Have I completely lost my mind? (Ruffles & Trekkie-ness)

So... I've gone ruffle and lace mad in the pursuit of my next Steampunk Croquet outfit. The underbust waist-corset has been cast aside for the epic employment of ruffles. It's funny, coming from the girl who detested dresses well into her teen years and loathed tights to the very core of her being. You shall soon see what precisely has me doubting my sanity.
Also, I believe I am taking a step I vowed never to approach, that of having a Trek costume in my repertoire. Okay, perhaps, a lie. I did make that Star Trek wrap-around uniform top...

[I have since adjusted this top so it's not so revealing. Yay! for hooks and eyes!]

At any rate, I think I've settled on a TOS skant for my Halloween costume. Probably red, because I lack originality (?)...
However, any beehive I can fanangle won't match Janice Rand's epic hairdo (a wig, I'm sure, but still, check out the weaved portion!).


  1. Even if it is a wig, that weaving is slick. I wish I had some talent like that with my hair.

    You know, that uniform dress is really cute. I kind of want one to wear all the time.

    I love your steampunk outfits so much - I can't wait to see the next one.

  2. I'm thinking a Star Trek uniform is kind of a wardrobe staple... Right? Or maybe I'm just saying that to make myself feel better about having one in my closet!
