If you fancy kitting yourself out in authentic gear from the bigt and small screen, you need to get yourself to Bonhams in March for the Angels Star Collection – the UK’s largest auction of film and TV costumes.
More than 400 outfits are up for grabs, including Obi-Wan’s cloak (£50,000-£60,000), Sean Connery’s dinner jacket from the Bond movie Thunderball (£30,000-£40,000 and pictured), plus other Bond lots, a huge selection of Doctor Who gear and film costumes from blockbusters including Braveheart, Titanic, Indiana Jones and Superman.
Angels is the world’s longest-established supplier of costume to film, theatre and TV (since 1840) and this is said to be the most important archive of costume ever to be sold at auction. Although prices for the classics are high, dig deeper and some retro gems are up for grabs, including various Doctor Who sonic screwdrivers and the dapper costumes of Jon Pertwee in the role and a Prisoner blazer for around £500.
In fact, it’s impossible to list everything – browse the listings at the Bonhams site and if something catches your eye, you can bid on 6th March 2007.
