Topic: Welcome to the Hotel Spendide

I have been really getting carried away with Casino Royale props lately and decided to have a go at creating Hotel Splendide room card and wallet which Vesper Lynd picks up at the hotel reception desk after she has signed the reservation letter, also at one point you can see Bond with the room card in his hand.
And here is the end result, the addition of the Vesper signed reservation letter is a bit of a fantasy item to complete the set. ajb007/martini

Splendid, AA! ajb007/cheers

Love the reservation letter, nice touch. It's a real joy to make the custom stuff, putting in the extra research and having a certain amount of freedom with the design.

Keep the props coming!

Re: Welcome to the Hotel Spendide

The signature won‘t do the movie justice. Vesper signs the receipt in like half a second, so it probably wouldn’t look so nicely.
Anyway, admire the dedication.  ajb007/martini

The name is Walker by the way.

On reflection it did look like something from a Roger Moore film rather than Daniel Craig  ajb007/lol

Re: Welcome to the Hotel Spendide

Thank you everyone for your kind comments, they are much appreciated  ajb007/martini
I have been lucky to locate some good reference images to work from, even the room card is printed on PVC card, so I have ventured in plastic Tat now  ajb007/smile
And in answer to some enquiries I have had, Yes I can make extra copies if anyone is interested ajb007/martini

Re: Welcome to the Hotel Spendide

I was tempted to mention the signature earlier - not that it was signed quickly, but that it might look closer to how it does on her passport.

This is the largest image I know of, but could be scaled up several times before restoring - then just have it say 'Broadchest' as before.

Tune in at 01:03min: There‘s no way she could have written the name in that time frame. Probably barely managed to write more than one letter... ajb007/smile

Re: Welcome to the Hotel Spendide

AugustWalker I wasn't disagreeing with you about the signature being a quick scribble (and good spot, by the way), I'm merely talking about the style of handwriting. Perhaps AA will just use initials? We'll see.

Ah ok, sorry if I misunderstood anything  ajb007/martini

No worries mate - I can see where my initial comment could've been phrased better ajb007/martini
My curse is that I can't watch a Bond film all the way through without pausing it a hundred times to document a prop! ajb007/insane
