About Deadmau5 Heads
You may not recognize Joel Zimmerman if he passed you in the street, but in his deadmau5 head, he is unmistakable. Zimmerman is a dance music phenomenon from Canada who uses technology during his live performances. Better known as his alter-ego, deadmau5, pronounced "dead mouse," he created an album logo called the mau5head, with huge round ears, bulbous eyes, and a wide grin. With a little prompting from friends, he started wearing this logo in the form of a headdress that fits completely over the head and face. Fans love to sport replica deadmau5 heads at Zimmerman's concerts, and you can also find numerous versions on eBay that are great for cosplay or Halloween. Red is popular because Zimmerman wore this color at the world-famous Coachella music festival in 2008, but there are lots of other colors available. These heads come in a range of materials, including velvet, felt, and paper-mache. For the ultimate mau5head, look for a version with a cooling system, fancy lighting, and speakers, and take to the dance floor and show off those cool mouse moves.
