Did you make that? Wow! It's so much nicer than the ultra expensive official replicas. When I have a bit more time I may have to PM you for tips!

So are you thinking of making those and selling them, because I think quite a few people on this site would be willing to pay some coin for a coat this shiny!

I am bouncing the idea of making these to sell around. Need more input on it, though. PM me, let me know your opinions.

You made that? Supershiny, well done and what talent.

But you forgot the stitch on the coat where Mal was hit with that kerfed knife.

Just wanted to say, you look like George Lucas in that picture.

Is George Lucas a browncoat? 8}

That is fridden amazing. I, for one (of many) would love you to make some like this for sale!

Tuesday, July 11, 2006 4:13 AM


me loves it. All manner of shininess there my friend. I'd get one.

Tuesday, July 11, 2006 11:46 AM


Oh God YES, you should make and sell these! That coat is awesome and if I ever have any to spare I will gladly spend good cashy money for one.

Definitely an A-1 level job, Tristan. Really should think about marketing your skills...or a series of instructions at cost for use less lucky Browncoats:D

Serenity---from Bed Bath and Beyond!
I was tooling around the new BB&B, and came across this little prize! Yep, 'tis now gracing the bar!
If anyone has a BB&B near them, check and see if they have these!

Second "Guess What" Shot of the bar
Huh. Guess I should actually show what I added, eh? This shot is from the bar to the opposite wall, showing the table. The panelled wall and a bit of the ceiling are all that remain to be covered. I'm also planning on doing something running up the stairs...not sure what, though.

Guess what....yep, more of the bar
I promise I will be finished with this and will quit posting photos, but I do like the feedback and ideas. I put up two more bolts of cloth (1 on the ceiling, one on the walls), and need about two more to finish it off completely. This is a shot from about two stairs up looking towards the bar proper. I just need some Tall Cards on the table, and I'll be ready for a game!

More Bar Shots
Finally got another bolt of cloth....had to wait for a new shipment to come in, and it's not quite the same color. So, that wall is almost complete now. I'll post a few more of these in the photo thread so as not to flood Blue Sun.
Maybe another month or so, I'll be ready for a proper Shindig!

Another Bar Shot
Ignore the shiny brown material on the stairs...that's me playing. That will be replaced with the red material, too. Just wanted y'all to see the brass "table" I found, as well as the crown of the bar...the signed Serenity poster! I think it's all of the BDH's, plus some of the production staff. That wall is also where I'll be putting the rest of my "stuff".
So, I'll put out invitations when it's ready for the Shindig!

Firefly-themed basement Part 2
Just wanted you all to see the rest....

Firefly-themed basement
My original plan was to put some of my Firefly stuff on display in my basement/bar...then I had the idea to decorate the bar in Firefly-stlye...then the idea came about to decorate the whole room in a cross between the Maidenhead and Inara's shuttle. I'm not sure what I have now. I'm happy with it, though, and would love to hear what you all think! Shindig at Tristan's!

Tristan as Mal Banner
My mother-in-law has this wonderful photo-editing program, and she made this shiny banner-type photo for me!

*dance of joy*
Finally finished the Mal costume! I am now ready for DragonCon! I hope to see many of you there.
This is a side view, showing the last elements of the costume; the belt, holster, and repainted pistol.
Thanks for looking and thanks for tolerating all the threads!

Mal-Almost complete!
Just got the pants in yesterday...still have to put the stripe on them, finish off the suspenders, and get a belt and holster. Critiques and comments welcome, as always, and sarcastic remarks cheerfully ignored!
