Best DIY Costume Ever: Tron meets Daft Punk

It’s never too early to plan for Halloween. With a slew of new movies to spark your imagination either being released or coming out in the near future, it’s time for you get crafty and put all those crappy, plastic, mass produced costumes to shame. If you’re looking to create something the likes of Tron, which is due out in December, we’ve got just the thing for you.

They’ve put together a handy little guide for you to fashion your very own light up clothing for a fraction of the cost you’d be paying for Janet Hansen’s work. Seeing as how we’re pretty tired of things “SPARKLING” in the sun, let’s get ready to usher in the age of things glowing in the dark:
