Quinn Gregory of Chicago had created a buzz by blinging out animal and human skulls. They looked bizarre with all the Swarovski crystals set on them but they attracted attention immediately. You either hated them or liked them but you just couldn’t ignore them. Quinn has taken the concept forward and has created similar designs with Swarovski crystals on authentic Riddell Proline Football Helmets that are worn by NFL players. The effect is more or less the same. After all, the helmets are also called the brain buckets.
Quinn has taken the helmets and hand applied over 12,500 Swarovski crystals to them and blinged them completely. The crystals are painstakingly set and it is a rather slow process. One helmet could take as much as three weeks to complete. The helmets look stunning after Quinn is finished with them. They make very interesting conversation piece. It does not make the helmet any safer but it will definitely be appreciated by the club players and their fanatic fans. It will even serve the purpose as a showpiece in your home or office.
Jerry Jones, the owner of Dallas Cowboy had first commissioned Quinn Gregory to create this blinged helmet club. It will not be worn by any player during the games but it will be auctioned off at the Team’s annual charity event. The designer who has a thing for Swarovski crystals is open to the idea for creating similar helmets for the other NFL teams. Even the NCAA college helmets could be given the Swarovski treatment by Quinn. His crystal makeover costs $1,800 for a helmet. You can visit his site to enquire and find out more about these helmets.
