Our expert's notes
A Marshall William T. O'Neil forced perspective spacesuit from Peter Hyams' sci-fi film Outland.
O'Neil (Sean Connery) wore his spacesuit in the climactic scenes of the film, in which he ambushed the hitmen sent to kill him and drug-ring leader Mark Sheppard (Peter Boyle).
This smaller version of Marshall's spacesuit was designed for a child actor to wear for forced perspective shots. Created by Oscar®-winning costume designer John Mollo, the intentionally distressed suit is constructed from white cotton and decorated with quilted sections, a "Con-Am 27" patch and a "League of Industrial Nations" patch. Strips of webbing edged with blue piping adorn the sleeves and legs, and four detailed resin components are attached to the front.
The spacesuit is presented on a custom-made display, complete with an unpainted cast-foam helmet situated on the metal rim around the neckline. Several stains are present on the garment and the lot exhibits loose threads, with the outer edges of the patches beginning to fray.
Materials: Man-Made Woven Fibres, Plastic, Ferrous Metals, Foam.
