The start price for this listing is for a helmet done in black. Colors and options are available.They are all pictured in red and black because, well, that's what everyone has ordered so far ; I have never actually made an all black one to list... Very, very rarely do I actually need the full 30 days, that time frame simply covers me during heavy traffic times and certain times of the year when orders tend to pile up. I generally require closer to two weeks with some builds being faster, some a bit longer. Due to variations available, it is impossible for me to have on stock and list every possibility. Prices may vary for custom requests, please contact me with any and all questions.
The number available listed above does not represent the actual number on hand. Important: From time to time I can get extremely busy and backed up. This helmet comes with a chin strap and is perfect for riding or the faire. Please be aware, if you decide to wear one of these helmets while riding a motorcycle, they are in NO WAY DOT APPROVED.
Removing the cheeks should satisfy most laws in states where helmets are optional regarding wearing helmets that are not DOT approved. Please know the laws of your state!I can not and will not be held responsible for any accidents or tickets received while wearing one of these helmets. This helmet can be made with many different color combinations, different nosepiece conchos, large conchos on the temples, spikes etc.
Just get with me so we can work out a price due to the fact that prices and availability will vary greatly. Some Options and Price Examples Are.I now use tail hair harvested from living animals for my plumes. Are available from time to time at an additional charge depending on the color and cost. Some items for these helmets can be difficult to come by from time to time, horse tails and certain horns to give examples. Please keep in mind, these are natural items and are up to the animals involved to grow and supply. Please note: I do not work with white or yellow.
They are both a nightmare to work with and I still haven't figured out any tricks to keep me from screwing em up. The concho holding the nose piece on the helm will be of your choice. This helm is made from 9 ounce dyed leather. I have doubled the temple and short cheek piece giving a total of 18 ounces of protection. The nose piece is made from water hardened and formed 14 ounce leather.
I have hand cut, dyed, and sealed this helmet for weather resistance, as well as done some basic line work to give accent details. This is a design I came up with, patterned and made myself.
It is not some machine punched piece, produced in bulk and put together by a gaggle of half starved orphan kids. I have no idea how many more of these I may make, or, if I will even make any more, so dont get caught watching! Wearing the chain coif the helm fits comfortably, without, it would allow for a light padding. So, basically, it should fit up to a 24 inch head allowing for padding, etc.
Keep in mind, large noses, dreadlocks, giant pumpkin shaped heads and afros may affect the wearability of this item. I have riveted a leather "loop" on the back, top of the helmet to allow it to be carried on your belt via most types of tankard straps. That way you don't have to wear or carry it around all day, you can simply hook it to your belt. It also provides a place to attach streamers, tails, etc.
Has the entire world lost it's mind? All of my items are produced as costume items and pieces only.
