    Halo 5 Fred-104: Foam Techsuit and Armor build

    Oh absolutely! I have already confirmed with the artist and will credit them in everything I post pertaining to the design and build of the helmet so that way they get recognition for their hard work!

    Whoa hey now, that laser cut stuff looks beautiful! I am going to probably use that as inspiration cause I think I'm going to go the route of hand-carving all of this, and hating it lol

    seanawnwalt and Marinesniper: For the Techsuit: I have been using the files provided in the armory for the unfolded techsuit. I mirror-imaged one side, and then printed it out, taping all the pieces together. Once I sized it right to my torso, I then started cutting out the MOST raised parts...

    Halo 5 Fred-104: Foam Techsuit and Armor build

    UPDATE: Thinking hard about it I decided to commission a 3d rendered helmet by Indigenous Effects for the purposes for 3d printing it for myself. I will no longer make this out of EVA foam. I will be using my Ender 3 Pro to 3d print all of the helmet, minus the visor. There is a possibility...

    Halo 5 Fred-104: Foam Techsuit and Armor build

    There are some tutorials on how to do body wraps, create your own templates, or just use a simple motocross suit or zentai suit. There is plenty of information out there on the 405th specifically and plenty of other cosplay YouTube channels and makers in the community. I would see what's in your...

    I'm hoping it can turn out as good as I am imagining it. Sounds like you have a solid plan for how to do the tech suit! Excited to see yours as well

    Remember, these are just two of them. They have a whole line of smaller ones, thicker spacing ones, sewable, etc. Peruse their catalog if you don't want those specific ones!

    FidLock Snap -- Another way to attach armor

    Hey all! After doing some research I found a magnetic locking mechanism that I want to try out for my new armor build. I'm hoping this is an easy and clean method of attaching armor and taking it off, potentially making your armor customize-able for certain bits. Though I haven't tried it yet...

    Halo 5 Fred-104: Foam Techsuit and Armor build

    Just an update, I am contacting WBC industries to see if they can special order it in smaller quantities. Strapworks, one of the other sellers of Fidlock buckles, would need an order of 5000 or more to even get a special order. Not feasible. I am following up with WBC industries now, and...

    So far this is what I found, they have worldwide shipping, it gets expensive with shipping: Magnetic Fasteners by Fidlock Alternatively, I may contact the Etsy seller (there seems to be only one) and see if they have what I am looking for and decent shipping. I'll post if I find out more!

    Currently looking into this! There might be an Etsy shop or EU website that sells them. So far I only see a catalogue and a request for a sample.
