Costumes from the original Tron on display...

In Steven Lisberger's original 1982 sci-fi movie Tron, Jeff Bridges hacker 'Kevin Flynn' is literally zapped into the world of a computer and forced to battle in gladiatorial games and team up with the heroic security program 'Tron' to stop the nefarious schemes of the Master Control Program.

Elois Jenssen and Rosanna Norton were responsible for creating the distinctive look of the costumes in Tron, which have become such iconic cult classics since their debut almost 30 years ago.

First up is the costume worn by Dan Shor as the Program 'Ram', who escapes with Flynn and Tron in the movie. His costume appears to be missing a belt, but he's holding his frisbee-like Identity Disc, so you can't complain.
