I have had numerous people tell me I look like Patrick Stewart when he played Captain Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Barb strongly suggested I get a Picard costume for the Halloween party last Saturday night. She dressed as “a generic alien woman”. She was correct to make the suggestion:

The number of complements and favorable comments I got were uncountable. They ranged from numerous guys merely saying, “Captain” as they walked past and multiple requests to beam us to some other location to, “I just wanted to say you totally rock in the Picard costume.” I even had “Bettie Page” sit on my lap for a while (she also sat on Barb’s lap so it might not have been entirely the costume).

  1. Tell you what though; most of the uniforms I see worn as costumes are fit looser than the ones on the show– they tended to wear ’em more stretch tight.

    Somebody liked to show off the bodies. When the original series came out, it was a bit risqué for the time. “To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before” took on the nature of a double entendre, as Kirk was making it with alien females from all around the galaxy (which, when you think about it, would be at least bordering on bestiality).

    • I told Barb about it after having problems with my “uniform” climbing up. I didn’t show her the video though. She’s been reading the comments and probably will check it out soon.

      Thanks for the link.

      • You’re welcome. And yes, you wear the costume as well as anyone I can think of, short of the original.

    • Except when we are mixing boomerite. Then it’s more like “make it juuuuust so. Now do that about a thousand more times.”

      Or, as the tailor captain said: “make it sew.”
