How, in the name of all things Fratzog, have I managed to stay out of this thread for so long?
Well, me mates, like most of you, I wanted to be all spiffy for the premier. So, with a week til, I started work.
I made up a character on the spot and began my design work. While I like the newer designs, I just couldn't bring myself to stray from the older movie designs. (I was very sad that the new designs were so sleek and didn't have much in the way of circuitry.)
So, my design crossed the two, with heavy inspiration from Castor/Zuse. My favorite character from the commercials, and almost remained so in the movie (second ONLY to Kevin Flynn, holy shazzbot I want to do that costume...).
Because I'm a broke-mo-fo, I went with the cheap, and ridiculously easy route. I got an all white linen blazer, a white tie, and white flats. Already had the pants and shirt...
I used (again, broke and lazy) 3D fabric paint. Yes. Of course, because of that, I didn't glow (till I found the blacklight, but that's a story for another day). However, the costumes from the original movie didn't glow until the effect was added in post. This rationalizing made me feel a great deal better in my costume. xD
And, without any further ado or making you read anymore, here you are...
The "Poor Man's TRON Suit"
