If hoodies and t-shirts aren’t going to cut the mustard for your next big Tron cosplay, you have better options: either make your own or have the woman who made Daft Punk’s light-up costumes design it for you.
Janet Hansen runs Enlighted Designs a custom clothing company that specialises in the type of glowing get up featured in the forthcoming Tron Legacy. She’s worked with artists like French electronic duo Daft Punk – who also happen to be contributing the soundtrack to Tron Legacy – and MIA on custom gear. And she’s also the subject of a new episode of Vice TV’s Motherboard.
Enlighted’s custom designs start at $US100, so don’t expect to go into a bespoke light-up costume, Tron-themed or otherwise, without investing a few bucks. If you’d prefer to simply dress up as a well-lit pimp in the Tron world, Enlighted has ready to wear options.
Just want to make one yourself? Instructables has a step-by-step process on how to integrate electroluminescent wire into clothes you may already own.
