Deep Space Nine: Grimp

Here is one of the lesser known Ferengi costumes, Grimp.  This little guy is seen in just one episode of Deep Space Nine:  'Bar Association'. He is among other Ferengi that are on strike from Quark's bar due to poor wages and long hours.

The situation works itself out in favor of the Ferengi union, and Quark is worse for wear, but the bond between Quark and his brother Rom is strengthened.

Grimp was played by James Marsden and all of the costume components have his name and no others. It is a very small costume, and I had to use a modified female mannequin to display it.  I chased this Ferengi costume down for about four years as I thought this costume would have the answer to a small mystery for me.  I got my answer, but it wasn't the one I wanted.  Nevertheless, I am very glad to own it as I now have six of the 8 minor Ferengi costumes from that episode.
