    I have a client who is a nut about Star Trek (T.O.S.), he's a GREAT GUY..but?
    he is quite a stickler for authenticity on like a Molecular level..LOL LOL LOL

    So? Somehow? He managed to track down the actual fabric for the
    "Klingon Vests" used in the series from 1966 to 1969.

    It was very light weight, and it had to be cut going Against the Grain..because the pattern runs Vertically, but in the show? It runs Horizontally, so I had to give it some body, by adding some "Cotton Muslin" onto the backside of the Vest. To be extra sure... it was also lined in Black Cotton Broadcloth.

    Let me know what you think. :)

    I'm sorry Jessica. I have NO IDEA! :(

    The customer provided the fabric himself, it was a Long Dress originally.

    But I had to cut it up to make it into a Vest. Sorry Kiddo.


    Believe me...I wish I knew.

    As well as it should be.

    Untill all customers have been dealt with if I were you Shaunn I would not be putting these threads up.

    I'm sure you well know that this as well as other boards have long memories and rightfully so.

    Still owes me a better hat.

    ....and some rework on a uniform.

    ....and left over fabric.

    ....and patterns as promised.

    A better hat? For what Micheal? Left over fabric, and patterns? You received your "First Contact" uniform, and even Jose Salcedo could not see what you had a problem with? Aside from Max's cat having * on your costume, without either of us knowing about it.

    What left over fabric Mike? What "Patterns" Mike? I As I don't sell copies of my patterns..this should be quite interesting.

    Any "Left Over Fabric"? If there was in fact...anything "Left Over"? From what project I have NO IDEA....Was taken by Mark Dickson!

    As was 30-years of my entire life, when he trashed ALL of the contents of my Storage Facility...back in 2005.

    But...by all means? Feel free to enlighten me?

    Well to remind you. We switched from the ill fitting, **** covered, way too late for the premiere, crooked and inaccurate by laymen's eyes, First Contact uniform for the Black Imperial Officer uniform that I also PAID AN EXTRA $350 for. Note: The First Contact costume was sold as the most accurate ever. It wasn't even close.

    You promised me a better Officers's hat, when I pointed out how wrong and sloppy the one you made is. Looks like a 1st year costumer made it. Not one of the best out there.

    When you never did that, you promised me the left over fabric, so I could have one made, so it would match.

    Then you promised me the patterns for the uniform, so I could make a matching green one.

    Plus some parts of the the uniform are so sloppy they need re-doing.

    Which you couldn't do and still make CELEBRATION 3. So you promised to do them later. And you vanished.

    I've cut you every break on this project and you just vanished.

    I, in fact, knew where you were and left you alone because you clearly needed some breathing room.

    It might be time to just come clean and make good.

    I surely would never expect that.

    Were those jackets crap or what?

    Seems to me the crap never ended and he's been trying to hide all this while "repairing" his reputation.

    so, that's 3 current people you have screwed over. Make it right before trying to sucker new people in.

    Recently I paid for something and was promised in email the material would be spandex for a TMP jumpsuit. When I received the material had been changed w no warning. The definition of Internet fraud my attorney assures me. Oh and plus the jumpsuit had many other problems. That was over a year ago.

    I paid over a year and a half ago for a Original BSG Uniform and haven't gotten anything. No neef for any lawyer, this is theft.

    Looks like some things never change :unsure

    As for who I am Shaunn I am someone who has read the hundreds of posts of people who you have either ripped off completely or sent shoddy costumes to.

    I don't like seeing my Brothers and sisters ripped off and I am certainly not going to stand here and see you start all over again.

    I, and I am sure the people posting here, expect you to make good on the transactions that are in limbo

    I am at your leisure Mike. When can you come over? Are you still living in California? If not? I will need a copy of your measurements.

    NO! I don't have your measurements anymore...or I wouldn't be asking for them.

    And if you think my sewing is CRAP? Then why have me sew for you?

    This was over 8-years ago Mike! Thanks for refreshing my memory!

    Maybe you will recall that the place that Max and I were living in was SOLD out from underneath of us! "Disappeared"? More like...had NO CHOICE but to move!...BIG DIFFERENCE!

    I am sorry that I upset you Mike..truelly! But? That was then! This is now! When would you like to get together? My private E-mail is:"slawrencepiscean@hotmail.com" Feel free to contact me...anytime.

    Please don't take it that way. Seriously. There is no doubt you do go work. But face it you were buried when you did the uniform and some of it is lacking.

    Just want to resolve this. But some of it I am afraid it not good.

    You clearly don't even remember, you even offered to fix what was off, AFTER C3. That was great. NO problem. It's just a costume. I got by.

    BUT I paid almost $1000 for that uniform and it should be fixed.

    Then, you just started ignoring me. What else can I do?

    Three times we went on about this and you kept giving me email addresses. I would send emails showing what was wrong or needed change and you just ignored me.

    What now?

    Make me a proper black hat that matches my uniform, then we'll talk.

    Otherwise it's all hot air.

    Yes I was! I was BURIED in trying to fix my reputation with the people on this very site. Yes! I was a bit over burdened...I am sorry if my "Mental State" at the time reflected itself badly in your costume.

    I was most probably functioning on some sort of weird "Auto Pilot".
    Which usually happens when I am really strung out! My work may have suffered because of it. Sometimes it is difficult to be objective of my own work. I will have to take your word for it.

    You paid me $ 1,000.00???? WOW! Can I get your private E-maill address Mike? I won't "Ignore you" anymore! Please?

    Is your uniform Black Wool? Or is it Black Cotton Canvas? Forgive me..but?

    It's been along time. I barely remember even seeing you at my place I shared with Max. Allot has happened to me since that time...and it hasn't all been good.

    My memory is a little fuzzy.

    Fix what was "Off"? Okay...I'm gonna have to ask you for some more patience in talking me thru all of this. I seriously have NO memory of this at all...what do you want me to do? What needs fixing Micheal?

    You paid for a "Green Imperial Officer's Uniform", and a Black one too"?
    Have you received either of these costumes from me?

    Plus? I take it...you are wanting another "First Contact" Uniform too?

    WOW! So? Can I see you? Or is that not possible?

    My old E-mail address was on Mark Dickson's computer,in an effort to keep him from reading my private mail? I had to cancel that account, and create a new one.

    I haven't had an E-mail from you in...I don't even know how long.

    It wasn't so much a matter of ignoring you Mike? I haven't received any mail from you in...at least 4-years...that I know of.

    Hot Air? Uh...all right.

    Okay, I'll help you remember.

    I bought the First Contact costume. It was billed as the most accurate to the original.

    It didn't fit, it smelled bad and the clearly not accurate as I and other presented in the original buy thread.

    So you agreed to do another costume for me instead. For an additional $350. Fine, I paid it.

    The new costume was to be the Black Officer Uniform in time for C3.

    It was done. but there were problems. but it was wearable. So I took it with the promise it would be fixed.

    Then for whatever reasons you went missing. I don't care or want to know why. It's none of my business and I don't care.

    So here is how we'll work it if you really want to make good.

    Make my hat first. If you can accomplish that, you can fix the tunic.

    One step at a time.

    11/29 was the last time he was on.

    I have no dog in this fight and you Mic and Reaper should figure how much time to give him to make things right.

    After that He needs to be banned
