We're not big on Halloween because it's just not something we care about. We're also not anti-Halloween, because if we rejected all holidays with pagan roots, we'd be skipping Easter and Christmas, too. But we love Star Trek. And a day where the whole gang gets to dress up like the crew of the original series is a great day indeed.
What do you need?
Black pants or skirts for everyone
Long sleeve shirts, either solid red, green, yellow, or blue
Black electrical tape
Band aids (optional)
It's obvious what you do with the black pants. Put them on. Now, we're going to fancy up the shirt a little. The electrical tape goes around the collar. I just put it around the front.
I make a basic emblem cut out of two pieces of masking tape. I also rip the masking tape into strips to make the rank braid around the cuffs that show the rank of each officer. This one will be a lieutenant.
The band aids I use to wrap around the top of one child's ear, making a point. That's how we get our Vulcan, or Romulan if you want to be real creative with the Star Trek timeline.
Maybe this post would have been helpful before Halloween. For those of you without any ideas, this one is pretty easy.
What, if anything, are your kids going to be today?
