    Not sure if anybody else has received one yet, but my Don Eladio rosary from eBay just arrived. As SquidMan mentioned above it's not perfect, but it's nice to have a more cost effective version of this.
    It's good quality and has a nice weight to it. My only complaint would be that it's pretty oversized. Which is a shame, but not a deal breaker at this price.
    It feels a lot more like the Eye of Agamotto from Dr. Strange than a rosary.

    Just got the Don Eladio necklace from the ebay seller, and I agree, it's a tad too big. I'd say maybe 2/3 the size it is and it'd be perfect. Also, the eye is a little too symmetrical/perfect. That all being said, for the price, this can't be beat.

    I recreated this:

    Jane's Cigarette, as seen in Fly (S3E10) and Abiquiú (S3E11)


    Screenshot from the episode:

    Here is what one of the production props looked like (not the screen-used one, pic taken from a Screenbid auction):

    This Screenbid photo revealed what brand of cigarettes was used -- they were Ecstacy Herbal Cigarettes (Whites). These types of cigarettes contain no tobacco and are used by actors so that they don't need to actually smoke real cigarettes for a scene.

    I ordered a pack from the Ecstacy website but unfortunately they've changed their design since the ones used in Breaking Bad. They now have orange filters and the logo looks different. So, I decided to make a printable replica of the outside of the cigarette, including the lipstick mark, and wrapped and glued it around a real cigarette. I cut and glued a very thin line of gold origami paper to recreate the gold stripe on the screen-used cigarette, lit the end to make it look "used," and put some Krazy Glue on the exposed end to keep the ash and tobacco from falling out over time.

    If anyone would like the printable design that you can wrap around any cigarette, please send me a PM with your email address, and I'll gladly share it with you.

    I just registered every reading every page in this incredible thread. I actually found this site last month after buying a licensed Tomenosuke Blade Runner Blaster, and was pretty excited when I saw a thread dedicated to my favorite show.

    Since Breaking Bad ended, I've always been interested in props revolving around Vamonos Pest and A1A Car Wash, and strangely I don't think I've seen any in this thread. My grail props would be a Zafiro bottle/stopper, and an Eladio rosary. I got the China-made Eladio rosary, because the Brevard is kinda pricey. I'm looking forward to my next re-watch with this thread in mind, so I post anything I'm interested in.
