WATCH HER

Orphan Black’s Rachel Duncan (Tatiana Maslany) is one of television’s all-time most complicated characters. She is a self-aware clone, essentially raised by the twisted scientific organization that created her, which has made her a ruthless pro-clone who ultimately helps her sisters after her fall from power. One of her many secrets is hidden in the antique stopwatch she wears as a necklace (pictured) during the fifth season of Orphan Black, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering this iconic piece of screen-used jewelry to the fan who places the winning bid. The necklace also comes with a hidden SD card. Don’t miss your chance to own this piece of jewelry form one of television’s most creative series.

PAINT IT ‘BLACK’

Say what you will about Orphan Black’s Rachel Duncan (Tatiana Maslany), she is as unpredictable as she is calculating. With Cosima and her lab partner Scott trying to crack a code scribbled by clone creator Ethan Duncan in a copy of The Island of Dr. Moreau, Rachel knows the code – and she’s painting the symbols as part of her therapy. A collection of several of Rachel’s screen-used paintings from the third season are now being offered by VIP Fan Auctions. Each of the six prints measure roughly 13-by-19 inches, look fantastic with any décor – and hold images related to the science of Orphan black cloning.

‘BLACK’ SHEEP

Masks can be haunting, silly and symbolic – and in the case of hacker clone MK’s (Tatiana Maslany) sheep mask on Orphan Black, it can be both. “The idea of the mask is really interesting to me, and the fact that all the clones have the same face – there’s something to that, too,” says Orphan Black Star Tatiana Maslany in a BBC America video extra titled Behind the Sheep Mask. “But the sheep mask, itself – there’s a Dolly the Sheep reference there.” While Dolly the Sheep is the first mammal to be successfully cloned, creating the mask for Orphan black was a painstaking process – 19 versions of a sheep mask were created to choose the perfect version for the fourth season of Orphan Black – and VIP Fan Auctions is offering the sheep mask worn on-screen by MK (with the right ear intentionally distressed for the series) to the fan who casts the winning bid. A fox mask received form production is also included, so click here for information and photos of each – and get in on the bidding today! This auction ends soon!

 

BLOODY MESS, BLOODY DRESS

Orphan Black’s fifth-season episode “Guillotines Decide” is a bloody mess in the best possible way. A masterpiece, the episode Rachel Duncan (Tatiana Maslany), once the most despised of the clones, has a moment of glorious revenge against the organization that twisted her, but it’s not without pain. She is rescued from the Dyad Institute, but not without a little do-it-yourself eye surgery – and VIP Fan Auctions is offering Rachel’s screen-worn, blood-stained dress and shoes from the unforgettable scene. To complete the look, VIP is also offering the bloody wig Maslany wears as Rachel during the gory scene. Don’t miss your chance for a gory piece of Orphan Black history – check out all of the available Orphan Black props and wardrobe items currently available – and join the bidding today!

 

ANGRY ANGEL’S FORTUNE TELLER

When an “Angry Angel” arrives in the middle of the night and leaves a paper “fortune-teller,” you better pay close attention to what’s written inside it. The origami fortune-teller (pictured above) that Helena (Tatiana Maslany) left for Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) in the first-season episode “Effects of Uncertain Conditions,” was part calling-card and part clue. The symbols and numbers on the fortune-teller are directions – unfortunately, all choices lead to “death” – and are literally covered in stage blood. VIP Fan Auctions is offering Helena’s fortune teller to the fan who casts the winning bid – also included with the paper game are evidence photos nabbed from the precinct. Don’t miss this chance to claim a quirky piece of Orphan Black history straight from the set – check out photos and more information and join the bidding today.

 

LITTLE ‘BLACK’ BOOKS

What secrets could be stored away in the diaries of clones? VIP Fan Auctions is making it possible for fans to find out by offering the screen-used notebooks owned by Orphan Black’s MK and Cosima (both played by Tatiana Maslany). The iconic notebook used by MK (pictured above) on-screen in the fourth and fifth seasons of the series includes daily journal logs (in a foreign language), doodles, newspaper clippings, postcards and a photo of Nikki (two stunt notebooks with the same cover but blank inside are also included). A second set of notebooks that belonged to Cosima includes her list of names of Leda clones, two daily health journals, a research journal and a notebook – all featured on-screen in the fourth-season episode “From Dancing Mice to Psychopaths.” Click here to see all of the available Orphan Black items and join the bidding today!

 

PROCLONE PATCH

Rachel Duncan is as unique as any clone can be. Played by the incomparable Tatiana Maslany (of course), Rachel works for the Dyad Institute – her job is to bring other self-aware clones under its control. She will seemingly stop at nothing – including kidnapping – to bring Sarah Manning and the rest of the Clone Club to their knees. Rachel’s evil ways eventually get her a pencil to the eye, leaving her in an eyepatch (until she is fitted with a robotic eye – which she ultimately removes in a grisly self-operation with a broken glass). VIP Fan Auctions is offering Rachel’s eye patch (and lipstick) from the third season of Orphan Black.

IN THE ‘BLACK’

It wasn’t until Orphan Black’s Sarah Manning found herself at the center of a live-or-die conspiracy that she found direction – and quickly emerged as one of the most compelling characters on television (not to mention a groundbreaking performance by Tatiana Maslany as Sarah as numerous other clones). While Orphan Black may have come to a close (for now), however, VIP Fan Auctions is offering a closet-full of Sarah Manning’s (and others) clothes – all worn on-screen during the series. Currently available are the black jacket, shirt and pants she wore (pictured above) during the first season finale, “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” (click here for information and photos). Also available are Sarah’s black wool coat and leather boots (click here) worn on-screen during the series finale, “To Right the Wrongs of Many.” Don’t miss a chance to claim a piece of Orphan Black while you can – click here to see all of the Orphan Black wardrobe items and props currently available!

 

CAPTURING COSIMA

Cosima Niehaus (played by Tatiana Maslany, of course) is one of the most popular clones in the Orphan Black “sestrahood.” She’s brilliant, loyal and cool – the kind of clone anyone would want – and bears a striking resemblance to the show’s science consultant, Cosima Herter. “It’s a crazy thing!” Herter told Huffington Post Canada back in 2014 of being an inspiration for a TV character. “Well, Graeme [Manson, Orphan Black’s creator] and I have known each other for a long time. It started off as a conversation between friends, and then grew into more. It just so happened that the concept of the show mapped onto what I’m studying, which is evolutionary biology and cloning, and the history and philosophy of science.” VIP Fan Auctions is giving fans of Orphan Black an opportunity to own a signature piece of the on-screen Cosima by offering her trademark glasses (worn on-screen by her stand-in for multiple episodes) as well as Cosima’s long sweater, shirt and skirt worn on-screen by Maslany in the fifth-season episode “Gag or Throttle.” Click here to see all of the available Orphan Black wardrobe items, including more from Cosima’s closet!

 

‘BLACK’ OUT – FOR NOW

When Orphan Black signed off on Aug. 12 after five groundbreaking seasons that introduced the world to the amazing talents of Emmy-winner Tatiana Maslany, it left a 274-clone-sized hole in the television landscape. Much like the finale itself, however, the future is hopeful: Series co-creator John Fawcett told Deadline.com that the final episode may not be the end of the story. “We’ve talked since the beginning of wanting to do some kind of feature or some kind of two-hour continuation of the series,” Fawcett said. “At this point, I think we’re happy that it’s come to a conclusion that we feel satisfied with, and it closes this chapter. [Series co-creator] Graeme [Manson] and I are both going to let it sit for a little bit, but I know that these characters are so strong with us and so engrained with us, that there’s certainly a chance that we’ll pick that up and continue.” In the meantime, VIP Fan Auctions is offering a treasure trove of screen-used Orphan Black props and wardrobe from the BBC America phenomenon, including Sarah Manning’s mugshots and arrest records; Cosima’s studded-skull scarf (pictured above); Helena’s Joey Lama cowboy boots and much, much more.
