    MickeyTron Lunacy

    Last October we went to Disneyland for Mickey's Halloween Party wearing homemade, lighted MickeyTron costumes. We took tons of photos and videos and in this trip report I promised to share all this spring. And now seeing as April Fool's Day is upon us and Tron: Legacy will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD in just a few days I figure now is the perfect time.

    I have three things to share with you: video of our two nights of fun in costume at Disneyland, a how-to/making-of video that gives you a look into what went into making these electroluminescent costumes, and a few photos. Enjoy!

    Tron: Legacy Posters Parodies





    A Few Favorite Photos of Our Costumed Nights in Disneyland












    I know the Halloween Party in Disneyland was controversial to some. But I have to say those were two of the most fun and magical nights we've ever had in the park and we look forward to many more awesome Disneyland Halloweens!

    You can see tons more photos and get more information about the project on my personal web site ABOMIBOT.com.

    Those costumes are so cool! Just curious, what did all that gear end up costing? (you cut the video clip of you ordering it online before we could see the total, hehehe)

    Re: MickeyTron Lunacy

    Thanks for the kind comments, folks!

    We got our EL-Wire at coolneon.com and those wondering about cost can do your own legwork on that one. I would caution the greatest investment, however, is that of time. But we knew what we were getting into and we had a blast working over many weekends and enjoyed it like a hobby.

    This isn't the first time we've done this, by the way. In 2008 we took our nephew and our best friend to WDW for Halloween and the four of us had EL-Wire costumes similar to these. Although they were cruder, not as sturdy and used less wire. You can read about that in this trip report.

    Awesome work, and the video was perfect! Long enough to be funny, but not too long.

    Here's a comparison between the original poster image of Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde versus our recreation... with liberties taken, of course.
