    If you're 6 feet tall and wearing a Don Post if anything IT should be too small. Don Posts are undersized from the real deal. Did you try it on with the rest of the costume or just on it's own?

    Is there any kind of padding in the helmet or a helmet liner?

    If you are wearing just your helmet, without the rest of the costume, it may look big. Pics would be the best to help you determine. If its a Don Post, you pretty much can't go smaller anyways

    well, like i said, i did heat it up and widen it, it looks alittle more like the mystery helmet now (i think thats what its called, i dunno im a noob) anyway, i think it looks the way it does because i kinda have a giraffe neck, so i padded the vest alittle and it looks alittle better, i also added alittle more padding around the neck so it helped...and yes, the helmet has a liner. thanks for the help

    Remember your helmet to body size will change when you get your full armor on.
    If your helmet seems too small before you have tried it without armor, it will look even smaller.
    If it looks too big for you without armor it will look smaller when you get your armor on.
