The ‘Look’ of ElecTRONica! Part Two: The Faces of a Program

posted on December 23rd, 2010 by Robin Trowbridge, Entertainment Show Director, Disneyland Resort.


Greetings, Programs! Last week, we introduced you to part one of our series, “The ‘Look’ of ElecTRONica,” and showed you what a program wears and where the inspiration came from. Today, we want to follow up with Part Two: The Faces of a Program.

Faces of Electronica Faces of Electronica

To bring a program to life for ElecTRONica and actually give it a look of its own, the costumes had to be unique and inspiring. A program is not complete without the individual hairstyle and make-up.

Our hair and make-up team received clear direction from our partnership with the “TRON: Legacy” film production team on how to create the hair and make-up looks. To capture the mystery of the cyber realm, these looks feature a variety of cool tattoos, inspired directly by “TRON: Legacy.” Each tattoo is created with a specially designed stencil and airbrushed onto the skin, using paint that illuminates the design for a full night of adventure.

It was very important to our team stay true to the movie, and we’re thrilled with the creative results that were achieved. Thanks to attention to the smallest details, our guests can enjoy an immersive experience that brings the fantasy that much closer to reality.

So when you visit ElecTRONica, take a closer look at the programs you encounter. See how many of the 10 different make-up looks you can identify and recognize.

The ‘Look’ of ElecTRONica! Part One: What a Program Wears

posted on December 16th, 2010 by Robin Trowbridge, Entertainment Show Director, Disneyland Resort.


From the moment you enter the Grid, you are immersed in the world of Tron. Noticeably present are the inhabitants of this strange cyber world — programs, sirens, servers and our ElecTRONica host Eckert.

But where did their look come from? Today we want to introduce you to the first of two posts on the “look” of ElecTRONica.

All programs wear costumes inspired from the action-adventure film, “TRON: Legacy.” Their bodysuits feature variations on an asymmetrical design, which helps to express the independence and individuality of the wearer.

Here is an image from the actual film designs, shared with us by our friends at the Walt Disney Studios. Check out how the original concept was transformed into one of the looks for the film.

ElecTRONica Costumes Inspired by 'TRON: Legacy'

Check out this video and hear more from one of our Costuming team members, Paulette Uris, who helped bring the look of “TRON: Legacy” to ElecTRONica.

So, want to see these unique costumes in action? Make your way to Disney California Adventure park where the world of Tron comes to life!

Next week, we’ll follow up with “Part Two: Faces Of A Program” as we focus on the hair and make-up that is an important element to this striking look.
