    I have to admit, I was never really into cosplay. But my first visit to The Star Trek Original Series Set Tour and meeting William Shatner changed all that!
    I think I am ready for my next visits!
    I took a quick break from the Refits and work bench and took these photos.
    The Tunic was custom made for me using supplied accurate material to Murraymousie from EBay.
    The spring weave collar, delta shield and Captains Braids were obtained from Scott Nakada. Correct shoulder zipper.
    The Trousers come via another vendor from EBay they even have the sparkle material and “seat”.
    The Boots are a work of art and come via Durans shoes in Las Angeles.
    They were custom made to my specifications including the height( every boot I see on a cosplayer look way too short for The original series, I made sure my boots were the correct height).
    Also the ANOVOS first season equipment belt with a WAND Phaser 1 and my John Long communicator build.

    Looks fantastic! And you're right out of central casting for the guy who would be found with his neck sn-ERR, or perhaps the guy using his phaser to influence the destiny of a prewarp civilization.

    Was something in the costume incomplete when you last went to Saratoga and shared pics?

    P.S., nice red axe visible in the mirror!!

    Looks great.

    Be careful with those boots, I have a pair with Cuban heels and fall off them more than I'd care to admit, lol.

    That's truly impressive.

    Not only the detail and accuracy, but even very good costumes don't often result in that effect. Your body shape, stance and look are...spot on !

    You look like you're in a parallel Earth TOS episode.

    You must feel like a fucking boss when you're wearing all that. Magnificent.
