Event:
Melbourne's coolest and strangest garage sale ever


Everyone has to have a garage sale sometime. Even a film studio. And Wizard of Oz Studios are moving from their old FX studio to their new one.

As Wicked specialises in special effects, animatronic characters and sets for blockbusters including Star Wars Episodes 2 & 3, Charlotte's Web and The Bank Job, then you can expect it has been harbouring some strange items under its roof. And it now needs to off-load these.

So this will be Melbourne's coolest and strangest garage sale ever.

It will definitely be your chance to buy something quirky.

There are FX moulds from films (great for artists wanting to expand their library) from bodies, to animals, dead aliens and artefacts. There is even a full-size dugong and a huge manatee.

You'll find original props and film setting from Star Wars, Men in Black, Winchester and the Eddie Murphy from the Nutty Professor.



There are plenty of pullover silicone masks and film costumes as well as props, set dressings and film furniture. Fancy a haunted doll or a severed head?

If you happen to be making your own low budget movie you'll find body parts galore.

There is a full-size 1940's raft. It's fake but it floats.

Or if you happen to be creating an escape room there are all kinds of stuff used in horror and science fiction movies.

They even have three retro caravans for sale. So if you are looking for a new home you just found it. Or you could turn them into artist retreats. One of them even has a shower.

You will also find the following:



FX prop moulds ranging from silicone moulds, stone, and fibreglass including, soft weapon props and moulds, severed arm moulds, severed head moulds, human bone moulds, FX makeups, wound plates and costume moulds. Perfect for beginners or advanced makeup artists and prop builders. There are also:



Halloween decorations
Set dressings and furniture
Oddities and curiosities
Plenty of books especially horror and sci-fi
A massive selection of horror and sci-fi DVDs all at bargain prices.
Antiques
Art department props from various feature films.
