At an auction for “Battlestar Galactica” memorabilia, the famed red dress worn by Tricia Helfer’s cylon character (“Number Six”) sold for $23,000, making it the most expensive item purchased there. The high price was the result of a bidding war between two prospective buyers — presumably overweight white men with bad haircuts.
Second only to Six’s dress, Starbuck’s flight suit sold for $16,500 to an Internet bidder; meanwhile, the “Battlestar 75″ seal from the “Weapons Control” section of CIC sold for $16,000, significantly eclipsing its estimated sale price of $600-$800. Another item estimated to sell for less than $1,000, “Kara’s Bizarre Painting on Canvas,” went for $15,000.
Sounds like a pretty good way to spend $23,000. Sure, it’d be nice to have the metal bikini Princess Leia wore in Return of the Jedi, but this dress would feel way better wrapped around your penis.
Hey, remember when Tricia Helfer got naked in Playboy? Now THAT’S something I’d pay $23,000 to keep in my house, heh heh. P.S. I’m talking about Tricia, not the Playboy magazine. In case that wasn’t clear.
