Hubby owns a Mal replica. There are lots of them around if you do a search. The biggest price is for the leathers. Although they are not hard to copy if you want to. I've seen patterns for the holster, but don't remember where...

I recently saw mention of someone looking into making functional Mal replicas. Don't remember where and it seemed preliminary.

Hubby and friends say Vera could be built up from a currently available firearm (although they don't see functional value for some of the stuff added for looks). You can probably find instructions around in older Browncoat forums.

I'd want functional if money is no object.

Is there a place to get display ones though? I haven't really searched for them.

Are you wanting functional versions of Vera or Mal's pistol or display only?

Does it have to be a firefly item? Or could it be a personality or characteristic? Because I would buy River's grace, Kaylee's body and vernacular. I'd want Jayne's love of things explosive, and Mal's uncanny sense of leadership. I'd like Simon's medical knowledge, and Zoe's self-confidence and attitude.

That's what I would buy.

The Austin Browncoats taught knitting at a con in Dallas and that is where I learned enough to make my Jayne hat.

The Austin Browncoats came to our Comicon this past weekend. I bought some fun stuff. I got a Jayne's Town shirt(graphic image of the Jayne statue), A Serenity lunch box, a Browncoats ribbon car magnet, a silver Firefly charm(says Firefly in Chinese characters), an Independent's iron-on patch, a button that says..."I Aim To Misbehave", and a Firefly(the ship) sticker. I had so much fun talking with them at their booth. They have a website where you can purchase all this stuff and more. I wanted a Jayne hat too but I figured I would wait until closer to weather I can wear it in and order online.

Now, dream buy... with money as no object... hmmmm... I would try to get ALL of the cast together for a huge Firefly party with atmosphere included.

If money were no object, I'd buy the rights to the show and there would be new movies scheduled to be filmed. I'd also end up making a profit on the DVD rights, I bet. So not only would I get my wish and make everyone happy, I'd make money off of it too.

I have one of Jayne's Ts (it's a blue sun logo on an army green shirt). I also have a Fruity Oaty bar shirt as well as a browncoats hoodie lol It's cool having such fun reminders of an awesome show. If money were no object (and the ship actually flew) I would TOTALLY buy Sereniy, find myself a mechanic and a pilot, take my best bud who always has my back and blast off to see what's out there!! Maybe even a male "companion" tee hee hee

I attended a course put on by the Austin Browncoats to learn how to knit so I could make my own Jayne hat. Now hubby and I both have them. They make me happy. You can buy Jayne hats of many and different varieties as well.

I have seen several Jayne t-shirts available for purchase.

I'm glad some people want to wear Kaylee's dress. It makes me happy to see it. My style is more her overalls.

Yes, I can't imagine wearing her cake dress either! lol! But I do love all the fun memories of the show it brings back (Captain tightpants!).

I don't know about Jayne's t-shirts but I know you can find knitting patterns on-line of his hat.

Kalyee's cake dress - I know I couldn't pull off wearing it! LOL Pink is not my color, but I know I'd be the one at the party talking spaceship mechanics!

I'm pretty sure my Ren Fest costuming background and now having helped friends with cosplay and cowboy festival clothes, I'm 100% sure I could MAKE Kalyee's dress easily. I'd do it as long as someone doesn't "see to" me as their "girl" about the fit! ;)

BTW Isn't there mass produced versions of Jayne's T's? I want to say I've seen two of them somewhere. (Sorry, new to board if it has been mentioned 100 times.)

If I was going to have memorabilia that I would actually wear or use...either Inara or Zoe's outfits...If it was going on display as kind of a decoration...definitely Inara's BUT ....if it was something that I wanted purely for a fond memory that would make me smile when I saw it I would say Kaylee's wedding cake dress!!

Mmmm - draping and flowing romantic prettiness does sound nice. I retired from a male dominated environment and may understand some of your challenges.

Still, I would love to have all Jayne's armaments in a functional form and his tshirts. I would wear the tshirts and take the guns target shooting. Just owning Vera would give me incredible bragging rights in my usual crowd.

Guess I'm the odd-ball, I'd want a room that looks as serene as Inara's shuttle, or just a few of her outfits. Especially the ones that flow and drape or all her shawls. I'm a sucker for old fashioned shawls. :) It would be a good counter balance to my job (when I have one) in a male dominated field vs being romantic, flowing and feminine when I have the time!

There sure seems to be a lot of folks that would like to own Mal's coat! And I'm one of them. I'd want the Firefly version and his whole outfit in my sizes, of course.

Or maybe I would prefer to have ALL of Jayne's tshirts and working models of all his armaments, including Vera... WooHoo!

Personally, I would purchase Zoey's wardrobe. Not a cheapy costume version but an expensive version exactly like the one she actually wore! I have no idea where I would wear it... I guess any day I felt like being tough but sexy...

If money was not an issue, what one Firefly item would you buy?

Would you buy the ship if it existed? Someone's authentic wardrobe? Pictures? Props?
