NOTHING IS HIGHER THAN ARCHITECT

Cover_new_yorker

When How I Met Your Mother’s Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) becomes the youngest architect to design a New York City skyscraper – Goliath National Bank – the distinction lands the 33-year-old architect on the cover of New York magazine. Sure, there was some concern about having to demolish the historic Arcadian Hotel to make room for the bank, but the building launches Ted’s architecture career and catapults him into the pantheon of other great fictional architects, including Mike Brady and George “Art Vandelay” Costanza. The copy of New York magazine featuring Ted’s mug on the cover – featured on-screen in the first two episodes of the seventh season – is now available to the fan who casts the winning bid at VIP Fan Auctions.…

HOW I MET YOUR TOMB RAIDER

cobiecroft

Robin Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders) will go to great lengths to have anything that she cannot have. Case in point – when she learns she is allergic to lobster, she binges on it, despite the massive swelling. When she attempts to get back together with Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), her methods include a variety of seductive outfits, including dressing like Tomb Raider heroine Lara Croft – complete with the high-heel boots, holsters, belt and sleeveless shirt (pictured above) carefully selected to get Barney’s attention. VIP Fan Auctions is now offering her screen-worn tribute to Tomb Raider to the fan who casts the winning bid!…

THE MARRYING MAN

marrying

How I Met Your Mother’s Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) strives to be awesome in all things: He wears awesome suits; he’s embroiled in an awesome slap bet; when he gets sad, he stops being sad to be awesome instead. In fact, the only time Barney wasn’t at his most awesome may have been in the ninth-season episode “The End of the Aisle” when he completely panics while trying to write his wedding vows – which, it turns out, are as awesome as if Lionel Richie had written them. The vows didn’t come easy, however – it took at least 16 pages to get them right – but one fan has the opportunity to claim the original, screen-used vows, including poetry and jokes, written by Barney.…

GET A COLLEGE DIPLOMA IN ONE CLICK

COLLEGEHIMYM

Wesleyan University is one of the nation’s most prestigious colleges. In entertainment alone, it is the alma mater of Avengers director Joss Whedon, The West Wing’s Bradley Whitford, Transformers director Michael Bay – and, of course, How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM) creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. Not-so-coincidentally, it’s also where HIMYM characters Marshall (Jason Segel), Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Ted (Josh Radnor) first met and consumed many “sandwiches” – and VIP Fan Auctions is offering Marshall Eriksen’s fictional diploma from the venerable institution. Best of all, Marshall’s BA degree in Political Science and Humanitarian Studies can be yours without setting foot in a classroom!…

O, CANADA!

Robin

How I Met Your Mother’s Robin Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders) is not exactly a girly girl – she plays hockey, drinks beer and hunts moose. That’s what made her surprise appearance to Barney’s (Neil Patrick Harris) apartment in the eighth-season episode “Lobster Crawl” wearing nothing but her coat and a negligee such a showstopper. Granted, Robin is also fiercely competitive, and the bold fashion statement was part of a ploy to win back Barney (of course, he knew this and was countering her strategy all along by pretending to be entertaining Patrice, leading up to his proposal). Still, fans of the series saw Robin in a whole new light – and the fan that casts the winning bid can take home this landmark piece of wardrobe!…

GET BUZZED

beekeeper

Chris Elliott is a comedy legend – and the notion of him in a beekeeper suit is a special kind of funny. Such is the genius of How I Met Your Mother, in which Elliott plays Lily’s (Alyson Hannigan) ne’er-do-well board-game-inventing father, Mickey. The beekeeper uniform Chris Elliott wore in the seventh-season episode “The Burning Beekeeper,” in which he was keeping bees in his basement as part of a new get-rich-quick scheme, is now available at VIP Fan Auctions. The episode also marked a momentous occasion in the history of the series as series creator Carter bays told Redditt earlier this year that it’s the one he most regrets: “I wish we’d had an extra week of writing, an extra week of shooting, and an extra week of editing for ‘The Burning Beekeeper.’ It was a science project that we just ran out of time on.…
