So, I started storyboarding the script this last week. One of the sequences I'm working on has a brief "Star Trek II" parody in it. For the sequence, I want to make some TWOK-style uniforms for the puppets.
I think the wrap-around tunics will be easy enough to simulate, but I doubt that I should use the Delta shield. I'd like something reminiscent for the insignia pin and the belt buckle, though -- and they should be as cheap as possible, since they'll be featured in about a minute of the finished film. Scale-wise, they'd have to be pretty small, too -- since most of the puppets have about 10-inch tall torsos.
Does anyone have any ideas what to do about all of the pins and belt buckles? I'd need five of whatever I decide to use.
