close up complete

Sarge Ref

Helmet WiP

Chest WiP



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 ?

Sutekhian posted on 22 July, 2010 - 02:09
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

@Codename: Thanks man! Just doing what I can! @Bambi: heheh thanks, so nearly there! I'd love to run into a Caboose, if any of my mates build I'm going to try and persuade them... @Sachi: Thankyew, just lots and lots of time spent folding! Looks rougher in person I feel ;)

Your welcome ~ also can i ask what you used to make this? also if you run into Caboose, i wont be far behind you haha~! Still find this epic. Your progress gets better and better everytime i look.

Sutekhian posted on 30 July, 2010 - 00:48
@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

heheheh, got to love Sarge! Glad to hear! And thanks! Last few touches to put on this week and I'll be out around Edinburgh :) Your ODST stuff was cool, what happened to it?

Detective Excel posted on 10 August, 2010 - 11:28
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;

Sutekhian posted on 10 August, 2010 - 17:03
Awww darn! Ach well if you do Caboose we should do a double act ;)

Sutekhian posted on 14 August, 2010 - 09:20
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 ;)

MasterJh117 posted on 16 August, 2010 - 01:55
That guy lent you a dirk to make the fight "fairer"? :P Any Spartan could kill that man with their bare hands! :P Finished costume looks awesome :)
