BSG Meets Star Trek: TOS

Collecting props and costumes is a hobby many of us share, but it can be frustrating to find well made costumes.

Your options are usually:

Double Tanks, from "Battlestar Galactica"

A. Learn to sew, do all the research, (takes FOREVER!) buy the materials, put it all together, and then show off your goods.

B. Pay large amounts of money to have a replica made, which may or may not fit well, or have accurate materials.

So you want to skip all the bullshit and get straight to the costume?  I’m with you, now lets all go over to ANOVOS and order some frakkin’ cool BSG costumes.  ANOVOS has been around for a few years and has consistently brought the costuming world quality products.  They also have Star Trek costumes and a bunch of great badges/pins from BSG.  I’ve caught up with them at Comic-Con a few times to see their work, and it looks just like the real thing, which I’ve also seen.

Rank pins, from "Battlestar Galactica"

These guys are batshit-insane and have spent many MANY hours researching the right materials, getting the patterns right, even using the same company that the show used to re-create the costumes.  ANOVOS offers only a few runs of costumes at a time, sacrificing quantity over quality, they are fans offering other fans the products they themselves would buy.  I love these guys, and if you are looking for a badass costume next year go take a look.  You wont be sorry.
