Star Trek Struggles

I have had most of the materials to get my Star Trek Fangirl costume made. But I’ve been struggling with how to incorporate Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Well, not anymore. While thinking about the 20th Century Doctor Who Fangirl costume, I had an epiphany about DS9. I’ve been thinking of the ST skirt as one huge piece. But there…
