Re: Really weird Continuity error. HUGE SPOILERS!
Also, T'Lar in The Search for Spock
wore quite a lot of makeup and a very elaborate headdress and robe. Some of that might have been worn solely because of the importance of the fal-tor-pan
ceremony held on Mount Seleya, but a lot of Vulcan women throughout the history of the franchise have had rather exotic and made-up appearances. They seem just as vain as Earth women even if their logical training and upbringing prevent them from expressing it.
Remember what cooleddie74 says, kids:
"Don't forget to have a Patrick Swayze Christmas!"
