As a geeky girl I relate well to other geeky girls especially ones in my favorite films, series, and books. Although my life is filled with many geeky woman characters by far the one that stands out for me the most would be Uhura as played by the stunning Nichelle Nichols. I’ve always felt like Doctor Who and Star Trek reruns watched as a child were what shaped my geeky path in life.
Star Trek reruns on channel 9 after school were totally a thing for me. At this point in my I can probably play Uhura’s part in any episode or any of the characters as I’ve watched and rewatched the three seasons several hundred times.
So of course, I find this cute Star Trek Uhura Makeup Bag a total must have!
Ya know, you never saw Uhura applying her makeup but she always looked spot on didn’t she? I think it’s because she always stayed on board when landing parties were launched. That girl never left her station. How very unfair that she never got in on the action! I think she could have totally took out the Gorns by batting her lashes but she was never given a chance.
None the less I’m sure she kept her makeup essentials in a wicked makeup bag much like this one. This generous size bag takes a nod at Uhura’s red shirt (yeah, she was one of the only red shirts that didn’t get killed if you’re up for that theory) with a magnetic closure, zipper closure for extra security, generously sized mirror, and even a Gold Star Trek themed lining!
My thoughts are if you’re going to carry around a makeup bag it should be wicked geeky cool yes?
And this bag so is!
