Artemis Women in Action Film Festival Crowdfunding - XWP costumes and props!

Splendid news everyone!

Thanks to the Xena Forum user Carbonek I've found out this juicy information, and I've felt I had to share.

I quote what she says over there: "There is a Los Angeles-based film festival that honors women in action films that is currently crowdfunding their second year event. A local Xena fan has donated a number of prop and costume items to the campaign to help raise money for the film festival". 

The items are a set-used foam Xena battle-sword, a stunt of Gabrielle's iconic S3 costume (minus the belt), Alti's hero headpiece from S5 "Them Bones, Them Bones", Paleamon's hero vest from S2 "Blind Faith", a set-used foam snake sword used in S1's finale "Is There a Doctor in the House?", and a resin bone dagger sword used by many characters - among which we should highlight Marcus, Xena's male lover from S1.

These are the images present at the site, with additional info:

This is the website:

Items are not for auction, but instead are rewards for different funding goals. As Carbonic says: "Also, this is not an auction, which I think most fans are used to seeing, the items are offered at funding levels, so you will also get other perks from the festival along with the item".

So, you know: if you're interested in any of these items, know that you're also contributing to bring to live an amazing festival that honors women in action films. Cool!

Thanks for the heads-up, Carbonek!
