The final frontier.
These are the voyages of the DOLL SHIP ENTERPRISE!
EEEEEEEP! 😀 I am SOSOSOSO excited to present to you the next installment of the Summer of ’66!
(Also, I am SUPER sorry if you received this post unfinished a few weeks ago…that was a glitch with my computer.)
My family is obsessed with Star Trek: the Original Series.
I think I’ve seen every episode at least 3 times, and I try to sing along with the opera lady every time the theme song comes on (anyone else do that?) 😉
Alsoooo…..Star Trek: The Original Series premiered in the Summer of 1966, so guess what???
I decided to transform my dolls into the Enterprise Crew! 😀
Actually, this project has been about a year in the making. I tried making doll Star Trek costumes shortly after I started blogging back in July of last year, but at the time I didn’t have any boy dolls to add to the mix, and my doll-sized sewing was, admittedly, not the best. 😉 I restructured some of those original uniforms for the girls’ outfits this time around. 🙂
When I was planning this, I knew immediately that I wanted Dexter to be Captain Kirk (that was a no-brainer 🙂 ), and I knew Cedar would make the perfect Lt. Uhura. I wanted Hunter to be Spock (even though his hair is not ideal 😉 ), but Alistair doesn’t have the hair for Scotty or Bones. Thus he is just a humble red shirt guy (and we all know what happens to them 😉 ). I also decided Ashlynn could be Nurse Christine Chapel (don’t worry, I didn’t know her name either until I looked it up 😉 ).
I made the guys’ uniforms using DGRequiem’s EAH Boy Basics Pattern (which I HIGHLY recommend), and the girls’ uniforms are free handed by yours truly. 🙂
Here is a collage of some pictures from Star Trek (all from the IMDB Gallery) to give you an idea of what we’re going for. 🙂
I also made a trailer inspired by Star Trek, and I might try doing a webisode series in the future based on this, if y’all like it! 🙂
So….(drumroll)…..I present to you…..
DOLL TREK! 😀
Also, here are the photos I took of the crew. 🙂
Be sure to comment below with your favorite one of the doll crew members, and if you watch the original series, tell me what your favorite episode is!
