    Stomach bulge

    Kind of a silly question, but this might cause a problem when I assemble my armor...

    What should I do if my gut makes the belly armor piece stick out far? I've got what you could call a "Grover" body, so the only fat part I have on my body will be pushing the belly piece out much farther than the chest pieces.

    Other than working out (duh), and other suggestions to even out the plane of my armor?

    LOL!!!!!!! Well, I have a bit of a beer gut myself, so I've got a few suggestions. Actually, by teh time you get all your belts & everything on, you will be able to hide it pretty well. Thank god for the Jet pack belt!!!! I usually tighten mine up a bit, & that does the trick. I also wear my girth & ammo belts a little higher & that helps as well if you tighten them up good. Not overly comfortable, but does look better!!! LOL

    +1 Super nice ESB

    That one home depot JP harness basically is a back brace and has a girdle built into it. I'm sure if the above suggestions don't work you can try something like a girdle or exercise neoprene band. I'm just going to use my finished Fett as my motivation to drop 20 lbs...

    the home depot braces are good both for help sucking it in, and helping your posture.

    the posture is a killer... you tend to lean back, which makes matters even worse!

    unfortunately, sit-ups alone don't flatten your abs. You have to lay off the corn syrup and beer and do tons of cardio.

    You could try an old fashioned girdle if you are desperate. Just don't tell anybody.

    Corn syrup, sure. Beer? Not a chance! I'm Canadian, you can't make me do that!

    I'm a big meat/veggies guy as it is, I grill lots and eat about 50% vegetarian.

    Re: Stomach bulge

    grilling is a healthy way to cook food i hear but try trading red meat in for some chicken and turkey and omit barbeque sauce if you use it currently and you problably will see some improvements for sure

    I rarely ever use barbecue sauce. I'm more of a marinade guy. I do fish once or twice a week, pork an chicken. Small steak like once a week. My dinners are very balanced.

    the quality of the meat matters hugely too... grass fed, locally raised beef will likely be healthier than an equivalent cut of corn fed, mass market moo.

    I don't think it looks that bad, guys. Have you seen some of the Snow or Scouts running around?!

    Re: Stomach bulge

    I'm roundish in the middle as well, my stormtrooper costume bears that out a bit! If you walk around holding the EE-3 across your midsection, no one will see your belly. Also, I think fans tend to look mostly at the helmet. I've lost 12 pounds since I got my armor a little over a month ago and it's made a difference. Now I've got to keep on exercising!! I want to look good in the flight suit as well


    BTW, I think you look fine in the photo. I don't see a "chubby Boba" by any means.
    Your costume is awesome!
