lthough I’m not the biggest fan of Daft Punk (I know, crazy, right?), I will say that I have always enjoyed their visual aesthetic, specifically pertaining to their costumes. So when I saw this prop work by Atlanta graphic designer Harrison Krix, I was completely blown away.
Apparently, Harrison decided that he wanted to produce his own Guy Manuel Daft Punk helmet. Obviously he nailed it, but the amount of time and dedication to seeing this through to its completion is what I’m most impressed with. This type of dedication and hard work by Harrison and people alike will always beat out the run-of-the-mill crap that others try to pass off as “great” in my honest opinion.
Just look at the subtle details of the helmet, and the LED (diodes). You can’t just make something like this overnight. This obviously takes a lot of planning, frustration, trial & error, and above all, patience.
Mad props (no pun intended) to Harrison for producing such an amazing likeness. Also, be sure to visit Harrison’s Flickr to see his photo journal of his 17-month-long journey for producing this beautiful helmet (and yes, it actually did take him 17 months to make this). Now that’s dedication.
