Captain James T. Kirk

Captain James Tiberius Kirk (William Shatner) is a main character in Star Trek: The Original Series. He is the first captain of the Starship Enterprise. Each episode begins with the narration of his captain’s log. His ego and heroic complex often result in violating the prime directive. Despite this, he is a respected leader who always puts his crew first. Kirk is also a known womanizer, hence kissing a sexy alien in any given episode. His closest friends are Spock and Dr. McCoy.

Leila Kalomi from Star Trek

Leila Kalomi (Jill Ireland) was a character in Star Trek: The Original Series, namely in the episode “This Side of Paradise.” Leila was a human botanist in Elias Sandoval’s Omicron colony. When the Starship Enterprise lands in 2261, Leila developed feelings for Spock.  Three years later, she discovered the spores, which protected the planet from deadly rays but also enchanted the colonists into a state of tranquility. She used the spores on Spock as a love potion, yet Captain Kirk reversed the effect by making him angry. Leila attempted to reconcile with Spock, but realizing he was no longer under the spore’s effect, she experienced intense sadness, which reverses the effect too. She was later evacuated to Starbase 27 with the rest of the Omicron colonists.

Soji Asha from Star Trek: Picard

Soji Asha (played by Isa Briones who also played Soji’s twin sister Dahj as well as another android named Sutra) is one of two androids that were designed to look human. And, more impressive still, they were programmed to believe they are human. Their programming is descended from Data, a fan favorite on Star Trek: The Next Generation. While Data was unfortunately killed before the events of Star Trek: Picard, he lives on in his ‘daughters’.

Soji’s costume changes a few times throughout the show because, unlike most characters in previous Star Trek shows, she is not a Starfleet officer. Her costume when viewers first meet her, however, is very recognizable and makes for a great cosplay.

A grey jumpsuit forms the base. You can also use a grey shirt and matching pants but a jumpsuit would be easiest. Wear a black undershirt and black boots with it. Copy Soji’s hairstyle with a short wig and, as the final touch, add a necklace of two linked circles just like the one Soji and Dahj wear.
