Seems to me like the helmet is entirely too long for your face. Very much like a Deathwatch helmet. If that's what you want to go for, by all means go for it, but the WOF helmet templates always seemed much better by far to me. I am, however, a sucker for the classics  :P

It could also have been off if you were making it with regular printer paper, that could be easily solved by using card stock or heavier paper. I also transferred my paper templates to cereal box cardboard, then made my pep mockup with that and hot glue.

But if you do keep with that template, I'd take an inch or two off the bottom. The entire thing just seems disproportionately tall to me. If you do that though, make sure before and after you cut it still covers your entire face and head.

The only other thing I could think of is that you don't have earcaps on the pep helmet, which could make it look taller and thinner. That'd be a minor thing though

Definitely looks a little long, might be that throwing you off, as it seems to fit. Will definitely need ear caps of some form though, that will stop some of the elongated look.
Pep domes are often very slightly off - it's usually fixed when applying the filler as you can use the filler to even it all out.

I agree that the helmet is a little long. If you go to Fierfek's pepakura file development you can download a nice Boba helmet which I'm using for my pep helmet.

Not sure if its death watch or not, as it was just labeled "clone wars." I might try a different template, or see if I can make one some other way.

Yep that sounds about right, the Deathwatch helmet is a Clone Wars helmet, you can tell by the ends of the T-visor coming to points at the end instead of being squared off. You could certainly keep that aspect with a standard Boba helmet, just cut the pep files and fill it so that it comes to that point
