I am a fan of Star Trek and have been amazed at the different Klingon costumes for men in the series and movies. I have never thought about being a Klingon for Halloween as a child or an adult.
I know there are those who go to Star Trek conventions and other events in their Klingon costumes. I had wondered if they made their Klingon costumes for men or bought them.
Looking through some of the websites I found while searching for costumes, I found a few Klingon costumes and pictures Star Trek fans that have made their own costumes right down to the head piece that looks like a spine.
After looking through “The Star Trek Encyclopedia: A Reference Guide to the Future,” I noticed the pieces for the Klingon men Halloween costume patterns are for warriors, a chancellor, and a diplomat.2
There was one female Klingon warrior costume on the page in the book where I found the other costumes. However, I didn’t find a Klingon female costume on any of the Klingon costume websites I have listed.
Tips for Making the Shirt and Pants for the Klingon Halloween Costume for Men1
Note: Use the footnote number next to the title to use as your reference making the following part of the Klingon Halloween costume for men like I did when describing how to make these pieces.
For Under the Klingon Outer Tunic: A sweatshirt or similar shirt can be used for wearing under the outer tunic. Buy a yard (roughly) of fake fur in black to make the arm covers between the gloves and shoulders.
The fake fur covers can be stitched to the shirt just over the shoulder seam. The fake fur arm covers will need to go from the shoulders to just inside the gloves (about 1 to 2 inches in both areas).
For the Klingon Pants for Men: A pair of grey or black sweat pants in your size. It won’t matter if there is elastic in the waist or ankle areas. Both areas will be covered. Sew a seam up the front where the crease would be when the folding the sweat pants.
