I only need a spare one.  Otherwise I would want to keep the clown stock.  Yeah, I could swap out hair, but I would only want to do that if I had more than one.  I don't. 

Still haven't carved and painted other hair yet - I'll try that today.

Hmm, better yet, why carve?  I can paint the top of the head flesh colour and with the "hat ridge" that gives me the option of putting on a helmet - like Friar Tuck is often portrayed!

That looks nice.

But would a monk wear it?  Or just the cowl under the scapular?

Well ... would a monk wear a helmet like the one in the picture you posted?

Did a bit of research and a monk could wear a zucchetto.  Like shown below.

Well, considering all the Crusader Orders (Military Orders) were monastic orders ...

And your avatar being that of a monk of the Teutonic Order.   ;)

Here is a link to the 'Journal of Monastic Military Orders' journal which can be previewed online:

It's chock full of pictures of ships, castles, heraldry and armour.

Mmmm. Yeah - I know about monastic orders, but Friar Tuck's something else altogether, eh  :P

Unfortunately there is nothing resembling a zucchetto in the world of PM, to the best of my knowledge at least. Some weeks ago there was a klicky on sale on ebay that had the hair you need, but the seller didn't ship outside Germany. I should know, cause I too have a monk who's waiting for his proper hair.
