    Found this site and immediately signed up after I started building my Halo armor. Incredibly helpful.

    Just joined because I want to get into prop building. This site is a great place for finding all sorts of resources. What is the record for most people online at one time now?

    My husband found it, after we finished putting together my Agent Tex armour. Lots of great info here, I wish we would have found it sooner.

    Bing search results for 3d printed Master Chief Armor. I was in the process of making plans for what I wanted to build and came across the 405th. Very thankful to have found this treasure trove of knowledge and the great people who represent it

    I was trying to figure out how to make my own armor and I saw a lot of 405th when I was doing research on how to make it, mostly on youtube

    Nice story and I Know you are new and may not know but just a friendly reminder... Try not to necropost. This thread is over a year old

    To be fair though, the thread was started almost 10 years ago and seeing how people stumble across the 405th is definitely useful.

    If you say it is useful you must be right.
    So I might as well put in a story.
    I found it while I was working on my 3d costume. My costumes back then we're all free hand and not very good. Now that I've found it I would like to think I have improved.

    Leiutenant Jaku - It's mostly dead build threads that are a concern. Stuff like this or tutorials never die.

    I found the site after googling "real halo spartan" on google images and @davidduffy's awesome photoshoot in the snow came up.

    Oooohh...I found the 405th when I was looking to make a homemade costume for the first time a few years ago. So, I decided to make some MC armor, and stumbled upon an image of Mr skywalker and his foam Halo 4 MC armor. That pretty much kickstarted my cosplaying journey.

    I started out with this ugly duckling:

    and am currently sitting with much better props and cosplays:

    So glad I got into this hobby, I've done lots of cool stuff and met lots of cool people along the way.

    I don't remember when I first found the 405th.. Probably back when indy mogul posted his vid on halo armor (holy 9 yrs ago)... I joined after going to CCEE and going to the 405th panel in 2016. It was a long time coming.

    I found the 405th by accident, made an account, forgot about it for a year and then actually started making costumes. Two and a half years down the road, this is probably my third most visited site aside from Reddit and Facebook.

    I can't recall if I told this story before.....My son was at a friend's house and played HALO and was wow-ed by the armor and asked if I could make a costume like that for Purim (Jewish version of Halloween). All my research lead me to here. A few months later IMG-20160323-01209.jpg he had a low rez suit. Not my best work.....but not my last.

    Let me see... How did I find this site. I follow a whole wack of people on Instagram. Started seeing all the sweet cosplay. Started watching YouTube vids of cosplay compilations from different cons like SDCC, DragonCon, NYCC and and some local stuff like Anime North and Toronto FanExpo. After testing the waters with a couple of small foam props and my son's Saiyan warrior armour, I wanted to build my own cosplay and thought it would be cool to do something from Halo. Did a Google search for templates and everything pointed here. So here I am. Almost a year later. Now I've built a Spartan suit for my son, a few weapon props and I am procrastinating on my ODST armour at this point. Oh, I've also helped convince Dirtdives that he needs a wall put up to protect him from the Canadian regiment.
  18. Dirtdives


    Convince?.......Nah, you just keep proving my point of the necessity of the wall. No convincing needing.

    Lately i have been collection some halo models. I love to paint them and look at them. I also have the halo 3 master-chief helmet (way too small to fit mind you). But i also like the idea of having some props like the guns. I like to collect those things and now i want to make it myself, including a set of ODST Armour.

    so while googling at work for some info i stumbled upon some references about the 405th. so i decided to use this chance and register to get access to a helpful community and maybe one day meet others at a convention
