I've started gathering materials for my next costume build.
(Yep. It's another TWOK era ST costume.) I've been in a 'Scotty' kind of mood lately, so here is what I'll be attempting:
For the most part, it's just a big 'ol jumpsuit made out of heavy white cotton material. I've picked up some nice white denim that should work well (Especially since it's not a bright or 'crisp' white- although it is probably too white to be called off-white. If you follow...)
Most of the accessories are found items, but as I'm only making one costume, I'll probably scratch build them myself. Specifically parts like these:
(These photos are all from the Star Trek Auction Listings Archive- a great place to find reference pictures.)
Which are supposedly Edelrid climbing harness loops,
This looks to be a large flat washer with a lot of holes drilled in the edges and a grease 'zerk' installed in the center.
I could use help on this, though:
Clearly a found item, but any guess as to what, or if they are still available?
Most of the rest will just require some moderately clever sewing:
And some gluing of neoprene... Anyone have a good source for neoprene rubber sheets 1/4" thick?
There will eventually be glove modification and shoe coverings involved as well.
I'll end with a photo I actually took:
So, I promise in my next post, I'll show some actual work in progress, even if it's only pattern generation... (since this is a WIP thread, after all!)
Wish me luck!
