Geordi La Forge Cosplay Costumes
Geordi La Forge was created in honor of a fan of the original Star Trek series. The device Geordi wears, called a VISOR, enables him to see. It’s not exactly like human eyesight but allows him to “see” radio waves, infrared, and ultraviolet. He doesn’t let his loss of sight prevent him from doing what he truly loves. He worked hard to join the Starfleet, and people learn he is a highly skilled engineer. His intelligence and work ethic has gained him the attention of many higher-ranking officers. Geordi also earned a name for himself when graduating from the academy.
Dressed as Geordi, you still need the rest of your crew to complete a real Star Trek: The Next Generation group cosplay. So, whether you’re going alone or if Data will be joining you, you’re bound to find an adventure in space! Don’t forget to submit an entry into the annual Halloween Costume Contest with your Star Trek costume.
About Geordi La Forge

After impressing Captain Jean-Luc Picard by fixing a shuttlecraft, he is asked to join his command on the Enterprise-D as a helmsman.
Geordi impresses almost everyone he meets with his engineering skills and can-do attitude. He tries to have more friends than enemies but isn’t really close to anyone but Data. He enjoys a good poker game and has a hobby of building models. He’s also skilled at chess, swimming, and fencing, but has found writing to be a challenge. His ability to pick up new skills quickly enabled him to learn several different languages.
