I recently bought a TOS uniform and it was neither accurate to the series, nor to the movies, nor to any trek. Where can I get a good one for a fair price??

Great quality and price.  Shipping from China can be a bit killer though.

To your original post I think if you want a good one and you don't have the skills you are gonna have to spend some money to do it. My suggestion, because it was something I thought about, was to start here for the patterns and such: http://www.roddenberry.com/wardrobe/patterns then find someone in your town who can make it for you, start with a costume shop to see if they know people who do that sort of thing. I remember being at a convention a long time ago and saw a girl dressed as Lt. Valeris and the costume looked just like the movie version and she said she hired someone in Houston (where she was from) to do it. Hope that helps in anyway.


Are you sure it isn't time for a colorful metaphor?
