GLOW season 1 TV wrestling costumes on display...

In the debut season of Netflix's 1980s female wrestling dramedy, GLOW, a struggling actress and a former soap star and new mother set aside their differences (the former slept with her best friend's husband) to join a fledgling women's wrestling show organised by a washed-up Hollywood director. Alison Brie stars as faux Russian 'Zoya the Destroyer', whilst Betty Gilpin plays her all-American rival in the ring, 'Liberty Belle'.

Other women gathered together to pitch the female wrestling cable show include character based on racial and class stereotypes, or their actual names. This particular punky pink outfit is worn by Jackie Tohn as 'Melanie Rosen', shorted to the glamorous 'Melrose'.
