DIY Daft Punk helmet is awesome Answered

Harrison Krix has made the best DIY version of the Daft Punk helmets, this is the Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo helmet, that I've seen so far. He made it over the course of 17 months and while that's quite a long time the results are pretty stellar. Check out the video with several hundred photos of the build process and click the link below for more info and pics.

Daft Punk: FINAL!

I'm really jealous of eccentric inventors such as you; I can't even begin to comprehend making something as intricate as this. In fact, that's how it is with 90% of the instructables I see. I really wish I could make these things. ;n;

Yea, I agree! I hate it when people say.... "That guy has too much time on his hands" and the other similar sayings. I say that most people do have extra time on their hands... Just depends on what you do with that time... Watch television? Watch some sports? Go down to the pub? Most people here probably go and build stuff!! LOL!

http://tajt.files.wordpress.com/2010/04/deadmau5.jpg that guy?

that looks pretty easy.....giant foam ball with a head space cut out of it, and big mouse ears...of course, i don't know if there are any electronics involved (i would imagine there would be, since it's a DJ's outfit...what's the point of having it be static?)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7Ib7A43fM8 here's an example of a basic one

The guy who made this is a pro.It would cost 2k+ for one.Plus,he says he's not making any more since he's been getting too many requests and he can't do his prop-making work.

Dude I'm twelve too and my older brother got me hooked on Daft Punk. Personally, I feel that Da Funk and Burnin' are noteworthy.

How the hell did he fabricate the acrylic visor for the helmet? Did he have a professional vacuum mould done?

Flawless finish. Does he work for movie production (like making props)? This is no amateur job.

Yeah, if you look around online you can find his website where he documents the build process for this helmet. And yes, he makes props for a living. Nicely done though, right?

One word or line isn't really enough to describe this, it's something you have to see isn't it?
