Tron-Inspired Illuminated Costumes
Artifice Clothing is a Toronto-based company that specializes in far-out costume designs, but this Tron piece definitely takes the cake. When seen in the light, the costume is a sleek and sexy all-white piece, but I think everyone really wants to see this thing in action in poorly lit locations.
Implications - The rise of geek culture has brought practices that were formally socially shunned, like cosplay, into the mainstream. Companies that recreate signature looks from movies, comic books and television series will appeal to this growing, upwardly mobile market.
