The Jackson memorabilia was the highlight of an auction of hundreds of rock’n’roll items, including many not associated with the “King of Pop,” who died in June.
Darren Julien, CEO of Julien’s Auctions, which ran the auction, called the glove “the Holy Grail of Michael Jackson,” and many expected it to sell for far more than its pre-sale estimate of about $50,000.
With the added commission, the final price excluding taxes, ran to some $420,000.
Wow, almost half a million dollars for a glove. It’s interesting that the pre-sales estimates priced it at only $50,000. It just goes to show, NEVER underestimate the power of Michael Jackson fans!
This is interesting. A group of Dutch designers have a new line of “fragmented” clothing that snaps together like Legos. The same garment can be worn in a variety of ways, completely altering the design, and the individual pieces can be washed separately.
What a fun idea. Plus, if you gain or lose weight, a few extra snaps will keep the garment fitting perfectly. Very convenient!
The click/fold assembly system allows you to wear the same garment in countless ways and replace the parts separately.
To create an interlocking skirt or dress, the square- and star-shaped modules are pieced together via small slices in the wool, which eliminates the need for yarn. (The felt doesn’t fray, either.) The resulting mosaic-like clothing can be worn in a variety of dynamic ways, so you can get by with fewer clothes and yet never get bored.
Today is a big day for Twilight fans, as New Moon opens in theaters. Anticipation for this movie is so high, New Moon has broken a record for the Top 10 Advance Ticket Sellers of All-Time. Very impressive!
I admit, I’m not personally a fan of this series, but I know a lot of MD readers love the Twilight Saga. I found this picture of Edward cosplay – it’s pretty good, don’t you think?
Here’s a clip from New Moon, and a few fun “Then and Now” photos from Yahoo. I hope you all enjoy the movie!
What a great costume – made entirely out of recycled material!
Lately, Hollywood has been getting a bad rap for their excessive waste during movie productions. Reel Green Media is an environmental consulting company for the entertainment industry, and they’ve put together a “green” costume campaign in an effort to help the movie industry reduce their environmental impact.
As you can see, this costume is made of empty bottles, old batteries, plastic bags, wire hangers, magazines and cardboard. Pretty cool!
Dubbed The Sustainable Sirens, this campaign plans to debut 6 recycled costumes by Earth Day, 2010.
So far, only one dress has been made, and it will be on display this afternoon, Nov. 19, at a fashion show from 5 pm – 8 pm at Code C, 8641 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles.
