Michael Jackson megafans, mark your calendars: items from the King of Pop’s costume collection are hitting the auction block in December. A sampling of Jackson’s famous fashions will tour the world this year, before selling at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills on Dec. 2.

Highlights — created by Jackson’s long-time costume designers Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush — include custom shirts, a gold lame belt with a Swarovski crystal buckle, a Bad tour leotard and a gold-and-silver jumpsuit and gloves the singer wore on his HIStory tour.

Also among the goods: a black stage jacket worn for Jackson’s 1993 Super Bowl appearance, his iconic right-hand crystal glove (top right), jackets seen in performances of “Beat It” and “Bad” (top left, bottom right) and his “gravity shoes” (bottom left). A Captain EO white spandex shirt and signed Naval officer’s hat are included, as well.

The collection tour kicks off this Friday, May 18, at the Museo de la Moda in Santiago, Chile, traveling to South America, Europe and Asia before arriving in Beverly Hills. Proceeds from the auction’s sales will benefit Guide Dogs of America and the Nathan Adelson Hospice in Las Vegas.
