Shatner and The Texas Lottery Are Trying to Break the Record for Most Star Trek Fans in Costume
The guidelines are so specific that we assumed questions were posed to entice such rules. I've added the possible questions that enacted the guidelines in italics:
Can I wear a Not Star Trek Costume to the Star Trek event?
1) All participants must be wearing costumes representing characters from the Star Trek universe and extended canon.
Can I wear my Halloween costume from 1978 of an LSD Cat?
2) Characters or alien races that have not appeared in official Star Trek canon releases (including television series, motion pictures, novels and comic books) are not permitted.
Can I just wear only my borg banana hammock?
3) To qualify, all costumes must be full, head-to-toe representations of the chosen character.
Can I take off my costume moments after realizing I've worn a Star Wars costume by mistake?
4) All participants must wear the costume for the entirety of the attempt.
I have to pee?
5) All participants must be in position simultaneously and remain so for a minimum of 10 minutes.
How will anyone know if my Captain Kirk underpants are 100% real?
6) A Star Trek expert must be present to attest to the authenticity of the costumes. Details of this individual's qualifications must be submitted as part of the evidence.
If I bleach my William Shatner mask and wear it with a Sasquatch costume bottom, will it bother anyone?
7) The eligibility of characters and the acceptability of costumes to be considered for the attempt remain at the discretion of Guinness World Records.
More info on the Star Trek Scratch Off Event is over on their Facebook. We, for one, would love Dallas to be the holder of this record--so let's get out there shall we? Wilonsky?
