The Lone Ranger

The Scots Magazine - - Focus On… Aberdeenshire -

“Every­body re­mem­bers dress­ing up as a child, be it as a doc­tor, astro­naut or uni­corn,” con­tin­ues Lyn. “So much of child­hood play is imag­i­nary, be­ing lost in worlds of fan­tasy or pre­tence. This of­fi­cial Lone Ranger out­fit is from the 1950s tele­vi­sion se­ries, a fic­tional masked hero who fought out­laws in the Amer­i­can Wild West. The out­fit comes with the trade­mark hat and mask, as well as a badge and gun. Cowboys were a par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar sub­ject for films, books and comics at this time. To­day, the ac­tion hero is more likely to be Won­der Woman or Cap­tain Amer­ica, but chil­dren still en­joy dress­ing up as their heroes and play­ing out their ad­ven­tures.”
