Hello all,
I couldn't decide whether to enter my own or my boyfriend's costume into the craft challenge, but ended up using his. But mine is also handmade and I'm really proud of it. The pattern was ridiculously hard to work with--nothing matched up, sizing was WAAAAAY off, and it has the oddest sleeve arrangement I've ever seen. But after a first, botched effort, I managed to put the whole thing together.

Here I am w/my honey. Excuse the stupid look on my face and the poofy belly, I was actually feeling really sick that night, but I stuck it out and went to three parties anyway!


And one more of me, at my friend's place, looking kind of wrecked


I hope you enjoy!
Live long and Prosper!

Where'd you get that pattern?!?!  My bf would be seriously in love with me (well, more in love than he already is) if I were wearing that when he got home from work.   Wink

I can't sew so it would probably be painful, but worth the effort.   Wink

I warn you that it is a really terrible pattern, though the directions are easy enough to follow. I do sew and it took me two tries to get the sizing right. I got it from Roddenberry.com which is the creator's estate website. They also have the triangle patches and braids, though I made my own braids because theirs were WAY too expensive.

You rock!  Thank you for sharing.  Do you think I would be better off trying to make my own?

Great costumes!  The dress does look a bit complicated, especially the neckline, but it looks great!
