Don't give up! just because you can't be the best doesn't mean you're obsolete.

Hi Jia!

hehe I just came in here to post my completed 2nd build of my illuminated Quorra suit pics for you all to check out and you already found it. If you would like to see some more, I made a new album called Quorra Illuminated in my profile.

http://www.cosplay.com/costume/343944/

Also, for SDCC I want to do a SIREN costume as well, and I actually have a group of SIREN girls set for SDCC 2011. There are great reference pic links that I found thanks to the RPF group. Hope I can post the RPF link here to join our discussion group we have almost 70 pages of goodness in our Tron Legacy planning thread since August.

If you all want to learn how we lit up our Tron suits, not to mention where to get the custom HEX print for the bodysuit and even learn to mod the store bought identity disk to stay lite up contantly and even change the blue plastic rings to clear and change out the LED colors, please come read and join in. It's a ton to go thru but it's all there for you to absorb, learn and DO!

ENJOY!!!

That was unbelievably helpful! Thank youuu.

It probably won't turn out how I want it to, but I at least have a general idea of how I'll be making it now, and that's something...

Hey everybody, I'm making Quorra and Sam costumes and I need some advice! Because of my limited pattern making ability, I am making the armor out of duct tape, and I was going to cover it with some black vinyl. The armor base looks really good so far, and I haven't covered it yet, but I had an idea and I'm not sure if it will work. Would it work to cover the duct tape base with Mold Builder liquid latex rubber, or something like that, and paint over it? I've never worked with the stuff before, but I thought if it would work it would give more of an accurate surface for the armor.

Thanks!

I love the work you did on your Quorra. Thanks so much for posting the links! These will be fantastic research tools. ^^

Just got back from seeing it, and now I totally want to make one of the Siren's, Gem in particular. Damn you Tron...giving me more necessary work. >.>

Thank you. It was alot of fun and very tedious work all at once but worth it when you finally get the suit on you!

Can't wait to start my SIREN costume. Think I am only going to use reflective tape on this though, the kind with the gloss vinyl overlay on top.

That is what is on display at the Arclight in Sherman Oaks, CA and one of the acutal costumes worn in the movie. Whether it was worn on GEM, I have no idea. One of the other Siren chicks maybe??? but there are great close up pics ppl have taken of the costume on Flickr. The link can be found in the RPF link I posted to the Siren photos.

Truth be told Annisse I read the entire thread and follow you on facebook lol. I first learned about you from model mayhem you (and the rest of the guys on that forum) have been a huge help trying to get all of the electrical aspects of this costume done. Thank You, btw I know Shawn from those pics I am in the 501st with him.

Alright, I am totally doing Quorra. Fabric is already ordered and now I have a clear direction as to go about sewing the suit. Endless hours of staring at Tron threads, pictures, and videos really helps.

Hey guys!

I'm beginning the planning stage for my SIREN costume. I am planning to do Gem, but I may just end up doing an original SIREN. Either way, I'm super psyched about it! I actually just got back from seeing the movie for the first time a couple of hours ago, but I've been so excited about starting this costume for a few months!

So my big question right now is the SIREN shoes. I saw that you guys have discussed this issue a little bit already. I am thinking of two options right now... either 1) I get a pair of basic heels and sculpt the base piece that connects between the heel and the toe section. Or 2) Get a pair of wedge heels and drill a hole and sand it down to the desired shape.

My only concern with sculpting the shape myself is that I worry any material I use will not be durable enough, and/or may be too brittle and break from being walked on. My potential materials would be Bondo or some kind of moldeable plastic that could then be sanded down to the desired shape. My concern with option 2 is that the wedge material might also lose strength from my modifications.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

for shoes if your just modifying heels, use sheet metal for the insert. plus, you can sound like a robot when you walk. cool? i think so.

use 18 or 20 gauge probably.

bondo is a filler and is not made to be used by its self.

wood and a dremel tool would also maybe wrok


option 2 is probably better and it will be fine as long as you leave enough material there for support. i would go with a sawzall and a dremel tool instead of a drill.


also, make sure you can get in and out of your costume fairly easy.

thats where im at right now with a piece im making for my chest/waist. it looks great and all but its a work out to get it on and takes 2 to get it off. going to modify it tomorrow hopefully
