Work on Tron's costume is still in progress!

Group 7 Access: all digital assets for Tron & Yori replica prop costumes!

July 16, 2022 - Tron's Silk Screens

Six screens coated and drying! Tron's chest transparency test fit. Finished Tron chest screen! Tron back graphic exposing to sunlight for 60 seconds! Finished Tron back graphic.

July 12, 2022 - Tron's Boots

These Johnnie-O Chelsea boots are a good base. Boot shafts cut from pleather. Shaft sewn and test fit. Fits well onto the boot. Superglue bonds the shaft to the boot instantly.

July 10 - Tron's Unitard Construction

8 yards of cotton/lycra blend fabric. Panels cut and sewing together. Trimming off seam allowance. Seam detail looks good with zigzag stitch. Pinning invisible zipper. Invisible zipper looks great! Finished unitard.

July 6, 2022 - Tron's Gauntlets

Made with 1/2" closed cell polyethylene from The Foam Factory (1/3 sheet, $18), and cut to shape using my gauntlet template here.

1/2" closed cell polyethylene. Cutting perfect edge for bonding. Double edged razor blade broken in half does the job! Beads of superglue work very well on this foam. Bonded. Making a bevel for inner elbow bend clearance. One done and scraps. Test fit. Mock-up with graphics.

July 2, 2022 - Tron's Gauntlet Graphics

Tron's arm gauntlet graphics are complete. Each section is a variation on a core set of shapes, as you can see. Inkscape masters here.
