When the mood to dress up as your favourite science fiction character strikes – whether for a convention, say, or a party, or just because it’s part of your Tuesday routine – these costumes from the Prop Store’s auction could be just what you need.
Ripley’s (Sigourney Weaver) Prison Uniform
Alien 3 (1992)
Worn by Sigourney Weaver herself early in the film, this bears the Weyland Yutani Corporation logo and would let you channel the science fiction universe’s biggest badass.Auction price estimate: £1,000-£1,500
Robin’s (Chris O’Donnell) Bodysuit And Cape
Batman & Robin (1997)
When you want to dress as a superhero, but the idea of becoming Batman seems a little too dark, try Robin. Acrobatic, athletic and eager, he might be a sidekick, but he still kicks ass. Don’t mind the Bat-nipples, though.
Auction price estimate: £6,000-£8,000
Apollo’s (Jamie Bamber) Pegasus Commander Duty Blues
Battlestar Galactica: Razor (2007)
The rebooted Battlestar Galactica was one of the best sci-fi TV series – heck, TV series - period of the last few years, so this is an exciting chance to take charge of one of the uniforms, worn by Jamie Bamber. People will be exclaiming, “So say we all!” as you pass.
Auction price estimate: £3,000-£4,000
Lord Marshal’s (Colm Feore) Hero Helmet
The Chronicles Of Riddick (2004)
Should you feel you’d rather be a villain than a hero, the why not pick up Colm Feore’s hero helmet, from when he played the Necromonger leader? Just don’t go threatening any Vin Diesel look-alikes.
Auction price estimate: £4,000-£6,000
Leela’s (Louise Jameson) “The Invasion of Time” Costume
Doctor Who (1963-1989)
Auction price estimate: £12,500-£15,000
Spock’s (Leonard Nimoy) Science Officer Costume
Star Trek (TV 1966)
Possibly one of the most iconic and memorable science fiction costumes of all time, this was made especially for Leonard Nimoy. Wear it in his memory, or put it on display.
Auction price estimate: £50,000-£70,000
Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi (1983)
Though you’ll want to try to find the body to go with it, dressing up as one of the warrior teddy bears that helped take down the Empire is sure to get you noticed.Auction price estimate: £1,800-£2,200
The Terminator’s (Arnold Schwarzenegger) SFX Crane Chase Jacket
Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines (2003)
With Arnold Schwarzenegger back on our screens in his most famous role, what better time to dress as the cyborg killer-turned hero. It has a little bit of damage, but it was designed that way. Hasta La Vista...Auction price estimate: £4,000-£6,000
Chakotay’s (Robert Beltran) EVA Suit
Star Trek Voyager (1995-2001) & Star Trek: First Contact (1996)
A costume that has seen the rigors of outer space – albeit thanks to green screen? Surely this is a must-own item that has seen duty in Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager.
Auction Price Estimate: £8,000 - £10,000
