Maya's (Catherine Schell) transformation creature costume from the sci-fi television series Space: 1999. Maya was a shape-shifting Psychon alien who transformed into various creatures during the second season. This costume was reused in many episodes, with parts of it being repainted, and different latex appliances added to the head to achieve the multiple characters. This costume was then displayed in Blackpool in a Space City exhibition once filming had completed.

Made of foam and rubber, the creature costume is painted mainly green and consists of a head featuring eye holes; a separate torso piece with affixed arms; a long tail; and a pair of legs with webbed feet. The back features an exposed zip and is decorated with various fins and strands of black faux hair, while Velcro® strips are present around the neck.

The costume comes mounted on the exhibition's original wooden stand and shows signs of flaking and cracking to the paint finish. There is a split present on the inside of one hand and also on the back of the right foot. Dimensions: 55 cm x 74 cm x 166 cm (21½" x 29¼" x 65¼")

Special shipping required; see special shipping notice in the Buyer's Guide.
