The free market has assessed the value of the prosthetic hot dog hands that appeared in “Everything Everywhere All at Once” as $55,000 — or $5,500 per sausagey finger.
That price was determined in a weeklong auction that ended Thursday, in which the independent film studio A24 sold 43 lots of props and costumes from the movie. The reality- and genre-bending film, which is nominated for 11 Oscars, stars Michelle Yeoh as Evelyn Wang, a Chinese American immigrant and laundromat owner trying to save a dizzying multiverse from ruin.
Bidders claimed the Elvis costume worn by the stylish villain Jobu Tupaki (Stephanie Hsu) and the lip balm that Evelyn’s husband, Waymond (Ke Huy Quan), uses to zip between universes. Bidding peaked at $60,000for an suggestively shaped “auditor of the month” trophy that first appears on the desk of an I.R.S. bureaucrat (Jamie Lee Curtis) but winds up somewhere else altogether. The Wang family’s laundry-delivery R.V. sold for $11,000 to a buyer who should not expect to drive it anytime soon.
“This needs new transmission, engine, tires and serious T.L.C. on the interior,” the lot’s description warned. “The R.V. is currently not street legal.”
No memento proved more desirable than a raccoon puppet nicknamed Raccacoonie that, at $90,000,was the auction’s highest-selling item. The puppet figures in a recurring gag about Disney and Pixar’s “Ratatouille,” one of several eclectic cinematic references dotted throughout by the film’s directors, Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan.
Proceeds from the auction, which totaled $555,725, will be donated to three organizations: the Asian Mental Health Project, which aims to make mental health care more accessible in Asian American communities; the Transgender Law Center, which champions the rights and safety of transgender and gender-nonconforming people; and the Laundry Workers Center, which works to improve conditions for laundry, warehouse and food service workers. A24 declined to release the names of the winning bidders.
The Run-Up to the 2023 Oscars
The 95th Academy Awards will be presented on March 12 in Los Angeles.
Jason Kisvarday, the film’s production designer, said in an interview on Wednesday that he was surprised to see so many of the items going for thousands of dollars. “There’s usually not a lot of demand or interest in these types of things after the movie comes out,” he said.

PRIMARK fans are going crazy for its newest seamless sets… but they’re not for adults.
The fast fashion retailer’s latest ribbed set is for children and dubbed perfect for “your mini me”.
And while some parents are jumping at the chance to match with their tots, other shoppers have a different idea in mind.
The kids’ sets come in pink, blue, green and black.
They’re sized from XS to XL and some fashion fans are willing to chance their luck and squeeze into one because the sets are £6 – which is £2 cheaper than the adult versions.
The adult sets must be brought separately with the top and bottoms costing £4 each.

A BUSTY woman hunted for the best of the best in big-boob swimwear.
The size 34DD TikToker has shared the winner of all 50 bikinis she tried, and it’s from Amazon.
Kate Phillips (@8kateee) took to her account to review big-boob-approved bikinis to find her favorite.
In her recent video, she revealed her winner of the swimsuit search.
From Target to Hollister, Kate tried several brands before she decided on the top contender.
“I tried 50 bikinis for big boobs, and this is my favorite,” she said as she displayed a picture of the champion.
Kate stood in front of her bedroom mirror in an olive green two-piece.
Rather than the typical cheeky bottoms bikinis tend to come with, the $27.99 Sweaty Rocks Women’s Zebra Striped Bikini had a swim skirt.
“Bikinis that come with a matching skirt are everything,” Kate proclaimed.
And this option not only came with a tube skirt but regular high-cut bottoms as well.
