Jaeger Pilot from Pacific Rim

The Jaeger pilots of Pacific Rim (pictured here played by Charlie Hunan and Diego Klattenhoff) work together to pilot giant mech suits in the battle against invading extraterrestrial Kaiju. Each Jaeger requires two pilots that are Drift Compatible, allowing them to merge their thoughts and control the giant machines. The pilots in the movie are best known for the panel armor suits they wear while in the Jaegers, but when they’re not in their rigs, they have a more mobile look. A standard flight jump suit and white t-shirt under a bomber jacket bearing the right patches is all you need to blend in with these brave men and women in the battle against the Kaiju!

Jake Pentecost from Pacific Rim Uprising

Jake Pentecost (played by John Boyega) is the son of Stacker Pentecost, arguably one of the most famous Jaeger pilots in the history of the program. And that’s a big legacy to live up to. It makes Jake reckless. And though that’s what got him kicked out of the Pan Pacific Defense League to start with, it’s also what might help him save the day in the end.

Like his father, Jake prefers to wear a neatly trimmed mustache. You can either try the fake one listed above or follow this tutorial to draw one in if growing one is not an option.

Jake also follows the uniform expected of a PPDL ranger, though he is a little more casual with it: A tan uniform shirt with the PPDL patch, a name tag, and a pilot’s pin. A white undershirt, black pants, and black combat boots. It’s a straightforward look expected of rangers in the resurrected PPDL and one Pentecost wears well as he forges a legacy all his own!

Mako Mori

In Pacific Rim, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi) is an officer of the Pan Pacific Defense Corps and Raleigh Becket’s badass co-pilot. She lost her family in a Kaiju attack when she was a little girl, so she has a score to settle.
