Okay. I have been trying make a couple scenes featuring some sort of Catholic-esque Bishop. However, I have found no brilliant ways that look even close to a Bishop's hat. I hope you geniuses at BF can help with said problem. I am referring to to the bishop's Mitre (Ceremonial headdress):

While far from perfect, my usual solution is this or this upside-down/backwards on a matching standard helmet.
You can see how it looks here...

One was actually molded with one of the old molds, but it was never made for production.

Just cut off the neck-guard things off of one of these.

That would result in a Norman spangenhelm. A miter is not so conically symmetrical.

The nose thing too. And yes, symmetrical, but an easy fix until someone starts making one.

Here's a custom minifig by Armohte..... Wait- OUR Armothe?
