FAT Fetts


Okay guys my Fett costume is coming together but im a little nervous.
Im 200 lbs and 6 feet tall. I have a bit of a beer gut.
Hopefully I dont look all shabby in my costume.
I noticed a lot of you are smaller and skinny.
If your an overweight Fett please post your pics so I can check them out.
Thanks.

The girth belt and ammo belt help quite a bit with the protruding gut syndrome. You could also get a cinch from your local drug store for about 20 bucks. That may help too.

I might also fall into the 'hefty' category, but I refuse to wear my costume until I lose a few pounds. It's important that everything fits properly, and doesn't stretch over your body.

Not a proud pic, but this is one of the last times I wore the costume:

Also, and this is a pet peeve of mine concerning Fett costumers, is that there should be a neck. The helmet should not sit directly on the collar armor. This can be achieved, even for those of us without necks, by adjusting the helmet liner, and making sure the collar armor is snug on the vest.

BN...I agree with the neck comment. Mine appears that way because that was the first time I had everything on. By my first outing, I had everything sitting the way it should, and I had a neck. (y)

Boba Fatt here too. I am deliberatly not putting on the whole suit untill I am happy with my weight. Plus I have a lot of parts to paint still.

I'll have a custom done for November, so I won't be innacurate or anything, but I'd really like to drop a few pounds so when I have a Fett wearable I won't be Boba Fatt. Oh, and I'm about 5'8" and 225 lb. I'll need to get out into the battlefield a bit more often and stop hanging around the base with the free donuts. :lol:
 
I'm about BatNinja's size proportionally.
I am actually working on some armor designs that are slightly oversized to compensate. Will post pics once I have them painted. Essentially about 2 inches greater area over each armor piece.. PS Buckeye how exactly did you "fix" your vest?
 
Im built like that too. I'm 6ft 2** pounds. I carry all my weight in my gut ( why have a six pack when you can have a keg:cheers ) and my big noogin. I do not look my wieght cause I carry it well. Anyway I am debateing on waiting to makeing my suit or just go ahead and make my suit ( give me a little more insentive in my weight lose splurge I am on ATM ). I might go ahead and just make mine oversized anyway, it would be hard to build and not wear.

I had to sew an additional strip of velcro diagonally across the bottom of the vest to get it to close a little tighter around my gut. It looks a lot better when it closes correctly.

Maybe we could put together a list of us 'stocky' Fetts, and post weekly progress on a weight-loss plan! My goal is to get down to 200 before Celebration 4.

Well I'll start out the stocky Fetts. I'm 5'6" and 170lbs. My plan is to be 155 by C4. I'm planning to lose fat and gain some muscle. Yes, I have a beer gut.
