Of course, I had to make something fun to wear. So, I made a skirt based on one of my favorite games, FTL: Faster Than Light. It's a roguelike spaceship simulator, or, really, a Captain Picard simulator. You're the captain of a spaceship on an important mission to save the Federation from the Rebels, and so you travel to new star systems, interact with the people there, run diplomatic missions, and get in fights with other spaceships. These fights work pretty much the same way that they do in Star Trek, where you take a hit to your shields so you reroute power to the engines, but the engine room caught on fire so you have to vent the oxygen from the room to put out the fire...
|Nooooo!!! Not an asteroid field!|
Anyway, I had fabric printed using Spoonflower-- I arranged some of the playable ships in a floral-print sort of pattern. I made a circle skirt, used a row of ships to make the waistband, stiffened the hem with horsehair braid, and lined it with white silk habotai.
Still, it was a lot of fun, and I'd highly recommend PAX and FTL if you're interested in gaming!
