Deep Space Nine: Maihar Du

No self respecting Nagus would be caught without his Hupyrian servant, so for the final post of 2012, I thought I would post this Ferengi related costume:  Maihar'du.  The character appeared in 7 episodes, but this costume was only in 4.
The first appearance of this costume was in the the season 3 episode 'Prophet Motive'.

The second appearance was in the season 5 episode 'Ferengi Love Songs'.

Season 7 gave us the final times we would see Maihar'du and this particular costume with 'The Emperor's New Cloak' and finally 'The Dogs Of War'.

The character of Maihar'du was played by Tiny Ron and all of the costume components have tags with his name.  The sheer size of the costume precludes the use of a standard sized mannequin, so regrettably, I have to use the auction photos here.
