The ODST from ADFT was actually my very first costume ever made I appreciate your words of encouragement they help a lot!Andrew DFT ODST or Marine is the very typical starting point for a lot of people(I almost did it too). I had no costumes under my built and just finished my 405th template provided ODST(I scaled it to my body though). If you have some patience, trust me you can get any armor in here done with some quality.
(I suggest using foam, maybe pep the helmet if you want though thats what I did)
Okay, cool thank you a ton. That is exactly what I needed to get myself started outSince Halo Combat Evolved is the earliest game in the series and has the lowest quality of graphics armor from that game, the original Mark V and the Marine Armor is the lowest poly and therefore most straight forward to put together with pep, but that same low def nature does allow for some creativity and interpretation of the in game look.
There are a few different methods you can do for a halo 4/5 undersuit, although they are a little more complicated to do since more of the undersuit is exposed compared to every other game. As a fellow lover of the recruit armor, I will say it was a fairly simple build to do. The only hard part was adding detail to the simple templates given, and figuring out how the peices will fit together.A follow up question to the easiest armor is where does everyone get the undersuits for their armors? I decided to go with the recruit armor from halo 4.
