The making of the new Destructoid helmet

0

Want to know how a real pro does it? Don't ask me. The original Mr. Destructoid helmet, while awesome in its own homeless way, was built using a bunch of air conditioner sheet metal bolted and duct-taped together (kinda like our web design code! harrrr!). I had a lot of fun making it and it certainly got the job done, but each time I came home, I'd have to rebuild it with new air ducts because it would bend, dent, and fall on children each time I'd stop to admire a passing bald eagle. It was lethal, too! I'd always travel with bandages and I tried very hard not to slash anyone's face off with it. Luckily, all fatalities were minor and usually settled with beer. But an upgrade was clearly overdue.

As you saw in Rey's video, we commemorated three years of Destructoid by hiring a pro to build us an even bigger helmet with working LED eyeballs and in the right color -- and man, I can't believe what a fantastic job he did. Harrison Krix of Volpin Props blogged the entire construction process, and you won't believe all the work that goes into making these things. Give him some love in his comments if you dig his handiwork, won't ya?

Oh, one more thing. HEY GAMING PR DOODS, NEED A PROP OR COSTUME?  THIS GUY IS FOR HIRE! SMOTHER HIM WITH PROJECTS, MONEY AND HOOKERS!
