Last Saturday was the 1940s PEERS Ball, and my “crew” and I wore our 1940s Star Trek mashup outfits! (From left to right: Riker, Data, Troi, Red Shirt, Dixon Hill, Wesley, Dr. Crusher, and Geordi).
I was very worried that I couldn’t get the hair right, but with some tips from friends, a lot of foam curlers, and the magic setting lotion Lottabody I felt fabulous!
My hair was so fluffy you can’t see the vintage Bakelite dome earrings I’m wearing. They are mustard-colored and match the ring.
Here we are all so serious!
I had enough leftover fabric to give to Breanna so we could match! Her use of silver netting for Geordi’s visor was so clever!
Dr. Crusher made a dress and a coat!
Although Wesley was not so impressed by Mom.
Troi and sexy Riker got a little frisky!
Riker had to do the signature weird chair leaping!
And every away mission needs a Red Shirt!
All the ladies in our group made their own dresses from vintage or altered patterns. We had a wonderful time and I definitely want to wear my outfit again to Costume College!
