Homemade medieval helmets

Sword with backgroundAfter a little manipulation with the GIMP, I think I came up with an Aimee author photo that looks like me...but with flare. A huge thank you to Willie Ellis for lending us his homemade helmet to turn a so-so costume into something special.

If you're in the area, you might check out Willie's facebook page to see the furniture he and his brothers create. They don't jut work with wood, they're blacksmiths too. So if you're looking for a medieval helmet...well now you know who can hook you up!
