You might want to try making a torse.

Second post down is a good set of instructions.
I made one based on these for my sallet and it looked quite good.

Edit: Also, you can sew a cape or some such thing and have it drape down the helmet (put the seams under the torse)

If you make something like that, Don't get one of those ugly $70 crusader helms with the straight sides and flat top.

Get one with a top that's sloped in some way. It looks better and will allow the torse to stay on.

Something like this would be good, as it will hold the torse and will allow you to lift the visor for a breather when it gets too stuffy.

Generally I guess you would look for a Great helm.
Here's two good examples with a quick Google:

(good colours for you too)

As for clothes, if you want historical stuff, look up early 14th century clothes, if you want Bretonnian stuff, I have no idea. (I assume its based on historical stuff).

Edit: Also, you could look up Sugarloaf helms. They're like Great helms but have a more sloped profile.
