    Unlimited Run Blade Runner HYPOTHETICAL Deckard Badge

    Hi Gordon, I have sent a payment for 1 Deckard badge. This is my second order--I received the previous one and it's pretty cool. Thanks!

    Tomenosuke get worldwide Blaster rights

    Does HCG require an initial email request to provide the accurate grips, or should one assume they will eventually send grips to whomever purchased blasters with rounded ones? Thanks!

    Tomenosuke get worldwide Blaster rights

    On my grips, I think the rounding is a bit less than that previously pictured, but still there. The impression I get, purely speculative, is that that perhaps someone with a bench-mounted buffing machine was told to polish the grips but ended up polishing some sharp corners round that ought to...

    I also have the problem with the lever not raising all the way and not being able to attempt to slide it back. Further, trying to raise it damages the piece by scraping the finish and baring metal on the receiver and lever. Therefore, I did not attempt to force it for fear of damaging the...

    Unlimited Run Blade Runner K 2049 Badges

    Re: Blade Runner 2049 Badges Hi Gordon, I have sent a payment of $36 for a K style detective badge with a blank legend, including the $5 surcharge for customization. Thank you! Edit: I have received it and it looks good. I hope you continue making your various badge styles, as I might like to...

    Blade Runner 2049 Baseline Test

    I wonder whether what looks like a white light on the lower left might possibly be a memory sphere. Are memory spheres deprecated in 2049, only used for archives? Or are they still used for certain applications as a recording medium?

    Ryan Gosling 'K' - Blade Runner 2049!

    Looking more closely at this scene, I was surprised to find that the goon coats might be in the style Baracuta G10 Modern Classic - Barapel (not the waxed one). Having the oilskin G10 on hand, I instantly noticed the pocket detail of this jacket on the right-hand goon (picture blows up to 6000...

    The addition of the sherpa here is excellent. Did you use the Alibaba sherpa cloth mentioned earlier in the thread? For boots, I got the usual 8" "Strike" ones from Amazon. I wasn't totally impressed with them, as it looks like the only leather part is the toe piece. I was using some Huberd's...

    Ryan Gosling 'K' - Blade Runner 2049!

    For those doing a K style stealth costume (one with plausible deniability), I can recommend Baracuta oilskin outerwear in forest green. I ordered a G10 winter coat on sale as an impulse purchase, and was determined to return it once I received it after much recrimination. However, the weight...

    For the sweater in the picture with the holster, please compare the Belstaff "Hurtstone" jumper. It's not that exact one, but it may be a similar Belstaff sweater from a previous collection. A clue for this would be that Denis Villeneuve looks to be wearing a Belstaff sweater in the Wired...

    Ryan Gosling 'K' - Blade Runner 2049!

    I received the Tough Gloves lined version and they are quite thin, like driving gloves, laying somewhat flatter than the picture with the gloves on the table. I like them and will exchange them for a size down (I am a half-size by measurement). They are fine gloves and will do for me now, yet...

    Ryan Gosling 'K' - Blade Runner 2049!

    Those gloves seem not to have a seam on the outer (thumbward?) side of the index finger--as in Augh's image with the cigarette tin. A similar pair of Gaspar gloves on Amazon seems to confirm that these have no index finger seam. We may be dealing with two pairs of gloves: 1. a "hero" version...

    Ryan Gosling 'K' - Blade Runner 2049!

    I've cropped the gloves here because you'd have to open the full 6000 px wide image to see the seam with the other one (not just expand it). I agree that they are likely leather, though perhaps not meant to be lore-wise. I've also seen some other makers with virtually identical styles, too, so I...

    But wait! This (large) picture of K and Sapper appears to show an index finger seam. Therefore, I think they might have CGI'd it out for the close-up. Do you also note the seam here?

    Ryan Gosling 'K' - Blade Runner 2049!

    Good catch. I did order the Tough Gloves ones. Then I started wondering whether they would CGI a seam away for an important shot. But I did see that style on a WiseGeek article about what patrolmen do: So this style of patrolman's duty glove is out there, just not easy to find in the first...
