T-Virus Container Prototype

Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

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.

Vial Prototype

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.
