There are a lot of good sellers around for helmets and armor and everything.
There's a pretty good range of prices depending on what kind of helmet it is (resin, fiberglass, etc.)
Two that come to mind right away are Sgt. Fang, or Bobamaker. If you do searches for those, you should come up with several threads about them.
You're in Newport News? I used to live there when I was stationed at Langley AFB! I lived in Lochhaven Apartments just off Old Oyster Point Rd.

Yeah newport news right in kiln creek. I know exactly where those apratments are lol. Good to hear from ya and thank you for the direction to go in. I will research it then see what happens. Talk soon.

Here is the list I think you should go buy for your hight and build!
Helmet: Terminal Fettler
Armor: Fett Pride
Gauntlets: Man of War
Ammo Belt: Batninja
Spikes: Russ Rep
Jet Pack: Man of War (if he no longer makes them, then go with Boba Maker)
Sidepouches and Spats: Sky Gun Bro
Chest Lights: TK409
Shin Tools: Boba Maker
Wookie Braids: Julie
Blaster: Hyperfirm (If you cant get one then go with Sidewinder)
Helmet electronics: Hyperdyne Labs
Girth Belt: Watch the cargo hold for one
That should cover it.... Those are very similar to what I have in my get up and I am 6' 5" and thin so it will look correct on you as well.

Do you think where the UK is banning replica firearms that sidewinders kit will still be available? Might end up having to go the master replicas route

Since its in pieces it should be fine. That is how you get around automatic fire arms in the US. it has to be in a million pieces.

If you're doing a ROTJ Fett I'd suggest either a Sgt. Fang or Marrow Sun helmet.

Also, I would suggest keeping an eye out in the Cargo Hold every once in awhile...not often but sometimes you can pick up some awesome parts at great prices.
In the meantime, welcome to the addiction...you're one of us now...
