im 5' 11" but kinda scrawny but i have a bigger head so i used FrizleFry's scale of 25.04979

i may take a small part out of the bottom to make it a little smallerbecause it is a little long even with jeans on

It's hard to tell from your pics, but spartans aren't exactly shaped like everyday people. The waist is oddly skinny compared to the body mass of the rest of the body. For my armor set, I left the crotch bigger, cut out the paper section between the crotch/ass/ouches and used elastic and strung them all together on it.

Size looks fine to me, but it will depend on what you wear under it.

we dont care about your half a helmet, lol jk

Actually, it's a good precursor as to how things might turn out. If a person takes the time to assemble it well out of paper, it usually means they have the dedication to make the finished product as good. And not to be an ass or anything man, but I wouldn't critique others helmets if I were you...

Dude...I just realized...you're from Weirton...I'm in Wheeling. If you ever need any help in real life, let me know.
 
Looking good man! Hey Zeke I got a question for you. I have a cheaper glue gun as well and I have noticed at times it will leak out the side behind the nozzle. how would you rate the Cheap wall mart glue gun? Having any problems with it? Is it the mini glue sticks or the larger glue sticks? I am thinking about getting a new one and junking this one.
