|Specifics: We're going to have to give this page a lot more pictures covering aspects of the uniform. I don't want to see stolen pics from other sites.|
The Ghostbusters wore Uniforms (which was a CWU-27p Flight Suit) in both movies, though the color varied from light grey, to beige, to navy blue. The costume choice was meant to convey the look of a janitor or exterminator.
The uniforms have the No-Ghost logo, on the right upper arm, and a left breast name tag, displaying the wearer's last name. Elbow pads were also part of the uniform. Common accessories are insulated work gloves and standard-issue lace-up boots.
A hose often connects to the leg on the left side of the jumpsuit and by being tucked in under the belt. The exact purpose of this is unclear.
List of Items on or a part of the uniform:
- Belt Gizmo
- Motorola MT500 Radio
- Black Rubber Insulated Electrical Gloves
- Transparent Yellow/Clear Leg Hose
- Khaki WWII Pistol Belt
- Key Fobs
- Lifegard II (added in Ghostbusters II)
Ghostbusters: The Video Game
The Realistic versions have the classic tan color much like the first movie. Interestingly even the logo on the sleeve is now the normal no-ghost sign.
Online Rank Uniforms
Also the online version on the Xbox 360 and PS3 has ranks which change the colors of the uniform. The list is the following...
- Costume designer Gloria Gresham came up with the new flightsuits in Ghostbusters II upon Ivan Reitman's request for a new design.
- In the Quickbooks online spot "Happy Business: Ghostbusters," released on December 27, 2019, a deliveryman arrives with clean uniforms but gets slimed by Slimer. On Janine's QuickBooks dashboard, Dry Cleaning expenses are listed as $8,235.

Gloria Gresham says: "When Ivan first called, he was already saying to me that he would like to see a new design, a different ghostbusters costume. I did different shapes, different colors, different fabric. Then we'd go to dailies and we'd look at it on film, and Ivan would say 'No, that's not it.'"
