Paul Feig posted to Twitter the new costuming for the Ghostbusters reboot, and it’s surprisingly not revamped too much for the ladies!

There’s a comparison between the new and old uniforms and proton packs. What is great is that they are staying true to the original. The jumpsuits are pretty much the same, with the exception of orange bands, which we don’t know yet if or what they represent. I also like how they are baggy and comfortable looking, not skin baring, curve hugging and unrealistic like some might expect from an all girls reboot. The proton packs also seem to be a little smaller in size as well, but with age and technology, things do get smaller and more advanced with time.
I would also like to point out, maybe like an Easter Egg of sorts, they’re keeping the franchise within the Saturday Night Live Family, as half of the original cast and three people from the new cast got their starts on SNL.
Ghostbusters will be making its reboot debut on July 22, 2016, and will star Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon
