Welcome What is a Browncoat What is Firefly


Specific Firefly Costumes

 

Brown Coats

AbbyShot Clothiers sells a detailed replica of an Independent's brown coat via their website at http://www.abbyshot.com/products/ps-firefly-browncoat.php. The coat is fairly expensive; however, they have a number of pictures of the coat from the front, side, and back, so if you are interested in making your own, this is a good resource for reference photos.

For a less expensive coat that wasn't specifically designed to resemble a Firefly coat but looks reasonable, one fan recommends http://www.wwmerc.com/cgi-bin/category.cgi?item=CM88&type=store in dark brown.

If you're interested in making one, look at the duster patterns at Patterns of Time: http://www.patternsoftime.com/proddetail.asp?prod=EV53

FYI, the original brown coat was made by Jonathan A. Logan: http://www.jonathanalogan.com/

Inara's 1930's Dress from 'Shindig'

As Shawna Trpcic says in the commentary, the dress Inara wears at the end while sitting with Mal in the cargo bay with the cows is from the 1930's. The "1930's Tea Dress" on http://www.patternsoftime.com/proddetail.asp?prod=RH936 has a similar neckline.

Wash's Tropical Shirts

SamuraiX47 recommended the following as sources for tropical shirts of the style Wash wears, noting, "I noticed that Wash sometimes wears a vest (leather?) over the Aloha shirt and that under the aloha shirt is a collared polo shirt, and under that is a t-shirt, maybe black. Sometimes he's wearing a jumpsuit with the aloha shirt and vest over it."

Jayne's Other Hat

If you'd like to find Jayne's black cloth hat from War Stories (see the picture), this is a good match: http://www.filson.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2092428&cp=2069836.2064999.2118241&parentPage=family

Mercsgoodgirl says, "The hat the merc's wearing in "War Stories" is definitely cotton duck canvas, not leather. My husband had a kahki one he picked up years ago at The Nature Company, which I dyed black. L. L. Bean's Aussie Crushable Hat is a close match, although you'll still have to dye it. Wash the hat in hot water and washing soda to remove any finish and use a concentrated hot dye solution. Remember to wear rubber gloves and use a dye vat you don't mind staining black. Once the color is deep and even, rinse and block (shape the brim and crown the way you want it) and allow to dry completely. As this may cause the hat to shrink slightly, purchase one that's a half-size too large."
