I'll post more when they start showing up across the interwebs....but here are some from the owner...
Got the helmet back after a few days.....owner wasn't able to get as much body work done as we would have liked...but with the crazy deadline ahead, he had to push forward and paint it. He did paint it with Plasti-Dip, so it can all peel off and some serious body work can be done before the next closest Deadmau5 concert.
So my task was to mount all the lenses, lights, helmet and wire everything.
Mounted the eyes first and secured the EL panels behind them.
Then test fitted the hard hat into place before a combo of glue, fiberglass resin and expanding foam were applied.
Then I secured the face plate and fabricated a temporary mount for the mouth lights.
After all of this, everything needed wired up and secured. There were 3 main battery packs that needed mounted, as well as another smaller pack for the EL wire.
I got everything wired up and gave it back to the owner....he was going to install the EL Wire.
This project was a pretty good experience.....can't wait to finish it up down the road and make it SHINE!!!
Ok......so this one was an interesting one.
Had a past client come in with an idea...just needed help putting it into physical being.
He wants to be Deadmau5 for Halloween. Only problem is, without spending a bunch of money online, you can't find these helmets just laying around.
I gave him my recommendations (which were make the damn thing sturdy enough to last for many parties down the road) and we went into action.
Since SEMA was coming up, and I had another big project coming in (see later pics), I could only take it so far....and was rushed to get it to the stage it was when it left the shop.
Owner is going to do the body work and another painter is going to finish the helment.
Then....if time permits....the helmet will be back here and I'll assist with the wiring and completion of the helmet.
So far, i'm happy with what I've done in only a few short (working) hours.
Here's a few videos....note the sound is just the 6.5" comps and 6x9's running off an amp....no subs....sounds good so far!
