The Secret Origin of Alan Scott's Crazy Get-Up

A red tunic and boots. Green pants. A purple cape and domino mask. A brown belt. And gold gladiator-style sandals...worn on top of his boots. Just what the hell was Alan Scott thinking when he designed his Green Lantern costume?

Ah, so bizarre that it will never be forgotten. Mission accomplished Alan Scott, mission accomplished.
