If you are into to Dubstep then you know who this is and if you aren't into Dubstep now you know. Smiley  The artist known as Deadmau5 wears this cool mouse head at his shows.  My son really likes Deadmau5 and asked if I could make him a mouse head for Halloween. So, I found a cool tute on Youtube and the rest is history.  I took a few pics of the process but go so caught up in making it that I stopped. Sad But, the end result is amazing and he had so much fun wearing it at his bands Trunk or Treat night. We also went trick or treating at our mall and he had a lot of fun.
We put in led lights for the eyes and they had a twinkling option so they were really cool at night.
Thanks for looking at my creation. Smiley





A large hamster ball is used for the main part and it has to be jigsawed into shape. Thanks to hubby for that part.


A couple ears made out of foam.


Starting to cover the ears with fabric.





NIght shot to see the lights.


Here is a video of him wearing it on Halloween at the mall.

Oh how creative!! It looks great! You went a step beyond and added the lights which is a nice touch. I'd be proud to have that as my Halloween costume for sure. You get double kudos for the dubstep reference as well ;P

Hamster ball??!?  GENIUS!.  Love the costume, turned out great.  Might need to do this if he ever comes back to my town.  Love the fact that the eyes light up.
