Every one I cast looks better than the one before it. Even so, I need a new project soon. Limited run of halo reach eva helmets coming soon, stay tuned... #halo #cosplay #helmet #armor #microsoft #343i #405th #therpf #factionfx

@user @user I like it

@user Grats to all

@user Cool guys don't look at explosions, they just turn around and walk away! I have a DM coming your way with some news ;)

Another one for Way Back Wednesday. 
First suit up in my Halo3 MK6 armour. Many a lesson learnt from my first build.
-Scale is important (The chest and helm could be smaller)
-EVA the body and pepakura/fibreglass the helmet for accuracy. (Did this the old school 405th way full fibre glass. Messy,costly and uncomfortable)
-Detailing. This bad boy could be 10x better if it had more fine details on it.

@user Love this.. Seriously.

@user @user Haha glad you dig it. As I said Im not entirely happy with it. Would love to go back in time and talk some sense into old me.

@user Cool

@user You are epic and I am going to start soon. I have printed out pepurakura (I don't know how to spell it) and cut out the pieces for a mark 5 helmet. Any recommendations? (By the way you inspired me and @user @user @user did too.

@user @user Okay pepakura top tips. 1.Use a drip of superglue not hot glue to put your pieces together. 2.Make sure your card stock is ridged enough. 3.A ruler is your best friend. 4.Take your time and enjoy it!!

@user @user epic! Thanks bro! By the way this might be stupid and I think I know it but what is a card stock πŸ˜‚

@user @user Card stock is basically thick paper.

Way back Wednesday. One Mk6 leg in paper. The days before I knew what EVA foam was. Circa 2010.

@user What's pepakura like to work with? I've never used it before

@user @user Pepakura is great. Fun to do too. I do however use it differently now. I use the pepakura to mock up a piece of armour to see the fit what templates I need to make that particular piece. Then I transfer the shapes to EVA. So Im basically using pep for templating. However my latest chest piece is all freehand. The old school way is to resin and glass the pepakura. But f**k that noise. Resin is a messy and time consuming process... the only thing Id pep/resin now is the helmet because has to look right. You cant get away with a wobbily or skewed helmet..

@user Ah, resin. My old enemy. I was going to use it to make an N7 breather helmet for London but I ran out of time...

So figured a way to get inspired again while inspiring others at the same time...is to go all out and finally start getting the ball rolling with the faction. I may call upon you to see if you are interested in being a member so look out for that.

@user It's hard to find motivation to build! Holy crap I've also had that problem. But hey, when you do build something, it turns out wicked, keep at it bro :) @user

@user Life will do that. Stay positive 😁

@user Oh ya, plus this suit is so sick. Kind of jealous of the helmet! @user

@user I know exactly watcha mean I want to but I don't wanna do the work to do it but then I end up doing it and it pays off!

@user Have you ever got in trouble be the authorities for wearing that in public?

@user @user I have only worn it once. And I think London cops are a lot more used to seeimg crazy shizzle.

@user Oh ok lol. I feel like if I wore my ODST someone would call the cops.

@user How expensive was it to make the suit?

@user @user.coopa Okay I will actually work this out ... So Resin/fiberglass kit Β£40, Paint Β£60, Tools in general Β£120 and 80% of the foam was free as its recycled. Same goes with visor that was throw away perspex from work. The gun was probably around Β£40 worth of materials and paint. Β£260 ($420US) all up. But that cost is spread over a year so $35 per month. Quite a cheap #hobby really

@user Duuuuuuude @user
