How to make a Daft Punk helmet in 17 months

For more info on the build and process, check out my website:

This video chronicles my odyssey with replicating the iconic gold Daft Punk helmet worn by Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo. Over the process, I took hundreds of pictures, mostly because my crummy digital camera I shoot with has a bum autofocus. What you see are the collection of all of these images, and a little hint of video as well.

Programming for the helmet code was done by James Moss.

A lot of people asked why I don’t have this in my store, and the answer is: I need to resculpt this helmet. If you’re interested in seeing that happen, you can donate to my Patreon ( and at $2k/month, I will be able to set aside the time to redo this helmet properly. After that, I will sell raw casts of the helmet for people interested in finishing their own.

Otherwise, sorry, no, there’s not really a way for me to take time away from my paid work to revisit this project, as cool as it is. Thanks for your understanding.
