Pith Helmet

Description: 

A classic jungle explorer pith helmet. Fitted on the neutral base human. The cap area is actually separate from the brim, with the cords hiding the empty space. This let me add more loops to the cap to make the seams, while not having to add unneeded loops to the brim just to match topology. It fits over short hairstyles without issue, but most long hair will clip through. You can hot-fix this in Blender with shape keys and/or a Mask modifier. Known Issues - Scales a little unevenly. (You can see some minor squash and stretch when moving the Age slider.) I tried several 3-vertex combos on the Hair helper for the rigid fit method, and this is the best result of the bunch.
