I've been spending way too much time lately thinking about props and memorabilia from Blade Runner. Clothing from the movies doesn't seem like all that difficult of a thing to secure. It's all just a matter of picking up the right patterns and material and getting someone I know who can sew to take care of it (which, I guess, is probably not an incredibly easy thing to do).
The other option is just buying props or whatever from a dealer or from an auction, but that seems like a process way out of my reach. Recently, the original "hero" prop gun-- the one Harrison Ford would have used in close ups-- went to auction and sold for $265,000. So, for the time being, I think that line of inquiry is going to have to wait.
