Lame title, I know, but it had to be done. At least I didn't use PON FARR-OCIOUS. It's a long walk, though it would have explained why LadySpock is looking a little sassier than usual.
This is for my Fashion & Lifestyle Illustration class. Each of us were assigned a different upcoming movie and had to create a related fashion spread using current runway fashion and female models. Luckily, I got Star Trek, which I secretly super-wanted in the first place. I immediately decided to draw a LadyKirk and LadySpock, so that was pretty easy. The flailing redshirts came later in the process, but they were still a lot of fun. Kirk and Spock are too busy looking hot to pay attention! And their crew is dying! Hilarious.
Obviously, I took some liberties with the ship's design and pulled some inspiration from the Star Trek: TOS too. For example, Chris Pine's Kirk seems to be wearing mostly grey and black in the movie, so I referred to William Shatner's mustard top instead. Oh, and I added bangles around their wrists instead of those rank braids that always reminded me of bad bricabrac.
Kirk and Spock are wearing Meadham Kirchoff and Alexander McQueen; Kirk has an additional Shipley & Halmos jacket and that black piece over Spock's dress is from Gucci. I think the redshirts are all wearing Fendi and Miss Sixty. If you're having some difficulty working with modern costuming, a good resource is Style.com. Just click through their runway photos; they're really fantastic. There's the option of sorting by model, so you can spend an entire afternoon staring at Jessica Stam and only Jessica Stam. I mean, if that's what you're into.
Also, hello to new visitors from the blogs of Rafael Soldi and Warren Ellis, both fine, beautifully creative gentlemen that deserve your fan-love and attention. Hello, hello.
