Augment costumes?
 
Hi all! New here. Excited about possibly going to my first convention and looking for Augment costumes for a guy and a girl. Ideally we wanna go dressed like members of Khan's crew from Star Trek 2.

However, any other ideas for augment costumes are welcome.

We have looked online (searched for star trek costumes) but couldn't find any augment costumes.

Anyone have any idea where to look? Thank you in advance!

I had never heard that use of "augment" before. From the subject heading, I thought you were planning to put augmented reality costumes on everyone's smartphone, so you'd appear in costume only when viewed through a mobile device.

Wow, no. That's incredibly high tech. Basically we wanna dress up as Khan's crew. Any ideas?

The women in Khan's crew (from Space Seed) were dressed quite fashionably, I've seen open mesh club wear that looks somewhat like this, the women in the picture is actually wearing very little. No offense, but the girl in your pair would need a certain figure to pull that costume off.

Price wise they tend to be across the board, you might luck out. Check out places that sell club and disco outfits. You could also have one custom made. I've had good luck with seamstresses who work out of their homes, prices are really about what you'd spend in a store. Take the picture to one and get a quote.

The men's clothing look to be easier to obtain, a nicely fitted red jumpsuit, not overly snug. Add the trim pieces yourself (or again a seamstress). Phaser optional.

The costumes from the movie TWOK are just your basic "road warrior" crap, there's not really much distinctive about it. Regardless of how accurate you make it, you're going to have to tell people who you're dressed as. But that kind of goes with a lot of costumes at conventions.

Whichever way you go, post pictures here please.

here's a pretty good pic of Khan and company

if this is the look you're going for, it looks mostly like scraps of this and that.

Make sure it has ribbing - lots of ribbing - a common stylistic motif among Khan's people from Star Trek 2, the Augments from Enterprise (along with lots of random fabric tears) and the collar of Harrison's long coat in the latest film.

And I thought this was going to be about those silly torn clothes they wore in Enterprise.

Thanks. I looked it up in the wiki. The subject heading took me by surprise because none of the spin-offs connected with me. (I've watched lots of episodes, though.)

Still, AR costumes would be pretty wild. Maybe have them track to comm badges with QR-type codes on them. "Mundane" hotel guests would see a bunch of people in street clothes, but con-goers would see TREK!

Thank you for your reply! Actually, not trying to brag, but both myself and my GF have "a certain figure." We both workout obsessively and the whole "augment" idea was part of the point. :)

That's actually a very good idea. Thank you!

Right, kinda leaning toward TOS at this point.
