Adam West-era Batgirl costume worn by Yvonne Craig up for auction

Own a piece of comic history as the memorable costume worn by actress Yvonne Craig in the 1960s Batman television series is being put up for auction. With bids starting at $2,000, it’s a  perfect gift for any serious Batman collector or cosplayer with money to spare. The suit includes the unitard, utility belt, gloves, boots and cape.

The costume has a unique story; it was only worn once on television in Batgirl’s first appearance. Craig complained about how the points in the mask cut into her cheeks, so the studio ordered another with rounded cheeks for later episodes.

Created by the prolific Hollywood costume factory Western Costume, this auction includes paperwork and authentication from both them and Yvonne Craig herself.
