ScreenBid is auctioning off many items that were used on the set of HBO’s True Blood over the last seven seasons. Items will go to auction from the 20th August 2014 and conclude on the 25th of August 2014. There are 54 items in total as part of this rare opportunity to obtain genuine prop and costume items from True Blood.

Details of the auctioning process are below:

FAQ
Q: How do you get all these items?
A:ScreenBid conducts auctions on behalf of studios and producers who want to make props, wardrobe items, set decoration and other items available to fans and collectors.

Q: But how do I know it’s authentic?
A: Because ScreenBid conducts auctions on behalf of studios and producers, everything we sell comes direct from the source. And every ScreenBid item comes with a Certificate of Authenticity issued by the studio or producer, guaranteeing the authenticity of your purchase.
To ensure you know exactly who certifies authenticity, ScreenBid posts that information on every item’s individual page.

Q: Will I know if someone has outbid me?
A: You sure will. We’ll email you.

Q: Can the computer bid for me?
A: Sort of. You can set a maximum bid – some people call it a “proxy bid” on any item. If someone bids higher than your earlier bid, the computer will automatically increase your bid until you either win or reach your maximum. Other bidders won’t know that you’ve placed a maximum bid. They’ll just know that they have been outbid.

Q: How do I know if I’ve won?
A: You can watch the auction as it closes – it’s really interesting. But you don’t have to. ScreenBid emails all winners as soon as their item closes.

Q: I won! Now what?
A: Well congratulations! The next few steps are easy – and they’re up to you.
You’ll receive an email outlining what to do. We will bill the credit card we have on file for you after the entire auction has ended. If you’d rather pay by cash, check, wire transfer, or PayPal, we’re happy to accommodate you. When you receive your invoice, let us know immediately that you want to pay by a method other than credit card. We’ll take care of it.

Q: Will you ship my item to me?
A: While you are welcome to make any delivery arrangements you’d like, we are happy to have our shipping department help you. Whether we ship or you make other arrangements, we include a $14.95 handling fee on all items ($24.95 for items shipped outside the United States), and large items may require an additional fee.
Our shipping department sends all items individually — one item per package. If you have us ship for you, we’ll send you a tracking number as soon as your package leaves our facility. To protect you, we insure all items for the full amount you pay. Your invoice will list the cost of that insurance.

Q: I live outside the United States. Can you help me with shipping?

A: Sure!
There’s a handling charge of $24.95 for international shipments, and you will, of course, be responsible for any tariffs, duties, import fees or other requirements imposed by your government.

True Blood’s Costume Designer on Dressing Vampires

August 10, 2011

Audrey Fisher Talks to The Hollywood Reporter:

Alexander Skarsgård as True Blood’s Eric Northman S4 Ep2For fans of HBO’s True Blood, it’s not always about the vampires – sometimes it’s about the amazing costumes they wear! Recently, The Hollywood Reporter talked to costume designer Audrey Fisher about how she picks the clothes the hottest vamps in town like to wear.

While Alexander Skarsgård is currently a board shorts and hoodie kind of guy, he started the season with a lot more style. As Fisher puts it:

“This season, he’s more kind of rocker goth, a heightened black prince.”

She had him dressed in black leather for the first few episodes — a look that many fans loved.

For Pam, she also had a black leather theme happening, this time because she wanted a battle goddess inspired look, since Pam seems to spend a lot of her time defending what is hers this season. There are plenty of corsets and fabulously Gothic jewellery. However, her look also takes a decided change, just like that of her makers. Once the rotting curse hits her, she goes from showing lots of skin, to trying to cover up. Fisher has this to say about her black veiled number:

“Pam’s flesh starts to rot and fall off her body. It’s a harsh blow because she’s so fierce with her beauty and uses it as a weapon. So she covers herself like a Sicilian widow. She has this phenomenal black lace hat that a friend of mine who’s a milliner made. She’s this unbelievable kind of black widow. We called it rot couture.”

Finally, she discussed Bill’s wardrobe. In Season 4, we find Bill with a promotion. He is now the vampire King of Louisiana. His wardrobe has been altered accordingly. We no longer see him in his trademark Henley shirts, it’s suits all the way now baby! His house also got a makeover to suit his change in status.

Check out the style photos here and let True Blood Net know which one is your vampy fave.
