So I made this for my bachelor party. My best man took me to Miami for Ultra Music Festival where we got to see Deadmau5 live in concert. It was definitely a trip of a life time!
Anyways, this is a replica of Deadmau5's first LED head. There were two visually identical versions of it. One contained a grid of 4-color LEDs behind the front half of the globe. It was heavy, and it required a special camera mounted to the chin and wired to screen goggles so he could see out. It was also tethered to the stage and likely controlled by someone off-stage. The other version was his "mobile" version. It didn't have LEDS in it, but it retained all the other visual detailing of the main version. If you ever watch his "Live at Earl's Court" movie on iTunes, it's the version he wears when he walks down the center of the stage. It's basically supposed to look like the LED version is "off," but since it's lighter and not tethered to the stage, he can roam about freely in it. I decided to make this one because I would later be wearing it in Miami and wanted to be able to see the show while wearing it.
