About this Costume
- Construction Details:
I used fossshape to make the base shape and then covered it in velvet & vinyl trim that I made and custom colored by hand. All the straps/belts were made from the same hand custom colored vinyl The accenting was all resin cast by me with a custom mixed casting powder color, that I shaped especially for this top, & some rhinestones for accenting.
I made the bottoms from matching velvet, specialty spandex, custom hand-colored vinyl, and lined it all with cotton fabric. The strap was attached by hand. I patterned out the bottoms from scratch while watching the episode.
♥~Belt & Skirt~♥
Made from the custom colored vinyl fabric, a cotton backing, and a specialty spandex. The decorations were more of my custom cast resin pieces that I shaped to sit on the belt.
♥~Green Bodysuit & Gloves~♥
Made entirely by Sephygoth with their awesome bodysuit making techniques! ♥♥♥ I installed the zipper & painted the nails with a custom mixed nail-polish color for both of us.
The foundation was custom mixed by sephygoth to match the bodysuit fabric. I custom mixed the green eyeshadows & shading powder that I needed for Navaar.
I made it from my custom cast resin pieces, made to match the rest of the ones used through out the outfit. I shaped them and then connected them together to form the piece.
In the episode you never see her feet so we had to guess. I decided to design & make some anklets to go over and fancify her feet.
I picked a simple pair of black stiletto heels that I already owned, since we never see her feet in the episode.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I've been into Star Trek forever (my dad is a self proclaimed blue-blooded Trekky) and I used to sneak out of bed when I was little to watch the various series with him when they were on broadcast TV. Now I'm finally a second generation Star Trek costumer; my dad made a science officer costume with a phaser back in the 1970's for the conventions he attended then.
When I saw the episode "Bound" of Enterprise I loved the Orion Slave Girls, they were just so amazing and the episode really developed the Orions in an amazing way (I won't spoil it, since I know most people never got the chance to watch Enterprise due to the screwy schedule it had.)
Navaar was my fave in the episode and when Sephygoth insisted I looked like her, it was decided that we would do the two main girls from the set of 3 sisters.
