Dr. Catherine Deane's (Jennifer Lopez) mind-link costume from Tarsem Singh's sci-fi horror The Cell. Dr. Deane wore her suit in the research facility while being connected to a virtual reality device that allowed her to enter the mind of comatose serial killer Carl Stargher (Vincent D'Onofrio).
The full-body suit is made of foam rubber latex finished in red, with sculpted line patterning applied all over to resemble exposed muscle fibre. The costume consists of a torso section, a trouser-like section and a pair of matching boots. All of the pieces are adhered together via strips of Velcro®, creating a seamless finish.
Located on the left sleeve is a resin port-like component, where the suit connected to the virtual reality device. A red-coloured zip runs down the back of the costume, and the interior is labelled "A" in black ink. The costume is presented on a display mannequin and exhibits patches of minor damage to the foam latex. A separate additional port component and a fabric pair of boots labelled "Catherine" accompany the lot. The boots were to be worn around the set between shots as the costume's boots would often be slippery. Dimensions: 23 cm x 50 cm x 151 cm (9" x 19¾" x 59½")
