Want to buy Battlestar Galactica costumes?

If you know me then you know that I am obsessed with the sci-fi show, Battlestar Galactica. I won't go on and on about why it's the greatest show that ever existed, but really, you have to watch it. The second half of Season 4 (the last season. Tear.) airs in January so you have plenty of time to buy the DVDs and catch up.
A while ago I posted about the costumes on the show, which are really cool. And now since the show has wrapped filming, NBC Universal is auctioning off more than 3,000 costumes, props and set pieces from the series. So if you ever wanted Starbuck's flight suit, you know, just to look at or to fondle, it can be yours!
NBC Universal and Propworx will conduct two live auctions in Los Angeles, along with a series of Internet auctions at , in tandem with the airing of the final episodes.
I will be bidding on Lee Adama's (actor Jamie Bamber) flight suit. You know he sweated in it.Mmmm. Lee Adama sweat.
Speaking of BSG, the Metro Toronto Convention Centre is hosting the Fan Expo Canada this weekend, with guests such as Edward Jame Olmos (Bill Adama) and Aaron Douglas (Chief) from the show. Jamie Bamber (Lee Adama) was supposed to make an appearance but he canceled last week which I'm pretty pissed off about as I wanted him to see my 'Adama for President' tee. Oh well. Eddie Olmos will have to do.

The people at Battlestar Galactica Props and Costumes snapped a few photos of the costumes that are going up for auction. (Photos: Propworx)

Athena's Viper Suit (Grace Park's sweat is also probably in this suit, for all you geeks out there)

i kind of like the vest parts of the costumes to be honest. i could see them being worn in the every day. it would likely take a lot of trying and mixing things to get the look right, but still, awesome.
