I am 6'5" with a shoulder width of 33" does that mean I have to build a helmet 16" across at the base? ??? Cause I don't want to look like Dark Helmet.

Youre about my size. I'm 6'06" nd just shy of 3' wide at the shoulders. Over the years I found I had to make mods to helmets to make them appear balanced, typically adding 1-3" of width to them. Then I started making my own and fixed the problem straight from the mold :)

Thanks Hondo. I eventually want to get 1 of your legacy helmets too. But for now I'm going to finish my  scratch builds.

I feel I'm in that weird grey area. Im 6'2 197, with 18.5 shoulder width, 10.5 from chin to top of head, and 23 inch circumference around my brow (give or take for the nose).  Ive been eyeing the open seasons deathwatch but I have a feeling it may be a bit to wide. Gonna do the smart thing and wait till i get everything else done, before I choose my helmet. Just unsure of which I should be going for. Jango sized or Boba.

And before I forget. Thank you all for making such a great reference thread. Crazy how much information and time spent is in here

What would be a good helmet size for me? I'm 5'11" with 17 1/2" shoulders. my brow is 22 3/4" in circumfrenece. I ask because I'm thinking about getter NME props medium Mando Stalker helmet but I dont want it to engulf my head.

Iv been lookong at alot of yalls pics of helmet width to sholder width proportions and also the boba pics from the movies and one thing i see is that the helmet width apears to be about 1"-1.5" out past the nipples close to where your clavical starts to turn in towards the sholder. Would some of yall who have the closest fit possable measure from the nipple out on yalls helmets and compare to see if im right? I have not finished my first helmet yet to know if my theory is right . But if it  is right then that can be a better reference to measure from if and when you have to widen a helmet or even cuts a helmet smaller. Ive made other helmets/masks for other cosplay outfits before and thats one of the ways i judge a proper width for a mask/helmet to be the right size on my body shape ;)

No, a Boba 1:1 would probably be too big for you.

If you want a production helmet, many of the vendors in the Supply Depot make a smaller scale helmet.  NME Props makes "medium" versions of all of their helmets & Saz makes a cast version of the Jango 2 piece helmet.  If you're looking to scratch build one, you can always try and scale the templates down a bit.  Pepakura files can also be scaled down if you're going that route.  Hope that helps!  :)

A vizsla or Demaun(I can't help promoting that thing) are good helmets for smaller Vode. J2P is also a good option for those on a budget since its minimal work for a decent turnout. The Demaun isn't currently being produced but you can still see the original sales thread in the trading station.
