The Defender steampunk helm is getting ever so much closer to completion. Today I added the ten luminiferous aether collection devices.
After riveting the devices to the neckguard trim I stitched and riveted the trim to the neckguard itself.
I then antiqued it to match the rest of the helmet. No more bright colors!
Here is a detail photo of the rear of the helm, showing the crest and the aether devices. Next I will finish and mount the front plate.
