You might think it’s far too early to start thinking about a Hallowe’en costume, but if you had hopes of following in Volpin Props’ footsteps and making your own Daft Punk helmet, you’re about 3 months too late. That’s because it took them 4 months to make this replica of the robo-like helmet that Thomas Bangalter wears during performances and other public appearances.
And even if you did have aspirations of building one of these yourself 3 months ago, the process looks very involved, particularly if you’re completely unfamiliar with prop-making techniques. And, Harrison Krix has been through all of this before, as last year he completed a 17-month build of Guy-Manuel’s helmet. AKA, the other Daft Punk guy.
So you’re probably better off just sticking with that tried and true hobo getup come October 31st.
