1st Build Crafting my first O.D.S.T

Greetings people!

Here's a bit of story time for those interested, haha.

The first time I ever saw an O.D.S.T was in Halo 2 during the Drop on Beta Halo and I was in Awe since then, I dreamt of wearing one of those armours.

I never dared to jump into cosplaying since I found it to be a scary endeavour and trying it alone seemed like something impossible, that is until
I had the chance to talk to a 405th member by pure chance! When I mentioned how much I wanted to wear one since my childhood he offered to teach me how to build one instead of me buying a pre-made one from him! (Honestly, I love how he decided to help a fellow fan live his dream by making me craft the armour instead of just taking the money, Dunno if it sounds weird).

Anyway! Slowly but surely I'm making it, I don't have a lot of free time at the moment so here is what I was able to craft so far!

-The basic Harness is done, I'm starting my work on the extra stuff going on it + the belt.

-I will update this Thread whenever progress is made

I’m super excited to see how this build comes together, especially when you mentioned you’ll be possibly doing a Shep from ME color scheme !! Such a good crossover!

Glad you too likes my armor so far !

I'm about to start the fore arms and those looks complicated haha!

I found the forearms annoying. I had to modify the templates as I went. Made them a little easier to work with.

Regarding the modification. did you change it to bend using 25 /45 degrees angle?

That,s the biggest question i have so far on this piece, I feel like just bending it would be weird, but cutting 25/45 degrees would make it look super blocky! T.T


That's so awesome that you found a mentor! And that's looking awesome, way better any foam work I've been able to do thus far.
Thanks it means a lot !
 
Lookin sick, I haven't seen any info on you scaling your armor? Other than wearing it, how are you making sure it fits you?

I'm using the model from Armor Smith then I send the measurements to Pepakura, print the pieces and assemble them real quick with scotch tape to measure the length :p

It worked until the forearms, for some reason the lengths are perfect but the Width is too big... And if I change the width then the length is too short... I'll probably cut some pieces off to make it less bulky
(Pics under the post, since a picture is worth a thousand words haha)

Took longer than I wanted, but I finally made the forearm!

I'll probably redo the elbow protectors at some point.
