In honor of the upcoming Riders4Helmets International Helmet Awareness Day, check out this one-of-a-kind lid showcase.
Our source? The Internet’s one-stop-shopping destination for all things random: Etsy, of course.
Let’s kick off the freak show with this English Riding Helmet Topiary that would look smashing in any home or office…
Here’s a 50’s Unisex Jared Hoffert Equestrian Helmet paired with some rather unorthodox riding attire…
More vintage hunt caps modeled by creepy manikins…
…or this random hipster guy…
…or a sock monkey. Look at the little riding crop!
Haven’t you always wanted a 1950s Retro Table Lighter in the Shape of a Motorcycle Crash Helmet Horse Riders Helmet?
These helmet covers/fleeces from HeatherWearHorse are actually really cute.
Omg, it’s a dragon! Love. It.
This one is more high-concept.
And then we start getting into the weirdy stuff. Like this Moschell Riding Head Piece, a steal at just $725. The description reads: “A coveted treasure. This thick, red, felt, vintage riding cap was taken to the heights of head couture as I adorned it with huge German glass doll eyes, paint, a rare mix of feathers, a silky ponytail extension attached with scraps from a favourite old shirt covered with vintage pins and then … REAL horse teeth! A one of a kind creation.”
Five words: What. Would. George. Morris. Say?
The end. Microphone drop. Walking away. Can’t beat that, not gonna try.
