Greetings, all. I am a proud member of the 501st CT Garrison (Connsquad, represent!!! TK/SL 7832. My first costume was an ESB Darth Vader followed by an ANH Stunt Trooper. Next, I'm looking for a project that'll be long-term, so I've decided to take the plunge and pursue a Jango costume...mostly because of the cool factor, but I also suspect there will be a fair amount of painting and assembly involved which I find to be tons of fun. That said, I've been lurking around this site for a bit, but wanted to introduce myself and ask the experts some specific questions.
First and foremost, I consider the "face" of Jango to be a major focal point/"make or break" element of the costume. I don't want to proceed any further until I feel comfortable purchasing a helmet that I know will work with my size and retain a high level of screen accuracy.
SO my question is, what would you all recommend for a 5' 11'' individual with a SNUG hat size of 7 1/4? From what I hear and read, ASOK helmets seem like a great choice and are of screen lineage (which I find very appealing)...HOWEVER, I also understand that Temuera Morrison is actually 5' 7'' which makes me wonder if that would look too small in proportion to the rest of my body.
Thoughts? Insights? Suggestions?
