Have you built/made a costume before?:
I've made armor in the past, but even though it was made relatively well, but you could tell something wasn't quite right.
After 7 years that armor doesn't fit me anymore, many parts of it, not only because I changed the look completely.
This time knowing 3D and having more experience also with 3D printers I wanted to do something well done and the advice is definitely very useful.
I hope to get lots of suggestions and help, for the whole semi-realistic coloring part.

1. I tell the truth to people's faces and many times people can't stand me or don't understand me.

4. I advocate for the Dark Side of the Force and own a sith red sword. I own 2 Red swords and one Yellow sword. (just to make my dad happy)
5. I can't stand people who are unhelpful or have limitations, especially with me.
6. I belong to the LGBT+ community
7.I'm German and Italian, I got the best parts of both.... or maybe not.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. (Arthur c. Clarke)

Hi Everyone,

I've been looking into building a foam armor for a few years now. I've watched a lot of YouTube videos and purchased the materials. But I'm busy with my other hobbies (EUC) and very lazy, so I got no where with the build. I purchased a used armor online and it needs work. I'll be modifying the plastic pieces to work with my riding gear, which is already very similar to the protected areas as a Halo armor (minus projectile protection). I couldn't use the Mandalorian or the Stormtrooper armor because those helmet designs limits the field of view severely while riding my EUC at 14 to 35 mph. Going to spray paint my EUC to match UNSC color scheme.

Oops... I didn't read

Hi everyone! I've been watching the 405th for many years now and have always been an aspiring Halo Cosplayer. I have stuck with Halo since CE and will for a long time. I'm based in Seattle and currently working on a full Infinite Mk.VII suit so later on don't be shy if you see me at any Cons! I've attached a picture of my cosplay in its current state and hope to finish it this year.

The suit is made with a combination of cardboard and foam to maximize flexibility while maintaining rigidity depending on the area. While the suit is made of soft materials I am looking into different options for hardening so you can see my work for many years to come.

What do you hope to learn here?: I'm looking to establish myself in this amazing community as I've watched pretty much all the videos on Youtube about 405th at Cons and hope to be a part of you all and be friends
Have you built/made a costume before?: Only helmets before. I've made two ODST helmets out of foam and they were rough but here I am!
