    Pepakura H2A ODST Cosplay

    I've known about 405th for awhile, but it wasn't until now I decided to scroll through the threads. Recently I've gotten into the ODSTs more than the Spartans, but I more specifically gotten into the Halo 2 (Anniversary) ODSTs. For some reason, I find them a bit more appealing than the Halo 3...

    Modded DFT EVA odst smg finished

    finally finished my modded version of DFT's smg. Really happy with how it turned out considering its the second EVA prop I have made, the first being my pistol which is close to completion as well. also would it be worth making a tutorial detailing how I made the changes to DFT's original design?

    Okay So never made a prop costume of any kind, deciding to just roll with it. I'm in Texas so I have been without power for like a week now (the power block rolling is a lie, for me at least :c ) so I decided to do something to keep me busy and moving since everything is shut down.

    Xcoser ODST Helmet Repaint & Potential Full Build

    I guess this is the start of my ODST journey, I've got the skillset now that I think I can create some cosplay work that would be up to my own standard and sorting a helmet is the first part of that journey. I've got a few ideas on how to build the full armour but for now I think well keep this...

    ODST Right Shoulder

    Here is the ODST Right Shoulder. As you see I may have gotten a little creative with its design on making some form of Elite Hunting ODST Unit. If you go back to the Thigh guard there you can see a Kill Count of Elites just for fun.

    ODST Chest & Shoulders

    Here is a wip of the Chest and Shoulders of my ODST my original plan was to apply a vinyl sticker to the chest piece but the adhesive didn't seem to want to stick. So what I did was used the sticker as a stencil to create the UNSC Reach crest using black sharpie and a white paint pen.

    405th Infantry Division Emblem on armor

    Is it permissible to put the 405th emblem onto any Halo armor creations I make? And, if and when I join a regiment, can I place that emblem on my armor as well? Just curious, because I thought it would be cool to have those on my odst chestplate.
