What color is your helmet?

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 

  

 

Mine is silver with a black chin strap.

 

I put a few stickers on it, not too many just enuf so people know where i'm from and that i get teh vibe. I would give it a custom paint job but i'm artisticallically challenged and afraid people would laff at my paint job, so i have just a silver helmet with some stickers.

Actually I was contemplating painting or having someone custom paint my helmet.

Paging Bumpfreaq

 

Something like this would be cool on a ski helmet

 Jimmy, you too?

 

 

Even thought we're trying to put out the Helmet debate troll threads, this one has some potential for creativity.

 

Please please please don't let it become a PITA!

Yeah Jimmy, watch your step. 

 

Mine's black. I covered up the word Leedom with a little sticker that says SMITH.  Smith is the best name, isn't it? Johnson is so common and a bit crude quite frankly. I had a little clown face sticker above the Smith sticker, but it wasn't waterproof and it wore off. On the back are PSIA, AASI, NSP logos and the American flag! I have leather earflaps (instead of the more common plastic shell extending down over the ears) for that "Devil may care" crazy risk taker image I'm trying to project.

Go ahead and paint it jimmy.  Making people laff is part of the fun =)

Careful to a fault. I wasn't sure which helmet thread to ask about this in so i figured why not start another one. Smith is good, I have a friend who looks a lot like you named Smith, good skier too, go figure. I must admit before someone calls me out that sometimes i wear a hat on warm spring days. I bought it at Brighton four years ago because i forgot my Silver Helmet. It's dark green with earflaps and a tassel on top. I can't seem to get stickers to stick but it does have a brighton logo on it so that's good, ya? I like the way the tassel bounces too and fro when i ski.

You have to love the helmets that are constructed out the wearer's hair and a can of hair spay.

my is a flat, burnt red color so it's pretty easy to pick me out. 

 

I recently added a racewax.com sticker because I was highly impressed with the waxing and tuning supplies I just purchased from there.

Or when I'm planning on doing something stupid.

Mine is a boring old standard silver/gray.  

I forget who, but someone who posts here had a bright yellow helmet that matched his coat.  I thought that was a great look.

 

Bumpfreaq's helmet is nice, too.  People notice, but I think most of them like it.

 

Some of these with pictures are pretty amazing.

 

Anybody remember when Giro had one with the Jack of Spades on it?  I liked the look of it, but was afraid it had some secret significance I didn't know about.

Anyone up for a custom airbrushed Helmet?  Flames, a Death Head?.

I dunno about painting it, a Silver Helmet is a good choice for a  fashion base. If you go painting it, depending on the paint compound, it could end up looking like a cake batter melt down. Brownies gone wrong or sumthin.
 

Now about those stickers not stikin to your ear flappin tassle bouncer, maybe try bumper sticker type/quality stickers.  Seems they stick for decades thru the car washes. Never come off, no matter who's in office a generation later.  Only problem is they're a traffic hazard. Can't keep count how many people I've heard say the cause of the wreck was the car in front with the distracting bumper stickers.  They were actually trying to read them and drive at the same time.  So if you ski at a high traffic

ski area ...............just warnin ya.

Black Boeri.

Too quick.  Black Bucket.  (Black is the fastest.  Duh.)

 

3. Stickers.  Skichair.com logo (Team Sponsor) and Yoda and Obi Wan

 

Yoda tells me to "Do or do not.  There is no try."

Obi Wan tells me.  "Use the Force,"  "Let go" and "Trust your feelings..."

You guys, don't let Jimmy lie to you. I skied 30+ days with him this year and didn't see him in anything but this helmet:

 

 

 

and often times he had 4 or 5 people following him wearing these:

I would post a picture of a "purple-helmeted" warrior but I might get banned.
