Any links or pics? Are these the "main gouche" daggars that sell for $150-200 each? I'm hoping to get these in a bit cheaper, seeing as you need at least 6 for a complete costume. :confusedOriginally posted by wuher da brewer@Mar 21 2006, 12:51 AM
Some of those Kit Rae Athame knives are close.
Where did you find them for that cheap? And where are some pics of a Rubies V costume? I haven't heard about this yet. Thanks.I got the Athame Knight's Dagger used in Spidey 2 and Riddick for 11.00 plus shipping. I wasn't saying to buy six of them or to even use real knives for costuming. It doesn't sound very smart going out with six long daggers that are indeed real. Here double bladed knives are illegal to carry in public as is any knife over 4" in length.

I was thinking about making a mirror in my bedroom with the same saying as that one in the movie.
the letters won't be embossed, I think I would etch the mirror coating off the backside with a vinyl template and some Ferric Chloride.
I forgot the exact phrase though, the latin one that V translated for eve, "through truth I conquered the universe" or something like that.
anybody know what it is in the original latin like in the movie, or could pop a screengrab?
Oh, I definitely wouldn't want to walk around a convention in that costume with REAL knives, either. I'm looking for visual replicas in that regard. But I may want an actual V daggar or two for my personal collection as well.Originally posted by wuher da brewer@Mar 21 2006, 01:58 AM

vi veni universum vivus vici
Fully Translates to "by the power of truth, I, a living man, have conquered the universe". I think they paraphrased the translation for the script/film, though. But that's the latin verse.
Nope. However, I'm attempting to at least track down the fabric (or something VERY close) and I may have found a suitable pattern that would work. If/when I finalize these discoveries, I'll be sure to share it right here.Originally posted by bladefans@Mar 25 2006, 03:44 AM
Has anyone been able to find a black doublet that looks close?
