    Foam Infinite Armor

    Ok, one bicep/shoulder is done. I'm still not 100% happy with some folds/cuts. And there are still some needless parts and honestly I see some deltas between this model and the screen captures from the infinite trailer, so I have done some free-handing in my actual piece that is not reflected...

    Foam Infinite Armor

    Hey gang, As a follow up to a previous post, I'm making this build thread in order to keep any files I edit in an easier to find format. Quick recap, I have 3D models built by MoeSizzlac, Satchmo III, and xtreemenoob. Those original files are here: Helmet - Satchmo III did a helmet: Halo...

    3d and pep kicking my butt

    Here's my stab at making the bicep/shoulder into a foam pep. I'm not convinced the back-side of the shoulder is necessary and so eliminated some of the inner parts. I'm also not 100% confident that all of the folds are necessary in a few parts, but frankly I'm tired of clicking. So I guess...

    3d and pep kicking my butt

    Replying to my own thread, I think I have found "a" way, but hoping there is another. But once unfolded into this mess I see that I can rejoin faces in the 2D screen and humpty-dumpty this thing back together in the way I want. Its fairly tedious but should let me assemble this the way I see...

    3d and pep kicking my butt

    Hey gang, So I like the new Infinite armor the more I see it, and am probably going to abandon my H4 plans to make one of these instead. So I've found the files that are available so far created by the ever impressive MoeSizzlac <salute>. These are 3D files for printing. I then figured I...

    halo master chief undersuit build help

    That gives me an idea to cut the armor pieces out of latex and cover with the fabric. They would be much more flexible than Eva foam. Although I wonder if the latex would provide enough of a feel/height to be worth doing vice just laying down more fabric alone...

    halo master chief undersuit build help

    Doing similar. I don't normally post WIP pics because it jinxes my projects and I never finish them then. (Looking at you dinosaur costume...). But am in a similarly "stuck" situation and looking for advice/thoughts on the undersuit. Clearly the 2500's have more interesting fabric than we do...

    Where to go for lore?

    Hey gang, So if one were to try to understand the Halo world solely from the stories and dialogue from the games, well they'd be pretty lost. At least I was way back in the day and spending time these past weeks replaying everything hasn't helped. Suffice to say the exposition is a little...

    Current thoughts on armor styles

    Hey gang. Just getting back into the "Halo-verse" after a few years off. Am motivated to make a new set of armor but my brain is exploding from all of the options, styles, etc. I built a Halo 3 style MC a few years ago and was originally thinking I'd just move down the timeline and build a...

    Foam vs fiber

    Hey gang, Built a Halo 3 foam armor many years ago and while here in zombie-apocalypse lockdown and thinking of a new build (halo 4 style). Havent been on this site in quite a while so am having a time sorting through the. ariousbthreads and posts. But I'm having trouble getting a sense of...

    Hello and thanks

    Hello all and thanks for letting me in. Built a Halo 3 style many years ago (when foam was just starting to be a replacement for fiberglas). Mainly to see if I could. Have since worn it for a variety of christmas parties and other events and had it on a mannequin in my office for a couple of...
