All she said was that the shape of the helmet was wrong as well as the visor area. But I was pretty sure that people have used this helmet in the past to get approved, especially if you have a larger head (like me) or a smaller one and the other pre-made helmet won't fit you. Not sure what to do from here. I'm pretty sure a Rubies helmet won't fit me (though the GML said that the Rubies are also not approvable but the forum does say otherwise, with a visor modification of course).

Rubies costumes are hit and miss. The helmet part is fine for larger heads. Just remove the screws to avoid cracking. On that same note the reason why rubies guard robes in the past where not approved was due to craftmanship of the sewing on the fabric.

Dont forget too Rubies colour wont match the robes you have so going to need to sand and paint that sucker too! Plus the visor change.

You might want to ask your gml what helmets are approvalable, because most gmls approve the ones she doesn't like.

Yes I did do that but she just has pictures of one's she likes, she doesn't know the Vendors. Who is the DL for the Royal Guards? If they say it's okay or not that should quickly clear this up. I really hope that the 3d file gets approved since the standard helmet that most people sell won't fit everyone. So what is someone with an extra small or large head to do?

What does everyone think about this 3d Model (https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/7350231 ... allery-1-9)?

I does look different then what the OP had posted here.

The helmet from the OP is perfectly fine.

I would ask for another of your GML's to review it, and/or for LMO input.

-signed Icelandic outpost GML that has printed this specific helmet before.
