More Info...

This Klingon-spoof costume was designed for a presentation entitled, "Lone Worf and Club".  After chugging a carton of milk, my chest would inflate with CO2.  Then the MC (Marty Gear) read: "Milk, it does a Klingon BETTER.."  Okay, maybe not the best skit I ever conceived but people laughed.  At the time, I was more concerned about designing a realistic-looking Klingon head.  Since the majority of Klingon heads back then resembled chocolate-dipped rubber crabs, I made mine from leather.  Soaking the leather in boiling water and carefully shaping it.  The forehead ridges were hand-stitched into overlapping wrinkles.  I darkened the leather using vegetable dyes, in an attempt to make it flesh-colored.  Unfortunately, the leather was much lighter than my natural skin color and I didn't want to sweat under layers of make-up.  The judges didn't seem to mind, and were impressed with my leatherwork.
