If you've made a Star Trek costume from a turtleneck and a pair of black pants, you'll want some Star Trek accessories to look authentic. The first thing you'll need is a Comm Badge. Second, a working phaser is a must. An hour's work will provide all the costume accessories you need.

Comm Badge

Step 1

Glue the small felt circle onto the larger circle, making sure it is centered.

Step 2

Snip a smaller triangle of fabric from the base of the silver felt triangle. Curve the triangle's tip. The shape should resemble the tip of an arrow.

Step 3

Glue the fabric triangle onto the fabric circles, making sure it is centered.

Step 4

Attach the Comm Badge to your costume with a safety pin.

Phaser

Step 1

Hot glue the toilet roll holder to the base of the remote control. Center the tube. This is the phaser's handle.

Step 2

Paint the phaser handle gray. Paint the remote as well if it is not gray.

Step 3

Hot glue the cat laser onto the side of the remote control so that the laser faces forward. The laser's on button should be in a position so that you can easily press it when you are holding the phaser.
