Show off your unconventional helmet

Someone sent me this for a smile ..




So, I got to thinking; wonder what the BF folks use? Got anything unconventional? Please share.

Note: posted in commuting because commuters tend get a bit creative with stuff like this for various reasons...

In rain or during the cooler weather, my helmet is usually covered with a yellow rain cover. Sometimes I ride with no helmet.

I have one of the nutcase watermelon helmets, I love it, although it is hot in the summer so I will probably switch back to my boring Bell soon.
