Tron Siren dress

Hi all!

I'm working on some dresses inspired by the Sirens from TRON so I though it could be a fun first build thread on the RPF for me!

I'm working with my always partner in crime for all things TRON Annisse Damfatale who will be doing up the lights once I'm done sewing.

Here's our pattern all laid out, some pieces are doubled up because I have to alter the shapes to create the dress silhouette

Got all the pieces cut out. I was able to find an okay rubberized spandex for the project. The white is only a 2 way so that's a pain. They grey is a 4 way but a bit dark and the coating is fragile. The materials are a challenge to work with but hopefully it survives being worn!

And here's the first mostly finished sewn up dress. Had some winkling issues in the front which I have now hopefully fixed. Had to rip out the panels and recut them.

Time to start fixing up the lights in my disk and cleaning up the hub.

The disk was fixed up and had more lights added by Annisse's hubby a few years ago. But due to the many drops it has suffered I need to pop it open and see what I've messed up and do some rewiring.

Mr. Roboto will be helping with this stuff!

The hub came from someone on the RPF long ago in the main TRON thread. I think we're just going to completely remake it so it will sit against the disk a little better, but if not I'll be sanding it down and repainting and just generally cleaning it up.

Now we play the wiring game! Anyone ever use these products for connecting EL Tape joints?

And flawless execution! Tried both the staple method and conductive thread method and had perfect results. No loss of light and great stability. I'm putting the glue on over the connection points on the back side just to help everything stay solid but I'll see how the stress test goes tomorrow after the glue cures

Patterning out my EL tape to do all the connections tomorrow. Gentle painters tape laid on the costume that I'll then take off and put down on the EL tape and cut to the correct lengths. I won't have enough to complete the disk on the back but I'll get just about everything else!
