By now you should know I'm a huge fan of seeing original movie and television costumes, props and paraphenalia on display. I'm always asked if I own all the costumes and props I feature on this blog, but sadly no I'm not a collector, although looking through Prop Store's latest catalogue from their upcoming live auction on September 23, 2015, there are many items I would snap up in a heartbeat if funds allowed. The auction will feature memorabilia from the worlds of Star Wars, Star Trek, James Bond, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, Batman, Pirates of the Caribbean and more besides, but here's some of the fantastic pieces that really caught my eye whilst browsing the extensive auction catalogue.
Janty Yates was the Oscar-winning Costume Designer on the film and if you're a fan of the movie, be sure to also check out another Commodus costume, his throne and more Gladiator costumes photographed on display at Universal Studios Hollywood here at Hollywood Movie Costumes and Props.
This show-stopping ceremonial Roman Emperor costume is expected to sell for between £15,000-£20,000.
Fizzgig is the loyal companion of the film's Gelfling heroine 'Kira' and joins her and fellow Gelfling, 'Jen', on their quest to find the missing shard of the magical crystal.
This wonderful ball of fur was designed by Brian Froud, who also worked on Jim Henson's equally spellbinding Labyrinth film, and this screen-used puppet can be yours for £8,000-£10,000.
The legendary Bob Ringwood (Batman, Dune, Troy) was Costume Designer on the movie and this dress could be yours for £2,000-£3,000.
Up for grabs are Uhura's red female communications officer miniskirt dress and Spock's blue science officer Starfleet uniform, designed by William Ware Theiss, plus more Star Trek memorabilia from the various TV shows and movies.
Uhura's classic costume is expected to sell for £20,000-£30,000, whilst Spock's uniform for £50,000-£70,000, especially following Leonard Nimoy's passing in February earlier this year.
Louise Jameson's leather outfit was considered skimpy at the time, but kept the dads watching, and I believe was designed by John Bloomfield.
One thing I wish they'd do in the new era of Doctor Who is to introduce an alien Companion or two for the time-traveler.
This original leather mini-dress costume, complete with replica knife and scabbard, could join your Doctor Who collection for £12,500-£15,000.
The auction also features other pieces from the 50-year-old British science fiction show, and if you're a fellow Whovian, be sure to also enjoy all these costumes, props, monsters and aliens on display at the Doctor Who Experience exhibition.
The film's Costume Designer was Yvonne Blake, obviously inspired by the DC Comics character created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster in 1933.
To own this piece of cinematic history will cost you £25,000-£30,000.
This head appliance worn by Michael Chiklis as the ever lovin' blue-eyed 'Thing' looks eerily life-like and personally I much preferred this movie look to the new CGI version in Josh Trank's horrible Fantastic 4 reboot.
This prosthetic makeup head is a steal for FF fans at £600-£800.
