    costumes, but made almost all of them myself.

    I have only two authentic movie props, from two of my favorite movies. One is a foam-rubber stunt Morita rifle from "Starship Troopers", and the other is one of the stunt Roman legion shields from the opening scene of "Gladiator".

    My only authentic ancient weapon is a wakizashi that my grandfather found in the attic of a house that he bought back in the 50's. I'm assuming it was brought here from Japan after the war. It is, sadly, beat all to hell--the blade is chipped and corroded quite a bit, and the tsuba and habaki are missing.

    I was never that much into Asian stuff though--always preferred the European.
