Eep thank you!!! ٩(●˙▿˙●)۶…⋆ฺ I love to do star trek cosplay!! And my blog is about 50/50 Thor and Star Trek. But…
I don’t just like Thor…..
I love Thor…
I AM THOR.
cigarettesandshame asked: Your uhura is flawless! How did you make that costume?
Hey THANK YOUUUU! *w*
How to make a reboot star trek cosplay? Well……
It’s all booooughttttt.
Got it from Anovos, google it. The sell replica outfits and they do tons of Star Trek uniforms. They’re expensive though =\ I gotta get a few decent wears out of this to make it worth while.
My measurements are 33-25-35 but I put on a push up bra for this to make my butt look smaller so I’m more like a 34/35-25-35 in this. I bought a size small. The sizing is tight except for the butt so use that as a reference I guess… although I do have slack around my middle but that’s because I have a small ribcage. Anyway, I guess I could have taken it in but I didnt lol.
Anovos recently updated the dress to include a zipper which I’m mad about because mine is 1st generation pull on/off and pretty much needs a second person to help me undress y_y oh well, it was worth the money for the quality and accuracy since they have the screen-accurate colour/delta pattern/seams.
I got mine in the limited edition STXI bluray that came with the whole set, but they sell them on ebay or at anovos or any other place that has trek memorabilia.
I went to the actual designer of the earrings, Alexis Bittar. I have a good friend who collects their stuff and so she knew a wonderful sales lady who helped me. Look them up! The actual “Pod” earrings Zoe wore in the movies are elusive but they had a similar style called “Lucite Sliver” in that were similar so I got those is silver and gold.
I have red ones too but they didn’t have it in Lucite Sliver so I tracked down “Drop” earrings which had the same cut of lucite in red and and modded them by prying off the gold.
I dyed my hair to get the look. Originally when I wore this I had very long hair that just needed a few extensions. (I got human hair ones and dyed them). I needed my sister’s help for styling some of this since I’m crap at doing hair. I recently cut a lot of my hair off though, so when I wore it again the extensions were really heavy and the ponytail fell after a few hours. I think I’ll sew my extensions into a simulation of a ponytail clip and use them like that for next time.
The actual model they used is sold out/impossible to find now (they were DKNY), so I used the “Teva Afton” boot in 2 sizes up so I could get 4 inches of lifts in there to be ballerina height like Zoe… These boots are knee height, so I folded over the tops of the boots 2 inches and hand-sewed them down so they would be the correct height. This makes the boot tighter so it depends what your calf measurement is.
I think they’ve come out with a new model that is shorter though, which would’ve helped… lmao.
*checks*… yeah they did. “Teva Capistrano.” I’d’ve bought this model if it had come out !!!! dammit
To finish the look I also bought a reboot phaser replica off ebay.
Thats it I think. Undergarments included dance tights and a spandex underbust leotard to help prevent riding up (since the dress is made out of jumbo spandex). And boot shafts like to get baggy when you wear an unnatural amount of lifts in there so I shoved two small ‘pillows’ I made in each boot to fill them out. I didn’t wear fake eyelashes but Zoe did so maybe you wanna do that. And don’t forget the most important thing— winged eyeliner!!
Anyway this is just what I did
hope this helps

jellystick asked: 24 - 32 my dear captain ( ' u ')/
*HOLDS YOU TO MY GOLDEN CHEST* You should be aware that I adore you and that is the only reason I’m not kicking your ass for giving me 9 questions to do.
24. Favorite style of clothing
I’m not really well versed on fashion and style names but if I could go out looking like Esther Quek everyday I totally would. But at the same time I love gaudy 90s inspired fashion too. My wardrobe is all Guess and J Crew though. My typical look is tight ass jeans and a leather jacket.
25. Ever done a prank call?
I most certainly have. I grew up with the Simpsons and Bart as an example!! You KNOW I’ve called for “Amada Huggenkiss” before.
26. … wait a minute there’s no 26..??
27. Meaning behind my URL
My screename is Glay,shamelessly taken from the name of an old jrock band that I was obsessed over waaaay back in the day. (think 15 years ago). Anyway, sometimes that’s taken so I use glayish or feelinglayish as backups =)
28. Favorite movie
tough call… how can you make me choose!??! My go-to answer is The Matrix because it totally changed be. But if you wanna go since childhood then definitely My Girl. Most recently I gotta say Rush did it for me like crazyyyy
