    Short neck or long neck?

    Hi all,just need some feedback on the preferred Boba Fett appearance.When I'm suit up,I think I wear my bucket short & my neck seal doesn't show that much( on pics ) unless your're a kid looking up.Any idea how to look more Boba Fettish?Thanks

    Add a bit more padding at the top of your helmet.

    Exactly. Another trick is not to look down through the wide horizontal part of the visor, but instead get used to looking through the vertical part of the "T", just below the horizontal. You have a little less visibility that way, but it keeps your helmet looking level or slightly up, even when you're looking down. Takes some getting used to, but it makes you look less like a turtle in pictures.

    That

    My helmet is padded up such that my eyes are about 1/2" lined up with the visor. I mostly look out the middle... same with my clone helmet.

    It makes me a bit taller, and makes sure my neck is showing.

    That settles it. I am adding a 1/2 to 3/4 inches of padding to my helmet.
