Helmets Edit

Valley of the Wind

  • Nausicaä and Mito wear flight helmets with Ohmu shell goggles built in (Mito has a ceramic patch with a stylized eye over the right eye since he normally wears an eyepatch over his right eye) [1].

Periphery

  • (sample helmet)

Torumekia

  • The Imperial Guard helmet is full helm that appears to be some variation of an armet [2].
  • Kushana's helmet was a variation on the Imperial Guard Helmet. While still an armet, it had a different, more ornate face-mask pattern with a visor over the eyes [3].
  • Torumekian Pilots wear helmets with dark visors and cone-shaped face masks [4].
  • Regular Army helmets have a built-in stripe visor, cover the ears and flares out at the back [5].
  • A different Torumekian Helmet [6] looks like a skull with a single strip eye plate.

Dorok

Hats Edit

Valley of the Wind

  • Many people wear hats in the Valley of the Wind.
  • Most hats have a line of decoration above the brow.
  • Nausicaä's formal hat looks like a cut-down wimple, exposing her ears and neck. Above her brow is a line of stones with a symbol of the Valley with an inset stone, which probably identifies her as a princess of the house [9].
  • King Jhil's hat looks more like a helmet. It is a cap with a line of braiding above the brow and an inset stone in the center, and ear protectors [10].
  • The Wise Women wear hooded cloaks or robes with a line of stones above the brow and a line of around the shoulders [11].
  • The maidens, Nekari and Tocto, wear a full wimple, with differing decorations above the brow [12].
  • A majority of the men and boys wear either a balaklava that extends down to the shoulders or a balaklava with a separate cap, and sometimes the cap has earflaps. The line of decoration above the brow varies [13].
  • A majority of women and girls wear either a wimple or a balaklava to the shoulders. The line of decoration above the brow varies [14].

Periphery

  • Yupa's hat is a broad-brimmed floppy hat with a wide band, flat top and fringed tassel. He wears it with a balaklava/cloak combination with his hat [15].
  • The refugees from Pejitei had similar styles as the men and women of the Valley of the Wind, except one woman had a slight veil in front of her face [16].

Headgear and Facemasks Edit

Valley of the Wind

  • (sample headgear)

Periphery

  • Rastel wore a cap with a wide band of stones around it, leaving her ears exposed [17] that was identified as a crown [18].

Torumekia

  • Kushana's crown extends ear to ear over the brow, with a two-headed snake at the top [19].
  • A headstone of authority is a thin-banded frame with a stone at the brow. It is worn by staff officers. Kurotowa wears one [20].
  • Priests of Torumekia wear black hoods and plain white face-coverings with eyeholes [21].

Dorok

  • The Holy One's facemask [22] covers the nose and mouth and has three horizontal lines over the mouth with a triangle on the forehead between the eye holes.
  • The Holy One's Breathing Mask [23] is a variation of a Shohki Mask that covers the nose and mouth with two tubes out which go to large bags, presumably air bags, carried by acolytes. There is an embroidered inverted triangle, with a small circle and a chevron inside it, over the mouth. It was worn by the Blind priest that captured Nausicaä and Asbel [24].
  • Other facemasks [25], presumably lesser priests, are similar to the Holy One's facemask but have two vertical or two horizontal lines over the mouth.
  • Representatives from the Council of Monks wear cowels. The senior priest had a facemask with five vertical bars over his mouth and a single vertical bar on his forehead between the eye holes [26]. Lesser priests have three horizontal bars over their mouths with a single " tooth" sticking up from the lowest horizontal bar and a triangle on the forehead between the eye holes.
  • The Holy Emperor's Younger Brother, Miralupa, wears a face mask [27] with pairs of eyes above and below the eye holes, all linked by a trident facing down and stylized squiggles on each side of the trident fork.
