Are too!

The bicycle helmet to end all bicycle helmets:

Star Wars bike helmet

Among other things, this is a dramatic demonstration that the “pastry artist” at your local bakery might have higher ambitions than your kid’s birthday cake. Then again, your local bakery may not be like this.

    That’s wonderful. I would think if such things were more widely available, more people would willingly wear bike helmets for cycling.

    I’m gonna need more time to just look at that.

    And the helmet too.

    I love that you blogged about this, thank you so much!!! I should mention that it’s a *scooter* helmet :). I have a bike, but I rarely ride it ’cause the scooter is so much fun (especially fun now that I’ve made the helmet).

    I think I’m really just like any other nerd out there; holed up at home waiting patiently for the zombie apocalypse, day dreaming about how bad ass it’s going to look when I kill like 27 zombies in less than a minute. You know, pretty typical stuff.

    Whew! Be still my beating heart!

    Prepping, painting and lacquering a mundane utilitarian object: 10 hrs
    Cost of supplies, free time (expressed in unearned compensation): $40
    Soliciting friends’ time, supplies and expenses for gadgets for same object: 10hrs or $60, whichever is less

    Getting numerous men’ hearts beating hard: priceless

    You mean the utilitarian object formerly known as mundane?
