Star Trek cosplay?

I haven't seen many Star trek cosplays. Is anyone doing one? Or want to do one? Right now I am currently working on Christine Chapel or more formally known are Nurse Chapel or Miss Chapel from the original series. :3

I think Star Trek uniforms (from any one of the series, really) have been so overdone and are so common at sci-fi conventions that not a whole lot of people have a lot of respect for them any more. But I haven't seen any Nurse Chapel costumes despite being in the fandom for quite a long time, so with the new movie out, it just might make a come-back.

Well I haven't actually been to a sci-fi convention so I haven't really seen anyone with Star Trek cosplay. >> Yeah not a lot of people do Nurse Chapel costumes, though I have seen a mirror universe one... Any way I do hope it comes back! I would love to see people doing the uniforms in the new movie!

Star Trek costumes still show up at Sci-Fi and gaming conventions, but of course they're less common at anime cons. I see a decent number at Gen Con; I have a photo of CosPinay with a Spock from last year, and the year before there was a great duo from the original series in the costume contest.

If the new movie is good, I think you'll see a resurgence in costumes from ALL series of Star Trek. ^_^

I just LOVE the original series dresses! I bought one several years ago, and usually have at least one opportunity to break it out every year ^_^.

I'll have to upload some new photos of my non-vulcan look.

I can't wait to see your Nurse Chapel costume!

AVAAntares: Wow that's a great spock! I really hope to see new cosplay from the new movie.

~H~: Oh I love them too! Yours looks great! :3 Yeah, I can't wait to be Christine, though I'm pretty sure no one will recognize who I am cosplaying ... Oh well I just think being able to cosplay Christine will be fun. I adore her.~

Little-known fact: my very first costume ever was an Uhura dress.

I was just thinking of making a thread about this!

After seeing the new movie twice already, I'm definitely inspired. At some point, my bestest friend and I are making the robes that the Vulcan schoolkids wore. I'm really kicking myself for already having too much on my plate for Dragon Con! Maybe this can be my back up plan if I get frustrated with my armor and put it on hiatus for a few months (again).

I've had Spock on my list since January. I'm actually glad that work and travel has interfered with any progress I would otherwise have made, since I've seen how very different the new uniforms are from the Prime!uniforms.

I'm a little concerned about finding material that has the right pattern- the new shirts/dresses all have the little Starfleet arrowhead symbol as a pattern on them. Dx If I have to just purchase it ready-made I will, but I don't want it to be the generic Halloween costumeish one because those are really inferior- the material is far too shiny/thin and they lack the proper seams.

Mrrrr. Any help, people? D:

ETA: Ahahahaha! Spoke a bit too soon. x3

Found a fantastic uniform guide along with a basic pattern, but be forewarned: it only covers the mens' shirts.

It also has the delta pattern for the fabric, which is apparently super/heavyweight spandex. Faboo.

For mine, it's one of those fabrics with tiny holes in it (like one of those light t-shirts or games jersey). It kinda pass casual fan eyes but ya, it lack the tiny arrowhead symbol.
