Debbie Reynolds has spent her entire life in the Hollywood film industry. She’s therefore amassed decades worth of memorabilia, which she’s now auctioning off in a fit of spring cleaning. There are hundreds of items up for auction, and they really run the full gamut from “Who the holy hell would want that?” to “WHO IS GOING TO LOAN ME $20,000 RIGHT NOW??” For example, if you’ve ever thought to yourself, “I wish I had a pair of pants that Téa Leoni wore in Jurassic Park 3,” you’re in luck. This is your one-stop shopping center. Here are the absolute craziest things you can buy in Debbie Reynolds’ movie memorabilia auction.

A bunch of stuff signed by Carrie Fisher
Do we think Debbie just shipped a bunch of stuff to her daughter for her to sign for the auction? Yes, we do. $200 - 400

Pictures of Mel Gibson
In “pre-film sexy beefcake poses.” Because why not? $200 - 300

Pictures of random sexy dudes
This is where I start to get the feeling that Reynolds is just cleaning out her attic. $200 - $300

Charlie Chaplin’s ACTUAL BOWLER
This is where the auction suddenly steps up its game. $20,000 - 30,000

Harpo’s hat!
And wig! This was a personal gift from Harpo to Debbie. $20,000 - 30,000

Scarlett O’Hara’s many hats.
Continuing with Debbie’s massive hat collection. She apparently owns every hat worn in Gone With the Wind.

A whole bunch of Mae West’s nightgowns
Do you want to pay $800 - 1,200 for 15 of Mae West’s nightgowns? What if they throw in a pair of shoes? Cool.

A random Jason Biggs costume from American Pie 2
Huh? $200 - 400

Tom Hanks’ costume from Forrest Gump
Not that iconic suit, though. No, his shrimp boat captain outfit. As in, a dirty tank top and some socks. $800 - $1200

Billy Zane’s vest from Titanic
Who has $200 to split Billy Zane’s vest with me? $400 - 600

A weird Marilyn Monroe mannequin
I don’t fully understand what this piece is. It’s a mannequin made for the Seven Year Itch dress, and supposedly cost $8000 to make, which I think indicates it was made from a cast of Monroe’s body. But this does NOT include the famous dress. It’s just a weird transparent model in an awkward pose. $1,000 - 2,000

Finally, the really f*cking awesome piece I could never afford, and if I could this isn’t what I’d choose to spend that money on: Orson Welles’ fur coat from Citizen Kane
$40,000 - 60,000. Awesome.

Vivian Kane is currently accepting offers to split custody of Billy Zane’s vest.
