Joanna's screen worn AbFab costumes

Hi everyone!
I know some of you have been interested in getting hold of Joanna's actual wardrobe items worn in the series. A couple of years ago I bought quite a few items worn by the main cast, direct from the BBC (via their Comic Relief auction). They were each one of a kind items and came with a certificate of authenticity signed by Comic Relief. I am not a costume dealer, just a TV/ film fan who collects various costumes and props from shows (I also teach film). I have recently sold my Jennifer Saunders items to raise money for other things, and am now planning on selling the other items at pretty much what I paid for them. I have two of Joanna's costumes from very memorable scenes... I also have several 'Bubble' costumes too. If anyone is interested let me know!

Re: Joanna's screen worn Ab Fab costumes

Hi
The costumes are both from series 5.
The first is the glamorous red Ronik Zilkha jacket and trousers (with long silk belt) worn by Joanna in the episode Birthin'. In the episode she proudly displays the outfit before Saffy begins to go into labor, resulting in it getting rather wet...! You can actually still screen-match the water marks on the suit (the substance used by the prop/costume department was actually more gel-like in its consistency and can therefore still be seen when holding the costume up to the light).
The second Patsy outfit is her Booberella costume from Schmoozin'! This consists of her black zip-up pvc jumpsuit, along with her studded collar. Joanna is also featured wearing this on the cover of the series 5 DVD.
The pic below was taken by Comic Relief who have also featured a basque in the shot. The basque is not actually part of the Booberella costume.
Enjoy!

Re: Joanna's screen worn Ab Fab costumes

Ow wow, those are amazing collector's items! :squee: Just wondering... Didn't I contact you before? I remember seeing these pictures and some others on Ebay and I contacted the seller on the price and I also helped out on the episodes the outfits were from. :wink: I'm not entire sure though.

Hi Maartje, :wave:
Afraid it wasn't me you contacted :no: maybe it was Comic Relief when they first put these and various other Ab Fab costumes up for auction (although they didn't use Ebay, but another auction site called Marketplace09.com). I did briefly put the Booberella costume on Ebay, but never the 'Huki-Muki'! I believe some Ab Fab costumes were sold last year by Angels (film & tv costumers) when they were having a clear out - maybe it was some of these costumes you saw being sold on by the buyer?

Great items, what did you pay for them?
Yes I remember some similar ones on EBay last year, don't think they ever sold though.

Re: Joanna's screen worn Ab Fab costumes

Sorry about the long delay in getting back to you. A mixture of remembering to find the information for you, along with remembering where the info is kept!
I can now tell you that I paid £200 for the red outfit & £310 for the Boobarella costume (both direst from BBC Comic Relief).
I intend to offer these on Ebay for about £200 each, but if anyone is interested let me know and you can have first refusal.

Re: Joanna's screen worn Ab Fab costumes

She's auctioning off clothes again, some of Patsy's in fact! Clickety click.

I absolutely love the black/white polkadot top, but I have no doubt that these pieces will raise a lot of money. I'm keeping an eye on these though :wink:
