To be honest i don't expect to that they would be sold lower then 600 dollars. My budget for a nice halo helmet is between 600/800 dollars, but I'm more of a ODST fan and there isnt yet a ODST costume/helmet.
Well, so far Ive probably spent around 300 dollars. And Ive got almost 2 helmets done fiberglassing. But thats it. One Im selling in the classifieds and one thats going to be my main helmet. Then Im going to start working on the other parts. Im not going to try to get mine done by halloween or H3 release because I want mine to be perfect. And it will be.
