Fade Dana's crazy cool helmets, as photographed by Del May

Posted by Bettina Tizzy

William Gibson and Bruce Sterling fans like to embrace the allure of cyberpunk glam, and admirers of Queen Amidala’s post-Mongolian wigs and headdresses take that up a notch or two higher, but in Second Life® we have the bejeweled and horned helmets designed by Fade Dana to go gaga over.

While helmets with horns were worn as far back as the Iron Age - and not by the Vikings as often presumed - photographer Del May has done a brilliant job of showcasing Fade's virtual imaginings, which can be acquired at her Hat Mechanic shops by teleporting here or here.
