I wish I was half that good as well....

And it feels like your O'Brian is over-compensating for something...

 O'Brien would!

I wish Andorian antennas weren't impossible to find. Blue makeup and white/silve wig/hairdye are surprisingly easy to come by, I can find everything I need but the antennas.

Look in your local toy store for toy scorpions the tails if articulated could be painted to look like anteni

 

Interesting idea, I may just do that, and I could always mold them out of sculpey clay. 

I suck at clay molding. The scorpion idea is not to bad.

I tried looking online for anyone that made and sold them at cosplay or costume stores, but no luck on that front.

Well I've found some people through etsy who make some prosthetics so maybe I can request some. Which would be great because my clay molding skills aren't that great either.


I can mould putty -- but haven't managed to find any yet of the right consistency / colour etc. (Maybe I could check out the RPG shop in town... But I also don't have the money to splash around right now!)


At the moment my idea I have is to sew up some felt shapes or something. My costume is very much a WIP... (even though I've already worn it to at least one con!)


The scorpion idea is a good one -- Perhaps I'll go looking for one at the museum gift shop at some point.

That's part of the gag when I took that pic... Males in general and their love of big weapons. Klingon disruptors are the worst for phallic imagery.

I dislike huge quote-trees.


If I work with clay or putty I'll get a fairly neutral color, or perhaps pinkish for the inside tips, and paint them once complete. Much easier to mix a correct color of paint than find a sufficeint color of molding medium.


Jolan Tru, may your day be filled with peace.

I like the type 3 phaser rifles they used during the dominion war. They have a look to them, not very sleek, but sturdy... something I'd keep under my pillow at night.

@267198ed: Yeah, I'd mold them first and then worry about any colering issues. I'd want them to match the skin tone after all.


@MR: I'd like to think that was future velcro. The sort were a current runs through it which holds the sidearm in place till you make skin contact and breat the circuit or lightly press a pad or button or something...If not there's no way that phaser would stay on during a Kirk roll.

Isn't there an actual on-air blooper on "Space Seed" in which Kirk's phaser falls off his belt and McCoy reaches down to pick it up?


Maybe near the beginning of the episode when they're inspecting the sleeping chambers?


Anyway, I remember it being pretty funny...


Need to pull out my DVDs...

I know, but I had the picture, so I thought I'd post it anyway.

For me it's a three-way tie between the classic TOS phasers, the ergonomic TMP phasers, and the dustbusters from TNG. I had toys of all three, and the TMP one was the most comfortable to hold, but the TNG one always looked really cool in its holster.


I also think the type-1 pocket phasers are a neat idea, but I'm alone in that.

Not completely. i rather like them as well, but I think they were incorrectly used in TOS. Why would someone choose a Type-1 over a Type-2 on an away mission, other than concielment? For that reason I think the Type-1 should hae been some kind of spy phaser, or a backup weapon. Lord knows Kirk could have used one hidden in his boot, after getting caught and imprisoned on all those alien planets.

In early TNG they always seemed to have one available -- except when the plot required them not to. As for Kirk, even if he did have a pocket phaser handy, he'd probably rather trick the guards into opening the cell doors using the old "sick prisoner" gag. Kirk was a traditionalist.

Nothing wrong with that. If you've got a puzzle you want to solve, you don't want to look up the answer somewhere online (use the phaser). You wanna work at it and get the satisfaction that comes from working it out on your own (tricking the guards).
