Tripods, The (1984-1985)

Eloise's (Charlotte Long) Stunt Costume

Stock #117771

"About a hundred years ago - not long - when the Tripods first appeared, they destroyed whole cities. Millions of people were killed or starved. And those that were left, the Tripods capped."

Eloise's (Charlotte Long) stunt costume from the classic BBC sci-fi drama based on John Christopher’s book series, The Tripods (1984 – 1985).

The Earth has been conquered by an alien race known as the Masters, who patrol the land in giant Tripods. When humans reach the age of 16 they are ‘capped’, placing their minds under the control of the aliens. A group of young friends avoid being capped themselves, and go in search of a group of ‘free men’.

Eloise wore her costume when her and Will (John Shackley) go horse riding and then boating, which ends with Eloise falling in the water and Will having to save her.

The costume consists of a blouse, waistcoat, long suede skirt and hat. The waistcoat has a handwritten label reading 'C. Long Stunt', while the blouse and skirt both have 'Charlotte Long' handwritten. The costume has some wear from production use, including some staining, and the suede skirt has become stiff over time. Overall it remains in a good condition.

Materials: Man-Made Woven Fibres, Plastic, Ferrous Metals. Please be aware that the costume you receive may appear different to the one shown in the photos.
