How did the idea occur?

"The idea occurred in the 8th grade, when my parents wanted me to wear a bicycle helmet. I found it totally geeky.

Therefore, I decorated my helmet with a cardboard snout and teeth and two eyes made of polystyrene balls from art class. Then I suddenly had a crocodile on my head.

My friends were crazy about the idea – and stood in line to get a helmet just like it."
