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!

This is amazing, the detail and effort is impressive.

Hey, buddy thanks for providing such a cool and interesting list. I can learn much thing from your article, and I can also share with my friends!!!

So cool! I love Daft Punk! :D

Amazing! but so many work... :P

AWESOME love these helmets :)

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;

thanks dear this is nice i like it..

this is pretty damn awesome!

Holy F---! dats awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i noticed you habe like 10 heads.....can i have one??? u know cause it is soo EPIC

Well written article, well researched and useful for me in the future.I am so happy you took the time and effort to make this. See you around

this....is....AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! holy crap this is so cool!!!!!! dude can you post an instructable on HOW you make this!?

.............. EPIC........ this makes the halo helmet i made look like a pile of news papers. dude this is epic.

It looks so good because he did it the hard way, man i wish i had a Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo helmet. MAking one in litttle big planet 2 is not as good as having one in real life

you know... people tell others doing useless things "get a job!!" i am have say you just made jobs... this is really great.. are you going to sell them?

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!

I'M JUST SITTING HERE AND DROOLING

Wow yo props props.

Now we need to see a good approximation of the new Deadmau5 head. That is amazing.

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

Friend made one.. later added the "press to turn on" under-shelf lights (circular, adhesive on one side.. you know what i'm talking about..) as eyes.. (Pic is a vector conversion, can't find original photo.)

i would like someone to put a full instructable on for this so i could make one myself, i think it would be briliant for fancey dress partys :)

Can I PLEEEEEAAAAASSSSSEEEE buy one of them from you? Even without electronics it would be bomb! Ive been try to make something with a face shield like that for months.

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.

DAFT PUNK IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ive been listening to them longer than i can remember P.S im twelve

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.

Oh my God I'm totally jealous!

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

in the video description he says that he had a company do all the vacuu-forming for him

Very impressive... Impressive indeed...

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?

i think i saw this guy at comic con

I also discovered this guy a while back. It's cool to see that he succeeded.

Man i saw this ages ago back when he was on the first step. I found him somehow with his big daddy build and have followed him for a while. AWESOME


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