Are you a fan of The Twilight Saga movies? If so, now's your chance to get your hands on over 900 original costumes, props and set decoration pieces from the five romantic fantasy movies that adapted Stephenie Meyer's bestselling novels, courtesy of Prop Store and Summit Entertainment. The two-day live-auction event takes place at the TCL Chinese Theaters in L.A. on November 19 and 20, 2016, so now's your chance to indulge your inner vampire, werewolf or romantic.

First up is the dramatic bloodstained wedding dress from Bella Swan's nightmare scene in the fourth film, it's such a cool piece and resembles a Zombie Bride Halloween costume that I wore several years ago in West Hollywood.

If only I could fit into this gown I'd snap it up with an estimated asking price of $1,500 to $2,000, plus there's a matching bloodstained Edward Cullen wedding suit also up for grabs in the auction of the perfect 'his and her' horror look.

Next up is Robert Pattinson's iconic look from the first movie, which features a grey double-breasted peacoat worn by Edward Cullen when he reveals to Bella he's actually an immortal vampire and shows off his incredible abilities.

This original costume from the 2008 movie adaptation is expected to sell for $2,000 to $3,000, so I'm sure this will be top of collectors wish-lists.

Jacob Black's motorcycle costume worn by Taylor Lautner

And whether you are 'Team Edward' or 'Team Jacob', there's something for everyone in this auction worn or used as a prop by their favourite actor or actress.

This motorcycle outfit was worn by Taylor Lautner in the fourth movie when he goes to visit Bella at the Cullen house and discovers she's pregnant and consists of a cool brown leather jacket, which I actually saw on display at ArcLight Hollywood cinema in 2011, along with his motorcycle and other film props, when the movie was released.

This hero costume is expected to fetch $2,000 to $3,000 at auction.

Bella Swan's charm bracelet from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

In addition to cool costumes, there are some pretty integral props and costume jewelry from the movie available for purchase, like this wolf charm bracelet given to Bella by Jacob in 2010's Eclipse movie. This piece of cinematic history is priced around $2,000 to $3,000.

Bella Swan's engagement ring from The Twilight Saga

And if you thought her wedding dress was cool, then you'll probably fall in love with the diamond engagement ring given to Bella by Edward in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and worn by Kristen Stewart at the start of Breaking Dawn Part 1 before the sweethearts are married.

Expected to sell for between $3,000 to $5,000 (or more, as I think this will be a really popular item), for the ring's full specifications and size information be sure to visit Prop Store's live-auction website.

Jane's Volturi costume worn by Dakota Fanning

And finally, my last top pick is this rich purple costume worn by Dakota Fanning as the Volturi Jane in the latter films in the franchise. Not only do I love the actress, but the colour of this jacket she wears in London is really opulent (accompanied by a black lace dress) and I like the Volturi necklace which comes with the outfit. At an expected selling price of $1,000 to $1,500 it sounds like a bit of a bargain for fans.

If you like this selection of items, make sure you click through and check out all the amazing movie memorabilia that's going under the hammer from The Twilight Saga films.
