Place your bids on TV history: Spock's ears, Yeoman Rand's red dress and so much more

Remember how on the original "Star Trek" the 1960s-inspired alien outfits for the females used to seem to just be pasted on???? All filmy and glittery and whatever, with lots of flesh exposed??? Well, maybe you can drum up some cash and see for yourself just how those gowns stayed on and held together -- Profiles in History is at it again, offering up some truly delicious screen-used outfits and props for auction this next month. Included in the offerings is that pink gown crossing Leslie Parrish's torso in the most intriguing way in the episode "Who Mourns for Adonais?" as well as uniforms worn by Nichelle Nichols as Uhura, Majel Barrett Roddenberry as Nurse Chapel and several other crew members.

Flip through the auction book here.

Just the "Trek" assortment is quite astonishing, but Profiles in History is also including stuff like a chair from the set of '70s "The Incredible Hulk" and scripts from ABC's "General Hospital" in this, its Hollywood Auction 83. The movie stuff is a lot heavier than the TV stuff this time around, but lots of goodies can be had. The auction runs June 29 - July 1, 2016, 11 a.m. PST.

Happy Memorial Day, by the way! May your day be a peaceful one.

Is that the show that was on sci fi? I really liked that show. Very informative. said...

You mean Profiles in History? It's an auction that happens periodically. Don't know if it's been featured on TV, though.
