Glee, "Cheerios" Cheerleading Jacket
original movie costume
This red female letterman's jacket with "M" megaphone patch and faux-lambswool split-zip hood was worn by unknown actresses as members of the "Cheerios" cheerleading team on Glee.
Made by Albion, a label of Broadway Cheerleading, it features an 80% wool/20% nylon outer body and is a size 34. This style of jacket was worn by the Cheerios for all 6 seasons of the show, and this particular example features moderate wear with a very stiffly-arched collar from extensive use.
This particular jacket also has hard-to-decipher cursive lettering handwritten on the reverse of the materials label. Frankly, I'm not even sure which side is "up," so I've included an image flipped both ways. Does it read "ZM" or "ZW" in one direction? "C [something]" in another? I don't know. The figure in the center that looks like a C when upside-down looks like it may be a separate character from the rest of the writing, but I'm not at all sure. If you have a suggestion on what this cursive lettering says--or if you know of a Cheerio whose name matches whatever you think this says--feel free to leave your impression in the comments!
[The cheerleading shell top pictured under the jacket is a first-season-style Quinn top. A listing for that is coming eventually...]
EDIT: This particular Cheerios jacket has been sold, and is no longer part of my collection. The listing will remain here for historical purposes, unless the new owner requests its removal.
