I know what you’re saying: “Viking helmets weren’t really like that!” Of course they weren’t. Having those big horns sticking out of the sides would make it really easy for an opponent to pull your helmet off with his weapon, and there you are, hanging out in the middle of a battlefield with your hair all messed up and your braincase highly susceptible to puncturing blows.

If the Vikings wore horned helmets, it was probably just for ceremonial purposes. However, the faux Viking helmets are a lot cooler looking than plain old skull caps (which don’t even have enough room for a drill compartment), so that’s what I used!

Happy Greenland Week!
