Commander Shepard: The idea was to fashionize her and I knew I had to play with her armor if I was going to make a dress. I thought structured vs. sheer. There’s a part of me that hates designing garments that a woman can’t wear underwear with and there’s a part of me that says fuckit, it’s just a painting. I’m thoroughly happy with how her dress came out and I’m fully aware her legs are a little short. It’s my biggest obstacle. Shortened legs… oye.
Picard and Janeway: Future fashion for these two. No Sisko because the requester didn’t request him. I’m in love with Janeway’s dress which I feel is actually very contemporary and on trend if not past trend. I wanted to keep her classy as all hell and age appropriate without sacrificing attractiveness and sensuality. The neckline was a callback to the Starfleet uniform as are the colors of each captain’s respective outfit. The idea of beading fading off to shear is a design element I go to in my head a lot. I think it would make for a beautiful garment. Sensible heels, of course. Picard was more of a challenge as I don’t feel he would be a frivolous dresser but I also wanted to have fun with him. I thought it would be best to forgo any modern suit adornments and go with something different.
Silver Sable: We wanted Bond-esque spy superstar feelings to come from this piece. I turned to the 60s spy thrillers for the overall look of her outfit and this piece. It’s a bit of a redesign and a fashionization. Her original outfit reeks of 80s tackiness and I’m sure many people have a fondness for it (myself included) but she deserved an update. Oddly enough, I kept it throwback to make it modern. Khaki slacks and a turtlenecked cable knit sweater with a heavy top coat. She feels almost like an MGS villain to me. I think she looks badass and like she can kick ass. People have said this piece has a Batman the Animated Series kind of look to it. Had to have the Wildpack in there as well.
Let me know what you guys think!
