EXCLUSIVE: Cesar Romero was born 114 years ago…
UPDATED 2/15/21: Today is the late Cesar Romero’s birthday! (He was born Feb. 15, 1907). Perfect time to re-present this look at one of his original Joker costumes. Enjoy! — Dan
In case you’re just joining us, we’ve been showing off a series of original Batman ’66 costumes owned by an anonymous collector dubbed “Alfred.” It’s an amazing collection that includes all the main heroes and villains, as well as authentic and replica vehicles and assorted props.
So far, we’ve brought you UP-CLOSE LOOKS at Alfred’s Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Riddler and Catwoman costumes, as well as the original Penguin submarine prop from the 1966 movie. (Click here for much more on all that.)
Now, we’re up to the Joker.
Timing’s good on this one because Alfred has just added a Cesar Romero Joker mannequin to join the ones above:
The mannequin itself was created by Greg Maraio, Marc Spess, Daniele Tirinnanzi and David Costa — and we’ll have more on their work soon.
But the costume is an authentic outfit worn by Cesar Romero. At least mostly — the jacket, vest and pants are originals, but Maraio provided dead-on replicas of the shirt, tie, gloves and shoes to complete the look.
