|really good look. So quickly found an idea with the new items to create a beautiful character and associated with a beautiful story.|
|Reminds me of female adventurers / pilots in old films :) you should use that nostalgic box thing while playing this character haha|
|You're almost right. Here's some history for you... |
I guess ANet designed the Racing Helmet & Racing Scarf according to a historic archetype from the 50's and 60's. Jim Redman (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Redman), Mike Hailwood, Giacomo Agostini, or Phil Read, to name just four multiple world champions, put their pears into the English hat. As eye protection they preferred glasses (from Fospaic, Monza or Climax) and as a sign of camaraderie they wore the "yellow scarf".
The half helmet, also referred to as a "Shorty" in the USA and "Pudding Basin" or TT helmet in the UK. Even today, half-shell helmets are popular especially with rockers and riders of classic motorcycles (especially Harley Davidson) to demonstrate their identification with the spirit of the time. Notable UK manufacturers included Everoak and, currently, Davida.
