I have wanted RE T-Virus props for a long time, and on eBay even the handmade ones are expensive. I would have to buy a whole anniversary set to get a mass produced antidote or virus vial. I stalked etsy for over a year looking for boro glass spiral beads to replicate the blue and green liquids, and spent 3 months looking for the right size vials.

The front of the tin says Property of Umbrella Corporation with a little logo that I hand colored. I also used markers on my fingers in red, brown and grey to make it appear that it had been handled by zombies or survivors or both. Inside is the case with the t-virus and antidote samples. There is a biohazard warning that says not to use on humans, and what is in the case(T-Virus 100072 and T1 Antidote 100072a). I just made that up, it has no meaning in the game.

On the back, I put a handwritten inspection sticker that I initialed and marked "pass" and added a symbol sticker my husband had on hand from computer assembly. Then, just to be silly I added a smiley face sticker.

The case is removable, but the vials are in a clear case that was then wrapped shut with tape and metallic ribbon to look like chrome. There is a tiny crack in the case's corner that at first I was bummed out about, but now it just looks like it could have been "tampered with". Overall, I am thrilled with it, and can now stop obsessing about getting it. Here is a shot from the film, I was inspired by it.
