mind you it has a passing resemblance to certain guy called donald last seen at Disney ...
how does it feel to run around in and how much vision do you get from the helm set-up
Yes, I know
The style of the italo-norman helmet with mask could be know, for joke, as "Donald Duck Helmet"
Is not really easy to wear this historical costume. The size and weight are high. In fact with all the clothes, arms, armor and shield... the weight is about 35-40kg. However the vision is good.

those shoes look fantastic who made them? Do you do metal edged combat in Italy?
and one more question are you thinking about putting leather or a metal rim around your sheild?
(former metal edged re-enactor)
The clothes and shoes are the work of Luciano, from "Medieval Design" in Italy ( http://www.medievaldesign.com/english.asp
The helmet, spurs and riveted chainmail come from "Battle Merchant" in Germany ( http://www.battlemerchant.com/
The sword is the work of "Fabri Armorum" in Czech Republic ( http://fabri-armorum.com/english/
There are a lot of Reenacting groups in Italy. However only a small number are really good and serious.
Actually I do not think I will include some leather or metal rim around the shield. But I could do it later.
