these are really awesome templates, but i have a quick question....
which template would be the best to use if you are a tall girl (6'1") yet have a small frame (measurements 33; 25; 32)???
any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!
First, you'll have to be ready to do a lot of preliminary tiral-and-error and go through a lot of paper. *heh* As it says in the first post, the large templates (last listed before the body diagram), printed at 97.3% of full size will probably fit a 6'1" individual -- depending on your body proportions (leg-to-torso ratio).
Once you find the right length for your body, tweak the aspect ratio to narrow the width until it fits your girth. And remember that it's going to be over a bodysuit and vest, so allow for that bulk.
Print out, cut out, tape together, use a loop of painter's masking tape to stick the pieces to a sweatshirt or some such to check the fit, adjust as needed, repeat...
That should get you started in the right direction. Let me know if you need clarification anywhere in there. Have fun, and good luck.
Jonah-- thank you for your help, i've gotten quite a few ideas from a couple other guys who posted in my intro thread for femm mando armor; some of the girls on here have some KILLER concepts and mandos... which i am starting to think would be my best bet, because i dont want to do anything too boyish :P (even thought i'm a tomboy)...i saw something about "boob armor" and commented in a thread about it, just waiting to hear back from Rotton, as i don't know where to buy it online...
your concepts for tailoring measurements on armor will be of great use to me!!! thanks again!
Glad to help. Also, head over to the Mandalorian Mercs to see more FemmeMando concepts. Hydra (here, too), Pheonix [sic], and Vhe'dn are some of the best that spring to mind.
I'm tackling two custom Femmes also for a couple girlfriends. One's likely to be more Fett-like, the other's more lithe and form-fitting whilst still being well-armoured. That latter I should have in scan-able form within the next day or three, if you want to see more of what other people have come up with...
i think i am possibly going to go with a cobalt blue; grey; mac & cheese color theme...possibly with the jango fett leg armor, not too sure on that though...just tying to find out where i can locate some femm mando chest armor which isnt turning out to be the eastiets of things...but i will check out the mado merc site as well...
Thanks for the small template! Helped me a TON when I had to redo some pieces, just wish you'd of had them up 7yrs ago when I made the first set! Would have been soo much easier.
Thanks a million! I am printing these out in the first step towards my son's Halloween costume.
what kind of program are you guys using to print because mine are all turning out weird.

I'm just a little bit confused with the cod piece. In the side armor picture shown below, I'm pretty sure I've labeled them correctly, but what is the space there? In pictures I've seen of the cod piece, that would be filled in because the lower part is fairly high, but what should this be filled in with? I'm just a little confused obviously. Thanks
That Codpiece part should be more like a cup shaped to let room for the 'family jewelry'. It's better to cover that space and not fill in.
Fantastic! I am attempting to set up patterns for the female Mandalorian that was briefly seen on the preview for Clone Wars Season 4. I will add them when they are complete. Or, as complete as they can be without further images!
Is there a PDF version of all the templates (armor, helmet, etc.) for individuals 5'6"? If so can you email me those? the link that gives all GIF's doesn't work for me. Thank you.

All Boba Fett Armor Stencils And Templates. For the helmet go here All Boba Fett Helmet Stencils And Templates. If you want the Jetpack, the Shin Tools or some of the Weapons then go here Jetpack, Blasters, Shin Tools and Buckle Templates and for the soft parts go here All Soft Parts Templates.
I hope these links will help in your build.
