Hi Guys

I am going to attempt to show you how I made my Daft Punk Helmet and suit from the film Tron.

We go to a festival each year that is mainly fancy dress and this year we had an epic task of making these suits. My helmet was fashioned from a Boba Fett Helmet from start wars and 8 months and about £250 quids worth of modelling gear.

The main materials used for this were:
  • Black sticky back vinyl
  • 2 x light strips for eyes
  • 4mm plasti card for face sculpting and ear pieces and head band across the top
  • Asetate sheet for eye visor
  • blue cable for rear of head
  • lots of araldite
  • Silcion, silver
  • sand paper for sanding edges down, wet n dry
  • sticky back mirror sheet - vinyl
  • Modelling foam for ear pieces (first attempt)
  • LED's for ear pieces, single hi power blue 3V
  • Filler spray (melted the foam, spray lightly and build up)
  • Black and Silver spray paint

Step 1: The Original Helmet

The helmet was made from a Boba Fett helmet which i cut to pieces and added some things to change its appearance.

I cut away a lot of the front and replaced it with plasticard and aluminium sheet.
COOL<br>GOOD WORK<br>^_^<br>
cheers pal...<br><br>happy new year
how can you see with blinding LEDs in front of your eyes and between you and the visor surface?
The back of the lights are heavily masked with duct tape to block out any light, however the glare from the visor is quite bad at night, daytime is fine. <br><br>Cheers
Who was the eBay vendor who made the eye (lights) piece?
Hi<br><br>Search for 'LED light strips 12v'<br><br>There is two strips, each folded once to make four layers. It's like a rubber strip that some people stick to their cars lights...<br><br>Hope that helps<br><br>Dom
hey man, u know that in alot of songs where they make a robot voice? its a talkbox, like they use for guitar except for a keyboard..... u should get a talkbox, hook it inside the helmet, and have a keyboard with a strap on..... it would give a goood effect....
I will defo look into mate, thanks for the advice!<br><br>Keep it daft.........punk
<p>Reminds me of mr. video from bit trip</p>
I would really like to make this before Halloween but I can't find the boba fett helmet you used. Where did you get yours and how much did it cost?
How did you make the visor? <br>Heat gun? Over and form casting of sorts?
Can make a video of this
You could sell these for a living... :p
What did you use for the visor?
where did you get the plasti card?
i chromed the helmet and removed all the screws i could find but just can't get it apart did you use a dremel to get the the face apart?
yeah the cheapest one is this one in america: getting one used can save some money, just change the tube.......
what? you destroyed the fett? :(
Its fetts fault for having such a lovely 'daft punk' shaped head. <br><br>

Why why must you do this to the fett man
Needs must dude, needs must...
