Marty McFly anti-radiation suit

In the movie Back to the Future, Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) gives Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) a yellow jumpsuit to protect him against radiation when loading plutonium in the DeLorean. When he arrived in 1955 in this strange costume, he scares the Peabody family. The similarity of his costume with that of an alien on the cover of a Comics entitled "Tales From Space" is notice by the youngest of the family.

In one memorable scene where Marty has to impress his father, he is using this outfit again. He then passed to a guy named "Darth Vader" armed with a hairdryer and a Walkman. It is interesting to see how an outfit rather conventional in our time, is 30 years before becoming something of a futuristic or even view as supernatural.

The costumes of the film were designed by Deborah Lynn Scott who had previously worked for Steven Spielberg on the films E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial and The Twilight Zone The Movie. More recently she has worked as Costume Designer on Transformers and James Cameron's Avatar. The Archive yellow jumpsuit is complete with the infamous hair dryer, a belt, and a silver model of the AIWA HSP-02 Walkman. Note that the yellow outfit is actually a paper jumpsuit used by painters.
