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. Customizing can be done as well. This helmet can be made with many different color combinations, different nosepiece conchos, 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. Open or closed face nose piece - No Price Difference. Dragon Wing, Hawk Wing or Dragon "Ear" Design - Designs included in price. All cheek designs are done 100% by hand.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.
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, conchos available are shown below. This helm is made from 9 ounce dyed leather.I have doubled the temple and cheek piece giving a total of 18 ounces of protection. 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 contoured the cheek and nose pieces to fit my face, they can easily be worked and molded to fit your face, if needed. I have riveted a leather "loop" on the back, top of the helmet to allow it to be carried on your sword belt via most types of tankard straps.
That way you don't have to wear or carry it around all day at the faire, you can simply hook it to your belt. It also provides a place to attach streamers, tails, etc.
