# 1 Klingon Clothing Requests
08-03-2010, 10:20 AM
I'd like to post a few requests that I'd like to see added to the KDF Costume Creator, please. While there have been several cool, new additions recently, I feel that we Klingons are still limited on options and lack variety. Here are a few things that would go a long way to changing that perception, I think.

- I'd like to see a shirtless vest option. Something along the lines of what Captain Klaa wore in Star Trek V. http://www.startrek.com/database_article/klaa

- I'd like for the "Gauntlet 03" option available to female KDF members to be unlocked for all KDF members. EDIT: Added 08-05-2010.

- Speaking of which, would it also be possible to unlock the various "Round" shoulderpad options for all KDF as well? Currently, they're only available to females, but they are the closest option we have to canon, I think.

- I'd like a fingerless glove option for KDF members - especially Klingons. Preferably with the knuckle-spikes.

- I'd like to see a few more hair options. Maybe even something kinda crazy (see Captain Klaa).

- A Klingon cloak/long coat option would be awesome! Something like: http://www.ussgorkon.com/kruge1.jpg OR http://www.northwestmuseum.org/userf...gon_Cutout.jpg. This could even be the Klingon Vet Reward.

- The ability to turn the "forehead bumps" off to make a TOS Klingon would also be cool. Presently, you have to make an Alien character to make an authentic-looking TOS Klingon.

- I'd personally love to see a classic Gorn costume available: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_ROkRE5EPI2...rtrek-gorn.jpg

- More color palette options.

- I don't know whether it's possible, but it'd be cool to see more "bling" options. Gold chains, bracelets, medals, cosmetic weapons, and so on that we could add on top of costume pieces. This could even be a function of equipping the various kits (i.e. equipping the Close Combat Specialist kit adds a sheathed D'K Tahg and a utility belt, while Squad Leader adds several medals and gold chains).

- That reminds me, are Klingons ever going to get the same option to turn on armor and kit special effects that the Federation characters currently have?

Anyone else have any ideas?

Edit: Fixed links.

Three of your four links are broken. Two of them are blocked hotlinks, the third even has "blank.gif" in the url.

Otherwise, good suggestions.

Here are a couple of more hair options I'd like to see made available for the KDF:

- Something short, like this from TMP: http://www.shadowdalecreations.com/klingons_2.jpg

- Something like Kruge had in the Search for Spock: http://www.shadowdalecreations.com/Kruge_1.jpg

(Also note the shoulderpads that Kruge was wearing...please unlock the "Round" shoulderpads for all KDF.)

- Something long, that's not dreads. Kind of like what Gowron and Maltz have here: http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__...on%2C_2367.jpg and http://www.wearysloth.com/Gallery/Ac...9906-18158.jpg. Think 80s hair band. These hairstyles would also likely work for Nausicaans as well.

And finally, I've mentioned it already in my previous post, but I have to say it again, because I know I'd have my Klingon wear it in a second...Klaa's hairstyle: http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/ga...k/klaa-st5.jpg

All great idea's, I would also like to see the holster for there disruptor and maybe even a place for there d'k tahg. And maybe anotheir pair of pants or two would be nice. And The uniform Chancelor Gorkon wore in The Undiscoverd country would be nice for BG+ Characters.

Yeah, General Chang had some cool elements to his costume: http://images.auctionworks.com/hi/3/3282/chang_28.2.jpg. The cool chest armor and the red, baggy sleeves.

We could also use some dresses for the Lursa's and B'Etor's of the KDF: http://www.gomtuu.de/data/lursa-betor.jpg

We definitely need a holster option for our costumes. They could make them a function of the kits, and I'd be satisfied with that.

I definatley second the need for non dreadlock haircuts. We need some Martok/Gowron crazy long hair styles.

Klingons need access to the new Formal Wear ... it's totally cannon. See!

Vest only is something that's been needed for a while.

Looks like the sisters are wearing the basic Klingon vest like Klaa wears with shoulder pads, sleeves, and a skirt added in. I should think that would be pretty straightforward to put together.

- - - - - -
While I was at it I poked around and found some good examples of the things talked about above : :
  • Male Klingon Outfits : 1 2 3
  • Female Klingon Outfits : 1 2 3 4 5
  • Hairdos : 1 2
  • "Bling" : 1 (necklace) 2 3

MUST HAVE EMOTE

A few more things I've seen in other, older threads:

- Shoulder/forearm armor: It's be cool to get something like this for female KDF members, though it would probably be even better for all KDF members: http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__...Warrioress.jpg (It kind of resembles the spine armor, but is worn along the arms and shoulders - I like it!)

- Klingon formal robes/off-duty clothes: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2313/...880fd5.jpg?v=0 and http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2269/...daeedb.jpg?v=0

- It would also be cool to see a 25th Century update of the classic Gorn uniform. They just don't look right dressed in Klingon duds.

Nice to see some images of off-duty klingon wear... which that faction would be well served to have.

And yeah, need a gorn outfit for the gorn rather than a klingon uniform.
