Jayne's "Red Devil" cup from Serenity?

Props from the BDM - The Big Damn Movie

Jayne's "Red Devil" cup from Serenity?

Postby MikeTMC » Sun Nov 15, 2009 5:58 pm

I'm normally more interested in Firefly props than Serenity props- but the one thing I always thought I'd like to have was the "Red Devil" cup that Jayne drinks whiskey out of at about 1 hour 28 seconds into the Big Damned Movie.

It's pretty small- so I assume that it's possibly a Japanese sake cup?

I remember contacting PropStore of London back when they first announced they'd obtained the Serenity props... but that was not one of the props they had for sale.

Since everyone here seems so fantastic at identifying where things came from in making replicas- I thought I'd throw this item out there to see if anyone knows where I could get a similar cup.

Welcome Mike!

I spent several hours looking for the cup but found nothing.
Did anyone here find the correct cup?

Nope, never found a match. And I looked tried everywhere.

And I thought I was the only one looking... (grin)

I'm no expert- but to my eye that devil character very Japanese/woodcut style to it.

I also contacted POL about it right after they started selling props from the movie. I believe it is the item Adam Baldwin took with him from the set. It's not available as a prop, has never been for sale, and I can't find a replica. We're all out of luck.

Hi Carmela!

I saw your "Hi, I'm..." post in the 2011 Browncoat Ball forum.
Welcome to fireflyprops.net.
Sounds like you have an interest in Firefly/Serenity props;
this is definitely the place to discuss/learn about them.
I find myself occasionally reading through the old threads, so much good info!

Far as the Jayne red-devil cup, that looks like a good project for a sculptor-ceramics person.
I wonder if any of the 177 members here is gifted in that way?
While I'm dialing back my Firefly collecting,
I'd definitely spring for a ceramic version of the red-devil cup.
It would be both useful and a nice display piece to put with the BDM Serenity Jayne pistol
I haven't gotten around to finishing.

If I remember it, I'm going to ask him about it at Dragon*Con this year. Who knows... might get him to supply a few pics if he has it.
May have been on the losin' side, still not convinced it was the wrong one.

That would be great Goodwolf.... I NEED to drink some tequila from that cup! We have one of those "make your own" pottery places here, I was seriously considering trying to sculpt my own if I have to.

This thread seemed thoroughly dead ... So why not revive it! :lol

The cup looks to be a Japanese teacup and it's decorated with an "Oni" or Ogre. This appears to be a custom painted prop because, like many of you, I couldn't anything that even reasonabled it online. Also, the image is a stylized version not typically found in Japanese art.

Bad news - If you want one, you'll have to make it or have it made.

Good news - The cup itself is pretty easy to find since just about any brown teacup or sake cup will do. Dish safe ceramic paints are available at just about any craft store.
