LOL.. I think he forgot to wear his TRON codpiece. :surprised

Despite the lack of the proper phsyique to pull of such an outfit the glow strips are pretty cool.. it'd be great if the whole outfit was traced with them.

It always amazes me what people will spend their time on.

We humans, I tellya.

TRON costumes. I didn't even know that was a thing people did.

Oh, it'd be easy to point and laugh, but when you think about it, how many hours do we all spend on personal projects, or things that make us happy--things that no one else would ever understand? :)

I once recorded my own re-arranged version of Jesus Christ Superstar with a guitar, bass, and my voice. Took me a year and a half.

I consider myself pretty normal, and yet that isn't too far removed from saying "No, I can't hang out this weekend. I've got to stay in and work on my TRON costume."

My friends and I just finished making a short documentary about the world of Scrapbooking. Our main subject was a woman whose life is nothing but taking pictures of her son in clothes that match specific papers she has in mind to use in the scrapbook, or searching through garage sales for the perfect accessory to glue onto a page-- But my favorite thing about her she's totally aware of how crazy her obsession is, and she embraces it.

Hey, if you're a decent person, I'm happy to be your friend, green spandex notwithstanding. :)

Thanks for that link, Sheep!

haha, that's funny. I couldn't finish it due to lack of interest and the man in the suit.

Ah... it is good to see that the mentally/socially challenged can make such enormous contributions to mankind and the general well-being of our species... we should all aspire to acheive such perfection as we journey through life.

Ahhhhhh!!! Is this part of some suicide prevention program? It should be.

I know that were I severely depressed, I would be cheered right up knowing that I am not making TRON costumes for fun. That is, unless I just made a TRON costume for fun.

If I had this guy's body type (which I do have, only with some more extra weight in the middle section) and I was making a tron costume (which I'm not... not because I don't wanna but because I suck at making stuff like that.. :D), I'd pick the ones that had a toga like cloth around them instead of the spandex only ones, kinda like the one this guy on the right has (http://www.cyberroach.com/tron/cell02.jpg)... :)

Can't really laugh at that guy, though.... I do know that if there were cameras around my home there would be footage of me doing stuff that would make the star wars kid ROFL... can't help but respect this guy for actually doing this in public... :applause:

Office Space...Uncanny!


Here's the guy's home page (http://www.conmicro.cx/). Email addy's match anyway. His home address/phone number is even available for further razzing. His home page url agrees with the email (Jay Maynard, jmaynard@conmicro.cx) posted on his Tron suit site so this must be Jay!
