    So what's up guys, been here for some time but I haven't really been posting anything. So this is my first thread and I'll be sharing my build on the master chief from halo 4/5. I've actually been working on this for some time so I have learned A LOT about proportions/scaling, body types, materials, methods, and many more to make the BEST MASTER CHIEF COSTUME POSSIBLE!! haha
    I also have been making plans on making an actual suit, and I am currently working on an exoskeleton that can give added strength and mobility!

    Just a little thing about me, I really love Halo and it has inspired me to use my talents to make a real one, hopefully can someday be used in the military, but for now it's all for fun. I also love sports, animals, other games, and anything engineering. ENJOY MY JOURNEY!!!! IMG_5350.JPG IMG_5620.JPG IMG_5696.JPG IMG_5832.JPG IMG_6732.JPG

    Thank you so much man! Was actually a little difficult, because after a few months I would gain more weight and grow taller. I'm currently re-doing some parts since I out grew em hahaha

    I'll be posting some more stuff tomorrow about proportions on the suit, hope it will help people understand how chief's suit is built around him.

    I was also thinking if I do get enough people to see my work, I would like to know if you guys would want me to make another thread about proportions for Master Chief's armor in particular!

    Right now I am starting with the helmet and using pepakura to build it. This is the file I have for the helmet. The link is here: Halo 4 - MJOLNIR GEN2 - Mark VI Master Chief Is this the one you used since on the back of the helmet chief has a circle with a line in it, but in the file it doesn't have the line only the circle, is that something you have to add on your own. PS what material did you use for the chest? Thanks, Haloshark

    Unbelievable work, nice. and I would use EVA foam for the chest but I think you can use bondo and resin, or even sculpt it using clay. The possibilities are endless. I wouldn't worry about the circle and line seeing that you can add it yourself or even free hand it.

    Thanks for the advice agentflorida, however I did not make the suit MasterChief7117 did. Also how would I be able to use EVA foam for the chest and other body parts? Would I sculpt EVA foam into the body parts? Or is there another way to make a chest piece in EVA foam? Thanks, Haloshark

    1.Yep I'm using the same file, and I'm planning to add those tiny details by using bondo.

    2.The material I used for the chest is the same material I'm using for all, it's cardstock. Then I fiberglass it to make it stronger.

    3. Yes you can use eva foam, infact for all the pieces. There are foam files for the armor that you can use for templates. But I personally don't like them since they lose a lot of detail.

    Use pepakura to print out the parts on cardstock in 2d. Then trace the pieces on EVA foam and cut them out.

    Then fit pieces together and glue them together.

    It's fine man, we're all helping hands here. I'm happy to have people share their stuff here ^^

    I had no intention of sharing this due to it being defective or incorrect. I used the wrong type of foam that is very thin. I saw no reason to post a failed project.
     
  22. agentflorida

    agentflorida

    Well I originally had no intention. But I wanted Haloshark to have a example or a idea of how it works.

    Thanks agentflordia and MasterChief7117, do you know where I can get the armor templates for the EVA foam, also how did you make the shape of the armor, did you sculpt it?

    I don't know what armor templates are but I think it means like the model. In the armory there are files for many armors. You download them and open them using either Pepakura Viewer, or Pepakura designer. You can edit the size of the model to fit you in designer and then print out the model in 2 dimensional pieces and then cut out those pieces and them trace them on the foam and then cut the foam out and fold them and assemble them in 3D. I think that is how that works. I'm going to recieve some foam today and try it out. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Cutting the pieces and assembling them can take a long time however.
