Complete TRON costume
With all of the Comic-Cons, Wizard Worlds, and other geeky conventions, there is always an element of costumes and cosplay. If you plan on attending one of these events, you can really show off your geekspertise by creating your own costume.
In 2003, Jay Maynard made his own TRON costume for Penguicon 1.0, and he ended up winning the award for workmanship. Read Jay's explanation and step-by-step instructions on how he made the TRON costume. (All photos are used with Jay Maynard's permission.)
