the Voyager episode "The Q and the Grey")
Civil War Uniform
I cut down the uniform to fit Q. Using a pair of pants from a different
figure, I turned them inside out and place both pairs of pats together.
I traced the the smaller pants on to the larger pants. I cut them and sawed
back. I did the same steps with a picard jacket from frist contact.
The boots that came with the 12" uniform would not fit Q. I cut the top
part of the boot and wrapped around his leg. I used thread and needle to
hold it together. I used the Crayola Model Magic to cover the thread in
the back and around his shoe to match the boot. I used the black paint
to match the shoe and the top of the boot.
I used a small piece of maroon material to make his belt.
I also used the piece of black plastic belt that came with the uniform.
I place scotch tape on the belt and using the exacto knife I cut small
strips on the tape, exposing the black belt. I used the gold paint and
painted the over the scotch tape. Then I removed the remainder stripes
of scotch tape and the belt had perfect gold stripes.
I used a sword from the a cocktail drink. I also need it sheath,
so I used a coffee stir for the inside of the sheath. I cut it a little
longer than the sword. Using the Model Magic, I wrapped the stir all around
and let it dry for overnight. I use gold paint for for the handle, silver
for the blade and black for the sheath.
The hat I got it at craft store for 79 cents. I trimmed about a quarter
of an inch around the hat to make it a little smaller. I used the gold
paint to paint the string around his hat.
I removed the top part of Q's head and filled it with Crayola Model Magic.
Let it dry overnight, and painted it black.
