For fans of the Resident Evil game series, you’ll recognise the vial below as one of those held in the dying hand of Dr William Birkin.
It’s just a prototype though, and I’ve learnt a lot from it. I already have improved tooling in the works and a production procedure that will give a much finer finish. In addition, I also now have a supply of UV reactive dyes that will give a superior look to the fluid as well as making them glow under UV.
Reproductions of those from the game series will be available for about £50 each, as well as with various accessories such as Birkins needle and the G-Virus sample container seen for a scant few seconds near the end of RE:2.
Reproductions of the movie-style containers will also be available on demand for a slightly higher price.
And furthermore, for the dedicated cosplayer or fan-film maker, mechanicly functional versions of the vials are an option for commissioners who want to be able to show fluid being syphoned off.
