Description
Well it seems the Tron franchise is really making everyone booming and theres a lot of people doing cosplays as characters. But since i like making my cosplays my own I'm going for my own variation.

My fellow programme companion, Jake, has made a character design for myself and my friends so I've decided to go for it.

It will be mostly based on Anon from the Tron: Evolution game but with different EL light details and a different helmet.

I plan to use EL wire; Reflective tape and glo-tape (for awkward patterns). Might even use florescent blue paint in the areas of the EL wire for daylight shots.

I also if I can plan to make a like a sports hoody to wear if it rains or something just incase ^^:.

I have 2 cheapy Identity disks, whcih are just frisbees, which will be used for epic battles.

Time for some REAL use power!

Well have to get a good wetsuit first I think. I would try a zentai suit but I think wetsuit would be so much more durable to mess around with. Plus could be warmer ^^:.

I'm hunting on ebau for EL Wire and Wetsuits, I'll post links into Journals when I found something of interest if you like? =3

Due to finance constraints, I shan't be Troning it up this year, but next year I intend to cosplay my own OC from a long-running TRON rp I've been a part of, it'd be brilliant if we could meet up next year. :)

Next year seems more realistic anyways, I didn't really plan to cosplay this year but im still in maybes.

2012 was meant to be my retirement year after all ^^:

Helmet (Posted 4th February 2011)

So while I'm waiting for my Paypal details to confirm (waiting for those verify payments to send to my new account, I'm sure I dont need to verify it but I dont wanna risk it again even though there wasnt any problems before ^^:) I have been messing around with helmet ideas.

The new Legacy's clear half-visor look doesnt quite appeal to me, I prefered Anon's full faced look since it looks more sexy, plus it covers my ugly mug XD.

Thanks to good old HaloCostumingWiki.co.uk I found a rather snazzy base.
I'll be using the Forerunner Helmet Tester as the base since it has an interesting angular look to it. Plus its real easy to make.

With a few modifications it should look ideal. Of course I'll be using my old friend resin also but I'll take better care of doing it this time.
