GIANT'S ORIGINAL YOUNG-LUND COSTUME DRAWINGS
An incredible original costume design from the landmark of Irwin
Allen's science-fiction television series of the 1960's entitled
"Land of the Giants". This is of actress Heather Young. It is
comprised of a mimeographed outline of Heather Young's body, with
the costume drawn on in color by hand. There is also a swatch of
material stapled on the side of the design of the material used to
make her costume! There are also pencilled in measurements and other
writing. The second drawing is of the beautiful Deanna Lund.
Comprised of a mimeographed image of Deanna Lund's body, with the
costume drawn in pencil. This was a very early draft of her costume
and therefore is extremely rare. These items came from a personal
collection of Scifihollywood, where the previous owner obtained them
from. These original drawings were designed and drawn by Paul
Zastupnevich. Who designed many clothes for Irwin Allen's
shows/films over the years. I purchase these from Fuller French on
11/30/00 of Los Angeles, California.
An extremely rare, original costume design art sketchs for
Irwin Allen's production of, LAND OF THE GIANTS! this rare
art is a preliminary sketch for the character of VALERIE
AMES SCOTT, played by DEANNA LUND. she was the socialite
heiress passenger aboard the SPINDRIFT!
This art would be done as a preliminary, where art director
and costume designer extrodinare, PAUL ZASTUPNEVICH would work
over a light studio stat or xerox and add different
interperative design sketches. here, he seemes to be working
out her final costume. the medium is pencil and stat. One art
drawing is signed in pencil by PAUL Z and may also be signed by
DEANNA LUND who adds, LAND OF THE GIANTS! at the top in pencil.
It seems to be her signature, but i cannot be certain. The art
measures roughly, 8 1/2" X 10 1/2". There is some creasing and
very light aging, but over all the pieces are in great shape.
Original production artwok from the 1960's Irwin Allen
television production is EXTREMELY RARE.
