    HELP! I have a big head!

    Hi guys!

    I want to start making a Boba costume, but I have a big problem. Namely my head. It's big. I need to buy extra large size hats and most costume helmets/masks (rubies, don post, etc) just don't fit.

    What do I do?

    I do not think I have the skills to fabricate my own helmet (yet), so do you guys know where I could buy a bigger helmet? Is the Master Replicas one bigger than the costume ones? Does somebody make a kit that I could buy (like the 501st stormtrooper helmet kits)?

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    I'll try and get a measurement of my MR tomorrow for you. That'll at least give you an idea.

    Thanks a bunch!

    I've also been reading that Sgt. Fang's helmets are a bit larger than most. Does anyone know how I can contact Sgt. Fang?

    the MR and mystery helmets (like fang's) are all really, really close size-wise.

    if i remember right, the mlc helmets are the biggest out there. check with

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/members/mlcallanta/

    for sizing on those.

    I too have a large grape, and have a Fang bucket. I can get it on my head, but my nose touches the visor. It's a great helmet, but I won't be able to wear it. Need to find me a bigger bucket, too.

    You are looking for FP! Contact Fettpride if your melon is a tick larger than usual. I know what I am talking about! ;-)

    My MR is quite large. And my head is quite big and my nose is bigger. I tend to wear XL motorcycle helmets in most brands.

    Thanks for all the help guys! I really appreciate it.

    I have PM'd some of the makers. Hopefully, I'll hear back from them soon.

    You also might try DeltaSquadBoss. He's got a run of Mando helmets going on right now in various sizes.
