Boy am I glad I put this post on Trek BBS after creating it here. I was able to copy and paste it back to The New All Sci-Fi!
____________________________________________

Next to rockets and saucers, fans of classic science fiction just love spacesuits!

A spacesuit isn't just a fashion statement reserved for intrepid space explorers, a spacesuit is the ultimate expression of mankind's ability to control his environment. While wearing a spacesuit, a person can thumb his nose at the interstellar vacuum, laugh in the face of deadly radiation, and scoff at the perils of killer meteoroids!

Okay, sorry, that last one is still a major problem. But if a spacesuit is tough enough, the wearer can stride forth on an alien planet with a toxic atmosphere while he hums Singing in the Acid Rain and dances around the pools of lava that dot the landscape! Cool

Yeah, yeah, I'm getting carried away. Back to the subject at hand.

I do have a point, and here it is: spacesuits don't have to be "all function and no form", because that would make Astronaut Jack a dull boy. So I'd like to start a gallery of truly stellar spacesuits, the best of the best, the crème de la crème of cosmic attire.

And so, without further ado, Star Trek BBS proudly presents a Fall Fashion Show of Outer Space Apparel.

Mesdames et Messieurs, we begin today's extravaganza with these examples of classic deep space accoutrements from Conquest of Space. This outfit is recommended as a springtime garment. The white color will keep you cool — an important consideration in the direct sunlight of space.



However, it should be noted that the white fabric is difficult to keep clean, and it may not fare well if one is caught in a sudden April meteor shower.



Next we have these elegant items from Destination Moon, which come in a variety of festive colors.



No well-dressed lunar explorer would dare go outdoors without this ensemble, which includes a durable chaffing suit, roomy space helmet, and user-friendly control panel right at the wearer's fingertips.



* Oxygen bottle for space joyrides not included.



From the glamorous world of network television we present Star Trek (TOS) and that dashing clothes horse himself — James T. Kirk, resplendent in this form-fitting ensemble of silver lame' fabric with colorful piping. The helmet provides air for the wearer and protection from those pesky space mosquitoes.



In later years, the crew of the Enterprise traded in their old threads for these snappy 23th Century ensembles.







As the Golden Age of Science Fiction came to a close, a new age began with a movie released in the middle of the 20th Century which was set at the beginning of the 21st.



2001: A Space Odyssey thrilled the world and made science fiction cool for the general population — no longer the exclusive province of forward-thinking nerds and visionary geeks.

__

Since this is an international fashion show, we offer these entries from the Land of the Cossacks — mother Russia and all her little Ruskies. In Planeta Bur, the cosmonauts were cool and comfortable in these flexible outfits, suitable for exploring on foot or cruising around in their convertible Cadillac Levitator.





Quite the fashion divas, these well-appointed comrades, when it comes to lookin' good on Venus, the Planet of Love!





Now that "21st Century reality" has overtaken "Fifties Futuristic fashions", we conclude our fashion show with these sexy garbs from Armageddon, Prometheus and Red Planet.









The wearers of these alluring environmental suits are afforded an unobstructed view of their surroundings while providing delicious eye candy for all the lucky folks permitted to admire them.

Bravo, boys and girls!

And there you have it, a whirlwind tour through the world of Space Age accessories. We hope you found this presentation both entertaining and enlightening. But we can't help but wonder . . . will spacesuits become even better?

Even tighter?

Even sexier?

Oh, yes. Yes, indeed . . .
