Artist Paints Children's Medical Helmets To Look Cooler

This is a series of children's medical helmets painted by artist Paula Strawn to look cooler than the plain white they come in. They almost make me wish I had to wear a medical helmet. I don't though. "Then what's that on your head?" Oh this? This is a CRASH helmet. "And those?" Those are football pads. My mom makes me wear them whenever I go outside -- I got run over by the school bus twice in middle school. "Wow." And once in high school. "Ahahhahahhahahha." Three times since I graduated college. "My God you're a special human being." I always think they're ice cream trucks!

Keep going for a bunch more, but you can see ALL (there's a ton) of the designs in Paula's online portfolio.

Thanks to chichi, who agrees the coolest helmets are the ones that look like fish bowls that space rangers wear.
