The Promised Bit of Background:
The Fingermen, being secret police, do not have uniforms. They do however have badges and guns. Leaving the gun part to you, this is how to make the badge.

~Cardboard (a flap from a cardboard box is plenty)
~Red, blue, and silver Sharpies
~A glue of some sort (unless you're a Gorilla Glue god, then I would stick to wood or school glue)
~Ruler and pen(cil)
~Scissors and/or X-acto

Step 2: Putting It Together

~tape into wallet

Magnets do not interfere with xrays. However if the magnets were powerful enough they might interfere with the CRT that views the xray data.

V for Vendetta is one of the movies that I can watch again and again. I love the end of it. "Remember remember the 5th of November..." with this you can say to your friends that you were an extra in the movie using the "get you hand into spiderman 3" instructable and you played a fingerman and keept the prop :)
