Hunting a Great Helm

Greetings everyone

Am looking to get an early to mid 13th century great helm - preferably one that can be made to fit me

It has been decades since I bought a new helm - any suggestions as to who would be worth contacting (and if they will be at TORM in November?)

Many thanks

Re: Knight & Lady 'bling' - guidance/sources? (13thc.)

Fully agree with Tanya's post Sartor are excellent, but be warned - not exactly cheap! Be wary when it comes to jewellry - a little is good, but from what I've seen, they did not go overboard for that in the 12th / 13th century.

Re: Knight & Lady 'bling' - guidance/sources? (13thc.)

Start with the soft kit first - good quality linens and silks (as much decoration as you can)

A good pair of spurs for a knight is a must

Decorated belts, good cloaks and cloak brooches / pins

Keep along those lines, and you'll be fine

We'd have to come up with a design, but may will want quotes (the design will be very simple)
