the above link comparing various helmets was golden. I guess i'm gonna take my time buying one and not rush into it like I wanted to yesterday. I mean, i'll shop around NYC this weekend, look at a few dozen, try them on and then buy a good one.
If anyone is interested, I found an arts student at NYU who agreed to airbrush my helmet as a "class project" for free. The only thing is that I would have to give it to him for displaying it around certain dates and allow him include photos of it in his personal art catalog. I don't think it's a bad deal. I'll start to work on a design with him in November.

Also if they are going to paint the helment make sure they are using automotive paint not tshirt airbrush paint. Surface prep is key it should be roughed up with 400-600 grit depending on the paint being used. Also some paint chemicals can destroy the foam crush structure inside so dont over do it on the chemicals.

And good luck on finding a helmet.
