A rarely-caught cosplay of mine due to the difficulty of applying my Bajoran nose prosthetic--Kira Nerys from Star Trek: DS9
This was a most trying cosplay to make. It took many tries for the jumpsuit to fit properly, not helped at all by my reticence to use any kind of spandex. By all accounts, the onscreen uniforms smelled awful, a common symptom of synthetics like spandex that don't breathe well. Mine is cotton and wears beautifully. For one reason or another I first made the jacket and pants separately, but I joined them later so the jacket wouldn't ride up under the belt. Don't blame me...most of the onscreen costumes worn by Kira were made in one piece, but it was shown multiple times that Bajoran military uniforms were composed of separate jacket and trousers. Probably the costume team had the same problem I had, thus the existence of multiple versions of the uniform! The belt is leather.
The photo was taken by the Arisia 2016 photo booth.
