Special PhotoStudy: Jolene Blalock (T'Pol) White Desert Jumpsuit from Star Trek: Enterprise

This White Desert Jumpsuit was screen worn by the lovely Jolene Blalock in her portrayal of T'Pol, the Vulcan First Officer of the Enterprise NX-01 in the most recent Star Trek television series, Enterprise (2001-2005). It was obtained directly from CBS/Paramount inventory, and is distressed with moderate soiling and tears to the right leg of the jumpsuit, where green Vulcan faux bloodstains have been applied. A sewn-in Enterprise costume label contains the name "Jolene Blalock" in faint lettering, which has been over-written with the name "Bonie Yanagisawa", who was the stunt double for Blalock during series production. As is the case with other principal character wardrobe items from the show; it is believed that this costume was originally screen worn by Blalock for the filming of multiple episodes, and then relegated to stunt usage when it became frayed/damaged. Some detailed photos of the jumpsuit are presented below; followed by some screenshots of Blalock in costume from the 4th season episode "The Forge"...
