Hello, I stumbled upon this site 3 weeks b4 halloween. I was blown away at the possibilty of ownning my own halo suit. I thought it would be so cool to wear one for halloween. So i set out on a mission to get one ready in time. My entire armor build took 2 weeks. I had help with the cutting. I cut down on the sanding and bondo work to save time. I also learned a few things along the way. My armor isn't perfect u i didnt need it to be. I had alot of fun and got alot of attention when I went out. I alos missed a costume contest by 10 minutes. Many people came up to me and told me i could have won. I need to learn how to be on time! I am looking at doing a noble 6 build next, but this time i will take my time.

@ Gungryphon I was able to do it so fast becuase I had taken two weeks off. I was also lucky enough to have someone else help me with the cutting. I noticed the scissors are a tid bit faster for cutting out shapes then using a razorblade. You can definitely go faster if you buy one of those printers that will cut the shapes out for you. I am looking into getting one of them in the near future. I also only focused on the detail for the helmet and chest, bondo-wise, but mostly the helmet. I have a dremel rotary tool that helped me sand faster too.
