Description
When I first watched Tron: Legacy, I was amazed by how they combine actual light with special effects. You know, it's hard, they use blue screen but the light is blue.... I really love their design. I chose Flynn's above other Programs and Users because Flynn's happens to be... hmm cheaper I guess? I originally wanted to do CLU's Light Suit but I figured, I needed more Light Tape and Light Wire. So I had to cut down on costs. Also, being on the good side seems pretty amazing... You know how people would love to see heroes and throw eggs on villains.

I originally wanted to use Light Wire for the whole thing. But I realized, It would be too thin and weak. Light Tape is much brighter (due to it depth and light spread). I also chose blue Light tape/wire because well, it's the original colour of the light tapes/wires. So it appears white when off, but when electricity runs through, it would glow blue. Simple really.

For the base, I chose to follow strictly to the original Light Suit. Yes, double layer. Originally, the Light suit is made of latex and other complex, but I didn't want to use latex (I'll think about it). So I decided to use leather. I had to find two different types of leather jackets. The inside leather jacket should have reptilian skin-like. I have to be very careful with cutting the outer jacket. Also, the chest bit it kinda jolted out. I was thinking of double layer because I wanted to make it look as flat as possible.

Right now, as you read this, I'm sketching out on four angles. I'll post the sketches some time.
