Daft Punk

After many months of working on this project I finally finished. It took forever and I got about 2.5 hours of full use out of it. I wore this as I checked ID’s at the bar I worked at.

As the drunken crowd of people continued to slap the helmet (out of excitement that they thought I was RoboCop) they screwed up some of the electronics, and due to the wonderful weather of Jacksonville that doesn’t like jackets….I had to take it off, but I’m proud that I actually finished it.

This was started with Pepakura, fiberglassed and then bondo. I used a chrome spray paint, but I suggest to try something else because it didn’t hold up at all.

    • I bought the jacket at Burlington Coat Factory, but the material for the letters I bought from JoAnnes Fabric. The brand of the top fabric is made by Spirits and it was out around Halloween time. Its black mesh with 1/4″ red reflective squares. It allowed for the light to shine through, but also to be visible in the day light.

      The way I did it was in layers: 1st layer was black felt type material, then EL Wire, then a double layer of any red material (i did this to diffuse the light a little), and then the red material you see.
