There's this girl I know who really, really wants to come as a vulcan to the next con we're all going to. I know it's an anime con, it doesn't really matter. She's perfect for it, actually- tall, slim, arched eyebrows, black hair.

But why, Leeksoup, are you telling us this? you must be asking. Well, this is why. The cheapest Vulcan priestess robe either of us could find- ANYWHERE- is $3,500.

WHY.

It's not gold-plated, it isn't studded with precious gems! It's brown cloth!... but I digress. Does anyone know where you can buy one online for cheaper? Or better yet, anyone know the pattern for making one myself? I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

Do you have a reference image for what you're looking for?

I'm not sure if that's a male or female garment, but it's at least close.

Why don't you commission it ? (Or take a look through pattern books - sorry, from the tiny reference I can't really tell at all how it's constructed)

It looks like the $3,500 you found was for an ACTUAL USED ON THE SHOW ROBE - not a costume re-creation.

That particular Robe is one of Mr. Spocks. It is from The Voyage Home.

It is pretty simple to make,all you need is a robe pattern,get the cream colored linen or a cotton,or raw silk fabric.

If you cannot make it yourself? contact me and I will give you some information. I do not want to spam the forum ;)
