"Firefly" props at Memorabilia 25-26 November

We've received this release:

"Firefly at Memorabilia"

Joss Whedon’s short-lived Sci-Fi romp ‘Firefly’ may be gone, but it certainly isn’t forgotten. Firefly fandom is alive and well and is due to be celebrated at the upcoming Memorabilia show this Autumn.

The Firefly collection will be on public display this November 25th and 26th at the NEC in Birmingham. The collection comprises many hand props and costume items, documents, photographs and models.

This is the first time the collection has been shown in it’s entirety, anywhere in the world.

Items of special interest for fans of the show include Mal Reynolds’ original Browncoat, Jayne’s favourite gun ‘Vera’ and the only physical model of the ship ‘Serenity’ ever made.

Karl Derrick, the collection’s owner and a big Firefly fan, was a major contributor to the Official Firefly Companion book and will be on hand to sign copies and answer any questions visitors may have about the items on display.

A professional movie make up artist, Karl will also be entertaining visitors to the show (in the Halloween spirit) with a daily ‘zombie’ prosthetic make up demonstration. Karl’s film credits include Gladiator, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, The Brothers Grimm, and The Mummy Returns. He has just completed ‘1408’, a Stephen King supernatural thriller, starring John Cusack and Samuel L.Jackson."

All of the props/costumes are featured in the "Official Firefly Companion" and after seeing part of the collection at an event held at the National Space Centre in Leicester a couple of months ago, this is a must-see for all fans.

Hope to see many of you there.
