From the 1980 science fiction cult classic, starring Sam Jones in the lead role as Flash Gordon, comes this costume made for one of the inhabitants of 'Mongo'.
Such a style of Costume can be seen during the suitably lavish and extravagant Emperor Ming wedding ceremony sequence.
The bulky twin layered thick garment features heavily and intricately detailed sleeves. An original interior wardrobe identification sewn in label is still present which is a real rarity in itself amongst known surviving costumes from the movie. Exhibits signs of age wear but remain in very good condition and presents nicely.
Flash Gordon pieces become increasingly difficult to source and wardrobe such as this from the film seldom surfaces on the collectors market.
