Star Trek Couples Costume!

P1140146It’s totally fun to dress up, especially when attending geeky events such as free comic book day (May 3rd!) at your local comic store and especially when cons are happening in the area! Last year my husband and I attended the 2nd annual Rose City Comic Con in Portland Oregon and took part in free comic book day at near by store but agree it would have been extra fun to dress up when attending in a costume of our favorite characters! When I got to thinking about couples costume I right away began thinking like a true Trekkie and pondered whom I thought the best trek couple is. I will admit I’m a little limited as I’ve only seen the original Star Trek and none of the other seasons. There’s not a whole lot of romance going on in the original other than those occasional moments with Spock and Nurse Chapel. So I’ll just have to come back to that thought!

But speaking of couples costumes, I recently found some great Star Trek themed ones over at Wholesale Halloween Costumes.com. If you favor the original classic series, you can pick from either a red or blue color scheme for guys and girls. Sizes range from xs-medium for the ladies costume and medium to extra large for men. Even though I usually wear a x-small, I opted to get a woman’s small sized costume ( fits most sizes 4-6). I am glad of my decision because the costume fits nicely without being too big or too small. The length of the dress also hits maybe about an inch above my knee and that’s fine! I’m only 5 foot two inches tall so I’m a bit on the short side.P1140125

When I wear the Star Trek Classic Adult Red Dress Couples Costume out and about, I plan to pair it with black leggings and boots. I prefer being comfortable and modest when wearing any costume and this one totally allows me to do so! I like that there are accessories available such as a phaser or knee high boots to finish the look off! Though the costume packaging says it’s a Uhara character costume, you can freely role-play that you are just another crew member of any particular starship if you so choose to be more creative!

The quality of the costume is quite impressive. I found the polyester material comfortable to be worn against my skin. The dress isn’t see-thru at all and doesn’t pick up any unwanted undergarment lines. The gold lining on the cuffs and the Star Trek insignia is wonderful touch that makes the costume seem that much more genuine to those worn on the Classic Star Trek series. The costume does recommend washing it by hand. I’ve yet to do so but will update my review once I do to let you know if the colors bleed or not.

Overall, the only thing missing now is to purchase a male crew member costume for my husband so we can match when attending events and going to themed gaming extravaganzas as well as costumes parties! You know, so we can boldly go where no man (or woman!) has gone before! The quality of the costumes are fantastic for the cost too! I would highly recommend other Trekkies to check these out. And if Star Trek isn’t your thing, there are lots of other costumes to browse where I got this one from!
