Willy Wonka Oompa Loompa Costume

OOMPA LOOMPA COSTUME FROM WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY – (Paramount, 1971) Oompa Loompa costume worn by one of the little-people actors portraying the industrious and trustworthy factory workers of Willy Wonka. Costume consists of a rust-colored wool shirt with striped collar and cuffs, a pair of white polyester jodhpurs with large buttons attaching integral suspenders, a pair of brown leather slippers with attached pom-pom, each with handwritten notation reading “Clayton” (a possible reference to George Claydon who played one of the Oompa Loompas) and a green curly-haired wig with manufacturer’s label reading, “UNA Made in West Germany 100% Human Hair.” Originally obtained from Michael D. Beinner, Director of Field Advertising and Publicity for Paramount Pictures who was gifted the costume following its promotional tour of several key cities around the U.S. This is the only complete Oompa Loompa costume known to have survived and it remains as one of the most instantly recognizable costumes in film history. Estimate $8,000 – $12,000 Starting Bid $8,000
