    I guess I'd better post this

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    *sighs* well Justin has been bugging me about making a post on this sooo....here it is. I'm making a mau5head. Now, before reading this (and I told Justin the same when he asked) no, this isn't a prop build, this is me thinking, "you know, I should have one of these. I'm gonna change some stuff though."
    Anyways, On to the pics. I know, I know, it would've been easier to do it with an acrylic globe. Easier, more accurate, but not cheaper. And I have no job. So I used a balloon from the car dealer my mom works at. It inflated to a roughly 14" diameter, so it worked fine.

    Just a quick size-reference to a Thomas

    Busted out the sharpie

    Day 1 of this sweet papier mache garbage

    Wanted to see what kind of an effect fiberglass mesh tape had. Turns out, it added a ton of structural integrity. So you'll see a lot of it throughout this (and most of my other) thread(s).

    Layer #2

    Just a quick shot of my workspace after moving off the kitchen table (my dad got a bit angry at me for the whole kitchen table thing)

    Just ideas for ear size/shape...Before you all start, I know his are round and mine aren't, I did this on purpose, because I like the way this looks better

    Those scissors....incredibly sharp

    Aw yis, check out my sexy arm

    I dunno, seems secure to me

    Coming up with ideas to hold these huge things on

    Yeah, this is what I've been using. Turns out you can get what is essentially a super deep paper cut....from fiberglass.....ow

    Dat sharpie...(I have a tendency to draw things out with sharpie to get an idea of what I'm doing)

    Just tons of dimensioning lines and whatnot

    It sounds like a jet when I do this XD

    Cut the mouth out

    Cleaned up the mouth edges, just letting it sit and dry....with assistance.

    Was hit by an amazing idea on holding these on, but there's better pics in a second

    Oh, there's both on

    I used a bit of window screen for the mouth, folded over four times, it looks quite good (I think)

    Cleaning up/reinforcing the mouth edge/building the lip...there's that tape stuff again

    Just a close up of the lip region

    One of the top

    From the side

    I remade the mouth/screen thing but...

    This effing thing....Might need a whole remake, if I can't salvage this

    Looks ok from there though

    This is what I was talking about with the ears, I just cut two huge slots in the mau5head at a 60 degree angle instead of 15, because I liked the look of 60 better

    Yeah, there's one from the back of the slots



    Anyways, that's it for now, I've been working on this since.....Tuesday the 13th I think? So far I haven't spent a single dollar, this has just been improv-work so far. Anyways, tell me what you think, suggestions, ideas, etc.



    Forgot to mention, this is gonna be a giant disco ball like DaftSauce's helmets, except it's gonna be entirely disco-fabric wrapped. Either that or I go Deadpool. Either way, really. Depends which one I feel when I go fabric shopping. *shrugs*

    Re: I guess I'd better post this

    This blows every build I have seen on here out of the water, including mine. You know why? Because while I am 3k in the hole, your in the green. I seriously love the thrift of it all, including the fact I could do it too with random crap I have in my house. Hell dood, you've inspired me to try this.

    That's incredibly crafty! The ears seem a bit off, though.

    Haha thanks, like I said, the original angle was 15 degrees and I liked the look of 60 better, and his ears were originally 13" x 13" and mine are something like 14" x 12"

    Yeah, this will probably take less time because it's so much easier to make....XD I'm waiting to see what it's like when it's done too

    I'm not a HUGE deadmau5 fan, but I listened to >album title goes here< and I LOVE it....also, I just started listening to more of his older stuff like Random Album Title and For Lack Of A Better Name for inspiration while working on this....not bad.
