Hi, I'm a 41 year old Home designer. I saw "Raiders" when I was 10 years old while on a movie outing with my fellow cub scouts. Loved the films ever since. I have a small room in my shop I call the mancave. It's only 10X16 feet but it's large enough to have a small kitchen, table, 42" tv & wall room for cool Indy stuff. All the walls are barn wood and the ceiling is rusty tin. Before you look at my props, I do have some normal stuff that everyone else has like a Fedora, gun & belt. But I like to get other stuff that an Archeologist might have. Stuff Indy may have had or run across while working. My kitchen area is not finished yet, I'm waiting on my tile man. So here are my props & where I got them. I'm not too worried about my props being "movie accurate". They are more expensive and I think my props still give the effect of "Indiana Jones"
This Fedora came from Killer Hats and I got it cause it had a 3" brim. The gun & holster came from my great grandpa and the belt I got off Ebay for $10.00.
This is a geologist/prospect hammer I got off Ebay that was hand forged by an old man who passed away. I love this thing.
This is an authentic 1891 South America map & a 1940s gas mask from Russia. Both from ebay.
This lantern I got from my great grandpa. I bought the clapper board and film reels off of the internet.
This is a 1940s flashlite lantern that I rewired with a 5 volt power supply. It plugs into a 110v outlet but uses the original bulb. I will use this as accent lighting.
Dog tags? Yea I thought Indy may have had some so I had some made with his name. It's a small yet visual addition to my collection.
Just thought this canteen would look cool.
I made this skeleton myself. It mostly made from old newspapers, wire, duct tape, and womens pantyhose!
I found these hand forged arrowheads online. They look very close to the ones on "Raiders". I will mount them on the round wood dowel here and let them sit outside to rust. They should look pretty cool when done.
Got this media admission ticket off of ebay. It's supposed to be authentic from 1981. I'm not sure but it looks like it's not a repro.
Just my entry door.
When I finish the countertops and get everything setup, I will post another video but this is one just for now.
