Ha! I am toying with the idea of a short halo fan film too, but the script calls for two spartans which is making it difficult since I have only 1.2 suits.

also eternal, why did you use cardboard? I just bought 5 sheets of 2 x 3 foot matting board for 7 dollars.

exactly i have my secret locations that i go look for cardboard but when i am getting 10ft, by 4ft. solid pieces and big screen tv boxes, why would i go spend money on matting board which is too small for my need any way, which i have also got a good amount of for free but smaller pieces and in fact it is what most of my space ship is made of. And if you read a couple posts ago i said that i just lost my job, and don't have any extra money to splurge on supplies, so i'm going with the most economical rout i can.

My Boss is remodeling his house at the moment. So he has a dumpster full of good cardboard. I grabbed about 30 pounds of it. Theyre not going to be finished for another few weeks. So I have acsess to more when I need it.

Sorry about the job dude =/ Good luck on the new job hunt!

Man it would be so cool if some of you other talented people lived near me in the OC, I would love to get other fans and artists involved.

Hey Eternal do you have bigger pictures of the chest armor? Would really appreciate it. :D

Thanks. Oh and did you use foam or anything inside the helmet for support?

the helmet is built on top of a base ball helmet, which alreadt has existing padding.

That helmet is absolutely perfect. Yes making armor out of cardboard is perfect when in a financial pinch. I got all the cardboard for my ODST for free at work.

Here is an update on the torso armor. I am gonna try and complete the armor by haloween.

here are some pictures i took off the Believe, interactive thing, this is as good a referance as i could get of the front, I know that the back is different, but i am changing other thing to make it similar but not exact, since the armor in the game is different and the armor in the live action is different, than this armor i will make my own version for my armor.
