It's known that in her daily life Gadget prefers practical
overalls, sometimes called a Jump Suit.
The collar of these overalls is always up, a very attractive detail
in my opinion. Under the overalls we almost always see a white T-shirt.
I think it's a T-shirt, not a vest. Though who knows... The suit is
bound with a wide, dark belt at the waist. (The waist, by the way, is
very thin. :)
And there's a detail in addition to the everyday overalls: machine,
or aviation goggles. They are used for both dust and wind protection,
and for welding. It has been suggested that the goggles were a gift from
her father, and she wears them as a talisman. I don't know. Most likely,
they are just a practical and necessary thing, a detail.
While watching the series, we see a few examples of headwear. Among
them there are fur earlaps (obviously of artificial fur. Not a very good
thing, I tried, a good wind gust, and you're done.), or just a flower,
or a tropical cork helmet, or a miner's or even a military helmet. (The
latter objects look as if they were made especially for mice. It's
either a result of mouse-industry, or a present.) There were moments
when her head was quite uncovered... (by the way, my favorites)
Like this... The change of the overalls' color, from aqua, to
light-blue, blue violet, and lavender, gives credence to the likelihood
that she has at least four sets. And considering the fact that her work,
or hobby, if you prefer; comes with a great probability of getting
dirty, (on screen, we always see her clean), one can reasonably assume
she has at least three suits of every color. Thus, we have 12 suits as a
minimum. The other extreme is that she regually gets new ones as she
That only covers the overalls.
Well, besides overalls, she has two sets of winter clothes -
resembling something between a furcoat and a topcoat - of two different
colors, plus mittens.
By the way, she wears the same overalls under the furcoat. (I
wonder if it consists of one or two parts. I think it's only one. If
true, then it's not that easy to put it on, and that would be funny to
look at from the outside.)
I'm a bit surprised at the absence of pockets that are common for
work overalls. The same with fasteners. If the suit consists of one
part, she would have to put it on through the collar, and that's quite
inconvenient. Then she would have difficulties in putting her pelvis
through the narrow part in the waist. In this case fasteners or cuts
would be necessary. The cuts or fasteners would be covered with a belt.
Maybe the suit consists of two parts - a jacket and trousers, and the
joint is either closed or coincides with the belt line. Anyway I think
it's one piece, and the necessary zipper, (in front, as it's not an
evening dress that would be hard put on without external help), is just
ignored, together with many other small details.
Then we have a red evening dress, a-la "femme fatale", that really
makes my fingers shiver. By the way, this is the only time when Gadget
uses make-up. Some people think that it doesn't suit her, but I probably
will allow myself to disagree.
There's also a rare chance to observe a new hairstyle. A very nice
one, isn't it? The fringe seems longer.
Hmm... The latest data says it's a wig.
This suggests that there is some heavy armament in Gadget's
feminine arsenal! Devilishly funny, isn't it? Well, she hasn't borrowed
it all, has she? This begs more questions. First, what is the reason for
using a wig that looks very like her own hair? Second, how does a wig
fit over Gadget's rich hair? I'm afraid she would have to cut her hair
to wear a wig.
There're also some adornments. Is she "mannish"? Is she "wishing to
be like a boy"? Pah! I don't remember who said it to me.
In this frame we see overalls of a color very unusual for Gadget.
It may be explained that the cola dyed them, as it is unlikely she could
have changed into a different pair! Maybe it's a chameleon type of suit
that changes color according to its owner's mood.
A typical cartoon invention.

The author supposes that the overalls became orange because of the
cola. This is usually thought to be the case. The same is thought about
the brown goggles in the passage on head-wear.
ooooooh, I'm crazy. ;)
Here is a solid supplement to the wardrobe. Besides, it lets us
know that Gadget's overalls are for working, and not neccessarily for
everyday clothes. The presence of many others clothes allow us to
conclude that Gadget isn't as conservative as she is often portrayed,
that she isn't indifferent to the others opinion of her appearance, and
has a certain femininity she is aware of, and cultivates. (If she has
worn make-up once, then she HAS cosmetics. Make your own conclusions.)
(Please excuse a technician for his crooked explanations, I hope you
understand what I mean...)
I'm writing this because there is an opinion that Gadget is quite
naive, and doesn't think about anything like this, doesn't pay attention
to anything, and often behaves.... shall we say.... unfeminine? That is,
that she often acts in ways one doesn't normally associate with female
Then, one more question to you.
What does it mean? Where is it from? What's going on? I haven't
seen it. It's a rare moment when Gadget wears shoes! And honestly, I
don't like it,

This screenshot is taken from episode #55 (Dirty Rotten Diapers).
These clothes cannot be classified as part of Gadget's wardrobe because
they are, at least from my understanding, borrowed from toys.
A few frames earlier, Gadget had a toy hairstyle besides toy
clothes. A funny hairstyle. And not only Gadget had it. Look! Do you
Then we also have a swimming suit. And it's quite obviously a
child's model. One more proof of who she was associated with by her
creators. And I sometimes give her age as 24, when answering questions
about the subject. :) Anyway what large pelvic bones she has... Oops.
Better pass on talking about her anatomy. Though from this point of
view, this picture (together with some others) is of certain interest.
One more interesting moment, here she wears not goggles, but some
sort of head band. What is it?
Comment by Mister B.
You write that a swimming suit with a skirt is a child's model.
That's not quite correct. Such swim suits are worn not just by children.
There was a period when such skirted swim suits were popular among girls
(almost the same suits as Gadget's). And in Europe, such models are not
rare even now. I have regulary been abroad since 1997, and saw girls
(about 20-30 years old) wearing similar swimsuits with my own eyes.
Then there's a training suit.
Plus a nightgown. Of two different colors. By the way she looks
remarkable - even better than in her red gown. Though that's a matter of
Maybe she keeps all these clothes, maybe she buys them, maybe she
stores them somewhere. But if she buys or stores them, where does she
keep them? The wardrobe seems really impressive.
That's all, seems like I haven't forgotten anything... If I have,
I'll write later.
