Karen Gillan's Ruby Roundhouse Costume from Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
This original Ruby Roundhouse costume was purchased in auction from Propstore of London in conjunction with Sony Pictures in March 2018.
Martha, as played by Karen Gillan, wore this skimpy 'Lara Croft' style outfit when she first materialized in the video game. Martha played Jumanji as the avatar Ruby Roundhouse, the fighter.
When it was first revealed - there was widespread criticism over the poster for the movie, which features the Scottish actress in tiny shorts and a crop top, and her male co-stars in practical safari gear.
“Strangely I just saw it as a positive, Gillan said. “Everyone was right, when you look at that picture out of context it looks absurd that the woman is dressed like that and then the men are covered — but that is exactly the trope that we were highlighting in Nineties video games.
“She’s meant to be like Lara Croft, that’s the reference, this ridiculous male fantasy. So we had to go that way with the costume to make that point. The fact that the picture sparked that kind of debate I think is actually a positive thing for people to be having those conversations.”
