Can't see them as I'm not on Facebook, but that thumbnail looks awesome! It's amazing that nearly two years after the movie came out, we're all still in this thread learning new things and making our costumes better.

Making some progress on the Tron Punk frontier, see my thread here:

Now *that's* a lot of soldering!

Hi, can someone here make me a Tron costume? Or more importantly something similar for my dog, maybe a light cycle or something else from the film. I need a dog an owner themed costume combo, and I'd love to do the Tron one, except this is beyond my skill set... Thanks.

[FONT=Verdana][FONT=Verdana]If you want a super simple costume; wear all black and wrap EL wire around your legs, arms and chest. Same thing for the dog. Find a dog shirt and attached some EL wire onto the shirt. [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]An easier costume would be black jeans, black shirt, black boots, and attached some El wire or tape to a black jacket. Instant flashback young Kevin Flynn. [/FONT]

Can go even easier, black outfit and instead of EL wire buy some bulk reflective strip adhesive tape. Won't look like much at first, but take a picture with flash and POW, tron costume.
Here's a 50 foot roll. Recommend sewing in place, adhesive falls off fabric.

I attached the wire with a clear thread whip stitch and leaving sections of wire at my elbow and knees free to bend gradually to avoid sharp bends in an effort to prevent breaking. I wore it 4 times for 4-6 hours at a time and never had any problems with breaking.

Annisse - your Quorra costume is awesome!
Sep 11, 2012, 4:52 PM - Re: Tron Legacy Costume
A question for those that have finished a Tron Legacy costume. How many layers do you have under your costume? I know for the movie they had a little more so not to get burned by the wire and lights.... thanks

Okay, I'm going to sound like a noob, but there's no other way to ask this.
What is the stretchy materiel made of? Is there a manufacturer that sells the materiel online? Or is this something that has to be made by yourself?
And AMAZING costume by the way.
Sep 11, 2012, 8:56 PM - Re: Tron Legacy Costume
I don't know if there is any manufacturer per say of specific Tron Legacy spandex but Soulinertia (a member here) did a run of it a while back.
Sep 15, 2012, 8:24 PM - Re: Tron Legacy Costume
I'm putting together a Kevin Flynn robe-set (with El-Tape) with identity disk (courtesy of Soul Inertia); I'm having a difficult time hunting down anyone else who has attempted this; or how they created the back-mount for the identity disk. Any help for a newb?
Sep 19, 2012, 8:13 PM - Re: Tron Legacy Costume
OK so it's been a while for this post but but hey Flynn Lives!
Anyway for those of you who but a suit arena / Clu / Rinzler
How did you build up the details shoulders etc? Stacking sheets of foam?
Sep 20, 2012, 2:15 PM - Re: Tron Legacy Costume
Altesse: I've been following this for a while, I'm working on a Rinzler as well. (I'll post some pictures soon). What did you use to light the gloves?
Sep 20, 2012, 2:57 PM - Re: Tron Legacy Costume
colonelmasako, you said you used stuffing for the light distribution. What kind of stuffing?
Sep 20, 2012, 5:07 PM - Re: Tron Legacy Costume
Since I'm asking questions I thought I'd also post some pics to show the status of my current Rinzler costume. One thing I wanted to focus on being able to do was take one disc and split it into two discs like he does in the movie. So my current discs unfortunately do not light up, but they do split, and they glow pretty well in light. I used reflective tape.
Sep 20, 2012, 5:58 PM - Re: Tron Legacy Costume
Good idea with the splitting disks. What holds them together, and how easy is it to 'split' them apart?
Holy Large Pictures, Batman! =)
Sep 20, 2012, 8:23 PM - Re: Tron Legacy Costume
If you're still interested, Annisse, here's a few tutorials on how to make various ones.
This one right here is the simplest version, definitely best for small apartments or lofts, and easy to store: Make a good, cheap, upgradeable sheet plastic vacuum former
This one requires some electrical work: Vacuum Former
Another simple version: Vacuum Forming
Hope that's helpful.
Sep 21, 2012, 12:32 PM - Re: Tron Legacy Costume
@Crimson: Yeah sorry about the large pictures. It's my camera's default setting. The discs are held together with 3 magnets on the outer ring of each disc. They come apart quite easily if you pull or slide them, but otherwise stay together quite well. One of the discs has an additional 3 magnets on its inner ring to attach to the mount on my back. (The disc on the right in the second picture)

I bought this jacket at ROSS for $28. It is a GREAT budget Flynn "Flashback" jacket. I will be adding the EL strips in it for the 30th Celebration!
