Hi, I just signed up to ask this question. I've looked at the wiki, and read through a number of threads here and elsewhere. I'm sure what I'm about to ask has been answered a million times already, but I lacked the search skills to turn up the answer.
I'm looking for an "off the shelf" helmet, something I can buy and wear with little effort. I realize most people here are looking to be as accurate as possible, but that is not me.
- I do not have the skills to buy a kit to make my own helmet or to improve an off the shelf helmet
- My standards aren't that high, but I want something that looks better than the Rubies helmet or the Hasbro talking helmet.
- I don't care which movie the helmet most resembles
- Needs to fit an adult head and can be worn for a few hours at a time
This will be worn maybe 2 or 3 times a year, and not as part of a full costume.
From what I've found, I think an old Don Post helmet might be my best bet? Is there something else out there that I should consider? I'm not familiar with all the different varieties and variations that might be out there. Any help would be greatly appreciated, including links to helmet comparisons or threads where similar questions have been answered.
Thanks for your time.
