Well perhaps these covers will make a helmet more palatable:
This could be a cousin of Gaper Boy. All we know is he's "Josh"
Names Witheld because of Finndog
My faith in humanity is restored. Paris can get fur for any helmet she chooses!
Maybe these will have an impact on helmet wearing.
Pink Faux Fur:
Sometimes hats are unsafe and disturbing. Sheesh!
Now this helmet might get a few more wearers. Pretty cool! Thank goodness, no more disturbia from that^^.

I think it's for motorcycle, but the site is too ponderous to deal with. If you have to ask ya know,...so we're leaving...
Talk about Disturbia.
This guy really should have a Momo helmet on. He could get hurt and that cape won't save him.
(Ok, I thought that ski mask lady was weird. See, this is what helmet threads bring out. Now, if only Bob's Kramelet binding had been invented then history might be different. Other than that, I don't know what to say! Only that if Nosferatu had skied, he probably would have worn this.)
Now, this Design for IDI makes me forget all about the flying brother Nosferatu

It does look suspiciously like the Momo. Moving on....
The absolute opposite. Only a concept, but for those who love the padded hat, perhaps this could work. At least it would offer protection from helmet thread - uh...people.
This one is too soft. For the bar only, it has potential esp. in Portillo, and Angel Fire.
We will probably continue to butt heads in the helmet threads! They're just no fun.
Listen to "Angel Glam" blogging:
when I speak about sports, I particularly mean fashion in sports
... If you get the chance to go skiing
this winter, have a look at some ideas how to be fabulous on the top ! Otherwise wait for the snow and enjoy it in the city. I am glad that now fashion mixes the look and the safety !
Really, I could not have said that better myself. Thank goodness she did the work.
These in Python and Leather by Indigo. Some of Angel Glam's faves
Those to go with these Python look Skis! Freakin' hot. Worth getting a matching helmet for.
(No Dudes in Onesies here! These are total Glam.)
I know, so Euro. When they wear one though, they want to wear one.
This doesn't work so well on the street or the slopes. Too bad.
We'd much prefer her in the CatWoman look.
Halle Berry wears a helmet:
For those of you who don't wear one, don't worry, you can still film yourself just like the helmeted clan.
Well, I should get out of here. I've had no fun at all. (As it should be)
I shall keep searching for that noggin tobogan that will turn the tide....
oh! wait!....I might have found it.
They call this the Airbag helmet. It really should have a remote.
Fashion and Safety!
(Read the text, it's worth it)
Even if it means a life saved, a number of people often forgo the use of a bicycle helmet for the sake of looking cool. If you’re one of many who just can’t stand to spoil a perfectly wind blown ‘do, then the Hövding bicycle “collar” just may be the bike safety accessory you’ve been looking for. Disguised as a stylish yet subtle piece fit for any outfit, this collar is able to deploy a full-on head-protecting airbag in case of impact. Curious about the effectiveness? Check out a video of a biker taking a spill wearing the Hövding after the jump!
Ok, it's for bicyclists. Can't we all get along?
Still, I couldn't make this stuff up. I know some think I do. Let's blame it on 'roid rage.
But look, here's a video of this airbag helmet in action. Really a remote would be fab, especially in the Jackson Tram. How rad.
Now, it starts out stealthy. Those who refuse to be caught dead in a noggin tobogan under the tree, fear not. No one will know you have it on.
Check out the dude. He's wearing one under the scarf. (Ok, you've got to wear a freakin' scarf. Could you up the style for some life savin'?)
Now comes the test. The deployment! I confess I don't know where the crash sensor is.
(Ok, ok....so it's a car and a bike. They've yet to have the guts to send a skiing dummy into a tree at 20mph. Use the imagination)
This just in. I know you're skeptical, but listen here:
The Hövding can tell the difference between falling from a bike and bending over to tie a shoelace.
Will wonders ever cease??
And you thought helmets or their threads were just silly.
