Captain Kirk

First Worn: Costume College 2017


Oscar and I have been talking for YEARS (literally, we’re almost at 20 years of dithering about it) of doing a Trek uniform from each series. So 2017 I said hey let’s just start at the beginning! We’ll pick a con we go to (in this case, Silicon Valley Comic Con) and do a new set each year. We went back and forth about how accurate we wanted to be and settled on “Medium accuracy,” bought fabric together, I patterned our shirts, we got up to a four person crew for the con, got real excited, and it totally fell through. So when trying to come up with something easy and comfortable for Costume College I decided to finish mine (which, actually I made as a test because while I did want to be Kirk eventually, that’s not who I was supposed to be on the bridge crew!).
