enterprising-gentleman asked: Given that Star Trek has a history of pretty wild costume designs, for better or for worse, what would you say is your favorite outfit or uniform? Least favorite?
WHAT A GREAT QUESTION.
I think my favorite has gotta be the classic ladies’ uniforms (especially Chapel’s, something about that blue collar just makes it look so cute).
Cute and professional.
Other than that, I actually really love Andrea’s number from “What Are Little Girls Made Of?” It’s so sleek and looks great on her figure.
The women’s outfits from “A Taste of Armageddon” are also really lovely, and they look practical and without any sexualization.
Dunno what’s up with those men’s uniforms, though.
My least favorite has gotta be Zarabeth’s from “All Our Yesterdays”. Not even because the outfit is so bad, but because she’s wearing it on a freezing cold planet. Really, costume designers? I mean yeah, she had a fur coat over it initially, and when she takes it off she’s in a warm cave, but there is just really no logic to support this:
Or maybe all those horrible fake Native American outfits from “The Paradise Syndrome”. That’s one of the two episodes in the series I don’t talk about; I like to pretend those ones don’t exist.
That was a fun one!
