THE PIRATE KING

Blackbeard didn’t just sail the high seas, he commanded them. As big and burly in person as in reputation, Edward “Blackbeard” Teach was as brilliant as he was fierce. The mere mention of his name struck fear in the hearts of honest men and pirates alike. In the epic Starz series Black Sails, Blackbeard (played by Ray Stevenson) valued strength above all else, and whether it was with cannons, fists, pistols or knives, Blackbeard loved the battle. Fans of Black Sails now have an opportunity to claim a piece of Blackbeard’s legend – VIP Fan Auctions is offering the dagger he used on-screen in the series. Silver with a gray handle, the prop 11-inch blade Blackbeard kept tucked in his belt (pictured above) is designed to look authentic and will soon be in the treasure chest of the fan who casts the winning bid.

A PIRATE’S LIFE

Black Sails remains the most addictive and intense high-seas tale ever to plunder television. The Starz series is also responsible for bringing a new generation of readers to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel Treasure Island simply for a glimpse into the future of Black Sails stalwarts like Long John Silver and Billy Bones – two key figures in the pirate rebellion. VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans of Black Sails a chance to claim a piece of the groundbreaking series by offering daggers wielded on-screen by several pirate legends – including the dagger of Captain Flint (Toby Stephens), a blade used on-screen by Charles Vane (Zach McGowan), a weapon of choice that belonged to the cut-throat Anne Bonny (Clara Paget), Blackbeard’s (Ray Stevenson) deadly steel and a gold-handled knife used by Jack Rackham (Toby Schmitz).

STARK CONTRAST

Michelle Fairley knows strong women with royal blood. From her roles as Catelyn Stark in Game of Thrones to Margaret Beaufort in The White Princess – the former a noble hero, the latter a Medieval version of a stage mother – both intent on seeing their respective sons on the throne. For her role in The White Princess, costume designer Phoebe De Gaye kept Fairley laced-up tight, a fashion metaphor for her character, and now one of her most distinctive outfits is now available to the fan who places the winning bid. The purple-and-maroon outfit includes the Queen Mum’s dress, sleeves and hat (pictured above) worn in multiple episodes of The White Princess.

CHOPPING BLOCK

When the executioner’s axe falls in the finale of the White Princess, it changes the course of history and how Lizzie will forever be viewed. It’s a startling, shocking plot twist in the episode aptly titled “Old Curses” – and paved the historical way for her sadistic son, Henry VIII, to adopt a vicious habit of beheading his wives. Without venturing into the spoiler-alert arena, VIP Fan Auctions is offering the infamous executioner’s axe (pictured above) featured on-screen in The White Princess in both the finale ad the episode “English Blood on English Soil” (click here for photos and more information). It’s a grim yet pivotal prop from the epic story – and it can be yours if you cast the winning bid today. But don’t lose your head – the axe is falling on this auction soon – so click here and act quickly!

 

DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES

The White Princess miniseries on Starz brings viewers back to the sights, sounds and intrigue of a divided 15th century England, during which brutal battles for the throne were waged between the rival royal houses of York (symbolized by a white rose) and Lancaster (symbolized by a red rose). When the forces of Henry Tudor ultimately defeated the Yorks to claim the throne and unite the country, a new symbol of a burgundy rose enveloping a white rose was born to symbolize the union. VIP Fan Auctions is offering a Tudor white/burgundy rose flag (pictured above, behind the throne) and dragon flag featured on-screen in The White Princess. Each banner is more than two-feet wide and nine-feet long – click here for photos and more information. Also available is a set of six green glass goblets featured on-screen in The White Princess (click here for photos and more information).

THE EMPORER’S NEW CLOTHES

When Henry Tudor’s troops defeated the army of King Richard III, the last Yorkist king, at the Battle of Bosworth Field, he ended the War of the Roses and took his place as King Henry VII. His marriage to Elizabeth of York united England and gave rise to The White Princess – a remarkable miniseries period piece on Starz. VIP Fan Auctions is offering Henry’s (played by Jacob Collins-Levy) royal outfit worn on-screen in multiple episodes of The White Princess. The wardrobe includes the king’s custom-made black robe, pants and jacket, as well as his leather boots.

CUSTOM FIT FOR A QUEEN

The dazzling wardrobe of The White Princess is as distinctive as the characters themselves. “One lovely thing about the project was that those three women are all so dramatically, clearly designed against each other, and they’re each very strong characters in their own right,” costume designer Phoebe De Gaye told Town & Country magazine. “So it was a matter of trying to define that and really bring that out in contrasting the colors and styles.” De Gaye pointed out her strategy for designing costumes for Elizabeth of York (played by Jodie Comer) was to exploit her voluptuousness – and VIP Fan Auctions is now offering several of “Lizzie’s” most amazing screen-worn pieces. Currently available is Lizzie’s ornate, custom-made overdress and lace-up shoes worn during the Starz miniseries (click here for photos and more information). Also available is a green-and-gold custom-made dress worn by Lizzie (pictured above, click here for photos and more information). Don’t miss your chance to own a bone-fide period piece costume created by one of Hollywood’s hottest designers.

AXE MAN

Battle is brutal, and the tools of combat wielded during the War of the Roses were built for maximum hand-to-hand destruction. VIP Fan Auctions is offering a set of weapons and a shield used in the service of King Henry – and on screen – during The White Princess. The battle-tested shield (pictured above) features the red lion emblem of King Henry’s troops, as well as a club and axe. These props have been carefully designed for maximum authenticity and to keep actors from being harmed during production.

THE WITCH & THE WARDROBE

The White Princess costume designer Phoebe De Gaye is no newcomer to show business, but the wardrobe she designed for the Starz miniseries has captured the attention of Hollywood. To capture the look and feel of the period of upheaval in English history, De Gaye says she studied paintings of the period and found them well-suited for a high-definition world. “You really need a lot of texture with HD images,” she told Variety. “If you don’t have that, it all fades away on-screen,” she says. And no design was created without reason. For instance, De Gaye points out to the publication how Lizzie “starts off as a girl and gradually becomes more and more encrusted and stiff by the end of the series. The witch – Elizabeth – wore blue colors; she’s associated with water. The color palettes were quite defining.” VIP Fan Auctions is now offering a piece of the witch’s wardrobe – a custom-designed, blue and gold robe was worn on-screen by Essie Davis as Elizabeth Woodville in the series, which is now available to The White Princess fan who casts the winning bid.
