#ThrowbackThursday: Star Trek Lives!

April 9, 2015 in blog posts

In honor of Anima’s upcoming spot as a Costume Guest of Honor at Marcon 50, we’re taking a look back at some of her science fiction conventions and cosplay highlights for #throwbackthursday! Let’s look at some of Anima’s favorite cosplays from the Star Trek conventions of the 1970s!


An Andorrian, a Klingon, and an Orion Slave Girl – oh my! Anima is pictured here as an Orion Slave Girl at the 1974 International Star Trek Convention.


Anima as Lieutenant M’Ress in her native battle gear, SX70 Polaroid. This was her first-ever latex appliance, made when she was sixteen.

Who’s that in the background of this picture? It’s a young George Takei, best known as Sulu in the original Star Trek television series and films!
