Okay - so, a few months ago, a friend of mine asked me to go to a Star Trek convention with her... and she wasn't even planning on dressing up! I took it upon myself to decide that we were going to and sewed us each a dress.
Now, for all of you hardcore trekkies out there - I did make these longer than they were in the show on purpose. I didn't exactly want anything hanging out of anwhere. Haha.
What ended up being amazing about the trip - we arrived late (due to horribly wrong directions) and missed pretty much the entire function. However, two of the awesome people working there were able to get us into a room with Spock himself for a picture! <3
Okay. And the pictures:)
First - the inspiration!
My character - Mira Romaine:
And her character, Helen Noel:
Me and my dress:)
Both of us - she is a lot taller than me! Haha.
I am no hairstylist, but I tried to get them close to the inspiration characters!
My wannabe "bouffant" hairstyle... so hard to do!
Some action shots! Pardon the girl behind me and her bra hanging out. lol.
And us with Mr. Leonard Nemoy/Spock himself! SUCH a nice guy!
What do you think??
