Hellboy II: The Golden Army

Lot # 191 - Live Auction 2017 - Butcher Guard Costume

Stock #30557

A Butcher Guard's costume from Guillermo del Toro's fantasy action-adventure Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Butcher Guards surrounded King Balor's (Roy Dotrice) throne as Prince Nuada (Luke Goss) confronted his father over the missing part of the crown used to control The Golden Army.

The costume comprises a mask, a rubber neck brace, gauntlets, torso armour, a pair of leather trousers and skirt, and a pair of boots. Made of fibreglass, the mask is decorated to appear as though it is made of wood, with mesh sections in between to allow the wearer to see. A hairpiece hangs from the back of the mask, with dreadlocks down the front; these are wrapped in leather straps and have faux-bone decorations entangled between them.

The gauntlets are made of leather with faux-wooden armour plates; the armour on the fingers is made of rubber, attached with leather straps and metal fastenings. A rubber panel hangs from the bottom of the torso amour, to which a curtain of faux-hair, with faux-bones hanging from it, is secured by leather string. The shoes are made of leather, with foam and resin detailing.

The costume is completed by a sheathed sword, which hangs from the torso armour. The sword is made of resin and rubber, and features a faux-bone handle. A large 'executioner's' sword is also held by the guard, and is made of fibreglass and resin.

Distressed by the production to appear worn, the costume remains in very good condition, with some separation of fibreglass on the sword. The costume is displayed on a custom-made mannequin. Dimensions: 63 cm x 83 cm x 204 cm (24 3/4" x 32 3/4" x 80 3/4")
