My favorite is a new column we just started that is meant for everyone to talk about some of their favorite collector’s pieces.
This is a great chance for the MTF writers and all of you guys, to tell the story of how you acquired your favorite piece, got something signed, found at a random yard sale, etc…
Seriously, I know there are a lot of great stories out there. I can’t wait to share them and hear them. So please send them in to mike at mikethefanboy.com!
Now, this is literally one of my favorite things I own. It’s the original hero costume Courteney Cox wore in Scream 2. It’s from the scene where Gail Weathers first makes her appearance doing the press conference.
The Scream movies hold a special place in my heart, they are so fun to watch and I think it’s the writing and acting that made me fall in love with them.
I ended up with the outfit in an odd way. I won it on an auction, where it went for so little I still can’t believe it. So little in fact that the company didn’t want to give it to me, and instead pretended they lost it.
There was a claim involved, a my money got refunded and then the package showed up on my doorstep. I know!
Anyway, so I decided I really wanted Courteney Cox to sign her costume from Scream 2 and so I brought the top with me. Yes, here I am with a woman’s top and a silver sharpie. How did this get to be my life? LOL… Oh, I chose it. Ah, that’s right.
My friend and I waited and waited for Courteney Cox to leave. She was taping a talk show and I believe she was promoting Dirt at this point. It was before Cougar Town but after Friends.
Anyway, we waited and waited. Security came over and asked us if we were waiting for Courteney. We said yes and he said he would ask her if she would come over. Then he asked what we had for her to sign. I said, “Her costume from Scream 2.” The security looked at me and said, “Okay…” lol… Only me…
Courteney Cox came out and we were waved over. Courteney Cox was so sweet, she remarked about the costume and was happy to sign it.
She even commented about how cool it was that I had it and how sick she was of signing 8 x 10 photos.
Courteney was happy to pose for a photo as well and was very sweet.
This is why Monica is my favorite friend!
