Since Halloween is this Thursday, I wanted to give all my Scrappers a treat! It’s always so nice to see Spock out of uniform, :-P, so I thought it would be fun to recall all the times Mr. Spock had to conceal his…non-conformity. Nimoy must have been the costumer William Ware Theiss’ dream, with a tall slender but muscled physique that made him the perfect clothes horse! Of course, if Spock came trick or treating, I’d give him the whole bowl of candy…then lock him inside for the night! Happy Halloween, Everyone!
10) I Wanna be a Cowboy–Not a full costume, but man, he’s totally working the gun-belt! (From Spectre of the Gun)
9) Off-Duty — We never see when or where Spock changed into this green utilitarian jumpsuit (and lace-up army boots) but I have no doubt that Leila gave him a good excuse to tear out of his duty blues!
8) The Slave – A simple look from Bread and Circuses. Spock wears grey trousers and nicely fills out the chain link sweatshirt of the other ‘Sun Worshipers’ of the 20th century Romans, but conceals his points under a sleek knit cap. Extra points for bare biceps.
7) Depression Laborer – Another knit cap, and they were sure lucky to find perfectly fitting ‘Mom’ jeans and shirts in Edith Keeler’s world! Extra points for the green pea coat. There’s got to be a gif of Spock tucking in his shirt somewhere! (The City On the Edge of Forever)
6) Just another Archon – (Return of the Archons) Spock always cut a dashing figure in a cape, and this is my favorite! The draped cowl perfectly frames his angular features. The sleekness continues with the sharp cut of his trouser and vest combo.
5) A Dealer of Kevas and Trillium: (Errand of Mercy) Another cape, but none of the natives had any problem with his ears here (perhaps because they were really just blobs of energy to begin with!) Bonus points for the lovely dark blue velvet, long skinny legs in tights, and for being a precursor to the 1980’s in furry dancer leggings!
4) A Platonian Serenader — (Plato’s Stepchildren) Could you imagine how Spock would have reacted as he was forced to wear this green toga? (Most illogical!) Spock’s gown was a lot more dignified than Kirks, and the lovely deep green set off his dark hair.
3) Nazi His Style — Spock got to wear two different Nazi uniforms in Patterns of Force, and although it’s true that the Nazi’s (here as Ekosians) were pure evil, they did have very sharp, beautifully tailored uniforms. (aside from Hitler’s name on the armband) Of course, Spock fans prefer when Spock isn’t wearing the top of uniform at all!–a whole 20 minutes of the episode.
2) A Pirate’s Life for Him— Now granted, this is the Spock from the alternate Universe,(Mirror,Mirror) but damn! Alternate Spock’s uniform was given even more elegant detail than Kirk’s golden vest; The tunic was a shiny blue single-breasted jacket, piped in gold with gold sash, and the cravat at the neck accented his magnificent goatee (Swoon!), giving the look an almost gi quality. Wish we could have seen a sequel episode with this Spock. Note the boots also are practically thigh-high, making the look even more sinister.
1) A Piece of That Action – Spock goes gangster, and the crowd raves — fortunately Kirk and Spock yet again are able to steal perfectly fitting suits (and shoes) from the natives on Sigma Iotia II! His pointy ears aren’t well disguised, but who cares? He’s dressed to kill! (Gotta say, Bill and Leonard look so beautiful in this episode, I could die!–I’d go crazy if these suits were still around and went up for auction!) (A Piece of the Action)
