This Russian military costume was worn by stunt performer Danny Downey in the 2008 action-adventure smash, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The costume is a genuine period Russian military uniform, and bears Russian military markings on the inside. Russian military uniforms are quite rare in their own right, but the production wanted them for the sake of authenticity. The uniforms sport nice touches such as custom made buttons. The jacket has no size marked, and the pants are marked size 34. The name “Downey” has been handwritten in black ink on the inside of the garments. Also included are the removable shoulder boards and lapel pins that complete the costume.
This costume was rented to the production in 2007 by a Hollywood costume rental house. Russian soldiers can be seen wearing these costumes throughout the picture.
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
