On Saturday of the big Star Trek Las Vegas convention last month, Creation hosted the annual costume contest. Contestants entered pre-judging earlier that afternoon, and the best of the best were selected to compete on stage that evening. Jordan Hoffman hosted, introducing each contestant, and this year’s judges included Discovery actors Mary Chieffo and Wilson Cruz, and makeup gurus James MacKinnon (makeup supervisor for Discovery and Picard), and the legendary Michael Westmore. Every contestant displayed amazing talents but in the end, five Trekkies stood out and were recognized for their efforts. The top winner received a $1,000 gift certificate from Creation.
