Deadmau5’s Mouse Helmet

Speaking of headpieces, Deadmau5’s eye-catching collection of mouse head helmets certainly helped the Toronto DJ and producer stand out from the dance music pack during his (and EDM’s) ascendance to mainstream cultural relevance (and now, decline) over the past half-decade or so. The heads are commissioned from the Jim Henson Creature Shop, come in a rainbow of colours and boast a number of different functions like LED displays and light-up eyes. The mouse head is a powerful tool: even the world’s happiest, most ruthlessly powerful megacorp is scared of it.
