Costume Information

Awards : D-Con first place masquerade

So I've been a fan of RvB for ages, loved playing Halo. Sarge just struck me as a rather fun character and when I came across the 405th I decided what the hell, I'll try building this!

Was worn for 5 hours solid while walking about 3-4 miles around Edinburgh city during the Fringe Festival.

Also worn for the release of Reach! At which point it ended up being trashed and needs a near full rebuild...

And it had the rebuild a bit, went out to D-Con 2011 with two others in Spartan/ODST gear and won first place at the masquerade with the other two :)

WOW! Amazing! ^^ kinda have question what are you using to make it D: i know have like paper/card template! but what do you put on after that to make it stronger O__O ?

Thanks! Well the initial frame is 200gsm card which I then painted with fiberglass resin, when that dried I lined the inside with fiberglass mat and resined that. Then on the bits I wanted smoothed I used car body filler

@Spicecake: Thanks!

@Sachi: It's a papercrafted suit, cardboard cut out and folded/glued in the shape of the game model. It's then re-inforced inside with fiberglass and some of the outside was coated with car body filler, sanded smooth with a mouse-sander then painted

Your ODST stuff was cool, what happened to it?

by Sutekhian on Tuesday, 10 August, 2010 - 01:02

Well my parents took it up for me and the other ODST'er, and we didn't really have the room to take it all back ourselves this time :/ so we had to chuck most of it, kept the helmets and a few small pieces just in case we want to re-do it though ^^;

Never know, I might try and make caboose one day xD;

Thanks Sachiko! To be honest up close it has little flawws that stand out a lot to me, the fold lines are visible in alot of it so I want the next to be much smoother. But then people down the street didn't seem to notice ;)

by Sutekhian on Saturday, 14 August, 2010 - 09:20

That guy lent you a dirk to make the fight "fairer"? :P Any Spartan could kill that man with their bare hands! :P
