My Baldric Buckle from Darcienne Sparber

Post  Mojo Turbo on Fri Jul 18, 2014 11:08 am

So a long time back when I was looking for a Baldric Buckle - I was weighing "looks" and "cost" and while I could not afford an ACME (at the time) I could afford a buckle from Sith Camaro (http://www.sithcamaro.com/). So I ordered it and when it arrived, it certainly was a buckle I had never seen before.

Since then, I have never seen another one - but I was able to write to Toby Marham (SC) and ask him from whence I got said trinket. He told me that he had purchased a bulk supply from Darcienne Sparber. DS was a long time "old schooler" with the original KTTC crew - as I understand it she was tight with all of them and made props for them as she had originally been hired to make some of the trinkets for the Jack Sparrow animatronics at Disneyland.

So I took pictures of my prop and emailed them to her (after I tracked her down) and she confirmed that the prop was of her design.

So I merely pass on the work as a testimony to her work, to the old scoolers and all the like.













Oh and if you're admiring the Baldric - that was Jack of All Trades (https://www.facebook.com/jattreasury ) aka Frankie Desmond's handiwork - I believe I have his second Baldric he ever made. I bought the pleather from the fabric store and mailed it to him and he made the rest with real leather and barge glue.

Oh and yes, the ones he makes now are MUCH BETTER!!!!!! (ha ha)

There ya go!

That baldric buckle truly looks like a casting of the original used on the movie!!!!!! DMC/AWE mind you not the contested OST curved version. She was given the first two movie props and parts to cast for Disney Empire!

Doesn't look like a recast of the screen used DMC/AWE one I've seen - the details are far too rough on this one compared the the original that feels smooth to the touch. AFAIK they're from the same stock in OST too and don't actually differ that much.

Of course, that's not to say that there could have been different ones used in filming, I'm just saying that's definitely not the same as the one I've seen, which is also the same (from casual observation) as the OST one.

I'm deliberately not comparing to any of the sellers out there, just to the screen used ones Smile I'd be interested to see any shots of a buckle looking like this one on screen, that's all!

I don't think so... the details on this one are more sticky outy, and various things are just different as opposed to details being lost from a dodgy recast. I could be wrong of course...

Mojo, my Darci buckle is made of brass, and actually looks a lot smoother over all then yours. Does it say Sparrows Nest creations on the back? Darci marked hers that way. I wonder if Toby has recasted it? It does look like a rough casting compared to what mine looks like.
