ENGAGE-ING

The first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation had some offbeat costume concepts. Oh, that’s right. Jumpsuits are the future. Really? We’re super glad they moved away from that. (If they hadn’t, we’d never have the Picard Maneuver, plus going to the bathroom while cosplaying would be much more difficult.) Oh, and remember the skant? It’s baaaacccckkkk!

This ST:TNG skant uniform is perfect for cosplay in warmer climates and more relaxed atmospheres (social, that is, and not planetary). Although the manufacturer cut this for a female body, we all know they were worn by both genders, so guys, check the size chart to see if it’ll work on you. Wear it alone or with pants, as in the later seasons. Pair it with some black boots (knee-high for women, short for men), and you’ll be equally ready to hit the dance floor or the bridge.
