CELEBRITY UGGS

himym-christmas-1

It’s vital to have a warm pair of boots for marching through the streets of New York in winter, and if you’re in Manhattan, they better be stylish as well. How I Met Your Mother’s Lily Aldrin (Alyson Hannigan) conquered Big Apple winters (and trips to her husband’s hometown in Minnesota) by wearing a pair of black (with grey fur) Uggs boots in multiple episodes of the series – and VIP Fan Auctions is now offering Lily’s Uggs to the fan who casts the winning bid. Click here for photos and more information about the size 7 leather, sheepskin and rubber Uggs – and score yourself a deal on a pair of designer boots that are as functional as they are popular!

 

MINNESOTA CHIC

For a goofy guy from Minnesota, Marshall Eriksen (Jason Segel) seemed right at home as a hotshot lawyer-turned-judge in New York City. While he seemed most comfortable in T-shirts, flannels and hoodies (and, yes, Dr. Seuss hats), he was not afraid to flash some fashion sense at times. Case in point: the John Varvatos leather coat he wore on How I Met Your Mother – which VIP Fan Auctions is currently offering to the fan who casts the winning bid. Click here for more information and photos of this exceptional piece of wardrobe, and get in on the bidding today!

 

O CAPTAIN! MY CAPTAIN!

George “The Captain” Van Smoot enjoyed an intertwined saga in How I Met Your Mother. He is the fabulously wealthy husband of activist/Ted’s girlfriend Zoey Pierson (Jennifer Morrison). He is an old friend of Marshall’s former horrible boss at Goliath National Bank, Arthur Hobbs. And he offered Lily (Alyson Hannigan) her dream job as an art consultant in Italy; and he is the recipient of a punch in the face by Marshall the night before Barney’s wedding. The actor who played The Captain, Kyle MacLachlin, also has in intertwined history with hit prime time series including Sex and the City, Twin Peaks (he will reprise his role as Special Agent Dale Cooper when Showtime resurrects the cult hit in 2016), Desperate Housewives, How I Met Your Mother – and a current pivotal role in Agents of SHIELD. VIP Fan Auctions is now offering an opportunity to own a piece of MacLachlin’s remarkable TV career with the Brooks Brothers sweater and silk Hermes Paris tie he wore during the eighth-season HIMYM episode “Romeward Bound” (pictured above).

OWN J-LO’S BLING

Jlo

When international superstar singer/actress/American idol judge Jennifer Lopez visited the fifth season of How I Met Your Mother, she left some of her jewelry behind. Lopez, who played self-help guru Anita – author of the book “Of Course You’re Still Single, Take a Look at Yourself, You Dumb Slut” – in the episode titled “Of Course,” wore the necklace (pictured above) and bracelets as she attempted to break Barney’s (Neil Patrick Harris) womanizing spirit in a scheme hatched with Robin (Cobie Smulders). While she couldn’t bring down Barney, VIP Fan Auctions is offering one fan an opportunity to own J-Lo’s screen-worn bling! Click here to see photos of each piece and get in on the bidding today!

 

VOWS OF LAUGHER

Writing wedding vows nearly ruined Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris). He compiled pages and pages of promises to his bride, Robin (Cobie Smulders), but ultimately dumped them all vowing to simply tell her the truth. While the agony Barney went through in compiling his wedding vows made for some fantastically funny television, one fan will have an opportunity to own 16 pages of the vows he never got to say during the ninth-season episode “The End of the Aisle” – and if you think How I Met Your Mother was funny on on-screen, wait until you read Barney’s words that never aired!

METAPHYSICAL GRAFFITI

Warehouse 13 artifacts are infused with some amazing powers, many linked to historical events – such as the Berlin Wall spray paint featured in the third-season episode “The 40th Floor.” The spray paint is infused with its original owner’s dream of seeing the Berlin Wall torn down. In present times, anything on which the paint is sprayed will disintegrate (and painting the anarchy symbol will speed up the process). VIP Fan Auctions is now offering a set of three cans of Berlin Wall spray paint featured in the episode – as well as a screen-used steam punk earpiece, Diana K. Snow’s business cards used by highest-ranking Warehouse Regent Adwin Kosain (it’s an anagram of his name), Sally Stukowski’s ring and a set of Regenbogen Spruhfarbe labels. Click here to see photos of each piece and claim your artifact from the Syfy hit Warehouse 13!

 

PINBALL WIZARD

As one of New York’s top young architects, it should come as no surprise that Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) has eclectic taste in décor. His apartment on How I Met Your Mother is loaded with insights into his interests and tastes, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering one of the most interesting pieces of set dressing from Ted’s place. The wood-and-metal vintage pinball playing surface (pictured above) that can be seen hanging on Ted’s wall in multiple episodes is now available to the HIMYM fan who casts the winning bid. The unique piece measures 20.5 x 40 inches and features women baseball player art and bumpers. Click here for close-up photos and more information – and place your bid today!

ANCIENT BLADES

In the ancient world, where one may encounter angry gods, giant lions and assorted monsters, it’s a good idea to carry a sharp blade – preferably a big one. Even Hercules (Dwayne Johnson), a demigod whose strength knew no match, carried a dagger for protection. VIP Fan Auctions is offering several screen-used pieces of ancient weaponry from the Hercules movie, including the title character’s dagger, a sword wielded by Gryza (Christopher Fairbanks), a set of sickles used by the Bessi Clan – and a lion shield used by Cotys’s Army. Don’t miss your chance to claim one of the remaining pieces of prop weaponry from Hercules – click here to view all of the available Hercules items and place your bid today!
