EVER dream of getting into Megan Fox's shorts? It'll only cost you about $3000 (R22000).

How about sporting a pair of authentic Amelia Earhart goggles? Or wearing a white crystal glove worn by Michael Jackson? Or Michael Keaton's Batman costume?

They are among more than a thousand costumes, props, fine art photography and movie posters up for sale to fans and collectors today by Calabasas-based auction house Profiles in History.

There's also Elvis Presley's personal Martin D-28 guitar, used on stage in his final Las Vegas performance, Harrison Ford's bullwhip from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Charlton Heston's chariot racing helmet from Ben-Hur.

If you're looking for something more contemporary, how about Megan Fox's outfits from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen?

Included are Fox's jean shorts, and a pair of well-worn black stilettos that apparently were ill-fitting because they come with two pairs of foam inner soles.

"This auction has literally something for everybody," said auctioneer Joe Maddalena, whose Profiles in History has become one of the US's leading dealers of Hollywood memorabilia and historical documents.

Barely more than three months since Jackson's untimely death, the pop superstar's auction items - including costumes, fedora and platinum albums - are expected to be among the big attractions for buyers participating in person and on the Web.

The Jackson white glove is one of two gloves created for The Jacksons' Victory Tour in 1984 through 1986.

"He hired this (designer) named Ted Shell to make what he called a 'Suit of Lights' fully illuminating costume," said Maddalena. "When he'd go on stage, the whole thing lit up. This is the only illuminating glove.

"He would only wear this at big concerts, big venues. Michael Jackson gave this glove back to Shell in 1986 after the tour. He kept the other one and was buried with it."
