Happy 50th Anniversary, Star Trek! (Updated Photo Collages)


Today is Star Trek's 50th anniversary! 
The first episode aired on September 8, 1966.

I made six photo collages (started as mood boards) for Star Trek TOS characters.
I'd already posted four--I just now finished Chekov & Sulu in time. 
(It's a little after midnight on Sept. 8, 2016.)

Hiraku Sulu, he gets a botanical border and gold clouds from a scroll illustrating the Tale of Genji (source of his first name, "Hiraku" = "shining"); a rapier, vintage compass, some sort of star map, and sandhill crane feathers


Pavel Chekov, navigator, Russian; he gets wings and gold panel from a Russian Orthodox icon, an astrolabe, Sputnik, & a hallway from Solaris

She gets a red chair by Vincent van Gogh, rotary phone, and antique letter with sealing wax

[From the Mirror, Mirror alternate universe. Going somewhere, Mr. Spock?]


below: Captain James T. Kirk: 
He's from Iowa, and an Aries--hence the golden baby ram (from Copenhagen).

MINT JULEP….

10 to 12 fresh mint leaves
1 teaspoonful sugar
Muddle mint leaves and sugar in tall glass. Fill glass with cracked ice. Add 1 jigger Old Crow. Stir until glass frosts. Decorate with 2 sprigs of fresh mint.

[I had to look up “Old Crow.” It’s a brand of bourbon.

Thanks, Poodle! Maybe you make this sort of thing for Lavender Grey? Have you got a website going for that yet?

Hadn't seen the Bones one; very good! And wish I could have a Mint Julep right now!

BINK: I'd added Bones a few days ago--and then Sulu & Chekov--wanted to keep them all together.
A mint julep? Count me in! Hey--maybe I could make em for your birthday?!?!

These really are beautiful as a set. The colors are so rich. And birthday mint juleps--Yum!
