    Hi,
    I am new to the armour creating scene and am getting stuck. Last year I made my kid a R2-D2 costume out of a garbage can and decided that gave me the right to get ambitious

    I have a very low budget and not a great deal of skill. I've managed to start putting together a helmet from a template found on the Mandalorian Mercs, while following as much advice as I can find on youtube. Its taken me a few attempts to find the right material, now what i am finding is the templates are too small (for my adult, odd shaped, sized head) and I'm definitely not skilled enough (as I am now finding) to make adjustments on the go and re-size the template with addons and the like.

    Im not going to give up - does anyone have any advice on finding the right template and knowing whether its going to be the right size down the line?

    i can give that a try. Thank you for the advice!

    Should I find a template for a helmet - how will i know who it is intended for? The template ive been agonizing over was clearly intended for a child or someone with a very small head. so how will i know what the base size is?
