    Seems to fit your size to me. Fett was a real Bobble-head. Seriously, it was a huge bucket.

    Looks about right to me, Boba does have a huge helmet, I have studied pictures and it seems that the helmet lines up with the inside shoulder studs. My new helmet does this but my old one doesnt. I think it will look fine.

    I'd say that it fits you fine. It's always hard to tell without the rest of the armour on.

    to get the flare right, she would want to widen the sides, which would pull the face in a little, no ? It should be perfect after that..

    Re: Is my Don post 2 big 4 me???

    I thought so too. Boba does seem to have a neck. Is there a helmet that is smaller than a DP?

    The helmet has a hathat liner in it I think, so IT sets up on your head to show your neck.

    So it sounds like if you flare out the sides more, which will bring in the nose and adjust the hard hat liner to show more neck, you'll be golden.

    I'd have to agree 100% with Webchief, once you get a liner installed and some armor on I think your DP will be fairly proportional.

    IMO - From the side, it doesn't look too bad, but from the front it looks huge. You might want to consider a Rubies Jango just because of the size.

    Who wouldn't want this?


    Sorry, didn't mean to go off topic, but couldn't resist.

    I am going to have to agree with Webchief and MARROW_SUN here. The armor will add alot to your size and completely proportion you out for the costume. Stick with the helmet you have there.

    The size should be fine but regardless you WILL have to reshape it in order for it to look better. You could heat it up with hot water, a heat gun or leave it in a hot car in the sun. When you cut the black, plastic visor piece out and add a real visor it will help support the correct shape more. Also, you can stuff the bucket with newspaper or something after you get it shaped to help KEEP that shape while its cooling.

    Re: Is my Don post 2 big 4 me???

    To shape mine, I heated it with a heatgun and when I had it flared the way I wanted it, I took a metal clothes hanger, cut it and bent it to fit the curve of my helmet and hotglued it in around the back.

    I used a one of those gold metal craft rings in mine to keep it in shape. I just cut it down to what I needed. Here are a couple of pictures that might help. The one of the craft ring is kind of blurry, sorry. If you search on here you can find others who have done a better job than me. There is a welth of info on this subject.
