Emilie Autumn's Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls is offering the ultimate Christmas gift for collectors of all things EA and The Asylum!

Presenting The Auction Of:

THE RAT MASK!!!!!
Worn by Emilie Autumn in all live concerts from 2008 to 2012

Note from EA:

"Dearest Plague Rats, I could never have imagined parting with this, the one and only RAT MASK. I intended to keep it in my Asylum costume archives forever and ever. And yet, at the close of 2012, after so many incredibly thrilling, exciting, magical tours around the world, we are entering into a new age together -- you, the Plague Rats, the Crumpets, me, and the entire Asylum. It's time for new creatures, new characters, new masks, and beautiful new costumes.

I made the RAT MASK with my own two hands and some very surprising materials (should it be yours, you will finally see exactly how I did it!). I filled it with magic and mystery, the symbolism of the plague rat, the plague doctor, and the Asylum prison gate itself, and that murky and terrifying dream world where they all meet and become the very same."

This object that has traveled with me from obscurity into your minds, that has covered my eyes, shielding me from looking too quickly into yours and being blinded by their light when I first take the stage each night, and, yes, that has been responsible for my bumping into way too many walls and falling off a backstage rafter or two, is the most famous and most significant symbol of the entire Asylum show to this point.

But it is YOU who took the pictures, shared the stories, posted passionately on YouTube, shared and believed in this reality.

And, therefore, I can think of no nobler head to hold up this iconic symbol than...YOURS:)!

-- EA"

"P.S.

Once you put this thing on, you are going to realize just how much I CANNOT SEE during "4 O'Clock"..."

Excuse me while I sob into a curtain because I am too broke to bid.
Kudos to whoever wins the auction though!

I must say that for the sake of all the Rats who haven't got enough buttons hidden away in their tiny rat coffers, the lucky winner of the mask must post pictures and a video review for our delight. Only then, I think, can we raise our tea to them!

Good luck, though, to you who can bid. It's a nice prize!

I feel sad that Emilie is selling it when it has been a part of the show for so long, but it probably is a sign of a new stage show to come. Good luck to those who bid.

I feel like the only person who isn't sad about her selling the Rat Mask. Sure it was an awesome addition to her stage outfits and I loved seeing her wear it but I don't really care (for lack of a better word) that we won't see it again. I don't really know why. I only really react to costume changes if it's something new, not if something old goes. It's a shame to see it go but at least we'll be seeing some new ideas. :)

I wonder what the winning amount will be. Already over $1000.

i'm sad to see it go because it's the last time we will see it on tour. i see it as her identifiable, symbolic, & iconic costume. the plague rat outfit is my favourite look for her. now i suppose the look defines an era or a point in time.

looking forward, the large bidding is good. it can help translate into new costumes and more freedom for other creative outputs, if she wishes. and, hopefully the winner will give it a good home. a true muffin who can afford it deserves it. :)

I bet the one who wins this battle, is the same amazing PR who won her rare CD "violin". If she's bidding, I know she will win it.

I was like, in shock, when I saw it already hit $1,050 only after 7 hours of being placed on auction.

How exciting! I'll miss the mask but whoever gets it is going to be one happy plague rat.

The winner may very well be a non forum member.

^ That is what I am as afraid of actually. Because when the striped dress was auctioned off the winner was a forum member and we all got to see a pretty detailed review of it if I remember correctly since I was just lurking back then. I am kind of scared, for lack of a better term, that the winner won't be a forum member and we won't see anything of the lovely rat mask ever again. So while I know I won't be able to ever afford this, I really hope someone from here is able to win it, if only for the somewhat selfish reason of wanting to see a review of it.

Well, if I win it, I'll take lots of photos for you guys. (I'm currently the highest bidder). If I get outbid, I doubt I'll bid again, cause this is quite a bit of money haha.

Edit: Nevermind. I got outbid at over $1500! Crazy high.
