    Looks good man. I am 6'1" too, so it is good to see that someone our height can pull it off.

    Even without adjusting the minor suggestions above, I don't foresee you having a problem at all getting a BH designation in the 501st... as for the helmet size you mentioned above, I believe the helmet should sit between the clavical/trapezious muscle area when wearing without armor, so the width looks pretty good, but yeah it does sit a tad high on your neck. Cruzer's BKBT is a bit bigger, so sometime down the road you could try upgrading to one of those (you can always sell whichever you don't end up using )

    I don't really know why it sits high on me. I purchased the helmet off of a guy on ebay without knowing who Asok, Saint Nasty, or the dented helmet was. The helmet is slightly warped on the left side, but I don't know if that effects how it should sit.

    I did pick up that BKBT CC lid that Cruzer was selling not too long ago. We'll see what works

    Thanks everyone! I got my 501st approval/acceptance today. I tip my helmet to all of your amazing advice.

    I used to hunt down Jedi all the time in Star Wars Galaxies

    I will post pics in a month or so when I get my BKBT helmet and get my suit looking the way I want. I'm sure it will take several trooping events for me to situate things

    I'm still doing this myself.

    I just made some adjustments to my boots and my harness.

    Just did a three day troop in Seattle (Emerald City Comic-Con) as my first trooping event. I've already taken a heat gun to my collar armor (to shape it a little better to my build) and tons of other little tweaks. Overall, I did great and felt fine. Drank plenty of water

    As for tweaks, I'm still looking forward to working out the "case of the high hat Asok lid". Maybe my BKBT will cover that. The collar area is still REALLY bothering me, but I'll figure something out. I always had to have someone adjust it or tuck in my paint hood. Anyway, you'll find some pics of me scattered in the following albums. Enjoy!

    Also, it looks like me and some others were famous enough to make it onto the Geeks Are Sexy website:

    And some random photos:

    The neck may be bothering you but I don't see a major issue with the neck in the pics.

    Looks good.

    Looks awesome my man!

    I think the only thing I see is that your shin seems to be getting pushed up by the top of your shoe, but that is hard to adjust/plan for when you have a picture with your foot up like that.

    Keep at it man. For me, the time was ripe and went ahead and went all out. But even when you have great parts, you have to still work at it.




    ......or copy Seeker

    Thought I'd give my old thread a bump. My suit has progressed tremendously since I first put it on. Here is a comparison shot of the first time I suited up vs a troop this last weekend:



    My only advice after coming this far is to keep on what you're doing. Keep upgrading your suit when you can. Keep striving for screen accuracy. The next major upgrades for myself will be a LSFU flightsuit and flak jacket. That should come in October.

    And a cool shot that a friend snapped and stylized:
