    Someone on here is doing a cardboard bucket. If you get the right proportions you could make a larger bucket.

    What are the measuremnts of your head, firtly. Start eating steamed veggies secondly... And finally, if your melon is too large for some of the larger helmets, you'll have to start your hand at Pepakura.

    There's Arkady's bargain flightsuits thread in the costume forum. I believe RKD has some larger armor, but personally, I would use the WOF templates and see what size works for you, then compare those sizes to his. I highly recommend Terminal Fettler's helmet. I had one before, and I thought it was just a tad big on me. As far as the shoes go. I have no idea if anyone makes shoes that big. Maybe contact evolution props? to see if they could accommodate you. Though their overall impression left on people is lack luster, people seem to think their shoes are ok. I normally wouldn't recommend them, but they're the only ones I know making boots right now. Aside from CA boots, who only go up to size 13.

    Don't go Evolution Props. They're Bandits. You're up s*1t's creek in this hobby if you're built like a Mack truck... The helmet will be your biggest problem if you have a basket ball sized Cranium.

    Yeah, don't be positive or anything. Just keep demoralizing him until he finds a new hobby.

    Hello ..you should contact CA boots .. since they do custom boots of all sorts they may be able to accommodate you.. I know the Budget Asok (love mine) is a bit bigger, maybe you can measure your head and contact some makers and see what they think.. Hope that helps some.. Good luck

    It is possible though. Most people it takes time and a lot of money to put these joints together. Don't let no one discourage you.

    Got a fabric tape? Need the circumference measurement to know if a ready made helmet will fit you. Best bet would be a Fettpride budget or premium lid, as they run the largest.

    Another option if you are needing a large helmet there are some over on the Mando Mercs site that sell larger helmets in the Boba Fett style. There is one that a guy is selling in called the Behemouth & says it will fit a 23" head size.

    http://mercs.firespray.net/forum/index.php

    Or your other option is to make a scratch build helmet if you are needing a large helmet.

    I will measure when I get home. I do know that generally I wear a 7 5/8 ball cap and cowboy hat size. I have some ideas I want to try someday when I am able. I very much like the mandalorian armor but I have some ideas to "up armor" the costume.

    This is on the downlow but I will be making my helmet. I am making this out of cardboard for the skeleton and I will be wrapping this up and resin then bondoing it. I will keep everyone posted. Just have imagination and do it. I will not be told no cause I am bigger than you...lol
