You can buy long cylindrical jars at alot of homeware shops and fill it with childrens toy slime, which you can find at most toy shops. or another idea would be to buy a green cylinder lava lamp and just use that. Problem with these 2 ideas is that they will be made of glass which may cause a problem if dropped =/.
Another ide would be to buy a big cheap bottle of bubble bath or something and alter the bottle to make it neat at both ends and once again use slime or just green liquid as the bile itself. The problem i can see with this would be making it strong and air tight so it can hold the bile inside without leaking or bursting open during travel.
You can print this out to stick to the bomb.

I'd hate to dig up an old thread, but I have to since I am making a few Bile jars for halloween this year. I'm going as a hunter and friend will be doing Nick.
I'm in the middle of making a high quality Bile jar label and have already made the "BIOSAFETY SEAL" sticker for the cap. I think I've found a site that can print out the sticker labels for a decent price.
...thing is they require me to purchase at least 25 labels.
^_^ I might just have to make all 25 and ebay the ones I don't need.

If You Want Weird Feeling Goopy Slime Theres This Bath 'Slime' Stuff You Can Get Pretty Cheaply Which Turns Water Into Goop , And If You Need To Make It Liquidy Again It Comes With A Powder Which De-Slimes It :D

My suggestion would be to get some clear Tupperware cylinder plastic drinking sport bottles, you can find them at like wal-mart or something.
As for the caps, you can go to your local hardware store, with the bottle in hand. To fit both the top and bottom with caps.
Want something to fill it? You can keep it functional as both a prop and a drink

if they were not so expensive I would still recommend the Voss designer water bottles for the bile jars. the large one just fits in the hand so well and with the proper tools (a sander, cardboard, a cotter pin, white paint, glue, and toothpicks) they can be pretty convincing props and functional. course realistically you work with what ya got

Med pack is at target. No lie. It's a 1st aid kit, just add straps!
Thanks for all the boomer bile tips!!
