I was looking for something else the other day and came across Arch's first set of armor in her thread and thought of you. Her first chest plates were more of an angled look. The can be seen HERE, I'm sure she'd be willing to explain how she did them if you wanted to go that route.

And I love your concept art too by the way, can't wait to see that made! :D

Thank you, Seugtai. That looks very much like what I'm after. :D Thank you for the help.

And you're armor is...breathtaking. You're like, the goddess of Bondo.  ;D

Okay, so I taped the templates on me, and wrangled my mom into taking pictures of me. I think these are the right size, but I'd like some feedback before I go and cut everything out and find they're not right.

Note: Please excuse the chest plates. They are for reference purposes only.






EDIT: Sorry two of them are sideways. You can click on them to see them right-way-up on Photobucket. And I apologize for the size of them. I did re-size them on Photobucket, but it doesn't look like I did.  :-\

Never mind...

Hmm, they look good! Although, to me, it seems like they are a tad too wide. I don't know, it might just be me.

Thanks, all. :) I'm thinking I may have to trim the collar plate a little...

I trimmed my mine. I couldn't move my arms up very far due to the width of the collar plate. But because I trimmed the collar plate I also took off some of the chest plates too so they match up still.

Your concept pics look great! :D Keep up the good work.

So, it's been forever since I posted on this, so I'm just going to bump this back up. :)

I'm looking at doing the angled plates, and I was wondering, how would you go about shaping the angled plates? Ideas and suggestions are most welcome. :)

all righty, I thought up another question.  :D

I've been reading through the various threads regarding helmet sizing and buying, and I've been trying to figure out the sizing ratio. I'm still scratching my head about the '1:1' or the '2:1' ratios. Is there a specific mathematical formula to this, or is just a relative thing? Also, I was thinking I'd need to be absolutely positive that the helmet was the right size before I spent all this money.

I've been tossing around the idea getting of the Jango 2 piece ('cause I'm small [like, 5 foot nothing]) and I was wondering if you can only buy it online, or if there's a place to go and try on different helmets. (That may just be wishful thinking on my part)

"1:1" is referring to the helmet's size relative to the original prop in the movie. A 1:1 Boba is the same size as the helmet Jeremy Bulloch wore in the OT. A 1:1 Jango is the same size as Temuera Morrison wore in AoTC.

"2:1" is referring to the ratio between your shoulder width and the helmet width, as in you shoulders should be twice as wide as your helmet.

As far as trying on helmets, you could see if the clan in your area is throwing an Armor Party any time soon, you could likely try on some helmets there.

As for finding a 2-Piece online, they're getting to be pretty scarce (Looking for one myself ???).

Mines a two piece and it fits very well, I'm 5'7".

But if you're looking to buy a 2 piece jango you shouldn't have to spend more than $35 on the toy helmet. I've seen some going for $50, which is just ridiculous. On the somewhat "official starwars costume website" the rubies 2 piece as going for $23, but it was out of stock last time I checked about a month ago. As far as looking in stores for them, I've tried newburyport comics, target, walmart, etc. They have all the newer toy helmets like the new boba, grievous and clone trooper, none have had jango.

I'm sure with some research you could find one online, but at the moment it looks as though all the people who are asking a fair price don't have any in stock or are no longer selling... maybe because there's half a year til halloween?? I don't know.

so, with all the helmet info in mind I had my wonderful buir (mother) measure my shoulders, and we came up with an ~18 shoulder span. This seems like it will make my helmet kind of small if I go with the 2:1 ratio...*raises eyebrow* 9 inches at the base? Seriously?

 So, am I looking at a 1:1 helmet?

Like I said before, the Jango 2 piece is looking (to me, at least) to my most viable option as of right now.

From what I understand on helms, you definitely do not want a 1:1 Boba, though i believe the 1:1 jango, which is a bit smaller, should work.

I read it was 9.5 inches on the J2P. At any rate, it's not an exact science, but based on your measurements and everything I've read, the J2P is the right fit for you.
