'Walter Mitty' Costumes and Props Are Up for Grabs
A selection of set items from Ben Stiller's international adventure flick are available via Gilt to support The Stiller Foundation.
While actor-director-producer Ben Stiller travels the world -- first in his character's mind and then in actuality -- in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, fashionable wanderlusters can now bring a piece of the big-screen globe-trotting adventure home.
Beginning Dec. 19, the seven-day sale offers the most meaningful items from the film based on James Thurber's 1939 short story: Mitty's passport, his briefcase (the rubber version to keep up with the adventure's action onscreen), and the inscribed leather wallet gifted from Sean Penn's daring character.
A few pieces of his travel gear are listed as well, including the hiking backpack he wears in the daydream shown in the trailer. The bag features faux snow and ice details on the exterior.
However, Mitty's bicycle -- a Globe model with a Brooks seat -- was intentionally damaged during filming and, like the passport, is purely a prop.
As far as wardrobe items, Stiller's Cego button-down shirt, Zara Man sweater, Oliver Peoples glasses and Ralph Lauren pants and hiking jacket, and Kristen Wiig's A.P.C. blouse are also available, along with signed movie posters.
A portion of the proceeds from the props will support The Stiller Foundation, which Stiller founded in 2010 to promote the well-being of children worldwide through initiatives that support education.
The sale is also sprinkled with other travel-inspired books, luggage items and home decor picks.
