I like it. Is that EL wire that you used on it?

That is indeed El-wire. It's nice when technology catches up with movie special effects.

Did I read somewhere that you're (considering) using El-wire for a costume?

The TRON fangirl in me is squealing so high right now that only dogs can hear it. XD I very rarely see TRON cosplayers, so thumbs up to you!

Thanks for your comments.

I really enjoyed making this costume and I'm glad it was so well received even if I was mistaken for a power ranger by a 12 year old! The only negative point is the severe headache it gives me due to the amount of electronics packed in to the suit, many near my head.

I think this costume is now in retirement, it is over 5 years old, but Tron 2 is coming out soon..... who knows?

Looks superb. Are you positive the electronics caused the headaches? eg did it happen more than once??

Without a doubt Ranma1-2.

It happened evertime I wore the helmet, and stopped once it was removed. It's because there is an inverter in the helmet which is sitting directly on the top of my head. The electronics elsewhere in the costume weren't a problem, just the one in the helmet.

Ooooo. That sounds so not good! So the actual inverter must be causing some sort of dangerous emissions. :S ok so if the inverter box is mounted somewhere else like in a back pack and wrapped in silver foil it might be ok to use?

I had several other inverters on my person and they were fine, it was just the one in the helmet that caused the problems. I think it was because it was in direct contact with my head whereas the others were elsewhere on me (back, arms, etc).

In a back pack would be fine and you shouldn't need to wrap it in tin foil either.

Ok, no foil then ^_^
Still, makes you wonder, if they are emitting micro waves or something.

I think it's the very high pitch noise the inverter emits when switched on that caused it, especially since it was in close proximity to my head. This meant I heard it constantly.

It was several years ago when I bought it, but if I recall it was from loopy lights
