Here are more make-up and costumes screen tests of Shatner, Nimoy and the late Persis Khambatta as Ilia for TMP.

Enjoy, people ! This is very rare stuff - a friend sent to me.

Looks like Ilia's robe was a different color here than the final version (and no collar, either)... and I love her blended go-go boots. :giggle:

The (sadly) late Persis Khambatta (1948-98) was a lovely, lovely woman. Truly beautiful (hair or no hair). So sad...

Hopefully, they got his toupee right for the movie - but we Shatner fans are not supposed to discuss that LOL

Ooops....

I can just imagine what might have been said to get Shatner to change his hair:

"Bill, you need to switch it up - you can't have more hair than the women do!"

"Bill, if you're that concerned about height, we'll put lifts in your shoes. Teasing your (fake) hair higher just looks ridiculous."

"Bill, we know you used Persis Khambatta's hair for that toupee. Please change it. Seriously, she's getting jealous..."

As for the go-go boots, it kind of looks like they amputated Ilia's legs below the knee and reattached someone else's...probably good they changed it up.
