While trawling through the web for Discovery communicator measures, I stumbled upon this forum and was intrigued by the projects presented here (especially finding an answer for the measures right away. ).
If you wonder, what the “Steam Trek” mentioned above is and what I do:
in short it’s simply a Steampunk universe of Star Trek. How that looks like you can see in the pics:
Obviously the first one shows our Steam Trek TNG, which were our first Steam Trek outfits done in 2014. TOS (see next post) we made for the 50th anniversary in 2016. And by my initial search you can guess, what is planned for 2018.
Though I loved to do DS9 or ENT next, with the release of Discovery the opportunity to do a Steam Trek cosplay of it early while the series just startetd (and probably even before the Anovos uniforms will be available ) was simply something we couldn’t miss.
Basically I’ve got the designs for all series uniforms and main props (comm, phaser, tricorder) including the classic and late TNG movies in Steam Trek variant already laid out, but since we need about approx. 2 years between a new set (props sometimes even longer) it will take a while untill it’s complete.
In general our Steam Trek mirror universe follows basically in clothing design a similar timeline of generations between the series as Star Trek does. Starting from the late 18th century till the early 20th.
Maybe a last remark on my “history”. I started prop and costume making 20y ago, in a “galaxy far, far away”. Though still doing some stuff in the scifi genre my main propmaking playground is Steampunk since 2010.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
