Barf's (John Candy) costume from Mel Brooks' sci-fi comedy Spaceballs. A half-man, half-dog creature and the loyal sidekick of Lone Starr (Bill Pullman), Barf accompanied his friend and master to a spaceport diner while gassing up their space Winnebego.
This costume consists of a beige cotton jumpsuit with a zip-up front and metal clasps with Velcro elements throughout. It features a "Barf" name tag patch as well as a goldtone metal dog pin on the breast pocket. Also included in this lot is a beige T-shirt, a pair of fur-covered gloves and socks, a fur-covered armband with Velcro attachments, a pair of black sneakers with removed toe caps and tongues, and a fur-covered tail with a metal element at the base which attaches to the jumpsuit with a Velcro opening at the small of the back. This costume is in good overall condition with some wear from production, staining throughout the jumpsuit, and missing fur sections on the gloves and socks.
