    Nov 4, 2013, 10:41 PM - Mark VII Sizing Issues #1

    Ok to start off I made my mark VII Master Chief armor a couple of months ago (I literally made it all except the helmet within two weeks before Dragon Con so needless to say it was a speed build) and im relatively happy with everything except the chest peice the sizing is off (horribly)
    Here is what i mean


    I have it sized at at 15" wide and I'm using eva foam for this build, any suggestion for sizing would be greatly appreciated

    I just finished pepping my chest piece and thankfully it fits just fine. I followed the advice from HaloGodess's sizing thread as well as advice from Cereal Killl3r. Make sure you measure from the bone of one shoulder joint to the other. You want the widest possible measurement. It might help to get a friend or family member to take the measurement for you. Cereal Killl3r has a video on sizing pepakura that I know I found very helpful if you haven't already watched it.

    It all looks great but like you said about the chest, it looks small, but hey its done and you wore it to DragonCon. Like he said, Cereal Killer Studios on youtube is a great channel to check out.

    I used Halogoddess tut on sizing and had to make 2... first one cause i was a little tired when i messured my chest and didnt add 2on in for added "fluffiness of my larger frame" . Cereal has one of the best videos ive seen on sizing so you dont have to read.. that and you get to see someone from Canada!
