#405th

Started working on my next project, a custom Halo 4 Spartan commission.  Building from scratch, no templates, from EVA foam.  So far, over the course of one day, I made the basic body of the Orbital torso and started adding a few details.  #halo #halocostume #haloreplica #haloarmor #haloprops #halo4 #halocosplay #armorbuilding #spartan #propreplicas #propbuilding #405th #therpf #cosplay #costumes #unsc #geek #gamer #xbox #videogames #instagood #igers #photooftheday #megacon #floridasupercon

@user Bad ass, damn Eva foam haha

@user Lovely!

@user @user how do u cut such exact angles with ur foam?

@user @user quickly and carefully. I use a hot knife with xacto z series blades and a stainless steel ruler as a straight edge.

@user Looking good man!

@user Looking badass as usual!

@user Sick as hell! Lol

@user @user could you try making spi armor? (Semi powered infiltration armor) that the Spartan III's wore?

Since the end of the year is coming soon. Here's a quick glimpse from this years work. 4 armors made, was between jobs, financial issues, social anxiety, this and that......and was still building even when I was flat broke 😎. Music from Another Black Day.....old band I used to play guitar in, but when I played with them we were called From The Ashes....that was a lifetime ago, I'll leave that for another day lol. Thanks to everyone's support, all your feedback and hopefully soon I'll get off my lazy ass and make some more stuff. #halo #halo4 #cosplay #costumearmor #405th #haloarmor #halocostume #instagood #igers #instadaily #instadumb #photooftheday #southernregiment

@user Grats on winning big @user

@user Soooo how many chicks hit on you at these things? Lol

@user @user thanks man.

@user @user not many at all lol. Unfortunately I don't get to meet many girls that are fans of Halo 😣. Sucks haha.

@user Bro... let me do the talking and we'll have them living halo in no time.

@user Lol

Quick video I found of @user , @user and myself at last weekend.

@user @user yeah the vibe is pretty lame and just....eh I dunno its not great at all. Believe me if I had to pay, I woulf not even step foot in that door...that is if I knew before hand how it was gonna be....but you never really know unfortunately until you've purchased your ticket and are in the door.

@user My friend and I brought in manga figures and DVDs to trade in towards the admission so that was cool. It had everything but It might just need a couple of more years to put the presence of a con there. If that makes sense lol

@user This is badass. If you ever want an apprentice you should let me know.

@user How much would be a Halo 4 oceanic helm cost?

@user @user not sure, any helmet would be expensive really. If you want an iceanic helmet....go to www.etsy.com and search Halo helmet. You see an Oceanic helmet for sale.

@user @user alright thanks!

@user Lol i had that tv

@user πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

@user U should build forerunner armor or like prefect

@user Grunt costume

@user Grunt costume for the win!

@user A grunt costume would be hilarious but its all up to you man dont let me persuade you---Connor

@user You would have to put the grunt costume on a kid because they're like 5 4

@user How'd you make the floating pieces?

@user You should try to make an elite costume

@user Grunt or hunter :D

For anyone interested,  @user is selling his Master Chief costume. Price is listed in the photo. Contact him direct of you would like to inquire about it/serious buyers only. This is probably one of the most screen accurate MC armors around and I can honestly say it's my favorite one out there. #halo #halo4 #cosplay #costumearmor #405th #haloarmor #halocostume #instagood #igers #instadaily #instadumb #photooftheday #southernregiment #masterchief #forsale #halospartan

@user @user and I rockin the stage at #animatemiami . Even though we didn't win anything.......the crowds reaction told us we did. I would rather have the audience roar like they did (and I mean it was insane), and win nothing. As opposed to winning first place and hearing crickets. That's how the night went down, which is fine because at the end of the day WE are who they'll remember 😎. #halo #halo4 #cosplay #costumearmor #405th #haloarmor #halocostume #instagood #igers #instadaily #instadumb #photooftheday #southernregiment

See you all at #chibipa this weekend. Davie florida, probably one of the coolest cons locally.....most of my friends I've gotta to know there more so than other cons. Just something about it that is more up and personal which I like because it gives you the opportunity to really get to know one another. Best in show last year....which means.....I GET IN FOR FREE BABY!!!!!! #halo #halo4 #cosplay #costumearmor #405th #haloarmor #halocostume #instagood #igers #instadaily #instadumb #photooftheday #southernregiment

@user @user

@user I didn't realize there was a con this weekend! Davie would have been perfect but sadly I work all weekend. I'll have to remember for next year. I would have loved to see your costume in person, great work!

@user How much does it cost to get in? Ill be in florida this weekend

@user @user for one day I think its like 25 bucks. Not sure what the weekend cost is for 3 days.

@user Ok. Where in florida is it? Ill be down there for a few days so i might need something to do.

@user @user heres the address: Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port Hotel 1825 Griffin Rd. Dania Beach, FL 33004

@user So bad ass how do you guys make that armor I've always wanted to make one @user

Tagged by the amazing @user to show my favorite costume 😊. I would have to say it's without a doubt my first H4 armor that I made entirely myself. The gun was a replicated after the Andrew Cooks Forerunner Vanquish LMG. With this armor I've won many costume competitions and even was able to win 2nd place at AnimateMiami earlier this year during the filming of Heroes of Cosplay. After a while, I've noticed the costuming community here in South Florida become more and more conceded and all cons being over run by a small group of friends that I want no part of....and my goal from here on is to out do this group of

To Dragoncon 2015....here I go.....AND the 405th Southern Regiment will be there as well. HOORAH!! I tag... @user and @user to show your favorite Costume Armor/Prop.

@user Wish you weren't on the opposite side of the country!!! I'd would looooove for you to make an appearance at my gaming center.

@user How would I measure out iron man parts for my 5' 11" frame I'm curious is all

@user @user that eould be pretty badass 😎

@user @user that I dunno. Iron man armor is alot different than halo and I build my armor according to my own body measurements just by sight...so its hard to say.

@user I am starting small with the shoes u put out amazing work that's y I askex

@user @user

@user Preach on bro!

@user Fuck yea!

ODST helmet 2.0 Left: original scaling to a 7-8 ft spartan. Pep file was left untouched.  Right: scaled to a 5'3

ODST helmet 2.0 Left: original scaling to a 7-8 ft spartan. Pep file was left untouched. Right: scaled to a 5'3" spartan (me), pep file reduced by 10%. .................................................................................................... The difference is very noticeable when I wore it. Definitely a better overall fit. Too bad I won't be able to start the resin, glass, and bondo phase anytime soon. This 20-30 degree weather doesn't work well with the curing.

@user @user could a person like you get build a suit for a person like me?

@user Sorry I don't do commissions. I don't have the time to commit to these projects esp with my final exams coming up. But go to 405th.com and snoop around. They have tons of tutorials and files so you can start your own. Really fun and satisfying knowing you built your own. @user

@user Those look great! It's crazy that so many people do a bad job at the pep stage. When I made mine using the same file by kirrou I didn't realize I should scale it down either so it came out pretty big like yours lol I've since done several other pep helmets outside of halo and know better

@user @user thanks. I think the original scaling is fine if you're taller than 5'10". if you're shorter, it just makes you look like a bobble head. Fits great, but you just look disproportion

Hey everyone, I need to make room for other projects and light a fire under my ass to start my own next suit so I've decided to sell my Halo 4/5 Master Chief suit.  I built it out of EVA foam, been wearing it for almost a year.  It has some regular wear and tear but its filly in tact.  Package includes Helmet, torso, biceps, shoulders, gloves, forearms, cod, butt, thighs, shins, knees, boots, and hooded cloak.  Lights in the helmet and fans in the torso.  Buyer pays shipping.  Asking $900 OBO.  #halo #halocostume #haloarmor #masterchief #halo4 #haloprops #halocosplay #spartan #cosplay #costume #armorbuilding #unsc #405th #therpf #cosplayarmor #supercon #megacon #palmcon #igers #instagood #photooftheday #awesome #propbuilding #propreplicas #haloreplica

@user Alright

@user @user do you have a website?

@user Not really @user , just here and Facebook. I should probably do that...

@user @user alright, I really love your work, its one of the best ive seen

@user Thanks!

@user @user anytime! Me and a friend of mine are huge halo fans& we were wondering how much for custom fitting?

@user @user DM for details, can't discuss out here in the comments...

@user @user

I couldn't contain my inner fan girl when watching the Halo 2 anniversary cut scenes! Everything looks amazing, particularly the Arbiter, being one of my favourite characters I'm so tempted to make this costume. It would be such a massive undertaking but definitely a dream project. Depending on budget and work space, I might attempt parts of this costume this/next year however I'm busy with smaller projects at the moment but I'm seriously considering this!! #halo #halo2 #halo2anniversary #halo3 #halo4 #halo5 #haloreach #halocosplay #haloarbiter #arbiter #elite #spartan #halospartan #343industries #Microsoft #405th #cosplay #armour #prosthetic #bungie

@user I might try to set up something so that my mouth and chin open the mandibles

@user @user Yes Elite buddies! XD Well the Elites in Halo Wars were just enormous, I think between 7 and 8 foot high is a good size for a comfortable, wearable suit. That's an interesting idea, although I was planning on having my head in the neck to give a little bit more height.

@user Oh no I was still gonna have my head down in the neck but there would be long strings/cords going to the mandibles.

@user @user Ah! It sounds like its going to be super fiddly to set that up xD I may end up making them so that they are posable instead of relying on movement.

@user @user well I got robbed of my $200 I was saving up for projects so I'm trying to find the cheapest alternatives that still look good

@user @user Same, materials are super expensive. Especially if you work with silicone, resin and latex. I usually spend between Β£250-Β£350 on a normal cosplay, I don't want to think about how much this one is going to cost xD

@user Hey if I can be an elite for a day I say it's worth it

@user @user Definitely! Its something I would love to causally walk down the street in xD
