Last year for Fan Expo I created 5 Star Trek - The Original Series skants for my lovely cosplay group of ladies! Inspired by my design adventures of converting 2D objects to 3D and vice versa, I decided to convert the Tricorder worn in the show into a "flat" purse!

Made from vinyl, holographic spandex, rivets and random materials for the embellishment details. The hardest part of this was screening the silver details on the vinyl. The paint didn't particularly like the vinyl and the butcher's paper I was using to make the outlines was not adhering properly or creating the seal with the fabric! Whewf. In the end it all worked out though Smiley So happy with this creation!

This is me fooling around during a shoot with the bag in action lol Smiley

I love it, I think it is a really cool bag to take. It made me smile that you were wearing red too. Smiley

My normal seems crazy, weird, freakish to other people. And that's ok. I dont want to be "normal". I'm not broken. I don't need to be "fixed".

I'm kinda a Spock fan and I could totally see myself at a convention in my blue shirt with this around my shoulder.

Live long and prosper.
