    Err, maybe I should be ashamed of this but I don't really care. I know some people here (hint hint) want to see such a thread so here goes:

    Science fiction. Clothing. Best.

    P.s. please do not make this a thread for leotard fetishes please [​IMG]

    LOL

    Let me change it a bit. Best/most intriguing clothing within the sci-fi realm., I guess that would include TV and film. Uhm, I have no idea frankly, I cannot think of anything interesting.

    Wait, I take that back.

    Bladerunner had some interesting juxtapositions of 1980's contemporary wear with the 1950's film noir atmosphere and clothing.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Brazil was sort of interesting as far as costuming went. Period suits, futuristic armor/loincloth/bird wing assemblies, and what can only be the precursor to paramilitary grunge. As far as shows go, last time this thread was done (it's been a while) someone suggested Firefly. Having since seen it (and Serenity) I would have to agree, the costuming is exceptional.

    Hmm, never knew there was such a thread. Brazil...good point. I still need to cough up the $50 (I think) to get the Criterion edition.

    Edit:
    I am not that familiar with Firefly... I think a friend of mine may have had me watch an episode though.

    Wait, how could I forget Red Dwarf? How can you go wrong with The Cat's outfits [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and this one (aka Trads in Space)

    [​IMG]

    Definitely the most entertaining costumes in film though. Almost every scene a different James Brown-like outfit.

    Ah yes... Red Dwarf. I think I wasted a year or two of my HS life watching the entirety of the show up until that point... six seasons or something, plus all the Smeg Ups and stuff.

    Hmm, I have yet to see Barbarella. Must see that at some point.

    Barbarella, good call... another movie sort of in the same vein is CQ, but more of an homage I guess. [​IMG]

    I shudder to think how much effect this had on me, as a young boy, in shaping my future clothing tastes.

    A lot of sci-fi concerns the military who are usually uniformed. I like the post-independence Babylon 5 outfits. [​IMG]

    I was coming in here to suggest Firefly.

    One of the commentaries in the DVD box set is by the costume designer - it's actually pretty staggering how much effort they'd go into, right down to t-shirt graphics that 99% of viewers would never consciously notice.

    I think I'm going to print up a Blue Sun t-shirt in a week or two.

    barbarella was a good call (paco rabanne did the clothes for that)

    brazil as well, i'll have to dig that out and give it another watch -

    gattacca is in the most stylish films thread, but applies here, along with maybe dark city for clean cut futuristsic 40s stuff.

    i'm gonna class 2046 as sci fi - it is the most stunningly beautiful (yet pretentiously vapid) film i have ever seen.

    i like their 'drink your own wee' suits in the lynch dune.

    2001 is well stylish, the space-hostesses wear cool 60s modernism.

    i'm really feelin ming's daughter's (ornella muti) cat suits in flash gordon

    mel gibson in mad max 1 sports nice fitting biker leathers, and kenada out or akira wears a simmilar cut, but in red and with a big pill emblazoned on the back...i always wanted kenada's outfit..and bike..and laser..
