Cost : $320.01
Time Taken : 4 months so far

I decided to cosplay Bones as I relate to him in many ways. The tunic pattern was purchased from whilst the tunic fabric is the actual screen used velour which was very difficult to get hold of and the insignia is also the original. The tricorder is an art asylum product.

Wig Arrived (Posted 14th October 2013)

Quite quickly however I tried it on and it will need a lot of work done to get it to look like McCoy's hair however it is really good quality and the perfect color so I am determined...

The fringe part is the wrong way round which is pissing me off...

Have an event... (Posted 12th October 2013)

Booked my tickets for the official star trek concert next year so I will be debuting this outfit there and I will be possibly getting the real boots for my cosplay!

Pattern Arrived! (Posted 10th October 2013)

Just now :3 The instructions are on a disk which I find a little odd however I managed to convert the .doc file to .pdf and the instructions seem simple enough. Now I need to go and find the 'sparkly' fabric.

Wig (Posted 7th October 2013)

Bought the wig just now i'm so excited!

Pants (Posted 26th September 2013)

Bought the pattern for the pants today!!!

Beginnings (Posted 9th August 2013)

Starting the tunic today. I have done some tests with some scraps of velour so I can get a good idea of my aims.
Sewed the most of the bodice and will add sleeves tomorrow.

Cut fabric (Posted 6th August 2013)

See photo....
Trying to be careful since bear it in mind I am using the actual TOS fabric.

Collar Fabric (Posted 5th August 2013)

Found the right stuff for the collar...
Last night I traced out the pattern.

Rank Braid, Fabric, Badge (Posted 8th July 2013)

Bought the stuff I need for my duty uniform shirt I just hope it arrives before I go on vacation ;;u;;

I'm also having a hard time finding a wig. I'll probably get it from Amphigory though u_u.

Tricorder!!!! (Posted 26th June 2013)

It arrived today so I am going to take a photo soon.
