| This wrestler’s costume was worn by the character "Laverne DeFazio," portrayed by actress Penny Marshall, in the classic television show, “Laverne and Shirley.” The costume consists of a red unitard with purple tulle trim at the hips and armholes, and has Laverne’s signature “L” sewn onto the breast.
Ms. Marshall wore the costume in the episode, “Tag Team Wrestling” (Season 3, Episode 2). In the episode, Laverne and her best friend “Shirley Feeney” (Cindy Williams) face off against two professional female wrestlers in the ring with hilarious results.
“Laverne and Shirley,” which ran from 1976-1983, was nominated for six Golden Globes over the course of its seven-year run, and costume designer Al Lehman received an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Costume Design For a Series in 1979.
The costume is in good vintage screen worn condition and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the costume house. Presented by The Golden Closet, your premier source for iconic screen used wardrobe, props, and music entertainment memorabilia.
