    A question about The Shadow's hat...

    Glad you replied, anyway, though. I'm still very interested in doing this, so if there are any new avenues to take, I'd be glad you hear about them.

    Want to Buy UD Replicas X-Men uniform suit...

    I know they've been out of production for a while, but I am hoping against hope, here, that someone has one they'd be willing to part with. I'm kind of in between Medium and Large sizes. I've seen some of the other suits listed on ebay and I'm leery of the quality (let's face it, some of them...

    Soldier (Kurt Russell 1998) - Props?

    Oh, okay. :D It is a good screencap. How about the bayonettes... anyone know if the blades were custom-made or was it an existing knife that was used? It looks like something I've seen before, somewhere, but I can't place it. I may have seen a knife blade like that at the BudK website or...

    Soldier (Kurt Russell 1998) - Props?

    I hyperlinked that one from the IMFDB Page. Did you post it there? If so, I apologize... didn't mean to step on your toes or anything.

    Soldier (Kurt Russell 1998) - Props?

    It is, indeed, sir. The article at IMFDB said it was, so I checked the C-MORE site to confirm it. Sure 'nuff, it is. You can even see their embossed logo in this picture. Going by the C-MORE's description on their web site, it looks like either the Railway or Tactical series was used, as...

    Soldier (Kurt Russell 1998) - Props?

    Thanks for the help, guys! I didn't even know the rifle was a bullpup until just now! :D Going by what I've been reading on the IMFDB page, it looks like both standard AK mags and one hundred round drum mags were used. I'm SERIOUSLY considering building one of these and I'll keep you all...

    Soldier (Kurt Russell 1998) - Props?

    My apologies for resurrecting an old thread. I didn't want to start another one only to be redirected to this one sometime later. Plus, this one seemed to have died off without any updates. I just got through watching Soldier (it's been on the Encore channels a lot lately) and I'm really...

    A question about The Shadow's hat...

    Thanks, Darth Mule! The approximate $100 mark is exactly the price range I was looking for. Not too much, but not too little either, especially for custom work! I'll head over there right now. :D I wonder, does he wear a cape or is it a large trench coat?

    A question about The Shadow's hat...

    The more I look at it, the more I believe it was a custom job, throwing any hopes of having a replica made on the less expensive side out the window. I've found a few hats that look like they might work with a little modification. Most notably the Tilley style hat like this one. Then I...

    A question about The Shadow's hat...

    Zeppo, ya look great, sir! May I ask how you did reshaped that hat?

    A question about The Shadow's hat...

    Indeed. I've found a few hats I could possibly modify to get the look, but they just don't look right. From what I can tell, it looks like a customized Fedora.

    A question about The Shadow's hat...

    So I've been thinking about a new costume and I just saw The Shadow on TV. Everything else I can find one way or the other, but the hat... I've not seen anything like it so far. It looks like a black Fedora but with a very large brim. Has anyone made a replica? Are there any hat makers who can...

    Fiberglass resin over sculpey? Would it make a strong enough form?

    Re: Fiberglass resin over sculpey? Don't you have to put fiberglass resin under heat and vacuum? Or does it depend on the type? I had to take a composites class as part of my Airframe qualifications (almost done!) and all the fiberglass resin we worked with had to be put under heat and...

    The Good, the bad, and the Ugly on a budget?

    I gotta say, whichever board member it was had the right idea. The original poncho was an OD Green kinda color and an Army blanket would be perfect for it. There's a couple of websites that sell great replicas, but they are pricey. The best poncho (i.e. screen-accurate color and design) is...

    A.I. Teddy Bear ?

    It wasn't well received by me, either... great movie nonetheless. I think one of my favorite characters was Giggolo Joe. As soon as I saw Teddy, I remember thinking "I have GOT to get me one of those." Hopefully someone will do a run or post one of the stuffed Teddys for sale. :D
