET (Miniaturized Exploration Technologies) patch just under where the cast member’s name tag would be. The trousers are very basic; it is a slightly darker shade of gray and features double pleats (yeah, not my style either.) I believe there was also a long lab coat which was optional for cast members. A nice thing about this costume is that the actors in the attraction’s preshow videos wore similar costumes – that asymmetrical stripe is consistent throughout all “MET” employees’ uniforms, which is another one of those small details that helps bring the guest directly into the story.
