Original movie props from Sucker Punch on display...

Not only did the movie exhibit at ArcLight Pasadena cinema have fantastic costumes featured in Sucker Punch, but also the signature weapons of the leading ladies from the fantasy-action movie on display too.

The Japanese katana used by Emily Browning as 'Babydoll' in the movie had the most amazing engravings on the blade, featuring cherries, bunnies and flowers amongst other things.

Also included in the prop exhibit was the Native American heart throwing tomahawk used by Vanessa Hudgens character. Take a look at her skin-tight Blondie costume from Sucker Punch.

Finally, Abbie Cornish gets to handle the big guns as 'Sweet Pea' and in particular this rifle replica (which was much lighter and mostly made of a foamlike material rather than metal).

  1. Sweet Pea's weapon you are displaying is not an M4 (which is used in the movie) but a Remington 870 with a tactical stock, breacher muzzle brake, ghost ring sight, and light mount.

    1. Actually, if you look carefully, you will see this weapob as a breacher/backup strapped to her back. Her M4 is her main gun, but this shotgun is clearly on her as well...

    2. Sorry, my earlier post wasn't as clear... Sweet Pea did, indeed, carry an M4 as her primary battle weapon, but she also carried a Remington 870 replica just like this one as her breacher/backup weapon - which is consistent with what would be expected on a properly outfitted team, given the makeup of the squad itself. All of the characters carried multiple weapons, although not all of them were used.

    3. Sorry again... Like I really needed another reason to watch this movie again... :) But I did, and for further clarity... While it is true that this is not her M4 like the display signage indicates, this is, in fact, one of Sweet Pea's main weapons. She carries it as a Breacher/Backup in many scenes, and (just for kicks) it's important to note that Sweet Pea does, in fact, switch it up and use the Remington 870 as her primary, M4 as a backup, during the assault on the train - something that is a good tactical choice given the unit, tactics, and proximity of the enemy. It's my understanding that they had experienced tactical (and technical) assistance durin the filming. I can say that most of the techniques and movement of them during their battle scenes, while quite sexy in their look, are actually very accurate and spot on. Their zones are tight, they move well as a small unit. Biggest issue I had was that it was too obviously rehearsed because they did not have enough in-unit communication during the battles. But hey, this was HER fantasy, not mine!

    4. Thanks for all the comments, clarifications and enthusiasm :)

  2. Thanks for clarifying, was just going by the information supplied with the display.

  3. Thank you for your blog post on Sucker Punch. Read my blog on the inspirations drawn to create the Sucker Punch costumes at:

    Leave a comment and pass it around. Thanks.

  4. It was a great honor making the corsets for Sucker Punch and working with Michael Wilkinson.

  5. These are wonderful photos taken. Thank you very much for sharing!

    I was wondering if maybe you had more upclose photos of Babydoll's Samuari Sword, the whole length? I'm interested in the design on the sword.

    I was thinking of having that tattooed on my side and needed the full design to do it.

    Thanks in advance! This is a great blog.

  6. I wish I did have pics of the whole sword, but the lighting and the length of the blade made it hard to photograph in the time I had.

  7. Jason, thank you for the quick reply. I hope something will surface soon with it.

  8. @hausofashley: I have a complete picture of the design. Just send me an mail if you're still interested.

  9. does anyone know who designed the glasses carla gugino's character was swearing?

  10. i love the entire movie's costume and props. would anyone happen to know the best costume designer that could create replicas of their outfits? thank you.

  11. baby doll step father used a knife to open the last will icant find it anyone can help

  12. Do you know if the Babydoll 1911 displayed is a non-firing prop like Amber's Glock or an actual live-firing example?

  13. Sorry not sure, it felt pretty solid when I held it, but I'm not a firearms expert

  14. the props and costumes were the best part of this movie! does anyone happen to know who the artist that did the engravings on babydoll's sword and gun is? i would love to see more of their work!!

  15. Apparently Alex Pardee was responsible for the art on the sword/gun

  19. The Babydoll "pistol" above is not accurate and seems to be a black plastic 'airsoft' prop. The model that Babydoll used in the movie is the 1911A1 model with the vertical serrated grip on the slide and not slated one as shown above. The reason that I suspect that the pistol shown above is black plastic painted silver is that the charm lanyards holder is not what you would find on a real pistol. The one shown above seems to be an 'eye screw' that you can find in any hardware store and screwed onto the bottom of the grip (can't do that to a real steel pistol). You can also see the silver paint chipping away from the barrel in the ejector port area of the pistol. If this prop was used in the movie, I didn't see it. Perhaps it was a publicity/ display prop instead of the actual pistol used. If I was a publicist, I don't think I would want to display a real gun (and they did use real ones in the movie) in such a flimsy display case either. Just my two cents. :)

  20. These props (and the costumes) were supplied by the studio for display, but some of them could be stunt props too. I'm not a gun expert.

  21. Do you know if the studio would be interested in selling the sword?

  22. I'd assume that the sword would be in Warner Bros Studios archives.
