How to Create Nero (Star Trek 2009) Costume
Nero is one of the enemies of the USS Enterprise. In the new movie coming out May 2009 Nero will be played by Eric Bana. His costume for Star Trek is one of the more involved, and thus an interesting costume to make. We have a few suggestions on how you can become Nero for your next costume party.
* Temporary Tattoos
* Black long sleeve shirt
* Black pants
* Black Boots
Step 1: You will need to find the materials listed above. There are several places to shop such as a thrift store to find the right things. The long sleeve shirt should be loose on you, but the pants can be leather and fairly tight.
Step 2: Once you have the clothing you may need to make it a little torn or worn. Nero as the bad guy does end up in several fights, which means his clothing is somewhat in tatters.
Step 3: The black boots, again can be anything as long as they reach about mid calf.
Step 4: Now we can set to work on the face and head. Nero is completely bald, thus you will need a skull cap to hide your hair.
Step 5: The face and skull will need tattooing. You can use temporary tattoos to achieve this edge. The tattoos need to be cross like symbols.
Step 6: To finish the skull you will need Vulcan ears. The Vulcan ears are pointed at the tops, and will fit over your own ears. These can be purchased here at Costumzee.
Step 7: The last step is finding a sceptre. The sceptre should be a long metal stick, with a Nero symbol on the top. This might be the most difficult piece to find, so you might consider making a fake sceptre to go with your costume. This can be done with tin foil and a wooden stick.
