MTV.com has a photo of an Orion slave girl from the upcoming Star Trek movie. This photo was revealed during a promotion for the new Star Trek trading card set, and the picture is quickly making its way around the Internet as fanboys type with fervent glee.
Actress Diora Baird will be wearing the green paint in this movie, and I must say she is a fine choice for casting.
The exotic, green ladies from Star Trek have long been a popular costume worn by fans at sci fi events and cons, and it wasn’t hard to find several cosplay photos on Flickr.
Awesome costume pics!
I’d say Capt. Kirk is going to have his hands full in this movie, since legend has it that “no human male can resist them.” Well, it’s easy to see why.
Although, I have heard an interesting tidbit about new Star Trek movie. While Diora Baird will be playing an Orion woman, rumor has it that she won’t be slave. I wonder if she will be enrolled in the Academy as a student? Maybe the movie will address the history and mythology of Orion, and how they came to be slaves.
Here’s a video of an Orion Slave from the original Star Trek pilot, The Cage. Poor Capt. Pike, he looks distressed. Let’s hope Kirk does a better job of keeping it together in the new movie!
Sure, this astronaut is smiling and looks happy. But don’t be fooled. The life of an astronaut is totally hard and full of bitter disappointment. Did you know that over 71% of all former astronauts end up on the streets?
Ha, that’s actually a quote from this funny short film created by Guy Stevenson. He had fun with astronaut costumes and made a short mockumentary entitled Prostinauts.
It cracks me up to imagine these astronauts living on the streets, turning to crime, and all the while walking very slowly like they are on the moon.
Andy Hallett passed away yesterday at the young age of 33 due to his ongoing battle with heart disease. He was best known for his role on Angel as Lorne, the karoeoke singing demon.
This news makes me so very sad. Although I never met Andy Hallett in person, he seemed like a geniunely nice guy and he was a terrific singer.
I LOVED watching Angel, and Lorne was one of my favorite characters. He added a lot of humor and depth to the show, starting out as a recurring guest star, but was so popular that he soon became a main character.
And his costume was AWESOME. Lorne was completely green, with little red horns on his forehead. I wonder how much time it took to put on all the green makeup, every single day.
Andy Hallett, you made the world a better place. You will be missed!
Every once in a while, I find a costume story so crazy and insane that it just has to be true. Have no doubt, Gentle Readers, that this is one of those stories.
This incredibe, amazing, and astonishing Human Slinky Costume is for sale on Ebay for ONE MILLION DOLLARS!
Check out the video:
Wow, that is super cool. But a million dollars? Seriously? Okay, maybe this is just a joke, I really don’t know.
Since Ebay bid pages come and go, I took a screenshot to preserve this momentous occasion.
So it comes with permission to wear the costume, how generous! I wonder what happens after five years?

LOL, I love bizarre costume stories like this one. I’m curious if anyone will buy it. There’s a lot of crazy people in the world, so you just never know.
