T-Virus and Anti-virus Props

Picture of T-Virus and Anti-virus Props

I made these prop T-Virus and anti-virus container from the resident evil movies using some plastic tubes from some ear buds I had bought and translucent acrylic rod in florescent blue and green colors. the acrylic rods wer twisted around a dowel while being heated by a hair dryer and then glued in place in the tubes.

You should make an instructable on the needle if you can.

www.hypesound.com has the tubes that hold earbuds. they are longer and skinnier than the original movie tubes, But might make for nice virus tubes anyways.

earbuds "HY-059-AS"

Thank you for the complement and for defending the Instructable's be nice policy... Who was that masked man???
i love these. and It was wrong of that other person to say theirs is better. This is a DIY fun site. Someone might have a few more skills than someone else but this site is to share the skills. Not brag bout them. I give you kudos on your project and idea. Making some of my own soon. Also coming up with the syringe kit for the cure. keep up the good work.
I like these one's better, sorry.

I love these! They almost look exactly like the ones from the movie. (I think those were a bit fatter) Ah, I just can't get over how cool they are! Btw, did you paint the ends or was that like that already? And you wouldn't happen to know if I could get those rods from like a hobby store or something would you?

Thanks, The end pieces were already that silver color and I suppose you might be able to find the acrylic rods at a hobby/craft store, but I ordered mine online from an acrylic supplier.

i have made these using glass tubes, metal end caps, and heated glass tubes and twisted around a pipe to make internal rods. Got the inside tubes from chemistry class, they are filled with dyed water and hot glue seals them off. My carrying case looks like the one from the movie and they need its full protection. These are great for real props. mine simply break very easy.

I would like to see a photo of the glass ones that sounds pretty awesome

Pretty cool, how much did it cost?
Do you know what kind of headphones they were?
SWV1787 (author)  mg0930mg3 years ago
I don't remember what brand the headphones were it was a long time back and I had the tubes laying around until I found this as a use for them. The acrylic rods were found online and cost around $10 (USD) after shipping and all and I still have multiple rods of each color left over.

the acrylic rods inside the tube will fluoresce but the outer tubes do not.

They look like the "Gummi" ones (I think by Sony or Philips)
Got mine from Staples but everywhere has them (Best buy, etc)

I have the empty container here, using it for pennies.
