1:1 Papercraft Tron Helmet by Tektonten 1:1 Papercraft Tron Helmet by Tektonten
Here's another papercraft based on a 3D model from the Tron 2.0 video game. This is the helmet the character Alan Bradley wears after he is teleported inside a computer. Bradley is the computer programmer who wrote the Tron program. Since in the original movie the same actors who play the programmers also play the programs the programmers wrote, you might say that this is Tron's helmet as well. A download of the template is available here -->[link]

I downloaded the templates for this helmet, all three bit forms, and tron's disk. So far the disk and the "yes" bit are done, and I'm currently working on the helmet. I wonder if it's possible to use this in a Tron cosplay? You have a lot of talent with these papercraft templates. I've never played Tron 2.0 but it sounds really fun.

Yes, I think it's possible to use the helmet for cosplay. Some followers of my blog wore them to the movie theater when they saw Tron: Legacy. They used my template, but downsized it and redrew it in Adobe illustrator. The story and a download of the smaller template is located here:…

Interesting. I didn't watch Tron Legacy until it was out a couple years. At that time I had never even seen the first Tron. Now I've seen both of them, and I consider them two of my favorite Live-action Disney Movies. I've never played any of the Tron video games however.

I was wondering what it would be like to have the FULL Original Tron suit. The helmet I could use from your template (I think my cranium is actually large enough :D). Then I could try to somehow find a suit, which I'm not looking forward to. The actor who plays Alan and Tron (I forgot his name) said in an interview, that their suits were the equivalent to a "Male Thong." In the filming they basically drew designs on the suits and every set was in black and white. All the color was made when the frames of each shot were sent overseas.
As for the disk, I have a few frisbees that are the same shape and size as the disks, I could just cover them with paper based on your templates (or I could resize the templates and fit the frisbee inside for more solid structure). I would have to decide between Flynn's or Tron's suit. I'll have to look closely at the original film for footwear. Finally, I need to find out how to get the blue glow that some people have accomplished. Perhaps I could do grey face-paint to finish the look.

I hope I can get this all done before Halloween. Then I could go around, looking like I'm from the Digital World, and say "Greetings Program." lol

If I remember right, Jeff Bridges may have set a day of the week where he just wheres the original Tron helmet the entire day.

Can u wear it?
Tektonten Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Sure! The original helmet is a little large for some folks, so someone else took it and downsized it a bit. The smaller version is found here: [link]

Thanks! It is not quite as hard as it looks. You just need to have the right software tools. ;)

That's some serious paper crafting skills you got there (or at least I'd find it somewhat hard to do)!
