    Wanting to build MC armour from halo 4 or 5

    Team, I'm new here. I've been wanting to make the jump and make an as accurate as possible halo armour from halo 4 or 5. I have a few questions. Is it worth 3d printing, doing it in foam or buying the prestige costume and modifying. I have a bit of experience with working with 3d prints as...

    1st Build First Build - ODST

    This is my first ever cosplay, so it's a little rough, but it's so fun, and I'm learning tones. Started making this a few months ago. It's a mix of reach and halo 3 odst parts.

    Foam Edits to my chest armor

    Yo wonderful people of the 405th, question time. I’ve been trying to give my chest piece more of that “Hell jumper look” by making the bottom of the chest more curved. It’s completely Eva foam, so I was thinking maybe light use from a heat gun would do the trick, but I didn’t want to mess up the...
