New, at the Prop Store of London: an Alliance uniform cap. But the description puzzles me:
A purple cap with a triangular patch on the front made for the sci-fi action film Serenity. The cap is similar to the version worn by the Alliance soldiers onboard the Operatives ship when it is attacked by the Reavers. One size fits most.
“Similar to”? Is it an actual costume prop or a replica? The price ($59) suggests it’s a real costume prop — too pricey for a home-made or licensed replica, I would think — but maybe one that never saw screen time, which would cost much more. And it’s listed under Props, instead of Replicas. The Prop Store is usually better about such distinctions. Maybe they couldn’t conclusively identify where it was used, so declined to say either way?
Whichever it is, it’s a nice looking cap for your purple-belly friends.
