Science Officer

Season 1&2

Star Trek

Last Updated: 11-11-2011


I hadn't planned on doing this for a long while. But my hubby came home from work after stopping at Starbase Columbus with his Halloween costume. He wasn't opposed to me going with him, costume wise, so we went back to the store.

I picked up the Rubies Science Dress. I removed the ribbon on it and replace it with some gold rickrack since I can't afford the replica rank right now. I also lowered it to the correct distance up from the cuff. They had it up too high. Other than that it's great.
I also picked up a TOS Communicator. I figure why have a uniform and be on an away party without the communicator? For now I'm going to borrow hubby's science tricorder since he bought a geological one when we went back.
I have some tall black boots that have silver buckles on the sides. They'll have to do until I can get some appropriate ones or make some boot covers.
I've done some research and found out that the belts they wore, both sexes, were Velcro! I was originally led to believe that the women's and the security belts were 4" wide. Turns out the women's are only 2" wide. So I'll just take the existing belt and make it two. I'll hopefully figure out some way to add a pouch for my cell phone on the inside of it.
I also bought some Danksin Dance Team/Cheer Trunks after seeing them pointed out on Starfleet 1701st. The color almost matches and they'll keep me from worrying about the skirt's length.

Eventually I know I'll wear it to a convention. Then I'll shorten the skirt to an accurate length and get matching 'panties'. I'll also invest in a wig. I do not have enough hair on my head to do even the simplest of hairstyles seen on that show. I figure I'll get the Ferrari in maroon from Arda Wigs and my friend and I'll have fun!

I'm calling this the season 1&2 uniform because of the cut. And because I've got an accurate season 3 from ANOVOS.
