Halloween 2013 BONUS!: Homemade Daft Punk Costumes

I actually had two costumes this year.  In addition to the Breaking Bad costumes, I also made some Daft Punk costumes for me and my gf.  While I didn't wear the Daft  Punk costume to work, it's too cool not to post.

Here's a music video we made for fun, check it out!

The helmets, gloves, and necklaces were made from scratch.  While not as technically accurate as some of the others on the web, the illusion was there, and we were very recognizable.  Here a few video writeups on the build:





Building the Daft Punk Guy Helmet
This was by far the more difficult of the two.  Supplies used:






Building the Daft Punk Thomas Helmet
Credit for this design goes to some awesome instructions I found on this site: http://www.robotspacebrain.com/daft-punk-helmet/ .  His files were key, though I made many of my own modifications.

Supplies used:





Building the Daft Punk Gloves and Chains
The finishing touch!  Supplies used:




  • Black Gorilla Gloves from Home depot (any black gloves will do, as long as hot glue will stick to it)
  • Chrome & gold spray paint
  • Chrome & gold adhesive vinyl (http://www.metrorestyling.com/category-s/1310.htm)
  • Craft foam (Micheal's)
  • Wood glue and water mixture to stiffen the craft foam
  • Hot glue
  • Chrome and gold color pull chains (for a ceiling fan/lamp, from Home Depot)

What spray paint did you use to get the chrome mirror effect? Looks great!
