From the forums– Mike Prevette’s iconic looking GlitchyWeen helmet:
So in my typical fashion I discard any long term planning for a Halloween costume at the very last minute and take on insanely ambitious delusional projects in their place. It always involves a fair bit of scavenging and resourceful repurposing of things I’ve got laying around, this year it just so happened I had a bunch of WS2812 (Neopixels) LEDs and some styrofoam cups around the studio. I had seen people making cup lamps for a few years and then someone on my Instagram feed posted a picture of someone wearing one as a helmet. DING! DING! DING! insperation! Like almost everything I figured I could take it up a notch to near perfection with Der BlinkinLights.
