Well I was gona hold off posting anything till everything was done but i couldnt wait.



The back story

(why I did this)



About 2 1/2 weeks ago, ME and my friend from work (at best buy) were talking to my manager about the madden release and what we could do for the customers. Then we started talking about what was the next midnight release, which we came to find out for sure it will be HALO 3:ODST. So we started talking about what we could do and me and my friend told my manager it would be cool to dress up like spartans for it. She was so in to us doing it, she said that we could. So thats when I started to do the ODST armor.



The Plan



I started looking at this website, bungie and many other places to find a quick and easy way to do this. eBay was the fist look and wouldnt you know it 2 helmets up for sale, a Recon one by "herphalfwayhouse" makes a lot of helmets, and a odst cast. I missed the recon but i got the odst one.



In the limited time i had and in looking at your forums i didnt have the time to make one like most of you make them. So i have compromised on a lot of things to make the armor.



ODST Helmet - ($113)

Vest - ebay ($50)

Backpack - my store ($20)

little league catcher shine guards - Sports authority ($44)

Forearm guards/ Nike soccer Shine guards - Sports authority ($8)

Knee & elbow pads - target ($20)

MP7 airsoft AEG - Sports authority ($140)

P30 eletric airsoft pistol - Sports authority ($40)

Toy guns for the lasers ($12)

Glove ($8), Long sleeve black shirt ($15), Art supply[paint/visor/wood/glue] (about $50)

hey rube, unless this is your ebay user name "vitienrgylp". I figured it might be you but i saw a thread not to long ago discussing someone making casts from it.



one of the bids seemed a little sketch. unless if you can bid anonomysly, i saw a bidder bid consecutivley almost 3 times after out bidding another guy.



Btw man, haha you have a nice plan laid out! wish i could work as fast

wow great modifications for your weapons but you might want to try cutting the <smg length down its supose to be a little smallerm> <the back extention bars, theres three bars> <, and just add another piece around the silencer> < and the gun just use a power tool to cut out a few slots> then you will be equiped for battle trooper!

Im not going to cut the smg/mp7 its a $140 airsoft gun. A Note both guns work with the addons the smg/mp7 silencer though not silent shoots straight. The pistol blows-back with the front silencer on, shoots too, and is removable.



Im in Pembroke Pines. The helmet is not from herphalfwayhouse (wanted his recon though), it was vitienrgylp.



Small update all armor painted, visor painted, chestplate still ongoing(need to figure out how to secure it and put together/painting without warping.

Tiny update leg rig for pistol kinda works, can get hung up but no biggy. I finally put everything on, the shoulders pads and elbow pads are a little tight but it helps keep them up on my shoulders, the chest plate is about 2 inchs too wide so i have to keep my arms out alittle, also i tried to get the helmet to work with my glasses but a no go, so i can see but everything is a blur. On the bright side is doesnt get that hot thought it would but not so much.



Heres a blurry pic. Mind the tan pants i just got out of work and was too lazy to put on the black pants.

Will post more on the 22nd when the game comes out at my store.
 
Nice ODST build. What store do you work at? My Manager at my store wants me to wear the Marine armor I got from Adam a while back. Not sure If I want too since it's a marine not ODST lol.
