Here’s my latest — finally had a few minutes to finish this! The Empath. I used Kirk’s tortured form for best dramatic impact. I always thought the Vians were just a rip-off of the Talosians, but Gem is still a Gem!
A bit late in the day, (been out visiting for most of it!) But I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas day, and I wish you all the best for a Happy and Restful New Year! Thanks for following my silly little blog, and I’ll have more fun in store for you coming in 2015!
Love, Blessings, and Live Long and Prosper, Therese xo
I love this cool, youthful image of Spock from “The Cage” by artist karracaz Just think, he played Spock for the first time 50 years ago! Aren’t we lucky?
This week marks the 35th Anniversary of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. (and let the franchise begin!) Here’s a rare shot of Leonard and Bill at the premiere that was held in (interestingly enough) Washington D.C.! The tuxes really reflect their personalities; Disco Bill is in his ruffles while Suave Leonard in in his traditional, fine tailored threads. Marcy and Sandy look sweet too!
True, the movie may have not been the best, but I’m glad they had a fun night!
For this weeks fan art, I found some more wonderful work by Gary Anderson (a.k.a. darkwing75) on DeviantArt. Gary has created dozens of these stylish images of sci-fi and fantasy characters in his signature fashion plate style. (I’m guessing there’s a template he uses). Here’s his take on some of the best Star Trek ladies from Earth and Elsewhere. I especially like Isis from Assignment: Earth. As I costume-fanatic, all I can say is Mr. Anderson, more please!
Sadly, but understandably, Mr. Nimoy doesn’t do conventions in person anymore, but isn’t it nice to know that the Trek technology has caught up with reality and now he Skypes! Who wouldn’t want to Skype with Grandpa Leonard? Here’s some candids of him at recent events, including a shot of him enjoying his doppelganger (and trekkerscrapbook follower) Paul Spock Vegas Forest! (Hey Paul, want to do an interview? 🙂 )
Just like the old days, eh? 😀
