This may sound a bit crazy, but my assumption is that many of you out there are fans of Joss Whedon’s short-lived space-western, Firefly. That may be completely off base, but we’re going to operate under this hypothesis for the time being. Now, many fans are known to occasionally collect souvenirs, trinkets, and other memorabilia from their beloved film and television franchises. And now is your opportunity to purchase and own a unique piece of the Firefly universe.
Shawna Trpcic is a costume designer who has worked with Whedon on number of projects, and now she’s taken to everyone’s favorite online auction site, eBay, to sell some of her concept sketches from shows like Firefly. (There are also drawings from the likes of Angel, Cabin in the Woods, and others available.)
There is a look at what Jayne Cobb (Adam Baldwin) was originally going to look like…
…as well as a vision of Shepherd Book (Ron Glass).
And let us not forget the lovely Zoe Washburn (Gina Torres).
An especially unique slice of Firefly merchandise is this drawing of Whedon himself as the character Badger. Before Mark Sheppard took the role, Whedon was penciled in to play the part. That could have been a lot of fun.
All of this, and more (45 pieces at the moment), is up at the auction site, and Trpcic will post more for sale over the next few weeks. So hurry up and grab your own piece of Firefly to show off to your fellow Browncoats, or give someone the best gift they’ll get this holiday season.
