Hey Say You Brade Runnah

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.
