While we head towards Axacon, and focus all of our energy there, I am cleaning up my new home and setting up the collecting/sitting room, where I have been storing so many of my costumes as they come in from various sources. So as I packed away some of these costumes, I started messing with my JJ Klingon costumes, as I recently got in a replica Worf Baldric.
Now while we used the General Chang costume I own for Richard Hatch as Kharn, the new Klingon character Mor’o, who is Kharn’s mentor, will wear a different costume.
Now costuming is one of my passions, and what we had planned for Axanar the feature film was truly awesome. The concept sketch above is a glimpse of that (and I am writing an article on Klingon costuming for the blog, so stay tuned).
But looking at the JJ costume, I really liked it. And I though, “What can we do with this costume?” so I took the tunic, a huge, foam jacket, echoing some Russian WWII great coat.
So this is the basic garment (I am not showing the entire costume for a reason).
And throw a Klingon Worf Baldric on and you get this:
Or reverse the Baldric and you get this:
The first sets the Baldric against the grain of the garment, and the second goes with the grain. I know which I like, but what do you think?
Overall, I love mixing and matching and creating unique ideas for the Klingons. After Axacon I will write a blog on the subject.
