Re: Adam’s Collection! UPDATE: Harry Potter

Thanks sean! :D



That's too bad Gphalen, at least now you have Netflix and can catch up on all you missed out on!

I have a cheap & cheerful prop replica today - which I actually made! A bit.

Chocolate Frogs from Harry Potter!​

They're not quite 100% accurate to the screen-used ones, BUT they are 100% exact copies of the ones that were given away as a promotional thing for one of the premieres. Below are the premiere ones (not my picture obviously but if whoever's it is sees it & wants it removed hmu).


Not bad for £1.99 eh?


Love the frog!!! Where did you find them for that price? I need one to display for my box.

I made it from super sculpey. It's the first time I've ever used it too! The tablet's a tad thin but that's only because I couldn't wait for more sculpey to arrive 'cos I wanted to finish it! :D

Re: Adam’s Collection! UPDATE: Screen Used Warehouse 13 Artifacts

I'm back guys! Didya miss me?

Since I've been away from this thread for so very long, what better way to bring it back to life than with this, the Count of St Germain's ring from Warehouse 13.

tumblr_n3s6f5hzGH1s0s602o1_500.jpg


This isn't a replica - it's the one seen on screen in the show:

tumblr_n3s6f5hzGH1s0s602o10_r1_500.jpg

tumblr_n3s6f5hzGH1s0s602o6_500.jpg

So a few months ago back when SyFy first put the artifact database on their WH13 website one of the most interesting things was a close-up of the Count of St Germain's ring. In the episode it's kinda dark and hard to see and having a HQ pic of it made finding the same ring a very real possibility. So eventually after a few hours of searching I found a ring that was incredibly similar - same design & engraving etc. on etsy, ovbiously made by the same company that made the one for WH13. However the asking price was $1200. Just a bit too expensive for my liking! So I put the idea of wanting this ring to the back of my mind - at least I found the company that made it and if I ever won the lottery I could always get a replica made.

tumblr_ncrxvzKM551s0s602o1_500.jpg

Flash forward to February/March 2014, and the VIP Fan autions took place on ebay - now I missed the first couple of sets of listings because I didn't know about it, but as soon as I found out I headed over to ebay & one of the first listings I saw was for "James Marsters' Costume ring set" which included his poison ring with the big black jewel, as well as an unmistakeable gold & amethyst one.

tumblr_n2t50rv0Sf1s0s602o3_r1_500.jpg tumblr_n2t50rv0Sf1s0s602o5_500.jpg tumblr_n2t50rv0Sf1s0s602o1_250.jpg
The other poison ring from the listing.

OMG
it was my lucky day - there was no mention of the ring being a separate artifact (all the other artifact listings were about $200 higher from bids) and the listing didn't detail the importance of this ring - it saved the world! So basically to cut a long story short I bid on it and won it, I think the ring set cost between £100-200? BARGAIN considering the cost of a replica by the same company. And this is the real deal, not a replica!

Unfortunately vipfanauctions realised their mistake when they sent me my win - the box only contained the black ring. After emailing them to ask where the rest of the set was they responded saying the Count's ring was actually supposed to be listed separately as it's own item and whoever made the listing made a mistake. Uhhh not my problem? But they were very gracious and eventually sent me the count's ring free of charge. As well as some Robocop armour concept art for some reason?


tumblr_n3s6f5hzGH1s0s602o7_r1_500.jpg

tumblr_n3s6f5hzGH1s0s602o8_r1_1280.jpg

I couldn't resist


So in case you were ever wondering what happened to this ring or where it might be - I have it & it couldn't have a better home. I won some other artifacts too - so keep an eye out if you wanna see what else I got! :D

Re: Adam’s Collection! UPDATE: Screen Used Warehouse 13 Artifacts

*trips, falls & scatters beans everywhere*

One of the other sets I got from the auctions was an assortment of documents from 'Implosion'. The episode with the Honjo Masamune. The sword is on my list of 'things to buy when I have a spare £500' so this set is a good thing to help bide my time till then.

For anyone interested as well, the sword used in the show is the 'Paul Chen Shinto Katana'.

So ... ON TO THE PICS!
tumblr_n35wnpQW441s0s602o2_1280.jpg

Objective logs from the Warehouse archive. I'm not sure if these babies got any screen time, but they're hella cool nonetheless.

tumblr_n9juknbyMM1s0s602o2_1280.jpg tumblr_n9juknbyMM1s0s602o1_1280.jpg

Multiple copies of the yellow pages ad. & one with the extreme close-up post-its left on (it's surreal seeing the close up in the show and thinking "I own that!").

Photos from the archaeological dig where the Katana was found.

And my favourite piece from this set - the scroll Artie unfurls to teach Pete & Myka about the sword.
It's my goal to display this mounted on the wall, above a replica of the sword. One day.

Re: Adam’s Collection! UPDATE: Screen Used Warehouse 13 Artifacts

Cheers! They were kind of an accidental acquisition? I bid on them when I was at work on a tea break just on a whim . . . I thought I'd be outbid at the last second but nobody was interested haha

Re: Adam’s Collection! UPDATE: Screen Used Warehouse 13 Artifacts

Hmm, weird. No one must have known they were up for auction maybe. Are the Objective Logs blank inside, or was there info the Prop Dept. guys put in them? I don't remember seeing them in an episode.

Re: Adam’s Collection! UPDATE: Screen Used Warehouse 13 Artifacts

There were other bidders but the other bids stopped about 20 mins before the auction ended. I was still at work so I was glad I'd already set a maximum haha. They're just for show, probably set dressing. They're all filled with the same page over and over again, I've got no idea what they were originally! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


tumblr_n9jxieuiWd1s0s602o1_1280.jpg tumblr_n9jxieuiWd1s0s602o2_1280.jpg



I'm lying I just had a quick google - they're Acco Pressboard Report Covers #19921. They've all got identical contents and the same label on the front too.

The Bataan Death March Dogtags from Warehouse 13.

"With twenty miles remaining, Shrop fell deathly ill, the Japanese would have left him for dead but Giltoy urged him on. ‘You can do this,’ Giltoy told his friend over and over. He compelled his friend to perform an extraordinary feat. He wished so hard he made it true.”

tumblr_n705lp4Pdd1s0s602o2_1280.jpg
I love the story behind how this artifact was created so much, the whole episode had so much impact on me; it gave me goosebumps the first time I watched it! So now I’m very happy to own the dog tags - which are the ones seen in the photograph below as they were the only pair auctioned on a necklace chain - so in a sense these are the actual ones that were in the Death March.

Oh, and in keeping with the WW2 theme - I won the auction on the 70th anniversary of D-Day!

Mehmed II's Silken Cord
-
Warehouse 13

tumblr_n8g673j1bJ1s0s602o3_1280.jpg tumblr_n8g673j1bJ1s0s602o4_1280.jpg tumblr_n8g673j1bJ1s0s602o5_1280.jpg

There are 5 different cords in this set, one complete beauty cord, one almost severed cord, one cut cord and an extra half of a cut cord.

tumblr_n8g673j1bJ1s0s602o7_r1_1280.jpg tumblr_n8g673j1bJ1s0s602o8_r1_1280.jpg tumblr_n8g673j1bJ1s0s602o9_r1_1280.jpg

The beauty cord is seen on the Warehouse shelves as Artie takes it, as well as being used on the video label. It is also used in the nursery shot seen above. The partially severed cord is used for the close-up of Myka using the knife on it, and the severed cord is the one that sparks while Pete waves it about.

tumblr_n9y1u8gbAL1s0s602o6_1280.jpg tumblr_n8g673j1bJ1s0s602o10_r1_1280.jpg

And of course it wouldn't be complete without the obligatory screen! You can't really see what the Known Properties says on the close-up, but from a distance when Leena is putting the screen back you can catch a glimpse of a blurry word or two!


Little bit of background on this prop - when I saw the episode this was one of the artifacts that gave me shudders & I wanted to find a copy of it. So I spent absolutely ages trying to find a replica. I searched through haberdashery websites and looked at christmas cords, curtain ties, fabric catalogues etc. I really tried hard to find something even remotely close - but in the end it turnd out to be easier to obtain the original than find a replica! #cray

Hey hey hey, update time! I've got some new artifacts & replaced old ones to be more screen accurate, so here they are!

The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Doorknob (& purple tongs)

I actually didn't think about replacing the doorknob till I saw it in an episode of Supernatural (on an actual door, wtf?) so I knew it was mass-produced & therefore attainable!

I also made the screen for the Pearl of Wisdom from the design seen on Leena's Christmas shirt.

Doña Fausta's Brooch from Warehouse 13!

tumblr_n9wjopeSWV1s0s602o10_r1_1280.jpg

Obviously the one artifact every fan of the show wishes was real - the diamond brooch that changes you into a character on your favourite show!

"Ok but how does a cheap TV prop become an artifact?"

"It probably was just a cheap TV prop until Kelly's grandmother got it. Elderly, Shut-in, lost her husband - you know sometimes people fill a void, with an obsessive attachment to a TV show*. When her telenovela was cancelled, maybe the brooch was imbued with her longing to escape.
"





The brooch is a mass-produced piece of costume jewellery you can find on ebay for about £10. I snapped off the middle part, pulled out all the rhinestones, and replaced them with cubic zirconias. Which are notoriously difficult to capture the sparkle of with an iphone camera! Here is the creation process:
