Welcome to Serenifly Costumes!
A study of the costumes of the TV show Firefly and the movie Serenity.  This website, paired with a blog of pictures, aims to help organize the costumes into a searchable form. 
Thanks to the talents of Jill Ohanneson for the pilot, Shawna Trpcic for the series, and Ruth Carter for the movie, we have interesting costumes to study and love. 
This site's main goal is to catalog all the costumes used in each episode and movie. 
There are spoilers galore here.  Please, be warned that if you haven't seen the series or movie, you will see plot spoilers within these pages.  Just go out and get it.'s a link so you can go get Firefly from Amazon (on blu-ray!) or Serenity from Amazon (on blu-ray!). 

what's here?
What will you see here?  You'll see research photos taken from screencaps, promotional photos, and scans from books and magazines dealing with the costumes from the series and movie.  I've tried to find every picture I can of all the costumes.  Some will have more exposure than others. 
What won't you see here?  Help with the actual making of a costume.  I don't know where you can get the perfect shirt to go with Kaylee's coveralls.  Nor do I know how to make most of the stuff used on the show.  I'll just keep track of the photos, you can do the rest!  :)  I will put up a tutorial if they're given to me.
Get started with the series or the movie.

what's new?
Make sure you check out the blog for the latest costume and news!
May 24, 2013 - I am nearly finished with my blogging of the main characters' costumes in both Firefly and Serenity.  After that, I'm going to get started on the recurring characters.  I'm really amazed by the support I've gotten.  Thanks everyone!
January 1, 2013 - I deleted a bunch of old pages, so some links will not work.  I also deleted a few pictures. 
October 26, 2012 - BLOG!  I've been trying to update at least one costume a day and link to that costume entry from here.  I haven't been able to do all the thumbnail pictures yet, but that is in the works.  I'm having a great time doing this, so I hope you are enjoying it as well.  Follow me on Twitter for the most recent updates and you can also subscribe to the blog itself.  Thanks everyone! :)
September 12, 2012 - Alright, the great move has begun!  I've updated the Browncoat post to reflect the new pictures.  I will continue to add and subtract!  I also started up a twitter account for small updates.  This is happening!  Yay!
September 4, 2012 - I'm still working on the move.  I've started VERY SLOWLY uploading pictures to a new photohosting site and I'm linking the new blog here!  BLOG!  I've had the blog for awhile and I have all of 2 entries at this point, but it's there and it is ready for posting!  I'll get posting during the next few weeks.  Yay!
August 8, 2012 - Hi everyone!  As you've noticed, my site here hasn't grown much, but I'm still getting traffic.  I love all of you and am so glad that my site has helped and inspired some of you.  All I wanted to do when I set out to put this together was to document all the costumes on a show I loved.  I still have a ton of pictures that are sitting on my hard drive getting dusty.  I've decided to take the site in a new direction and put it in blog form instead.  So, look here in the next few weeks to get a link to the new site and hopefully, it will be easier to add pictures and search.
Also, some of the pictures will probably get lost or links will die in the process, so just bear with me!
Thanks!  ~v
November 14, 2009 - YAY!  Fileden restored all my files.  You have no idea how happy this makes me.  So, all the links should work again!  Let me know if you find something that's missing.
October 23, 2009 - I'm so sorry, folks.  The webservice I was hosting some of my photos on (Fileden) lost my files.  ALL of my files.  They're gone.  So, some of my links have disappeared.  Some of the photos are just fine, but if you click on a link and it goes nowhere, I'm working on it.  Be patient with me.   :(
