I have watched so many YouTube videos and read things on here... but i can’t figure out how to get the templets so i can download them or print them off.. can anyone help me figure out what the heck I’m doing? Please and thank you

    it its the PDO files, you're gonna need a piece of software called pepakura. Its free to use, but you can't edit or save the files until you purchase the software.

    So the screen shot your using is form Halo 3 on the foundry map. Where if i remember correctly Tex wrecks everyone their and hits griff in the groin several times in an epic fight. Tee first thing i would recommend is to download pepakura 3d like others have mentioned. you can get a free version online that doesnt let you save but you can still work on stuff and print it. And tex always wore the basic Mk6 Armour that the chief wears in the campaign. So you would go to the armory tab at the top and on the left click halo 3. Then UNSC then get the proper file for the Armour you want. Halo 3 - MJOLNIR Mark VI - Standard HD or this link will take you where you want to go. From their just scale up the pep file to your body size. Print out the part you want to start on with the edges labeled and the proper paper settings applied. Their are a bunch of tutorials for this on youtube or google or even here. Post pics ask questions often the more active you are the more answers and advice you will get.

    Start by making a bunch of things out of paper, don't worry about getting scaling down Just yet. The reason for that is so you know what to do and how to do it later on.

    Once you've figured out how to assemble the parts, try messing around with the scaling. Make them BIG! make them small. THEN when you've got a basic handle on scaling, try to get the scale correct.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, 405th.com is the right place to come, but it's a crock pot, not a microwave. It takes time. As a result of that time you spent, you get a quality, custom made costume or prop. Not a cheap imitation. Totally worth it. And this forum is amazing for inspiration, resources, friends, and building tips.

    P.S., if you live in the area (Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Wyoming, or Colorado) join the mountain regiment. We're pretty much the best since ever and are totally bomb.

    ... if you don't, then second best is ok, too! :p (jk, the other regiments are awesome, I never would seriously put them down.)

    I mean, that's a funny question on it's own. It depends on how professional you want to go. The suits they have in the 343i lobby are valued at around $1.2M for each Locke and the Chief.

    Some other ones that are also made by professionals are in the realm of $700 but are more of a "one size fits most" kind of deal.

    If you're looking for a commission of a costume you'll likely be looking at around several thousand dollars but have a size built to your specifications, colours and customization.

    If you're after that exact Ironman suit from your dsdsdas.png, they also make a Halo 4 Chief.

    You likely won't find too many H3 variants outside of the Master Chief or ODSTs in the wild though because the game is a bit older which leaves those to specialists and one offs which are usually much more expensive if you want high quality.

    H3odst , the behavior you are exhibiting in this thread, posting multiple times within a few minutes of each post, all with out another member responding to you or making another post, is considered "Spamming" or "Spam Posting," and is seen as extremely poor "Internet Etiquette" and is frowned upon around here.

    Additionally, you are posting in a thread that is over 6 months old, and your post has nothing to do with the topic of this thread. Posting an Off Topic response to a thread is also considered "Spam Posting."

    I am going to strongly urge you in the future to much more carefully consider and think about what you are posting and where.
