Oceanic 815 water bottle

These water bottles were produced for the official LOST auction held in August 2010.  Although I wasn't there in person, I was online most of the weekend checking out pictures and videos and also participating in the auction itself.

LOST Final Season T-shirt

Although I wasn't there in person, this T-shirt was sold at the Sunset on the Beach screening of LOST's season 6 premiere in Oahu.

Lighthouse T-shirt

Ian, one of my LOST pals from across the pond, created an awesome graphic based on Jacob's lighthouse.  Along with the candidates that were revealed on the show, Ian added the names of dozens of LOST fans with whom he had interacted via his LOST website.  I was delighted to find myself listed as candidate 91!  Ian provides some additional background on the genesis of the design here.  Additional art for LOST, Dr. Who, Fringe, and others can be found on his personal website.

This was the shirt I was wearing when I landed in Oahu back in July 2011.  Good times!

DHARMA water bottle

Somewhere along the way I picked up this DHARMA-branded water bottle.  I'm not sure now if this was fan-made or came from the ABC store.

LOST Costume: Swan Station Patch

I was very excited to win a Swan Station patch at the Cancer Gets LOST auction.  It is an authentic patch made for the show (though not used on screen).  It was originally a gift from Roland Sanchez who served as costume designer on the show from season 2 onward.  Mr. Sanchez also worked on the late, great Alcatraz, and currently is part of the Revolution production team.

This type of patch was worn by both Desmond and Kelvin during their time saving the world.

And for those completists out there, this is what the back of an authentic Swan Station patch looks like!

Signed Juliet Burke Trading Card

And, because one can never have enough of a good thing, here is a LOST trading card featuring Juliet Burke, signed by Elizabeth Mitchell.  Once again this comes from the Cancer Gets LOST charity auction.

Again I chose this particular card because Juliet is wearing a shirt I purchased from the Official LOST Auction back in 2010.

Signed Henry Gale Trading Card

Another of my wins from the Cancer Gets LOST auction is this LOST Revelations trading card featuring Henry Gale, signed by Michael Emerson.

This particular card is of special interest to me because it features Gale wearing the olive shirt which is already a part of my LOST collection.

Signed Liz Mitchell Action Figure

Wow!  Hard to believe it has been more than six months since my last post.  The back half of 2012 was a busy time for me at a work, and I was a bit blogged-out after spending nearly a year cataloging my Comic-Con/Oahu adventure.  But now seems as good a time as any to dive back in!

Cancer Gets LOST is an organization formed by Jo (@jopinionated) and Jay (@agentbacardi) to raise money for the National Brain Tumor Society.  They put together a webcast (with an awesome array of guests), online auction, and a fundraising event in LA.  I didn't make it out to Cali this time around, but I did watch the webcast and bid on several auction items.

One of my auction wins is a Juliet action figure signed by Elizabeth Mitchell.

I love how Ms. M put a little asterisk beside her picture on the card -- very cute!  This is my third Juliet figure which I suppose means I now own 3% of the world supply!
