Lieutenant Bertheussen (original character) - Space: Above and Beyond





"We thought we were alone. We believed the universe was ours until one night in 2063 on an earth colony sixteen light years away. They struck! And now we're at war. My name is Lt. Colonel T.C. McQueen. I'm an In-vitro, a race of artificially gestated humans. I command a Marine Corp squadron ... the 58th. They call us the Wild Cards. We fight when called, in space, on land, and at sea. To lose this war means more than defeat. To surrender is to never go home. All of us must rise to the call above and beyond."

Heh, kind of a flashback cosplay from my younger days. When I was about 13 years old. A friend and I were hooked on the Space:AaB show. And because of the wonder that was the internet we got our filthy, geek hands on a bunch of stuff from the series, like the flight suits, dig tags, signature from one of the crew members, some ID cards, maps, and more! 8D

We (me and two friends) also got started on a fanfic from the series, called 'The New WildCards', where we wrote ourselves into the story. So the character I'm cosplaying is myself, and I'm now the right age for it aswell XD The fic can still be found somewhere online XD

Apparently I haven't grown much in size since those days (and luckily the flightsuit was a wee bit too big back then), so I still fit it! :D Thus I now want to take it out for a photoshoot. I also want to make the fictional M590 Assault Rifle for this. Also practise on SFX makeup.

Yey for bringing old shows back to life! XD

Looking good, you don't see many SAAB fans these days. If you need any info on SAAB costuming, visit this link: This group is currently making helmets and are working on the M590 Rifle.
