Hi all...I'm new to posting to this site so I hope I'm posting in the correct place.
I'm a long time admirer of this website but I've finally begun my project to make up an ESB Boba Fett costume. My cousin decided to help me jump-start the project by getting me a rough resin casting. I know he meant well, but it's a bit on the wavy side... Also, when he urged me to try it on it did not fit. I can't squeeze my coconut into this thing. He tried contacting the seller and he wouldn't take it back...despite the fact it has a 4" crack. The seller recommended letting the helmet sit in hot water and to try "forming" it until it fit. Also saying that "once the hole for the visor is cut, it should fit. This wasn't true...
Anyways, I digress...
Has anyone else had an issue with sizing ? Are most helmets the same size ? If they are, I might want to consider going with a Vader, Bossk, or Stormtrooper project. Although, my heart is set on an ESB Boba Fett since he's my all time favorite.
I figure as a worse case scenario, I can paint it up for an awesome decorative piece.
Any ideas/advice ?
Thanks ! ! !
