DescriptionIrish McCalla Sheena: Queen of the Jungle Extensive Screen and Publicity Worn Costume Ensemble (Nassour Studios, 1955). Without question the most iconic and erotically-charged female comic-book character brought to the television screen, most surprisingly at the height of censorship and conservative family values. Blonde Amazon Irish McCalla,
at 6 ft. 1 in and sporting an exceptional classic figure for a woman of her stature, was the ideal personification of the golden age comic mythical jungle heroine.
From her own collection come (2) variations, 1-screen-worn and 1-for personal publicity appearances, of her faux-leopard tunic and loincloth complete with 1-belt, 1-scabbard, 1-horn, 2-armbands, 2-chokers and 1-leather moccasin. The screen-worn tunic retains original wardrobe labels, 1-silk yellow-label, "IRISH McCALLA," and 1-maker's bias label, "Designed by Lydia, Hollywood," and the briefs retain Western Costume Co. label with, "IRISH McCALLA/ 10-1373-1."
The publicity and appearance combination does not bear any labels, but is certified by McCalla's family to be her own
costume for that purpose. Easily the most significant and exciting costume offering to date for any female action character from the realm of comics, serials, and early television. COA from Heritage Auctions.
