HALLOWEEN FUN WITH THE MERCURY MEN

Time to dress up like our childhood heroes and eat Reese peanut butter pumpkins until our teeth dissolve.  We thought we'd celebrate Halloween...Mercury Men style!  Here's a few ways you can join in.

WEAR A MERCURY MEN MASK

Previously released as part of the fictional Mercury Marshamallows cereal, we've made our print out masks even easier.  Simply download the PDF, print, cut, and attach a string or elastic band to transform your kid (or yourself) into a Mercury Engineer, Jack Yaeger, or Edward Borman.

DR. TOMORROW PUMPKIN PATTERN

Now you can have the commander of the League watch over your bowl of candy with the Dr. Tomorrow pumpkin pattern!  Simply print out the PDF pattern, tape it to a pumpkin, trace the lines with a tool or nail, and carve out the pattern.

JACK YAEGER COSTUME

We get asked about Jack's costume...alot.  So here's a guide to help you find the pieces you need to become the daring hero himself!

(NOTE: Any links provided are only for your reference, and are not necessarily where we purchased the item.  Mercury Men Pictures does not endorse any retailer.  Please shop around for the best prices and research trustworthy online retailers.)

LEATHER JACKET - Brown Buffalo Leather Motorcycle Jacket
This jacket can be found on several retailers websites, including: eBay, Biker's Den

BELT POUCHES - WWII Mauser Ammo Pouches
These can be found pretty easily on eBay.

AVIATOR HELMET - Naval Aviator Helmet w/ Ear Cups
The site where Jack's helmet was originally purchased (Garcia Aviation) is out of stock, so you're best bet is searching eBay. A real WWII aviator helmet costs over $100, but you should be able to find a costume version for much cheaper.

GOGGLES - British Chrome VIII Flying Goggles
You can find these on eBay or at Garcia Aviation

PANTS - Khaki Pants
The easiest part of the costume to find :)

BOOTS - Black Costume Boots
The boots are officially called "Funtasma Captain 100" and a basic Google search turned up several retailers, including ShowBuy.com.  Any tall black costume boots will work though.

BELT/HOLSTER - Custom Made
Jack's brown leather belt and holster were custom made by our costume designer, so unfortunately we can't provide you any links to purchase one.  If you'd like to buy or make a SIMILAR belt/holster, you can always do a Google search for Han Solo's :)

Happy costume making!  And make sure to send us YOUR Jack Yaeger costume photos and we'll share them here on the blog!

What about the revolver? Is there any thing I can do to mine to make it look like Jack's gun?

Honestly, the mercury man mask made me laugh a bit. Combined with equally shiny clothing, that would make for a cute little costume. On the other hand, that pumpkin carving is very impressive. It just gave me an idea for this coming Halloween.
