As the residents of Harmony prepare to bid farewell to their legions of fans, Passions fans have a chance to do some bidding of their own -- in an online auction of some of the many props used during the soap's nine-year run. NBC Universal Television has partnered with Premiere Props for this once-in-a-lifetime farewell auction that will boast over 750 costumes and key hero props from Passions. A portion of the proceeds from the auction will benefit the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
Now, Gwen fans will no longer be fighting with Theresa fans. They'll be fighting with each other for the chance to own wedding gowns, magic wands and many other items.
"We are happy to partner with Premiere Props on this live event, exposing fans and collectors to unique props and costumes," said Stacey Ward, Director, NBC Universal Television DVD, Music and Consumer Products Group. "This event will help commemorate the shows' success and impact on daytime television, while rewarding fans with the opportunity to own a piece of their favorite show."
Among the items to be auctioned off are numerous memorable costumes worn by the show's stars. To view the entire catalog, please click here. Some of the costumes up for bidding include:
• Rebecca Hotchkiss' (Andrea Evans) "Wonder Woman of the Justice League" costume. The costume size is listed as small/petite.
