Many thanks fellows! And thanks to Sir James for suggesting the yellow trim.

Wow!!! So how's it feel on?  Does it slow head movement much?

And here we go. I ended up going with the yellow trim to add just a little bit of color to it.
It matches the colors of my current secular knight kit's charge, too.  ;D

Sweeetttt!!!!

Many thanks fellows! And thanks to Sir James for suggesting the yellow trim.

You're welcome. Also, now that this helmet is done ... see my suggestion regarding multiple helmets and crests. ;)

Hate to break it to you, but I've never been overly susceptible to peer pressure. Your mind tricks won't work on me. ;) It was a fun little project, though. I'll certainly make more in the future.

Not that I can tell. It seems pretty stable and not overly heavy; you just have to be a little more aware of your immediate surroundings and watch where you swing those things.
 I imagine you'd get some wind resistance if you were on horseback at full gallop, but I have neither a horse nor the skill to ride one, so I don't really have to worry about that. I could always stick my head out a car window and see what happens, I suppose. ;)

I expect to see complete photographic data for this experiment. :)

Nah, the whole point of the helmet is to prevent you losing your head ;)
