Hrothgar Belt Pieces

One of the things that always really impressed me about Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess was the attention to detail in costuming.  Each week, both shows featured dozens of beautiful new costumes with incredible workmanship.  It’s sometimes interesting to look at the little pieces that went into making the costume unique.

These are a series of molded plastics details that were created for Hrothgar (John Leigh)’s costume for the 6th season Xena episode, “Return of the Valkyrie.”  I bought them from a private collector.

It was difficult to get a screencapture where Hrothgar’s belt was clearly visible since most of his scenes are quite dark but in the one below you can catch a glimpse of the larger square decoration.
