The Expendable Yeoman (2-in-1) Costume

So I'm not dead. Just stupid busy from my 'real' job and exhausted. Bleh! Hopefully, I will be able to work on projects, post them, and catch up on reading some of my favourite crafting blogs soon.
...
At any rate, finally got some pics of my Expendable Yeoman (2-in-1) Costume...

"My first away mission, with Captain Kirk no less! So excited!"

Skant from pattern acquired through  roddenberry.com Yes, I splurged/was lazy. Just a warning, they ask for far, far more fabric than you need to make this outfit and it is MAD short (I am not tall or long in the torso, either). Supposedly, a 1 1/2" hem is allowed, but I had to add fabric in order to hem it at all.

In-Progress Shots of Accessories:

 Tricorder Purse out of foam (obviously this sort of construction is not really a skill of mine), after assembly before spraying with plastidip (got the idea from the awesome work of Mistress of Disguise Check out her blog-she has mad costuming skills!) I used this papercrafting template I found online for scale (altered for a flap-purse design instead of a true-to-form tricorder prop), found in this forum (pdf link on page 3)
Gore-laden ribs almost finished for Undead version of Expendable Yeoman Costume (just pin/baste gore patch onto uniform, alter make-up, and voila! Zombie/Dead Redshirt) I may have actually burned some velour for the overlay on the edges of the gore patch... with an open-flame in the sink ;-) Probably should not try that at home...

  1. Great job with the hair, makeup and accessories. You look like you just stepped out of Star Trek circa 1966!
    I went the cobble my own pattern together route, and considering how time-consuming and fussy it was to get right, I'm thinking just buying the pattern was a good decision. And those skants are crazy short on the show! Uhura always seems to be in danger of a wardrobe malfunction.
