    Hi,

    This is my costume collection to date..

    I have made all of these since learning how to sew this past year. There is one screen used costume among my collection.

    Let me know what you think:

    Costume Collection - Star Trek - YouTube


    Cheers

    WOW!!!

    I am assuming you do this for your profession? Did you use patterns or is this just from the hip?

    Amazing.:cool

    Expertly done. So often home made Trek costumes look oversized, or wrongly proportioned.

    Hey,

    No, not at all... I am a hotel manager lol !

    I wanted the costumes so decided to work off a lot of screen used images and having a screen used Voyager costume I created my own pattern.

    I have bought a pattern for the 1st season TNG costume which I altered and just recently a Nemesis pattern but I've not opened that yet.

    Yeah, thats very true. If it doesn't look close to the screen then I'm not happy. I don't wear them to be honest but to have them as part of a collection.

    Freaking awesome work, Alex. I grew up with the original series when it was in syndication and then with Next Generation. Always loved the uniforms and I think you did a great job with them all!

    Those are amazing costumes. I honestly have to say that I didn't know replica cloth costumes could be made so perfectly. They absolutely look professional.

    Your attention to detail is obvious. You have a great eye and a real talent. I would wear any of your costumes proudly.

    Great pics and great work, a few questions, where did you get your fabric? What type of fabric did you use to make the gray and black Nemesis jumpsuit? Is the maroon jumper made from the same material as the jumpsuit?

    The blue denim Enterprise uniforms would be a good project.

    The jumpsuits (St:TNG) are made from a heavy weight stretch jersey lycra spandex and the jacket version also (St:TNG) is made from a heavy weight wool gaberdine.

    The nemesis is made from black wool with lined trouser area and grey wool gabardine at the top. There is a grey elasique for the edging of the yolk area. One of these costumes has not been finished yet.

    I have ordered a pattern for the ST: II - VI costume to have a go but am unsure of the correct fabric and colours.

    I managed to purchase the grey wool online and the other ones in stores in other Edinburgh and Glasgow UK. To be honest, I am finding it very difficult indeed to get the correct colour and haven't been too successful with dying the woollens.

    Yes. I hadn't thought of the Enterprise Jumpsuits but I will give them a bash too. I find sewing relaxing but I usually finish the costume on the same day I start so I am learning patience.

    I mean do you make costumes for other people, to order? Or do you make them just for yourself and friends?
