Star Trek uniform for my boyfriend
As promised in the last post, I will now loose some words on my boyfriend’s formal uniform. The is an official pattern out which seems rather good (and not that expensive, I’ve seen worse). Unfortunately, we decided to use this pattern when it was already too late to order it from the US and receive it in time. So, I improvised! ;)
I found some great pictures with details on the internet, so I tried to copy most of them. For example the ribbed chest piece (although I was not able to replicate the shoulder piece as well):
You might have noticed already that my boyfriend is dressed with silver instead of golden trims. The explaination is easy: We did not find pretty trim in gold. But the silver looks good as well, right?
The pants were also made by me and this time fit much better than the last ones. My boyfriend has a small waist but huge muscles everywhere else. Which equals wide legs with a tight waist or adaptations to the pattern I only ever know for women. Well, at least the trims make it look much more male and military:
Another detail of the trims and his communicator badge. His first try with fimo (mine looked much worse)!
But the best part of the uniform is the lining. He chose it himself and I bought enough for a dress for me. It is teal with ombré effect and lace print! Almost too pretty to hide:
