I want to clear something up since I keep getting asked over and over. NO I do NOT use pepakura for my armors. Everything is scratch built, meaning I just look at reference pictures and create the armor by sight according to my body measurements. My helmets are pepped by @demonicxxx , he ships it to me in catdstock form....then I go through the process of of hardening and detailing the helmet. So for those who have asked, lol here's the answer. I think you have so much more freedom when doing a scratch build, you can completely skip the pepakura step and make your armor exactly how you want. #halo #halo4 #405th #cosplay #haloarmor #gaming #art #igers #instagood #instadaily #photooftheday

shockwave_studios @jessealianza ppsshh me famous😞 dude you have more followers than me...YOUR famous πŸ™ŒπŸ™πŸ™ŒπŸ™

Compiling all my goby pics for the next build. I've seen people do this similar armor that looks amazing but man they dont even nearly get all the details that are shown.  Shoot even my last armor.... sure it may not be as seamless as some others but I put WWAAAAAAYYY more detail in my armors that some halo cosplayers dont even bother attempting. Lets see how detailed I can get with this next build 😎 #halo #halo4 #haloscreenshot #goby #405th #propbuilder #gaming #art #cosplay #igers #instadaily #instagood #stoprushingyourshitanddoitright

shockwave_studios @__n3bulascreenshots__ yup. Well just the bicep pieces are scout.

shockwave_studios @spartanxda its a mix. Recon helmet, CIO torso, Scout shoulders, forearms Twin-plated, legs Outer-plated, red vosor.

spartanxda Can't wait to see ur helmer dude πŸ‘

blackiechan1570 @tigershockeyguy18 check ur DMS

shockwave_studios @spartanxda oh I already posted it. I didnt make this one. Bought it from #impactprops

spartanxda Oh ok that's cool

whereisdanielle So darn excited!!!

Oh man I would love to make the Scout armor. Still one of my favorite 😍😍😎 #halo #halo4 #405th #gaming #cosplay #igers #instadaily #instagood

bradwolter I know someone who's making it...

shockwave_studios @bradwolter so do I 😎

metalmax420 You should do one of the DLC armor sets @shockwave_creations

bradwolter I'm doing a fiberglass/foam hybrid

groxrocker219 Your face is hysterical. x'D πŸ˜‚

uratz You're using pep files right? I have a way to 3D print out pep files but need some work

shockwave_studios @uratz no I dont pep any part of my armor. Its all scratch builds. The helmets are the only thing pepped. Hmmm you can do that!? Awesome. Man I would love to commission you for a helmet πŸ˜†

uratz @shockwave_creations I'll probably be doing my own Spartans now just have to find time to finish my masks and other projects people paid me for.

Sooo I thought about it, I thought about it and thought about it some more... I'm not selling my costumes. I love them way too much and afraid they will go to a home where they'll get neglected. SO!! Im keeping them lol. FREE CONVENTION THIS WEEKEND IN MIAMI (Miami Hurricon) BE THERE!! #halo #halo4 #haloarmor #405th #343i #cosplay #costume #propbuilder #igers #instagood #instadaily #photooftheday

oh_kadub I thought you were doing full time costume making?

shockwave_studios @oh_kadub well i tried but couldn't. No one was willing to pay or purchase what I was asking for and I wasn't willing to go down in price because I just couldnt. So I got another job and ill just continue to keep it a hobby. No morr commissions, no more taking orders, im done with all that.

halotheater c: you can send me ur deadeye helmet! πŸ’œ I still need one! XD lol jk.

shockwave_studios @halotheater eventually one day you will get one πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ I still need to get it molded so I can make copies of it.

roshprops No shame in not being able to live off costuming- there's really only a couple guys that can do it, and it just relies completely on commissions. If rather enjoy my hobby, and make my money at work

halotheater Sweet! (; πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ @shockwave_creations

shockwave_studios @roshprops yeah man I was waaaayyy to optimistic. Well no big deal, I always felt like if this because a job of some sort I wouldnt really love it as much amymore. Atleast we can be selfish and just make stuff for ouraelves now lol 😈

ghostiemetalhead @shockwave_creations Wait are you going this weekend?

So eventually i'd like to start my own Halo cosplay group. I've come to terms that I will most likely not be inducted into any other groups, SO!... why not start my own lol. Im in no way trying to compete with anyone or anything like that. Just want to put a group of kickass cosplayers that when we show up at cons, you can hear people in the backround ,

Lol corny but still I think it would be cool. Then we can do charities, community outings and much more stuff. What do you guys think, is this a lame idea or should we go for it?

kimberly_maynard Ik πŸ˜” πŸ˜›

shockwave_studios @fitifyshay um hellz yeah πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜

apexpropstudios I would like to join !

droidbait Same!! I have a bunch of costumes, including a reach Spartan.

sr_uriah Invite please! Lol 😁😁😁

patrick_moorhead Soon as I finish my suit, I'm down to join if you want!

sataniceclipse I would. But I'm working on a Dead Space suit right now.

robflo17 But you are sooooo far from me. :(

Well I could be a little happier with the results, it only took me 2 hours to make it from start to finish, so I guess I can't be happier in that regard. #halo #haloreach #405th

spartangrl117 @barnacosplayers why does it say your Spartangrl117? Congrads btw I'm just a little confused

barnacosplayers @spartangrl117 it isn't spartangrl117, it's spartangirl117, it was the first name that came to my mind xD

salmon_maniac you look fucking awesome

danisnothigh Varnish and a visor,amd I'm done.

Well it ain't much, but it's progress- security and operator shoulders done- now to build a knife, some forearms, and a chest. If only my plastic would show up so I could finish that visor... #halo #haloarmor #haloreach #343i #bungie #cosplay #costuming #405th #diy

collinge_lacy Dude, are you making Emile's armor? Looks like security and operator shoulders!

roshprops @collinge_lacy I am in fact, that's why I'm fighting with my vac former so hard to make the visor for his helmet! I have 6 weeks until con, so I'm not too bad as far as progress goes.

collinge_lacy You'll have to let me know how that visor goes, I really need to make or buy a vac former so I can make an ODST visor I can't wait to see it!

roshprops @collinge_lacy stony props sell them for 30 or so bucks, I'm about 300 into a vac former so far- I'd suggest buying one from stony.

collinge_lacy Sweet! Thanks!

sketchschmidt Nice bro !!

halo_plus That's awesome!

whereisdanielle It's beautiful

Ok so since Andrew Cooks name came up in questiom again I figured id repost this for new followers who don't know. @dafrontlinetrooper is an extremely popular prop builder that has been a huge inspiration in my builds. I fell in love with his Forerunner Vanquish LMG (his own desing) and tried replicating it to the best of my ability. And here's what ended up taking shape 😎 made this almost 2 years ago now and still one of my favorite guns to date πŸ™Œ#halo #halo4 #propgun #405th #andrewcook #dafrontlinetrooper #gaming #cosplay #igers #photooftheday

Didn't realize I still had this pic lol. When I first started building 3 years ago I knew I always wanted an assault rifle.  Could never afford to pay someone to make it so I tried my luck on making one myself. Maybe I should attempt a rebuild see how it comes out this time 😎 #halo #halo3 #assaultrifle #masterchief #405th #props #foamgun #gaming #art #igers #instagood #instadaily #photooftheday

halo_is_amazing @dasianinvasian he's also on YouTube

ahm_art @dasianinvasian I've made a few halo props of my own. My halo magnum cost me less that $5 to make.

shockwave_studios @halo_is_amazing dont know him personally but extremely familiar with all his work. If you remember is Vanquish LMG gun, I tried replicating it and he posted it on his facebook page. Needless to say I was insanely excited lol.

shockwave_studios @ahm_art oh yeah iys super cheap to make. Btw your plasma pistol is effin awesome πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

shockwave_studios @aurum_serenus aw thanks hun πŸ˜‰ of course now I look at the gun differently but MAN lol I was so proud when I made it.

kingdomspartans Wow great job I wish I was good at drawing and building XD -LION

apexpropstudios Wow! Big jump! Still pretty good for your first try!

ahm_art Thanks a ton a man! It really means a lot. Im gonna do a battle rifle next. I just need more time...
