Description
Using Pepakura designer to help make this, it's first made out of paper then resined and fibreglassed for strenghtening. I ended up using an old file of Pepakura which is why the parts aren't so detailed, however I'm using some "hack 'n' slash" to spruce it up a bit.

This should be done for the Saturday for London Expo 2010, I better book a hotel ^^:

*Looks at undersuit* Are you mad man?! I thought I was gonna boil in my horribly unbreatheable undersuit, but in that I hope you're installing some fans in that rather beautiful armour! O-o

P.S. The costume is looking rather wuvwy.

Awww, dude, i saw you at Expo. I was the Psycho from Borderlands who got a picture with you and some ODSTs (i was cutting off an ODST's head). Your costume was super freaking awesome. Can i just ask: Where did you get your underarmour from? I'm looking for some for my Recon armor but i'm not too sure where to look (and yours looks perfect so i may have to use that).

Cheers and brilliant job on the armour

Thanks very much, it means a lot. Its a shame within the first hour of Expo I was glomped by some Naruto cosplayer and many parts ended up cracked. In the end I just left the whole suit at the hotel ^^:.

Will redo better than ever sometime :D

Fitting the Suit (Posted 25th May 2010)

Well I've kind of figured out a way to put the suit on and make it all stable, but its like a step-by-step puzzle ^^:. Pieces have to be put on in a specific order and some parts will be fiddly ^^;.

Order of putting on:
COD belt, Thighs, loop suspenders through COD piece, attach suspender clips to rear of thighs. Shins (may use a strip of velcro to link the tighs and shins). Boots, then stick covers on. Shoulders, Chest-piece (need help lol), Gauntlets, handplates and then finally someone needs to put my helmet on for me XDD.

Change of Plans (Posted 21st April 2010)

Decided not to call this one Master Chief since I'm using a darker shade of Green plus I altered the visor to look different. So he shall be a regular Spartan soldier. Spartan - 7734!

Letting you guys know I'm on the ball

Sizing Tutorial (Posted 28th March 2010)

Well I'm not sure if people knew, but there was this guy on Youtube called Abrant3 who did fantastic video tutorials of Halo armour, unfortunately he's removed his videos for some strange reason. However, I have managed to track him down on 405th.com and found a nifty sizing tutorial of his. This is built for average body sizes and requires you entire height in cm's:
