Star Trek - The Final Costume Frontier

Okay, we all know that people either like Star Trek or they are complete fanatics. So, I will preface this with a disclaimer: If you are a die-hard Star Trek fan and money is no object when it comes to your collectibles, go to the Anovos website and pre-order your Star Trek replica uniform now.

If, however, you like to party like it's 2387 and you want to look the part without spending a small fortune, we've got you covered! These Officially Licensed Star Trek® costumes really look authentic and will have you strutting the Starship Enterprise in style.

There are so many reasons to like this costume idea, but being able to say "Beam me up Scottie!" all night long tops them all... trust me, you won't get tired of it! It works as a good individual costume (pick your favourite!) or as a couple or group, just keep adding Trekkie's! Here is the range of Star Trek costumes available right now at Costume Box online:

Adult Star Trek Costumes
Captain Kirk, Scotty, Spock and Uruha are easily the most recognizable Star Trek characters. Besides starring in The Original Series from the 1960's, these chracters were the focus of the most recent Star Trek movie, it's really good, make sure you see it if you haven't already!

Star Trek Accessories
No Star Trek costume is complete without a Phaser, set to 'stun' and give Khan a taste of his own wrath! Uruha wouldn't be complete without her black patent leather boots, and a Spock without pointy ears? Meh!

Star Trek Essentials - the W5 to get you through the night:
  • Who? There are heaps of Star Trek characters, Wikipedia has one of the most definitive lists organized by series. The original cast is probably the most recognizable, but in case you want to geek-out: Wiki Star Trek Characters. Not sure what character suits you best? Try out this Star Trek Personality Test!
  • What? In case you thought Star Trek was a  movie, there have actually been 5 Star Trek TV series: The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise. There have also been 11 feature films, including the recent Star Trek, 2009, and there is a 12th movie in the works at the moment! You'll need to know which ship you belong to, study this: Starships.
  • Where? The United Federation of Planets was founded in 2161, duh, and has a population of 985 billion people. I wonder how many of them are on Facebook? In any case, here's a map of your new home! The attention to detail of Trekkie's never ceases to amaze me!
  • When? Here's a Star Trek timeline to help keep yourself straight on which Stardate lines up with which series, characters, and starships. Or you can just keep saying "Beam me up, Scotty!" That's what I would do!

By the way, if you are going as Spock, you've got some work to do...

2. Nail the Vulcan greeting:

If you find yourself mysteriously drawn to this world once you've donned the Star Trek uniform, and you can answer most of these Star Trek Trivia questions properly, you might want to investigate attending the Star Trek Convention in Vegas!
