Star Trek is one of the most famous sci-fi TV series, with 5 series and 11 movies. This sums up the immense choice you have.
However, since the whole concept of a Star Trek theme is to dress like an alien, it automatically adds that creepiness to your costume, which it needs to fit in with the Halloween needs.
Arguably, the two most popular choices in this theme are Spock and Captain Kirk. Nero is not too far behind either.
The basic costume that you will find on this theme will involve a full sleeve velour top, pants which are just a little longer than knee length and pair of black boots. This would make you a perfect Star Trek themed alien.
If you are going as Spock or McCoy, your costume would be mostly blue. If you are going as Kirk, your costume would involve a golden shirt, and the list goes on.
The basic costumes are pretty much the same looking. However, since the series was too long and the characters continually changed the dressing, it gives costume makers a wide range to obtain inspiration from.
From the very plain and basic ones, to deluxe ones with more details, there are way too many costumes in the market, which are inspired by Star Trek.
From the very detailed costumes like Nero’s headpiece, pointed ears and gown to quite generic ones, which involve a blue top with black V-neck and black pants, there is everything. Adult or Child, Man or Woman, this theme has everything for everyone.
Even if you do not wish to actually mimic a character from the series, you should not find it difficult to find costumes which fit in the theme and make you look like another crew of Enterprise.
Costume shops take into consideration the idea that many people may want to follow the theme but not the characters.
As a result, do not be surprised if you come across Spock Vulcan ears and other alien-like pointed ears, in these shops.
With so many creepy costume choices to choose from, you can add your own character to this costume and still be one of the ‘Trekkies.’ Being an alien has never been cooler.
