This is an update to the 2013 version of this same article.  As with that 2013 feature, this one is prompted by another Bonhams auction offering for a fertility idol attributed to use in Raiders of the Lost Ark , this one referencing back to one of their older auctions in 2005.  Due to public interest in discussing iconic props from the Indiana Jones films, and confusion in the marketplace with regards to the provenance and authentication of such pieces, I thought it appropriate to update my ongoing series of articles on the topic with the new information and photos (see: Raiders of the Lost Ark Fertility Idols In The Marketplace).

I published a story about the “Music from the Films of Tim Burton” concert event at Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live on Halloween on my other website, the Rock Subculture Journal, yesterday.  I’ve since received a number of messages about it from friends in the original prop collecting community, so I thought I would share a link to the article here for readers who might be interested in the feature.

One of the most fun things about Comic Con International in San Diego each year is checking out the costumes created and worn by many of the other attendees.  Some dress up for cosplay and others hope to win the annual Masquerade Party, but in any event it seems to get more and more impressive each year.  And then there are the funny costumes…  as well as the “photobombs” that have been know to occur (some of which can be found in the following photos).
