The British may be known for their awesome accents (well I think so), fish and chips, tea and biscuits, and soccer (er football). But another aspect of their culture that I have been fascinated by is their love of hats. Yes, hats. Now of our armor pieces, I think the craziest designs Blizz has come up with has been our helms. I guess if you think about it, there may be more latitude to go all out with helms compared to other pieces.
Well, if Blizz wants any inspiration in designing future tier helms, I think they should look at some of these amazing hats from the high end fashion world. They're less hats, and more headpieces perhaps. Some exquisite examples from Philip Treacy, an incredible British milliner.
This one below screams out priest to me for some reason:
Could this be for a warlock?
Or this one below for a pally or shammy?
Mage helm below?
I especially love the orchid and butterfly headpieces as options for druid helms. Maybe the male druids wouldn't be so crazy about them, but I love them!
