Just ordered my suit for Quorra! Can't wait to get started on this!
I guess my only question might be the lighting options for the suit. Since I've noticed quite a few alternatives following the El Wire, I'm thinking of possibly getting some glow tape but the only problem would be that I've found quite a few glow tapes being sold on ebay with the mentioning that the light on them will only last for 6 hours.

I would use El Wire but I haven't the slightest clue on how to use it. ^^;

I guess it's a good thing that July isn't around the corner for AX,lol.

Okay, here's my question... Has anyone read through that HUGE thread on:

http://www.therpf.com/f24/tron-legac...30/index4.html

Enough to find out where the hex print fabric is? I'm seriously going to kill my self reading through all the pages to find it, although I am gaining a lot of good info. As long as I can get the fabric, I have the rest of the costume figured out, which is very excitingggg. <3

Thanks all!

How are you guys doing it? I'm taking a casting class at uni next semester so that'll probably be the last thing I do, but I was thinking maybe just buying sheets of rubber and cutting them down into body armor might be a cheaper and easier alternative.

Thanks for the help~!
Can I ask where you got your fabric in NY, and possibly a photo? I used to live there and I have people there who may be able to shop for me... <3 Thanks!

After researching the game and catching sight of the character Radia, it'd be fantastic to see the rest of her costume and make it.

Sorry I didn't get to this until now, busy during the holidays.

I read through the whole thing, top to bottom, but mostly for the EL strip/paper/wire systems that people used. As far as I know a lot of people were just getting their own print screened, it's about mid-thread I would say start there. It took me about 2 hours to read through the whole thing lol.

Is anyone working on a Siren at this very moment who would like to discuss bodysuit options? I am going to piece it together with a thick stretch material on my own rather than buying anything. I really don't think that I could just buy a white bodysuit and add the gray to it without it looking like crap.

Here's a pretty similar looking shoe for the sirens:

http://www.trashy.com/623-Brook-Shoes.3923-product.htm

It's the closest I've been able to find so far! Not exact, but it depends how picky you want to be, or how much time you are putting into the project.

*fades into lurking again*

Thanks Jem, very helpful!

Prime, what do you mean electroluminescent fabric? There are EL strips, wire and paper. All of which have different degrees of difficulty.

here are two shoes that would both need a little modification for the Sirens:
http://www.shiekhshoes.com/store/pc-...kh-poet-h.aspx
http://www.shiekhshoes.com/store/pc-...kh-rianna.aspx

However, it looks like the work might be changing the color or adding a covering to the shoe, but this way you don't have to mess with the structural integrity.

I got my shoes today They have the exact same heel as that used on the display costume:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...m_P1090001.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...m_P1090002.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...m_P1090003.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...m_P1090004.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...m_P1090005.jpg

I need to make new uppers and also paint them white but these are from the same mold
These are Taildrop by Nine West and other shoes with this heel are Twisted by Nine West and Pumpkin by Romantic Soles. All of these are out of stock most places but they canbe found on auction sites
