ebay costumes - are they real?

Postby na3 on Thu May 10, 2007 3:25 am

Can anyone tell me whether this is for real or not?

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/FARSCAPE-SCARRAN ... dZViewItem

I've contacted both the Henson company and Creation Entertainment about them.

I'm a puppeteer and a Farscape fan, and I find it highly doubtful that these items are original. But then, I'm not so much of a Farscape fan to know what kinds of items are generally released from Henson/other companies for public consumption.

(I'd love a piece of the real puppetry... but I don't think I'd pay several thousand for a Scarran headpiece)

Anyone have a clue?

I think this is probably real.

Henson donated a lot of Farscape Costumes to Creation Entertainment and they have been auctioning them off for a couple of years now.

This isn't the first Scarran costume I have seen Creation Ent. sell (although I don't know which Scarran "Darko" is/was).

Good luck!

Thanks - I didn't know they would sell them. What other costumes/puppet mechanics have they already sold?

Yes this is definitely real. You can count on anything sold by Creation.

Henson company gave all costumes and props to Creation. Creation has been selling them off over the last few years. What they have now is pretty much the end of the inventory so if there is something you want, you had best get it.

Ok, thanks. (I'm not sure if I want to bid... it's a bit out of my price range at the moment, and I don't want to be outbid)
