By  |  6 Comments

We are all going to miss our favorite vampire TV series when it ends on August 24th. To ease the pain HBO and ScreenBid have come together to offer Truebies a chance to own their own piece of Bon Temps in an amazing auction to take place August 20 – 25. Check out the press release  which lists some items that will be available for bidding.

Press release

After seven extraordinary seasons, the award-winning HBO series True Blood will end its successful run on Sunday, August 24. To commemorate this occasion, leading Hollywood collectibles auction site ScreenBid will host an online auction of more than 1,500 props, set decoration items, wardrobe pieces and other memorabilia straight from the set of True Blood. Launching on Wednesday, August 20, the auction will run for five days and close on Monday, August 25, the night after the beloved series airs its final episode.

In this one-time online auction, True Blood‘s dedicated fans will be able to bid for a massive array of items from set, including the following:

  • Eric’s throne
  • The contract that Warlow makes to “own” Sookie
  • Arlene’s wedding gown
  • Vampire fangs
  • Cartons of True Blood
  • Items from the set of Merlotte’s and Fangtasia
  • Wardrobe pieces from several major characters from the series
  • Signed memorabilia
Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, True Blood takes place in a world where vampires and humans co-exist, after vampires have come out of the coffin, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source. The series follows waitress and part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people’s thoughts, vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and vampire Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård). Alan Ball (creator of the Emmy®-winning HBO series Six Feet Under®) created the show, which is executive produced by Brian Buckner and based on the bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.
Fans can preview the auction online now at www.screenbid.com. New items will be added to the site daily leading into the launch on August 20.

Over-night fan (almost literally) of the Sookie Stackhouse series since early 2008. Co-owner of True-Blood.net. Anxiously anticipating season 6.

    I must be having amnesia. When did Arlene wear a wedding dress?

    I would love Lorena’s lace dress from season 3, the one she wore in Russell’s mansion. I also liked her green satin dress from the flashback when she brought home a dancer for Bill, the 1930s? Gorgeous.

    Thats right. Dang, thats obscure. I kept trying to remember her wedding to Terry, and it just didnt come to mind. I’ve watched seasons 1-4 about ten times each, I just cannot get into 5 & 6, no matter how hard I try, I just hate them both. Its weird, b/c I didnt care for season 2 at first, but loved it the second time around. I even styled my kitchen colors after Maryann’s kitchen, yellow walls, creamy counter and backsplash. Too bad I dont have a K-K-K-Karl!

    Its a sickness, I know.

      Wished show would have given a farewell party here in Bon temps area. Only seems right to do a send off in Monroe or Shreveport. This northern Louisiana lady is sure sad see it end.
