EXCLUSIVE: The late, great YVONNE CRAIG was born 84 years ago!
UPDATED 5/16/21: The late Yvonne Craig was born May 16, 1937 — 84 years ago. This was first published in September 2018 during our series on the so-called Alfred Collection. Perfect time to re-present it. PLUS: Click here for 13 QUICK THOUGHTS: The Greatness of Yvonne Craig. — Dan)
Y’know, we never did find out whose baby Batgirl was. But we do know who owns one of her original costumes: an anonymous collector dubbed “Alfred,” whose incredible Batman ’66 collection of authentic outfits and props we’ve been showing off here at 13th Dimension the last couple of months.
So far, we’ve brought you UP-CLOSE LOOKS at Alfred’s Robin, Riddler and Catwoman costumes, as well as the original Penguin submarine prop from the 1966 movie. All while Alfred considers turning this into a traveling roadshow. (Click here for much more on all that. Believe me, you want to.)
Now it’s time to turn our attention to the Yvonne Craig’s Dominoed Daredoll.
The outfit is 100 percent screen-worn: Everything but the belt is from the TV show, while the belt itself is from the famed ’70s television public-service announcement promoting equal pay for women.
Just dig these pix. Oh, and the mannequin was produced by artist Greg Maraio:

This is the first time I’ve wondered what one of these costumes smells like. I’m imagining lavender chamomile.

Question – is the red hairpiece also screen worn, or is it a replacement?
