Darthhair's helmet is one of the best available for the price and is about the correct size. (as far as I can tell)
If you really want a smaller helmet, Rando Mextra AKA Mark Bradley sells kits as well as assembled versions.
His look fairly decent in appearance, but are lower quality. (They are pulled using HIPS styrene instead of ABS.
The pull is also much thinner and not as durable.)
The kits costs significantly less than Darthhair's kit, and they don't come with all the padding and such that DH includes with his.

I have to warn you that most people find the Bradley helmets small. (I've owned two of them) I am at the upper end of a medium size head, and I had to pull out on the sides of the helmet just to get my head into it. Anyone that has a large size head won't be able to easily wear it.

There are a few other sellers out there that offer helmets, but I have no idea what the difference in size is in comparison to the DH helmet.
Some of those helmets are known to have quality issues as well.

There was one other seller that offered a decent quality helmet kit.
I believe that seller was Darren Wright and goes by the name DW Design Studios.
Again, I do not know what the size difference would be.

I just joined the forum and was looking at Darth hair helmets. I asked him a question but haven't heard back yet. My concern is that I have a huge head and worry it may not fit. Any advice or info on this?

I have a larger size head and Darth Hair's helmet is pretty roomy for me.
