Daft Punk costumes

[derektroywest] has posted a detailed step by step breakdown of making a Daft Punk costume. They’ve done a great job, the overall look is very convincing. They include links to where to get each part as well as information on how they pulled it off. The helmets were inspired by the timelapse Daft Punk helmet build. As you can see in the video, they don’t have the entire visor made into a display, but the effect is quite nice, especially because it is multi color.

  1. Next on HACKaday – how to make a corncob bird-feeder.

    Corncob.
    Hangar.
    Peanut Butter.
    Outside.

    Hack it up!

  2. Could you show me how to put a daft punk costume on my bird feeder?… that sounds like a totally awesome hack…

  3. the most annoying thing in this video is this electro crap version of metallica’s “until it sleeps” . . . this is blasphemy.

  4. I through the corncobs outside (which I previously hacked)
    Also, I hacked the birds by gluing the LEDs to them.

  5. some things light up, put them on other things.

    I think Edison invented this hack.

    (Of course I love Daft Punk and Tron, and the Borg, but I have yet to consider making a costume a “hack”)

    Now if there was a “project runway” dedicated to EL wires and LED helmets, I might watch.

  6. WoW. Lots of geeks pissed of cause they
    don’t have a girl friend.
    I currently don’t have one but I still find
    the video very geeky.

    Awesome costumes.

    BTW: Which music is that on the video?
