A Blue Ranger (David Yost) costume from Bryan Spicer's big screen adaptation of the hit children's television series Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie. The Blue Ranger wore his costume when he joined with his fellow Power Rangers to protect Earth from Ivan Ooze (Paul Freeman).
This costume consists of a blue spandex blend zip-up jumpsuit accented with a layer of latex paint and affixed with blue urethane rubber armor pieces on the chest, back, thighs, and shoulders; blue leatherette accents on the forearms, chest, and knees; and a pair of white leather boots with blue diamond-patterned leatherette details.
The ensemble's nicest component is the blue, gold, and silver-colored fiberglass helmet marked "HERO" which has a dark tinted visor and a padded interior. The front and back plates of the helmet are connected by elastic and close with fabric and velcro straps on the interior. The helmets were designed for the film with removable mouthpieces, and the original piece is missing on this helmet, so a mesh screen was installed behind the mouth after production for display. The costume's gold-color chest emblem was also missing, so a replica cast from original molds has been fitted for display. The gloves and belt for the costume are not present.
The costume is in fair and highly fragile overall condition with aging throughout, including deterioration and some separation of the urethane rubber armor components (some recently reattached), and flaking to remaining armor and bodysuit finishes. Additional stabilization efforts may be beneficial for long-term preservation. The helmet is in fair condition with some wear from production and age. The costume has been mounted on a flexible-body mannequin for several years.
Estimate: $12,000 - 16,000
