Greek and Roman Attic helmet. Its the steryotypical Roman Senior Officer Helmet. French Knight visor helm is also cool.

Modern helmet, I like the MICH with 4 lens Nightvison set without the ACU.

Haha it's exactly the same for me. Anything that sticks out of your helmet and floats/flies through the air when you move is just beautiful imo.

I believe the first could be called a kettle hat. I think the Ming also used it.

Regarding the second helmet could you find an actual recreation? It looks like larp material.
