    Here my first pictures of the costume in progress: the utility belt.

    For this first piece I have used a police gun belt (rumor has it this is the exact same belt they used in the movie) and the holster from the Playmates Mission Belt toy set. The phaser and communicator I purchased individually. (The phaser and communicator that come with the Mission Belt do not function.) I also added some belt keepers next to the phaser. Mine matches the movie version very very closely! I just need to paint the back plate of the communicator holster black and it will be finished.

    I am still working on the pants. Once I have them finished I will post pictures of them.

    Oh ... my ... God. That's an awesome belt, AstroSmurf. I was at Target earlier today and saw the communicator and the phaser collectibles. They were on sale (maybe tomorrow I'll pick up the phaser).

    ^ It was not my intention to tease. :D I was just thrilled at how well it turned out.

    And I don't know about genius... I am just OCD and can't help but get the details right. If I didn't, it would keep me up at night. :rommie: (I am so not kidding.)

    ^ I have no idea. One is so fairy-like while the other is kinky kitty. One likes hats and the other likes strapping unsuspecting men into her "comfy chair". Both are completely and utterly HOT so I can see why that could have confused you. :devil:

    Wow, nice Borg outfit. It took me four years to scrounge up enough leather for my Halloween 2003 costume. :lol:

    Very nice. I am trying to make a utility belt that can hold the TOS phaser and communicator. It's been proving...difficult.

    ^ What are you finding difficult? Is it the holsters?

    The TOS uniform didn't have holsters--they put big Velcro strips on the back of the comm and side of the phaser, and stuck them on to matching strips on the pants.

    ^ That is correct but he may be doing something special. For all we know he could be mixing universes/timelines/genres/characters. :bolian: I went to a party once where some dude dressed up as a Klingon Blues Brother. It was awesome. You never know how people are going to mix and match. (And I for one don't want to squelch anyone's creativity! It makes things much more fun.)
