Apparel: Patches [ワッペン]



Just like Japan enjoys making clothes and all sorts of replica goods: they really love making patches. Known as 'wappen,' a German loan word meaning 'coat of arms' or 'emblem,' these patches range from fully embroidered replica work of actual patches that would be in the world of Biohazard, to PVC badges, and even tactical-style patches with double backing allowing for them to be easily removed in the event of washing whatever you've got them attached to.

For the Biohazard series, most of the patches come from the company PHANTOM, who are very renown in the community for their replica attire, tac gear, and: patches. I think they're a neat little merchandise addition, though I do stress that patches like this are quite expensive, ranging from 1,800-2,200円 in most cases, which can be a deterrent to collectors when also dealing with colour variations. Much like my clothing rule: if it has multiple colour releases for the exact same thing, I buy the one that appeals to me the most to catalogue it.

Title: Biohazard 15th Anniversary S.T.A.R.S. Patch (バイオハザード15周年記念「S.T.A.R.S.」ワッペン) [AP01]
Manufacturer: Capcom (株式会社カプコン)
Released: 16/05/2011
Retail: 2,100円

Information:
Released for the 15th anniversary. Simply the well known and beloved S.T.A.R.S. logo emblazoned as a patch. The embroidery on this is to die for, much like its partner patch released by e-Capcom... and you'd hope so given the cost. That said, it looks a lot nicer and well wearing than a lot of the cheaper produced ones released by chains like Hot Topic in the US.
