Dia de los mau5 by weremagnus Dia de los mau5 by weremagnus
Voting is over, but you can still see the entry page here. Thank you everyone who showed their support and vote!

Inspired by the patterns and bright colours of Mexican 'Day of the Dead' candy skulls. The colours are blacklight reactive, making the mask vibrant both in the dark and the light. Alternatively, the could be turned to LED lighting, or a combination of both. The mouth visor is mesh for visibility.

----------------------------------------

My mau5head design for deadmau5's 'Next Head' contest. The first place winner's head will be made and they will be flown down to LA to meet deadmau5 and see him perform.

If I won this contest, I'd probably cry. This is a big dream of mine to see deadmau5, whom (like Skrillex) I always seem to miss local show opportunities. Not to mention the honour it would be!!!

I'm actually in first place right now, but the trick now is to keep that spot :)

deadmau5 does house music, electro house. Much more chill than Skrillex

Voted! This design is definitely my favorite of the bunch. It looks like it'd fit perfectly in a rave, but it also pays homage to the Mexican holiday. Excellent job!

The day I flew back from the states Deadmau5 AND Skrillex were in Sydney, I was sooooo annoyed that I missed them =3=

But I love your design, Ive always loved day of the dead stuff, If I have a suggestion Id really think a subtle mau5 skull for when the thing glows in the dark would look awesome

weremagnus Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2011  Professional
I had a Prof. Meowington's skull worked into the back but then I felt it good too distracting/busy and made the focus of the masking confusing. It no longer was 'This is a deadmau5 head with these patterns' and instead was 'look for the hidden images'
