Halo - Spartan HYO-005 - 2 by Hyokenseisou-Cosplay Halo - Spartan HYO-005 - 2 by Hyokenseisou-Cosplay
Just to everyone is aware, the helmet is NOT the EVA helmet, it's the Pilot helmet. The visor was HAND MOLDED using an oven and well.. hands. And because of the type of acrylic plastic we used, that was the best we could do with it. It is NOT vac-formed. The top of the visor IS a bit inaccurate, but other than the the rest is 100% accurate (with the exception of the back, which isn't finished)
HUGE thanks to my bf as well to managed to muscle his way into hand molding my visor for me

The left shoulder guard is the UA/Multi-threat shoulder. Rest of the armor is standard female spartan reach armor.
---------------------------------
HUGE thanks to my friend Ly (aka Pikminlink) for wearing my costume in order for me to take pics. Oddly enough, we are the EXACT size. XD

The method I used to make my armor is called pepakura. Please do a some research and reading and google it. I get asked WAYYYY too much on how, or what pepakura means. Google is your friend. Use and annoy that, not me....

Action shot! How did you get those knee pads to stay in place?

They have an elastic band that goes around back.

How well do they stay in place? I was under the impression that pads with bands like that tend to move around easily.

It stayed in place pretty decently well. Between the shin pieces and the thigh, it held it in place. A bit of velcro on the back of the knee piece and sewn on to the undersuit helped a bit too.

Pretty Amazing Pep work.
I do some myself, but Usually stick to helmets.

The Armor is EXTREMELY well done, and shows incredible detail.
I just have one question, if you could help me out: How much bondo did you use on the body parts, and if you didn't use it, did you use acrilic or another plastic?

Thanks for any help you can give. You seem like an amazing artist, and I am sure you'll succeed at whatever your future ventures are.

PS- I recognized the pilots helmet instantly. I've seen the vacuum forming it takes to make a Visor like that, and it seems like you nailed it. :) Keep up the GREAT work.

This is... an amazing job at papercraft. May I ask what type of material you used in general, ask you can use different things and whatever you used seems to look more durable than generic papers. And also if you sealed it with anything, etc. Sorry to bother you, otherwise.

It is far stronger than just paper. The base is paper, then there's at least (on each part) 3 layers of resin on the outside, 3 on the inside, 3-5 layers of fiberglass on the inside, and 3 layers of bondo on the outside (smoothed between each layer). So I could literally kick someone and THEY would get hurt, not me or my armor.
Typically armor like this is made starting with pepkaura, then heavily reenforced with such materials as resin, fiberglass, bondo, and/or rondo.

What a shame : <
That's a bit hard to make, I think..
I wag thinking that maybe I should give a try, but it was way too difficult to do that visor with my skills x<

But anyway! As I said, it would be cool to see more pictures of your Spartan armor, I hope that I will see soon more~

The helmet's faceplate should less curve and more come out at an angle... I dunno if you can tell what I mean...

Actually, the top should be more curved, but due to the type of acrylic plastic I hand molded it with, that was the best I could so. Other than the top, it's accurate.

It more or less is finished, just needs some black fabric in the back so it'll cover up the hair.
