Live Long and Cosplay – A Tribute to Classic Star Trek CosplayMarch 1, 2015
This past Friday we lost a sci-fi legend: the incomparable Leonard Nimoy, better known as Star Trek‘s original Mr. Spock. For many fans his passing feels like losing a family member. Nimoy brought Spock to life in a way no one else could, and both he and his character inspired many geeks to feel as though they belonged, to aspire to great things, and to “boldly go where no man has gone before”. The geek community owes a lot to Mr. Nimoy and the Star Trek universe, and if there’s one thing we do best it’s pay tribute to the things we love in the most creative, outrageous and fanatical ways. So in the spirit of celebrating his life and memory, we thought we’d share some fantastic original series Star Trek cosplay!
