Dr. Bashir Mirror Universe Stunt
Here is one of the rare DS9 mirror universe costumes offered up for auction. This is the stunt version of the Dr. Bashir costume which never surfaced, so this is the only example I am aware of for this costume. It is great because it has the shirt, leather pants, leather belt, and the wonderful tall boots. I think the boots really make the costume stand out well. This piece was worn by Jeff Cadiente, Siddig's stunt man and recurring performer on several of the series. I enjoyed the mirror universe for its creativity, willingness to sacrifice characters, and its continued interaction with the "normal" universe throughout DS9.
