in case anyone's interested, here's a Tron Legacy version of the costume: http://troncostume.wordpress.com
TR must have coughed up more than a coffee mug or a tshirt for you to let them publish those pics. Honestly, the costume is well done, a lot of time and effort into it, but........well, just, I was thinking you'd have to have some balls to wear that but, well....yeah.
he he he LOLOLOLOLOL !!!OMG, ROFLMAO, GUFFAW! Oh no, SO many comments,must make them go away, must stop before I burst! Oh priceless, thanks for the pics! :D Peter Griffin comes to mind...lol...must make it stop! :D That should go into history as one of TR's best headlines, right after 'How to rebuild a Windows server with paperclips and RedBull cans' [b]"How to make a TRON costume!"[/b] Man, you just can't make that stuff up, the makings of quality stand up. LOL Just too good for words! Great topic for the day.
I salute you for having the bravery to wear tights; I don't have it. Myself, I'm at that 80/20 stage of life: wishing I was 80 pounds lighter and 20 years younger!
Cups are fine if you're protecting your jewels from being smashed, but they're not the most comfortable things to wear for long periods of time, especially in costume at a convention. (Try wearing one all day at a martial arts competition, ugh!) So, why were you looking at his crotch GSG?
The costume itself is great. The guy did a good job, and as I was looking at it, there was this camel-toe right there in the center of the picture. If you look at the design on the legs, they are practically arrows pointing right there and yelling "look at my camel-toe". I have a friend who does Ren-Faires, and most of them that wear tights have something to prevent this phenomenon. I'm far from being a prude, but I may have to bleach the eyeballs after this picture.
The ole moose knuckle, generally a term saved for women in leotards or bikinis though. LOL, oh god, what a day! Hopefully you managed to get out of the way when 'it' jumped out at you! I'd even go as far as wearing matching shorts over top, or maybe a feminine napkin to 'smooth out' the old fella. SOMETHING, PLEASE GOD, DO SOMETHNG ABOUT IT! All the LED's in the world aren't going to cause enough of a distraction in this case.
