Ephiny Double Bra

This is an Awesome piece of Ephiny History!!! I was lucky enough to be able to get this piece from a friend in NZ!! I LOVE this piece and wish I had the full costume. This is the Ephiny Double Bra worn by Alex. This has really nice detail and is one of my favorite pieces plus it is the only thing I have that is linked to Ephiny/Danielle. This bra was used in Xena Season 3 episode "Maternal Instincts" and "The Bitter Suite". It was also used in Hercules Season 4 episode "Prodigal Sister". Too Cool!!!

Satyr's Horns

My Very Good Friend Morgan gave me these 2 Beautiful pair of Satyr Horns as a Gift. I am just so Blessed to have such loving friends. Ellie had put these up for auctions a few times and I really wanted to get them but just couldn't at the time so with Ellie's help Morgan cooked up this Great Surprise for me. Many Many Hugs to you Morgan for such a wonderful present!!!

I have spotted these horns being used in Hercules season 3 episode "Green Eyed Monster" worn by Cupid's gang of Satyr's and I have added a few screen shots of it and I also spotted them being worn by another Satyr in the Young Hercules episode "The Treasure of Zeus" When Herc and Iolaus come into the local tavern. One of the sets is of a damaged horn but I couldn't find that exact one. It might be in another YH episode or a totally different episode. Again Many Thanks to you Morgan. I am smiling from Ear to Ear!!! :-)

Beautiful Peasant Bodice

Here is a very used but beautiful peasant bodice. I have found this garment is three different episodes and 2 of them have My Bruce in them which is just Fantastic. He actually touches it in the Hercules episode but here is the list so far that I have spotted it in...Xena Season 3 episode "King of Assassins" worn by a peasant woman who gets goosed by Joxer but only because Autolycus makes him do it. LOL. Hercules Season 2 episode "Outcast" worn by Lyla's (Lucy) sister Leuriphone and also in Hercules Season 5 episode "Just Passing Through" worn by one of the peasant girls who is fawning over Autolycus in one of the ending scenes. Simply Awesome!!!

Burlap Sack

This is a Burlap Sack. It is a nice piece that was probably used as either a back pack that carried supplies or something on a horse drawn carriage. It still smells like it has been around horses or livestock. It is quite large as you can see with the cd that I used for size comparison. It is made up of Burlap material and has 3 metal hinges which hold the thick braided rope in place. I have yet to spot it in an episode but I am sure I will.

Leather Dagger Sheath

Here is a Leather Dagger Sheath. It has a beautiful design. It is made of all leather with the center piece looking like grey aligator skin and metal studs all around the sheath in a set pattern. I have not spotted this in an episode yet but I know I will.

Bacchae Top

This is a nice piece. It is the costume top of the Bacchae that are in Xena Season 1 episode "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun". It is definitely from Xena as I have checked out all the Young Hercules episodes which the Bacchae were seen in that series but had totally different costumes. There are no laces that came with it and there doesn't seem to be a piece that would hold the two neck collars together either but it looks like there was something there at one point. It is made of thick leather around the collar and a softer leather all around the bodice. Very Nice Piece!!

Gold Gauntlets

Here is a pair of gold colored gauntlets. I do not know what they are made of but they are flexiable. The boarded ends are of a thicker material but still flexiable. On the inside there are two strips of thin soft leather right where the laces are.These are very well made and sturdy. I spotted these in Xena Season 5 ep "Livia" on one of the Roman party/colosseum attendees. He is standing behind Xena on the right side of the one screen cap and in the other you can see the gauntlet on the far right where he is holding out his arm.

King Lias Crown

Here is a Wonderful and Rare prop from Xena Season 1 ep"Warrior...Princess". This Crown was worn by King Lias as you can see in one of the pictures with the costume label attached to the Crown by the wardrobe department (they did mislabel it though as it should be episode 15 Not 16) and I believe this crown to also be an FX Prop but not 100% sure on that. This is the bottom half of the crown that was cut off by Princess Diana when she threw Xena's Chakram. There are 3 cut out spots along the rim of the crown (shown in one of my pics) where it looks like they attached whatever it was to make the sparks so that it looked like the Chakram hit it and cut it off. The crown is made of a fairly heavy hard resin and painted gold. This really is a nice prop and I'm so glad to own it. Enjoy!!

Round Soft Leather Neck Garment

This was given to me as a gift from my good friend Morgan. Beautifully crafted...this red, green, brown and black colored soft leather neck piece has a criss crossed pattern that I have seen on many wardrobe pieces throughout both the Xena and Hercules series. It has round brass type metal coin pieces that have a hole in the center of them and are tied onto the necklace with a piece of brown leather strap that make it look like tassles. There are two holes at either end so that it could be tied around the neck and held in place. I have not yet spotted it in an episode so if you have seen it could you let me know where to look. Thanks!!

Gabby's Go-Go Strand

This is an Awesome piece I aquired from my good friend Morgan. Morgan had set up this piece in a beautiful display box which she included when I bought it from her. The box consists of a Picture of Gabby wearing the Go-Go outfit in Xena Season 5 ep "Lyre, Lyre Hearts On Fire" a strand of gold sequins and clear beads that were a part of her outfit and wardrobe notes from the wardrobe department. The red fabric that is behind it is part of the extra material used on Gabrielle's costume during the 6th season. This is a very COOL box and it goes very nicely with my Gabrielle display area of my Treasure Room. Hope you enjoy it. I also added a screen shot from the episode that I took myself. SWEET!!! Many thanks Morgan!!!

Renee/Gabrielle Season 2 Skirt

This is one of my most treasured pieces. It is a Renee O'Connor Skirt worn in Xena Season 2. This screen shot is from "A Comedy Of Eros". I love the shot of Xena getting hit with Baby Bliss's Arrow!! I bought this skirt from a very close friend who had it authenticated by one of the wardrobe people so this is the real deal!!!! There is a piece of tape on the inside of the skirt that reads Renee. It seems to be made of soft but rough cotton tweet type material. Feels very light and comfortable so it can breath. I'm sure Renee didn't get hot in this skirt. I love this piece but I need the Green Top, Belt and Boots to make it complete. My good friend also made me a Gabby Staff so I just had to include it in the picture with this outfit. Thanks Barbie!!! Hope you all enjoy looking at it!!!

Rafe's Boot Toppers

Here are two nice pieces I got from a friend and fellow collector. They are Patrick Fabian's boot toppers from his character Rafe's costume in Xena episode "King Con". They are made of real leather with leather laces around the edge and also to tie them with. There is a tag on the inside that reads RAFE. I not only loved Patrick's character but he is also a HOTTIE!!! I am really happy to own these!!!

Beautiful Green Sash

Here is a lovely green sash that was worn on Xena. It is made of thick soft cotton like material. It was spotted on the character Tarses in episode "Vanishing Act". There is a tag in the garment that reads Tarses Stuart Thorpe who was Jon Brazier's stuntman. Pretty Cool item!!!

Metal & Leather Armband/Helmet Wrap

Here is a really nice armband/helmet wrap made with metal and leather with holes at either end that they would use to tie this piece around the upper part of the arm or a helmet. It is quite heavy too. I have spotted it in Xena Season 2 ep "Warrior...Princess...Tramp" wrapped around one of the bad guys helmets, in Hercules Season 6 ep "Rebel Without A Cause" being worn by the Executioner and in the Young Hercules Series ep "Forgery" on a customer seated at a table in a club. So this piece shows it was used on all three show sets. Too Cool!!!
