Collector's Call Web Extras: Sci-fi and horror movie costumes
Threads worn by Spider-Man, Robocop, Judge Dredd… and Bill & Ted!
As movie costume collector James Azrael puts it, “movies define us.” To him, movies serve as markers in time, tracking milestones in one’s life. But collecting costumes and props is about more than just the personal connection for James; it’s also a way of preserving history.
He considers himself the keeper of these iconic costumes for a moment in time, and he and his friend Brad have restored many of the items to their original condition.
James’ collection boasts identifiable costumes from films like Robocop, Little Shop of Horrors, The Terminator, Friday the 13th and countless more.
James and Brad are joined today by friend, appraiser and fellow movie costume collector Mark, who often helps James track down highly sought-after items. Mark has brought along an item in hopes of making a trade… but James has never traded or sold one of his costumes or props.
