Helmet Size help!!
« on: May 11, 2021, 01:53 AM »
 :jango: Alright, so hereís this issue. Iím built weird. I have a big head (and by big I mean pretty much average) and a very, very slim body. Iím 6í1 and ~130 pounds, depends on how good dinner was. In my full unfinished kit I feel like I look like a kid in a party city costume wearing one of those one size fits all masks. I need to know if this is just me being insecure about my body or an actual potential issue for app, or just to look good aesthetically. Oh, and I know my kits got some CRL issues, feel free to comment on them since Im in pre app and have only gotten a handful of opinions.

Per the CRLs:
Quote
- Helmet size will be judged on a case by case basis. Generally, the helmetís width should not greatly fall short of or exceed 1/2 the width of the wearerís shoulders measured from armored shoulder plate to armored shoulder plate.

You look pretty close there. A suggestion might be to bulk out your shoulder plates a bit. Add additional layers, thickness, or trauma plating. this will increase the overall width of your kit, and make the proportions of the helmet feel a bit more consistent.

You got a great looking kit going on there.
