Just a small update today. The boots are about halfway done printing. Hopefully I’ll be able to work on them after the hot weekend.

I also did a quick repaint of my Hayabusa helmet to match my armor colors.

Multiple different helmets allows me to switch the look up easily

I started working on my second suit of armor a couple of months ago and wanted to share my progress so far.

The armor is based off of the armor customization in Halo 3 from the Master Chief Collection. A combination of Halo 3 Recon upper body, and Halo 3 ODST legs.

The first full test fit of the armor once it was all done printing with my first Recon helmet I printed.

I plan on doing a lot more of the next couple of months. I still do not have a good under suit or a harness to mount all of the armor to. I will also be making some props to go with it like the Halo 3 AR and Magnum
I’ve been following your build on insta, love the work! Colors came out super clean and the weathering just tops it off. Great job!

How do you plan to do your under suit/ attach all the parts? I’ve found this to be the most difficult for most cosplayers.
I have no idea yet lol. I think I might do buckles and snaps to attach the parts to the under suit but I want to make an accurate Gen 2 under suit so I have to figure that out first

I decided to redo the strapping on my thighs to make them fit a bit better.

I also finished most of the major pieces of the suit so I decided to suit up and take deployment pictures.

I’m not trying to get tied 3 with this first attempt I’m mostly just trying to get my number and continue to work on the suit later.

I still need to adjust a few areas and get a proper undersuit made. I have shorter legs so I noticed that the back plate doesn’t sit close enough to wear it should so I will need to figure that out as well

Build is looking great!
