    Sep 27, 2006, 11:11 AM - FAT Fetts #1

    Okay guys my Fett costume is coming together but im a little nervous.
    Im 200 lbs and 6 feet tall. I have a bit of a beer gut.
    Hopefully I dont look all shabby in my costume.
    I noticed a lot of you are smaller and skinny.
    If your an overweight Fett please post your pics so I can check them out.
    Thanks.

    6'1" 250 on a good day. This was before I fixed my vest. It fits much better now.

    The girth belt and ammo belt help quite a bit with the protruding gut syndrome. You could also get a cinch from your local drug store for about 20 bucks. That may help too.

    You guys all seem pretty average... but then you have freaks like me who are 5'9" and 120lbs.

    I might also fall into the 'hefty' category, but I refuse to wear my costume until I lose a few pounds. It's important that everything fits properly, and doesn't stretch over your body.

    Not a proud pic, but this is one of the last times I wore the costume:


    Also, and this is a pet peeve of mine concerning Fett costumers, is that there should be a neck. The helmet should not sit directly on the collar armor. This can be achieved, even for those of us without necks, by adjusting the helmet liner, and making sure the collar armor is snug on the vest.

    BN...I agree with the neck comment. Mine appears that way because that was the first time I had everything on. By my first outing, I had everything sitting the way it should, and I had a neck.

    I'll have a custom done for November, so I won't be innacurate or anything, but I'd really like to drop a few pounds so when I have a Fett wearable I won't be Boba Fatt. Oh, and I'm about 5'8" and 225 lb. I'll need to get out into the battlefield a bit more often and stop hanging around the base with the free donuts.

    I'm about BatNinja's size proportionally.
    I am actually working on some armor designs that are slightly oversized to compensate. Will post pics once I have them painted. Essentially about 2 inches greater area over each armor piece.. PS Buckeye how exactly did you "fix" your vest?
  13. Sep 27, 2006, 5:00 PM - Re: FAT Fetts #13

    Im built like that too. I'm 6ft 2** pounds. I carry all my weight in my gut ( why have a six pack when you can have a keg ) and my big noogin. I do not look my wieght cause I carry it well. Anyway I am debateing on waiting to makeing my suit or just go ahead and make my suit ( give me a little more insentive in my weight lose splurge I am on ATM ). I might go ahead and just make mine oversized anyway, it would be hard to build and not wear.

    I had to sew an additional strip of velcro diagonally across the bottom of the vest to get it to close a little tighter around my gut. It looks a lot better when it closes correctly.

    Maybe we could put together a list of us 'stocky' Fetts, and post weekly progress on a weight-loss plan! My goal is to get down to 200 before Celebration 4.

    Well I'll start out the stocky Fetts. I'm 5'6" and 170lbs. My plan is to be 155 by C4. I'm planning to lose fat and gain some muscle. Yes, I have a beer gut.

    well, i did the online version, which is a LOT cheaper than the meetings, and doesn't involve being the only guy in a room full of women

    but the parts that really worked well for me weren't really even WW specific. logging everything i ate, and all the exercise i got, weekly weigh-in, and posting weekly updates in livejournal/myspace/etc...

    so the part about weekly progress is a really good idea! start up a myspace group or something... bubbafett... and we can all check in weekly.

    my initial goal was 170, so i'm REALLY close now. i'll actually probably go a bit lower since there's still some squish that could stand to go away. when i started, 170 seemed reeeeaaaaallllly far off. now i'm thinking 160 seems more like it.

    but seeing as i just had to get a medium vest from batninja, i'd say it has been working well.

    Why do I all of a sudden feel like I'm eaves dropping on a conversation my wife would be having with her friends

    I always pictured Mandos conversing about "manly" stuff

    It takes real men to talk about the pesky pudge.

    The Myspace group sounds like a great idea! Of course that means I'll have to actually join Myspace.
