it really isn't...


foam core, clay, paint...


I'm having some trouble locating silver paint, but I could always ask my tech-ed teacher if I could borrow some spray paint.


The pin is really going to be the most difficult part... maybe magnets would be the way to go with this...

Silver paint is easy try Autozone or any other automotive parts store they usually have a good selection of silver or metallic spraypaints.


Elim Garak: Remember: it's not just Tain we're looking for. The Maryland, the Proxima, the Sarajevo, Starfleet ships that have been lost in the Gamma Quadrant for years; and their crews - brave soldiers, warriors of the Federation unaccounted for... We owe it to them to do everything in our power to find them and bring them home. It's the honorable thing to do. Worf: You use that word, but you have no idea what it means. Elim Garak: Maybe not. But you do.

Cosplay Sky is great! I've ordered from them before (nothing ST, but...) and the quality was pretty great.


 


Janeway- ! ! I'm with you. hahahaha


 


My two best friends and I all own TOS uniforms, and I like to think we're pretty real.


Happy Birthday Leonard Nimoy!!! You are one of the most talented, inspirational, and respectable people to have ever garnered so much fame. llap, always.

Pretty much the same with Romulan uniforms :/ I found a $2000 replica that was not even the era I wanted and that was about it with a few TOS Romulan costumes tossed in. No luck with the TNG era however


Jolan Tru, may your day be filled with peace.

yeah found a few screen used Cardassian uniforms on eBay that went for thousands but belonged to Mark Alamo and the mirror universe Garak... both actors are shorter and skinnier than I. I'm kind of shocked that there are no websites on how to make your own, I found a site that tells you how to make a Klingon from forehead to boots but nothing on any other species... is that racism?

Yes, it is racist, they are assuming that fans only would want to be Starfleet humans, Vulcans, Klingons and I’ve even seen Bajorans. I feel a little insulted.


You can get the prosthetics made for you all over the internet, I found a good one on etsy.com.
