House of TrekBBS Uniform Design Contest

I have created a place holder uniform for the House of TrekBBS I am not really happy with.

For that reason I have decided to have a uniform design contest.

Create a KDF uniform for The House of TrekBBS.

Only two requirements:
1. No C-Store components, it has to be doable with just standard parts.
2. Similar to the current fed uniform it has to have a TrekBBS color scheme.

We will vote on the winner when all entrys have been made.

You can post a screenshot here as your contest entry here.

Winner will get a rare surprise from the fleet bank (on fed side)

Re: House of TrekBBS Uniform Design Contest

Here's my stab at it, keeping the same theme/colors. Male variant would be similar, but with the spikier shoulders, wider sash, and generally not configured for a small green girl...

Re: House of TrekBBS Uniform Design Contest

Both of those look nice.

Are the Orion shoulder pads an option for non-Orions? I don't know as Jasmine is an Orion and Joachim has never worn shoulder pads.

I would suggest that the veteran cape be an optional choice for whatever design is chosen.

Re: House of TrekBBS Uniform Design Contest

Fair point, I don't know. I've only got the one KDF toon, and she's Orion, so can't say. Thought I was picking common options. Which was sorta annoying, as I like a couple pieces of the veteran costume gear (i usually use the cape and shoulder pads from that set), but wanted to pick common gear available to all.

Re: House of TrekBBS Uniform Design Contest

Orions have always been a bit different and probably need their own variant.
Veteran Cape should be pissible, problem with that is, it only works with the veteran shoulder pads which is hardly customizable and may not work well with the final result.
That said, Klingons have always been known to wearore customized uniforms then Starfleets, mostly through sashes and stuff. As long as it fits our theme and still is conform with the fleet visuals I see no problem there.

Re: House of TrekBBS Uniform Design Contest

Well then, if you go with my design, i reserve the right to tweak the shoulder pads for non-Orions

I only had the one KDF model to work with, so had neither a male nor a Klingon to try these things out on. Still think the rest came out pretty snazzy. Was trying to make it look less generic-Klingon than the usual design, so we don't get mistaken for NPCs

You can use your bridge officers as well for other races/genders.

Re: House of TrekBBS Uniform Design Contest

Fair enough, was tired and didn't think of that. Either way, think you get the idea of my design. If we end up going that direction, I'll work the variants out.

Re: House of TrekBBS Uniform Design Contest

Still back of napkin, but here's a rough crack at a male Klingon equivalent of the Orion female uniform idea. Would obviously tie them together slightly better if they were going final, so between this and that one, you get the gist

Nice, but did you intend for the male and female to have different wrist guards?

Yeah. The spikey wrist guards aren't available for females (or maybe they're Gorn only).

Also realised the boot colours are inverted. My prefered colour scheme is the female boots.

Re: House of TrekBBS Uniform Design Contest

So far I already have a favorite. Of course I won't tell which one.
But keep em coming. I think we still have lots of possible options.
