    The pant legs seem a touch long but they will be brought up but the pinching of the fabric from belts around the waist as well as the boba-thong from the cod armor. Looks like a good fit to me.

    As apolifka said, a touch long on the legs, but between the boots and spats, won't be an issue. How does it feel on you?

    Get ya some blousing straps to bring up the pants legs (less than $3 at a surplus store or just a couple of thin hair scrunchies). Be glad you have a front zipper, trust me it sucks when you have to use the bathroom and your suit has a rear closure.

    Don't worry, before you know it, it'll only take ya 5 minutes to suit up. When I first got my ROTJ Boba, it would take about 20 minutes unless I had a helper, now I can do it in about 5. I just wear the jumpsuit to where I'm going and put the rest on at the location.

    ^ Be thankful you have a zipper at all! :P I had no zipper, nadda when I wore it out in my local Geeky night out, that was for 2 hours. Then Comic-Con... That was 4 hours of awesomeness, because I was sweating so much and so busy with my photo getting taken every 2 seconds that I didn't even think about it :P

    I think that once you put the knees on too that will help bring up the pant legs. It seems to be only a minor thing.

    Re: FLight Suit Fitting ?

    Looking at your suit, I can clearly see that the flight suit is a bit too big for you, especially at the arms and legs. The vest is big and long too, this is why you lowered the armor (which doesn't look too accurate: is too flat and wide - who is the maker?). The ideal placement of the chest/abdominal plates is closer to the collar, but I think your collar plate isn't permanently fixed in the image, this is why it stays higher on your shoulders.

    My advice is this: if you bought the flight suit/vest from bobamaker, but you (or him) had give the wrong measurements, you could contact him for a resize on both cloth parts, then (if you succeed) you can try a new armor test fit.

    I hope I didn't sound too harsh.

    I correct myself: the armor is too short. This image is a comparison between an original armor vs. your armor. The big difference is the lenght of the chest plates and the mishaped, small abdominal plate:

    Sorry for the late reply, but I had some problems responding on the forums.

    Here are some measurements of one of the original armor (these are approximated values and might need some confirmation):

    If you want to convert the metric to imperial values then search Google for 'mm to inch'.

    There are Wizard of Flight templates for the chest armor that are proportionally very nice as well. Look in the chest armor subsection

    Re: FLight Suit Fitting ?

    The armor measurements I did is for the already curved plates, so you must count for extra material when you cut the armor parts. Use WOF's templates as a base (I think the large armor is the 1:1 scale) then compare your armor to the original one when you heat-bend the parts.

    The shortcut to the WOF (wizardofflight) armor templates can be found in the 'Boba Fett Armor' forum section in the 'All Boba Fett Armor Stencils And Templates' sticky thread ==> Updated Printable Armor Templates in Various Sizes. You need the first PDF file from the list found in the end of the first post.
