Fury Auction

Avatar By on November 24th 2015 November 24th 2015

As we stand a mere week from the start of the FURY Prop & Costume Auction, we’re giving collectors and fans a closer look at some of the material that will be featured via a three part blog series all about FURY. In our first instalment, we’re going to be taking a closer look at some of the costumes featured in the auction. The auction features over 300 lots of costumes ranging from US military uniforms to German military uniforms to civilian clothing.

One of the great things about the costumes from all war films is the escalating degree of distressing featured in the costume as the fighting gets heavier.  The unique rips, tears, stains and wounds all allow the collector to distinctly identify the portion of the film that their costume was used in. The costumes from FURY are certainly no exception.  As an example, let’s take a look at the changes between these Don “Wardaddy” Collier (Brad Pitt) tanker uniforms from various points in the film.

To start, let’s take a look at lot 538, Don ‘Wardaddy’ Collier’s (Brad Pitt) Tank Commander Uniform:

Obviously made for use in the early, pre-battle scenes of the film, the costume features no distressing.  Notice in particular the lack of distressing in the close up on the left shoulder and patches. This non-distressed style of costume does not last long though, check out lot 291, Don ‘Wardaddy’ Collier’s (Brad Pitt)  Hero Bandaged Jacket.

The transformation from the clean costume seen in early in the film to striking as the costume now features blood stains, dirt and of course the once clean set of patches on the left shoulder now feature detailed wound bandaging, blood and even a tear in the fabric to simulate shrapnel ripping the jacket.  Finally, we come to lot 453, Don ‘Wardaddy’ Collier’s (Brad Pitt) Double Death Jacket.

Appropriately distressed for Wardaddy’s death scene, this costume alone is enough to tell the story of the brutal fighting that the crew of the FURY experienced.  In fact, looking at these three different stages of Pitt’s wardrobe encapsulates the film in and of themselves.

Another quality of these costumes that makes them awesome for collectors is the vast array of accessories that accompany them. Whether it be helmets, hats, supply packs, sidearms or dog tags, many of the costumes featured in the auction are accompanied by accessories that add to the authentic feel of the costumes.

Take, for example, lot 189, Pvt. Norman “Machine” Ellison’s (Logan Lerman) Army Uniform. What may have been a run of the mill US WWII soldier costume is elevated by The personalized dog tags and supply sack make the costume feel more like it belonged to an actual character.
