We already showed you the chrome Alabama football helmet made for a young Crimson Tide fan as a reward for good grades. Some of you loved it, and others hated it because it went against Alabama’s tradition of simple, unadorned uniforms.

Well if you hated that one, you’re gonna go nuts over these.

Brad Daley, an artist and designer based in Ridgeland, MS, created the custom chrome helmet, and it turns out that was only the tip of the iceberg. Daley has been making even more tradition-breaking helmets as a way to express his creativity and his love of Alabama football.

“A friend asked, ‘Brad, when are going to design your own Alabama helmet?’ and that put a thought in my head that stuck,” Daley said of his inspiration.

“I started do some research on blank mini helmets, vinyl patterns I could design, facemasks, etc., and started off with my first one a few months back. I really enjoy putting the time and thought into each one.”

Here are some of the designs Brad came up with, that you likely won’t see when the Tide take the field this season:

    These helmets are beautiful. I grew up watching Alabama football with my dad and would love to see the houndstooth on the helmets for a game or two to show respect to Coach Paul “Bear Bryant”. I just love the helmet with the houdstooth on the back but with the 3 stripes. Its so close to our traditional helmets but also slighty pays tribute to what has been due. The guy did a wonderful job on all of them and is very talented in his mind. I never seen on ugly but that’s what makes the world so great!! Rtr
