Back in 2005 I remember going to see Serenity on the big screen and being blown away by the cool characters and sci-fi concepts, so much so that I rushed out and bought the box set of Joss Whedon's short-lived Firefly TV series that the movie was a continuation of.
Since I enjoyed the movie and 2002 TV series so much, you can imagine my delight at seeing the costume worn by Nathan Fillion as 'Captain Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds' in the film (and quite possibly the series?) on display at Universal Studios Hollywood on January 23, 2014.
Mal's iconic deerskin 'Browncoat' is from his Independents army days and his folded back sleeve cuffs are influenced by Oriental style robes with their silk linings. If you're a fan, you can actually by replicas of the coat at Jonathan A. Logan's website.
In addition to the fantastic costume, there was also this 'Blue Sun' bottle prop on display. The Blue Sun Corporation is a mega-corporation of the future and one of the richest, most powerful and corrupt businesses in existence, whose products include food and drink packaged goods used by settlers on newly terraformed worlds.
