Working on this one, I feel like I'm deciphering ancient languages here, all of the awesome feeling. I have to meet my friends soon, but I'll try to figure it out later.

If I am at all correct, this one starts with "We the people of the...", maybe that helps others to solve it while I'm gone.

Oh dear, I'd figured out the first two lines, then it looked familiar...
Solution:
The Constitution (or the preamble to it.) I've put the words on the same line as JT wrote it to make it more clear which words mean which.

We the People of the United States,
in order to form a more perfect union,
establish Justice, insure domestic tranquility,
provide for the common defense,
promote the general welfare, and
secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves
and our posterity do ordain and establish
this Constitution for the
United States of America

I think I've deciphered this script properly now, it's very well thought out (and it looks pretty). More like these very welcome!

Okay...here's a script I just rediscovered, that I'd made a couple years ago...it's a bit more straightforward, but the letters aren't necessarily related at all to the Latin alphabet, since I made them up to suit my purposes:

Couple hints:

(1) It's written left-to-right.
(2) All punctuation (commas, periods, colons, quotation marks) is normal.
(3) The letters are all pretty distinct from each other, so if something looks just *slightly* different, it's probably the same letter.
(4) It's phonetic, so words might not be "spelled" the same as in normal English. [ ]

Must say, this one is harder, I have less to base it on.

Progress so far: the very first letter is an "a" in any case, that's all I've got.

Will update later.

UPDATE: The third letter, the one that looks like an o, is in fact the "s" sound, not completely sure what the accent that is on it sometimes means yet.

PROPER UPDATE:
I have to go to sleep soon, so someone else (I'm looking at you Sash, you promised on Tinychat) can go on with my progress and possibly solve it.
This is what I've got so far:


Also,

muahahaha

Ah, sorry to beat you to it Sasha, but I solved it!
Very seriously considering to become a cryptologist now (butilovesciencetoomuchsorry).

Full solution in Spoilers:
Script solving yeahhh:
I still have a dream, a dream
deeply rooted in the American
dream – one day this
nation will rise
up and live up to its creed,
"We hold these truths to be
self-evident: that all men
are created equal."
I have a dream . . .

Martin Luther King, Jr.


PS: JT, if I may be so bold to question your own script here; the way you wrote the word American seems a bit odd. You use that letter that looks like a fancy capital T for both the "ay" in day and the "a" in created , which makes sense as they phonetically sound the same, but then you also use it for the "e" in American. Is that a mistake? The way I pronounce it, it would be better if it had the letter you use for the vowel in "have" (the one that looks like a "d").
Just curious, any info welcome!

Thanks for keeping me occupied here, I'm liking this way too much. I feel brilliant when solving this, gosh.

Congratulations again, Tasha.

And
Spoiler:
no it's not a typo. That's the way we'd pronounce it...roughly. I could go into a full linguistic explanation, but it's closer to that vowel than the one in "have."

Thanks guys, afraid I can't study cryptology around here though.

Also Sash, you wanted me to spoiler the answer because you wanted to figure it out too, so tell me if I should post some more of the letters I figured out first. (When you're less drunk perhaps, or hey maybe you're even more insightful when drunk ayyyeeeee)

Tasha has a fancy project!
For all future cosplaying events, and heck maybe even whenever I just want to wear it; I'm making a Star Trek TOS uniform dress (dat miniskirt ooh), the likes of this:

The dress is actually fairly complicated (all those pleats, several types of fabrics, and it has to be very fitted and tailored), luckily I've found the pattern and instructions on a Star Trek forum. (For free too, they usually cost quite a bit of money.)
For anyone interested, I've put the instructions and fabric specifications in spoilers.
Instructions:




I've bought all my fabrics and stuff today:

1: Patterning paper.
2: Rich red uni-stretch fabric for main dress (got about 3.5 metres). (Looks a bit darker/redder in real life, camera made it look slightly pinkish.)
3: Zipper in same colour as main fabric.
4: Same coloured thread.
5: Two different kinds of wavy golden-woven lint, which I'll try to combine to make a nice Rank trim for the sleeves.
6: Stretchy thick black fabric for the collar (0.25 metres).


Only thing I'm missing I think, is the patch. I think I'll order this one.


With the price of the patch already added in, I'll be at a total of about 35 dollars. Good investment, because if I'd bought even the cheapest costume version (that doesn't even look like the real thing at all), with shipping included, I'd have been at 60 dollars.
Extra thanks to my mom who'll probably end up doing the real work; drawing the patterns and sewing the thing together. She's very excited about this and it's super sweet. :3

Got almost-knee-high black boots today and black-tinted sheer stockings for my TOS dress, why can't I dress in Star Trek uniform everyday.

Am still trying to finish that uniform but it's so much work. If I don't finish it in time (convention is Saturday), I'll wear this one I have:

But I will do my best to make the red replica happen though, would be all of the awesome.

(Also, apparently this is the description of that dress I bought: 'ThinkGeek is not responsible for Captain Kirk hitting on you if you wear this dress. It's just that purdy (and you are, too!).' Kirk, do your worst, I am prepared.)

Front and back are pretty much finished, if they don't fit together now, I'm killing myself. (I have enough loose threads everywhere to hang myself with anyways.)
It was nice knowing all of you.
