More Info...

My first anime-inspired recreation debuted at EveCon 1989.  This was a challenging costume for me, due to the number of parts and detail required to make an accurate recreation.  At the time, there were no anime conventions for me to attend, so I wore my Captain Harlock costume to a local Sci-Fi convention.  The costume was well-received, even though the majority of the audience didn't know who I was supposed to be.

Klingon spoof: "Captain K'arlock" with Orion mistress from SciCon 13.  This convention traditionally received many Klingon guests, so this variation was highly appropriate.
