Top 5 D.I.Y. deadmau5 Head Tutorials

You've seen them before and now you want your very own, maybe to show off at deadmau5's NYE show in New York. You can buy the iconic heads online via sites like eBay, but if you want one in time to ring in the New Year with the mau5 at Nassau Coliseum, we suggest you D.I.Y., but you'd better start now. Disclaimer: making your own mau5 head is time consuming. Below are a few of the best tutorials that will break down the process for you.  

1) There are essentially two ways to go about putting together your mau5 head. First is the "paper mâché" method and the second is the "globe" method. The globe method is more likely to turn out looking better, but you'll have to get creative and scour the shelves at your local Michael's for a globe substitute if you have trouble finding one. Both strategies are depicted in the tutorial videos below.          

In addition, here are two great step-by-step outlines:
