Hey all,

I have the opportunity to buy a complete Uniform that was used at Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas.  It includes tunic, fur undershirt, pants, boots, collar, wrist braciers, gloves, sash, holster, disrupter, badges, the whole shot along with the headpiece with hair.

Problem is that neither of us have a accurate value on what all of this is worth.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

An older post on this site mentions that Star Trek The Experience auctioned off some surplus costumes a few years ago.  A shirt went for $50, a "uniform" went for $80.  Another post commented that a hand-made suit (made by a costumer for you) would run around $300.  I personally think that $300 would be reasonable for something like this.

Be sure to check into their refund policy before committing yourself. It won't do you any good at all if it does not fit you very well, especially if you are going to be giving combat demonstrations in it. It will have to be loose enough to move in and tight enough to keep its shape. Once completed, alterations on such an outfit are next to impossible.

Don't forget that the headpiece must also fit you well and *stay put* during maneuvers. If possible, see to what extent you can re-paint the headpiece to match your own skin color and complexion. Few things ruin a costume more quickly than having your face clash with the rest of your head.

If you can get a good fit, I'd say that $300 is a bargain for the complete package. Even without the headpiece. Let us know if you decide to buy, and how well the costume "works".
