The Golden Closet Newsletter Blog Mar. 2009
Another month is upon us here at The Golden Closet and we continue to offer collectors only the finest in screen used wardrobe and props. Last month we held numerous Ebay auctions featuring items from a wide assortment of films and television series and participated in a live High Noon auction that featured some of our best Western themed wardrobe used in Hollywood productions.
We recently acquired some key pieces of music memorabilia to offer to collectors, including some exciting pieces of James Brown memorabilia ranging from stage worn garments to awards and plaques awarded to the legendary Godfather of Soul over the course of his impressive career. His green “S.E.X.” jumpsuit is an amazing signature costume worn on stage during live performances, and the rhinestone embellished “Taurus” custom made two-piece suit owned by Mr. Brown represents all the flash and style which came to characterize his incredible personality.
In addition, we are pleased to offer an unparalleled collection of garments worn by Britney Spears in the video for the title track of her hit comeback album “Circus”. The most impressive piece in our collection is the vintage gold showgirl body suit, which Ms. Spears wore not only in the video, but also in a Rolling Stone Magazine shoot, as well as on the cover of the single’s U.S. release. Britney’s “Ringmaster” costume comprised of a Vivienne Westwood corset, vintage jacket with tails, sequined hot pants, and vintage top hat will also be featured in the upcoming Profiles In History auction to be held on May 1st. Details on the auction can be found on their website www.profilesinhistory.com.
We also have other new items in our inventory, including screen used wardrobe from the series Deadwood, Sharon Stone wardrobe worn in Casino, an original production script from Scarface starring Al Pacino, a Paul Newman shirt worn in The Sting, Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly cowboy hat from Back To The Future 3, several new items worn by Madonna in Evita, and continue to offer one of the most extensive collections of Sopranos memorabilia featuring select items from the personal collection of Mr. James Gandolfini, who played Tony Soprano on the show.
The Motion Picture Prop Company has featured an article on our company on their online magazine site. For those unfamiliar with the M.P.P.C., their company provides forums where entertainment memorabilia dealers and collectors can exchange information and converse on forums in order to benefit the entire collecting community. The Golden Closet would like to thank Mr. Lee Malone for running a feature on our company and helping us get the word out to collectors that might wish to know more about us and our business practices.
