    Edie Adams' Screen-Worn Costume. This glittering jumpsuit of gold sequins and fur arm cuffs, streaming with floor length cream chiffon scarves, perfectly fit Edie's role alluding to Narcissus in a skit on her 1963 TV show Here's Edie, where she sang to her reflection while stretched out on a polar bear skin rug. Originally seen worn on the cover of her 1963 album Music to Listen to Records By: Edie Adams Sings?, this costume is an example of Edie's tongue-in-cheek sense of humor (apparently Groucho Marx was the only one to "get" the satirical nature of the album), as well as her creative wardrobe recycling after Kovacs' death. The V-necked halter with a flesh color inset, scoops in back to the waist and is edged in rhinestones. With interesting interior detailing, such as the inner ribbon belt, the jumpsuit is secured in back, with a extra large zipper, typical of her quick-change costumes, as well as zippers at each leg. By Berman's, the jumpsuit and arm cuffs are in Very Fine condition. Accompanied by a hardcover copy of Edie Adams' autobiography, Sing a Pretty Song. From the Ernie Kovacs/Edie Adams Estate Archive.
