My Weekly Spock: 2/25/13 That Seventies Spock…

Here’s some 1970’s Nimoy, in an era of some of the ugliest fashion ever (oh wait, it got worse in the 1980’s!) Nimoy mostly pulled it off!

I recall receiving this very postcard from the LNAF in 1974. Oh dear, that awful white stitching, the big button Henley insert, the huge collar! The seventies are in full swing!

As Paris, in a signature neckerchief (not ascot) that would become a Nimoy favorite on screen and off throughout the 70’s.

Nice and Nautical – the neckline reflects his perfect square jaw, and the ever growing sideburns wipe out the pointy Star Trek ones for good (at least until he had to shave them again in ’78)

As Tom Kovak in ‘Baffled’- with BIG collar — collars got bigger and bigger through the 70’s until they almost engulfed the suits they were under! No matter, he’s adorable here.

With Nichelle and George at a 1974 Convention. The ascot king strikes again -- this time in a fashion forward (for the time) incredible denim patchwork suit! I remember he wore this on his Mike Douglas show appearance, sorry I don't have full length shot of it! Love Nichelle's sweater here too.

It’s been a long week (with concerns about Sandy and such) So here’s some pretty for today! A while back, I discovered a site called Doll Divine which features multiple interfaces where one can create all types of pretty model ‘dolls’.   The one game on the site is  Erte Elegance where you create dolls in the style of the great Art Deco artist Erte (with lots of swags and fru-fru’s)  I started playing with the interface, and before long, I was recreating Star Trek’s most lovely women (Terran and Otherwise) in this most elegant style!  Here the first  several of my efforts –Vina from “The Cage” in her rags, damsel-in-distress gown, Talosian dress, picnic outfit, and of course, as a Green Orion Slave Girl! Note: Obviously these are variations on the original theme, for you are limited to the templates of the game and profile position of the model, but these are fanciful versions of the Trek Costumes as Erte may have  interpreted them.  I’m proudest of the ‘damsel’ gown, as I managed to recreate a facsimile of the fancy frock that Vina wore, complete with dark gold underskirt.  (There are many options for patterned fabric and skirt layering)  I’ll post some more of my other Trek ladies in the future.  Enjoy, and have a restful weekend! And check out this site, it’s fun! – Therese
