This thread is relevant to my Halloween interests.  Although no one would know who I was... they'd think I was some kind of Project Runway reject.

Plenty of older Trek fans would recognize many of those outfits.

From Wikipedia:

The "Theiss Titillation Theory"-which claims that "the degree to which a costume is considered sexy is directly proportional to how accident-prone it appears to be"-is named after him.[7] A key example of this idea in practice is the gynoid costume in the Star Trek episode "What are Little Girls Made Of?" in which the revealing top portion consists only of two crossing straps of material that connect in one piece to trousers, and-Theiss's personal favorite-the gown featured in the episode "Who Mourns for Adonais?": a backless dress in which the front of the dress was held up by the weight of the train which fell over the shoulder to the floor.[4]

Hallelujah, William Ware Theiss.

In some states the legal definition of "indecent exposure" includes showing any part of the breast below the top of the nipple.

I've obviously never seen this episode... can anyone explain the purpose of this scene other than to make Trekkies rub their peckers on the TV screen?

/and next year, they'll get to rub one out in HD, when S3 comes to bluray.

If I recall correctly, they're having "girl talk" about the fact that some guy is banging Troi like a screen door in a hurricane.

There's a reason TOS had some many ridiculously skimpy outfits : Gene. He'd show up at costuming and make alternations. Costumers said he'd just keep making suggestions to the point of picking up the scissors himself and cutting pieces off.

I made the Shahna & Andrea costumes for friends of mine for a con Masquerade (6 of us did women Kirk had screwed over and we beat the crap out of him to "Cellblock Tango" from Chicago). When we weren't all together, everyone recognized those two instantly. The others (Kelinda from "By Any Other Name", Miramani, Marlena Moreau, and Yeoman Rand), not so much.

If you really want to make either of them, ultrasuede worked best for Andrea. I adapted a regular overalls pattern for hers. I used silver lamé for Shahna but ended up winging it for the pattern. And LOTS of double-sided tape to keep the outfits on them. I'd post pics but I'm on my phone. If you want, I'll post them later.

My favorite is the blue number on the right, with the crotch tassels. You don't really see crotch tassels on television any more.

He said "crotch tassels" twice...

Probably one of the hottest Trek cosplays I've seen in recent years. Granted I don't see much around here. It's generally frowned upon in this area if you enjoy anything other than reality TV and sports.

Angelique Pettyjohn - you think she looked good in that outfit, you should have seen her when she worked at Circus Circus for a couple years before she passed away. Picture that in a hot ringmaster's outfit. Lady also had a thousand-watt smile and would chat with anybody who asked her about Trek.
