That's taking it too far.....

Something I've never really understood is why some people buy 'replica' helmets, do they think that passers by might mistake them for a famous bike racer?

Even more bizarre are motorcycle leathers made to look like someone from a film, especially when the character doesn't even ride a bike! Take a look at this website where you can buy leathers made to look like characters from Star Wars, Batman, etc.
One suit they used to do was based on the film 'Ironman'. I've not seen the film myself, but I assume the hero uses his superpowers to do people's ironing very quickly. Here's the charcter from the film:
