A purple and maroon jumpsuit lavishly decorated with rhinestones, diamond-shaped patches, and rhinestone fringe in a western style, culminating in maroon velvet bell-bottom trim and silver tassels, bearing an interior tag inscribed,"Cotroneo Costume / Hollywood / Mr. Campbell Glen / EC 2 / Size 40," and "EC 2" handwritten in black marker on the inside back. Accompanied by a pair of matching arm cuffs, matching belt, a red rhinestone-studded scarf (not original to the costume), and the original rhinestone-decorated sunglasses. Campbell wore this creation when he appeared on ABC's The Donny and Marie Show, which aired on October 21, 1977. Just off the enormous success of his song, "Rhinestone Cowboy" a couple of years prior, Campbell showed off his comedic chops in a spoof which combined his hit song with the James Bond thriller, Goldfinger, called "Rhinestonefinger." At the time, Donny and Marie were in their teens and were the youngest performers in television history to host their own show. Glen Campbell was a regular on many television programs during the 1970s variety show craze."
