I can't figure out if my shoulders are super small, or if I'm not measuring them right. Holding a tape measure to my shoulders, they are ~18 inches. I'm 5'11", 180 lbs. Seems like the Rubies 2 Piece is the right size if my shoulders are correct.How should I get the shoulder measurement?
Jango 1:1 scale, which includes the Rubies 2 piece, is 9.5" wide. Perfect for someone with 19" shoulders. Shoudl work as small as 17" and up to 20".Boba 1:1 scale is 11.5" wide. Perfect for someone with 23" shoulders. Should work down to about 22 and up to 25-26 before earcap modding or stretching become neccessary.If you fall in the 19.5-22" range, the Don Post COULD be the perfect match for you. There are other factors that can play in, shoudler width seems to be the primary factor though. But, things such as overall body width and girth, height, head height, head circumference etc all play in. At the end of the day, it's not a 100% science but, by going with shoulder width, yoiu have your best shot of getting it right. Some folks, no matter what, are going to have to scratchbuild.
