To all the DS9 Romantics out there...

This is a post long in the making. I have been looking forward to putting the picture up, but it took me a couple of months to get off my keester and get Odo onto a Manequinn. I know that some folks hate the Odo/Kira romance, but for me, it was one of the most touching aspects of the series, and the start of their relationship in Vic's Lounge paired with the final moment on the changling homeworld are the best. To that end, here are Kira's red dress from the holographic "Lola Chrystal" persona and subsequent Kira dates with Odo, and Odo's Tuxedo. I currently have a bowtie correct for the final scene of their romance on the shirt rather than the western style the shows costumers used for the first few appearances of the tux. I still need to nail down the correct color for the metal around the black of the buttons, silver or gold? Kira's dress is hanging by some built-in dress hangers in the corset portion. I have to say that the dress displays beautifully and I will probably never put it away into the closet. It is truly a wonderful piece for me and I am grateful to Toni for its sale.

Ok, so here for your enjoyment are Odo and Kira!

Was Kira's dress custom for the show, or was it based off a dress you can buy somewhere? James Darren is playing a few shows and I'd love to get something similar for my girl...

It is a completely custom gown much like the majority of Trek costumes. Enjoy the James Darren shows!! I'd love to be there...
