FLASH GORDON (1980)
Propmasters are proud to offer this incredible Ming Royal Guard Costume from the cult science fiction movie, starring Sam Jones in the title role.
Clearly seen throughout the majority of the film, the Royal Guards are highly memorable and significantly featured characters.
Beautifully designed, the Royal Guards had a visual Samurai like influence in appearance and were one of the highly noted costume designers, Danilo Donati, leading triumphs of exemplarily costume design.
The multifaceted costume comprises of a quilted affect red jacket and trousers with faux fur affect detailing. Both of which feature internal fixed foam padding to give the appearance of bulk/muscle when worn by the actor. A Helmet, front and back chest armour, pair of large winged shoulder armours, pair of two piece enclosing cuff/forearm armour sections, four leg armour plates and a pair of two piece enclosing shin/leg armour sections. The helmet and all armour sections are constructed of fibre glass.
The helmet exhibits some damage with some loss of detail, the small leather strapping on some armour sections has deteriorated due to age or are no-longer present, all armour sections exhibit typical age/production wear and the lower leg armour sections have lost all their colour coating.
Undoubtedly one of the most significant pieces of Flash Gordon movie history ever to become available and of a museum worthy importance.
Production items are accompanied by the Propmasters Certificate Of Authenticity.
