Daft Punk 'd TRON EL jackets

Sorry for the super long time in between posts. We have been slaving away on Tron jackets for the group Daft Punk 'd. I designed and built all of the light panels. The jackets were supplied by Daft Punk 'd. I used A4 sized EL sheets that were cut and spliced together to create the different shapes.  One jacket can be run off of either 4 9volt batteries or plugged into a wall unit.

Simple El Design.

Here is a jacket that I made for a friend. It runs on a 2 AA driver and is one uninterrupted piece of EL. Very simple but I like the flow of the design.

Tron Inspired EL Jacket

So here's some pics of my prototype Tron inspired EL jacket. The reflective tape that was used for the flash in the light pics turned out to not hold up to regular ware, so it wont be used in future jackets. The disk mount was an piece of back armor from an old motorcycle jacket. It just seemed to have the right kind of shape for the Tron universe.  While EL wire is much more affordable that EL tape or sheets I am just not as satisfied with the finished product. Unless someone just wants a bargain basement price on a jacket I will be focusing on EL tape in the future.

Here are some Photos of some of my earlier works. Hope that you enjoy them and feel free to ask any questions!

Black "Suit" Spiderman

Deadpool (to be fair, my wife did all the sewing, I just made the eyes and the equipment)
