Star Army Skirt, Pleated, Type 35

The Type 35 Pleated Skirt is a pleated skirt used by soldiers of the Star Army of Yamatai. It is one of two skirts authorized for wear as part of the Star Army of Yamatai's Star Army Duty Uniform, Type 35 and Star Army Duty Uniform, Type 42 as an optional replacement to the standard-issue pants (another is the Star Army Skirt, Type 35). It is popular among female soldiers, particularly enlisted soldiers and certain legless species. It is sometimes referred to as the “cheerleader” skirt.

Design

The skirt is made from the same fabric as the Star Army Jacket, Type 35. It uses design with about 12 box pleats (usually seven are visible from the front). The skirt has a hidden zipper on the right side.

History

Type 30C Duty Uniform with Type 35 Pleated Skirt

Pleated skirts were first used in the Star Army of Yamatai in YE 30 with the Star Army Duty Uniform, Type 30A.

Before the introduction of the standardized skirt types (standard and pleated) in YE 35, regulations were very loose. Skirts came in a wide variety of lengths, colors, and materials. New rules made skirts in a more uniform length and fixed them into a standard regal blue color.

As of YE 42, the pleated skirt may be worn with the new Star Army Duty Uniform, Type 42.

Usage

This skirt is always worn with tights, unless the temperature is quite high.

It is authorized for all genders.

By Non-Humanoids

Pleated skirts are typically used to substitute for pants for species whose physiology is not conducive to pants, such as the Separa'Shan (whose lower bodies are snakelike).
