“What’s the next best thing to hopping on a plane to Mexico City to see one of Daft Punk’s last North American stops on the Alive 2007 tour on October 31? How about dressing up as Daft Punk for Halloween? We know you’re thinking about it, googling “Daft Punk Helmets” or “Daft Punk Masks” and salivating over the possibility of picking up an original pair for $65,000 (even though they’re absolutely not for sale) or wishing that that Alterian Inc., the special effects studio that Daft Arts used for the “Technologic” video and Electroma, had been more proactive in making an actual outfit commercially available. But making your Halloween wish come true is going to take some creative thinking and crafty skills.
For one idea, we asked the Daily Swarm reader Traci Kaye, a fashion designer at Foley + Corinna, for some advice on how to make a Daft Punk helmet on the cheap and she came up with a fantastic possibility, one-upping us by making it a full-body costume. For simplicity’s sake, Traci chose the summer concert encore version of Daft Punk for her costume design, and once she got past the idea of homemade fiber optics, the final outfit came together pretty fast.”
