About the Costume

This black and golden dress was first worn by Sunnyi Melles as Königsmutter (The King’s Mother) in Die kluge Bauerntochter (The Peasant’s Wise Daughter), the eighth movie of the second season of fairytale anthology series Sechs auf einen Streich (Finest Fairy Tales).

It was worn again by Ulrike Krumbiegel as the king’s sister Edeltraud in Die goldene Gans (The Golden Goose), the tenth movie in the Märchenperlen series.

The dress might originate even earlier from an East German movie or series produced by DEFA since it shown as an example in an article on costumes by a DEFA fan website. However, it has not been found yet and the website doesn’t name sources, so whether this claim is true remains uncertain.

The picture’s file name hints to it being owned by costume house Theaterkunst at one time but while the other costume in the picture can still be found in their online showroom, this dress is not cataloged there. The costume house says that the website is only an excerpt of their work and so it remains unclear whether the dress is still among their stock.

Costume Commentary

  1. Ok, this is a big coincidence, but I may have found it in a French tv show from 1979: “Le roi qui vient du sud”, about Henry IV. A show I discovered like three days after this post! It doesn’t seem to be a co-german production but the last three episodes were directed by a German director and there are some German actors in it (I actually only found the show in German which will make it a lot harder to understand ^^’ ). Not sure when I’ll have time to make the captures and send the submission, but that’s already some info on the quest about this costume!
    That said, I’ve spotted some other re-use in the show (from Elizabeth R or Crossed Swords for example), and this black dress is in a very short scene, which could mean it came from an even earlier production.

  2. I really hope we can one day figure out whether the claim on the DEFA Filmfreund website is true and if so, which movie or series it originated in. I’m keeping my eyes open and I hope that others will do so too. Also I hope that Theaterkunst may eventually add it to their online catalogue if they still have it. Show it to us in all its glory.
