O.O holy moly that thing is awesome!!! *turns on 'around the world'* awww yeah. How long did it take to make?

it took about 3 hours to make the paper helmet half since its basic papercraft all programming pepakira and cutting included, the fiberglassing took about a hour, the lens took about 2 hours to cut right it was a one shot deal. the lights took about 2 hours to rig and 2 hours to make them all work right before installing them into the interior panel, and im sure i got another 2 hour stretch ahead for rear wiring and making it hook up to my silly head so it can be worn ,,, so all in all about 12 hours not to bad for half a day but of coarse the work was spread over days since alot of it cant be done one step after another things need dry time and such , and im sure i have at least 4-5 hours of research to get alot of the ideas together, the cost is paper $1 card stock, 14 dollars in leds , $30 security dome for lens , fiberglass maybe 3 bucks plastics used $5 so about $55 or so ,pretty cool for that cost not counting soldier and hot-glue

makes me listen to alive 2007 pricless ,,,, so you thought it was daft punk?
NOPE ,Chuck Testa! lol its seemed like less time and money till i added it all up, since its been in the works for 2 months
