    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...

    Never Skip Leg Day - My ODST Leg Armor Upgrades

    Since I rushed my ODST build and used Andrew DFT's templates in order to make it in time for Planet Comicon KC this year, I wasn't too happy with the shins and thigh armor. It's hard to drop feet first into hell if you don't have the proper leg protection, so let's get to work: I wish I had...

    Halo Reach ODST WIP

    I'm new to using foam but I decided the best place to start would be with the ODST armor. I'm using Andrew DFT's patterns because they looked like an easy start for beginners. I didn't get pictures of the bare chest piece, but at this point I had a protective coat as well as a layer of black...

    What is under armour?

    My son and I are creating a MarkVI costume out of pepakura designs and foam EVA. What do you use to attach the armour to? I've read of motorcycle gear, but that's way to expensive. Any other ideas would be sooooo greatly appreciated Halloween is fast approaching.! Thanks!

    First time spartan build, any good tutorials?

    Hi all, I'm relatively new to halo costuming, my first build was a DFT style ODST for last Katsucon. I've decided to tackle a full spartan build, specifically the classic Halo 3 Mk VI armor (partly because I already have the Rubies deluxe H3 chief helmet, which I'll just need to repaint and...
