This is my tutorial on how to make a Halo 4 Master Chief costume/cosplay. The main building material will be EVA foam and craft foam for details. The EVA foam can be bought almost at all home improvement stores and  the like. I will be using 1/4" EVA foam from a foam shop nearby. The craft foam can be found at Michaels, Ben Franklin and other craft stores.
The other materials/tools are
-A carpenters knife
-Hot glue & Glue gun
-Paper, pens, ruler etc.
-Spray paint-Krylon Italian Olive
-Small lights(led's or miniature christmas village spotlights that can be bought at miachels around christmas time.)

Step 1: Guide Pictures/ Objects

Instead of using pepakura, I made all the parts from scratch as I found out that pepakura is insanely complicated. Though pepakura can be useful for guide pictures/models. After my computer crashed on me, I went to use a master chief action figure that worked pretty well.  
I will do a tutorial for the assault rifle, just ask. :-)
Awesome! Yes please! :D
I made it already, just look on my page
<p>can you make ODST armour tutorial for me pls?</p>
<p>question: what age group does this fit, and can you make a version with improved mobility, since this doesn`t look to flexible.</p>
<p>also, is it possible to wear glasses in this?</p>
<p>I'm thinking about making an instructable on a hunter from Destiny, what do you guys think?</p>
<p>I also REALLY enjoy parkour, so I might design it with mobility in mind, and do some parkour in it!</p>
<p>Parkour is literally my favorite thing ever (sadly I suck at wallruns, especially horizontal) so yes, make it for mobility. Also, try editing this for mobility</p>
It took about a month or two go make
<p>how long did this take to make??</p>
<p>The helmet's &quot;nose&quot; area is a bit too fat to look like master chief.</p>
<p> Can you build a ODST armor plz?</p>

<blockquote>will you make an o.d.s.t costume ??????? </blockquote>
Possibly for next Halloween. possibly.
<p>can you see through the visor</p>
<p>Not very well, but yes.</p>
you could make this in any color right
Yes, you could make this in blue, red, or any other color.
I think the 117 sign is on the right not left but it don't matter.
On the Master Chief armor you are lacking the &quot;puppy dog nose.&quot;
I know, the visor is quite weak so I can't push on it and I had the visor in before I realized that I was missing the &quot;puppy dog nose&quot; :-(
is it possible for you to make an instructable on Carter's Helmet from Reach? <br>i've been building Carter for the last week and it'd be very valuable to me to know how to make the helmet. cheers, Ben <br>
Although, I will make an instructable, if you want me to.
please do :)
What I would do, looking at Carter's helmet, is make the parts that are outlined in yellow in good, 3D detail out of cardboard. Then make the part that is outlined in green out of 1 wraparound piece of cardboard that connects at the back of the helmet and attach this piece to the top of the helmet. Then add all of the details on the helmet out of cardboard(or foam, but by the looks of it your main material is cardboard.) Then paint and you are done!
cheers man, you've been a great help. i finished up yesterday and the results are amazing! i'm starting a 2006 Cyberman after Christmas. <br> <br> <br>-Ben
cheers Master Plo. <br>i finished the Armour Yesterday at 10:23pm
Well for my helmet, I made the top first out of cardboard for stability, and then made a simple sheet of cardboard shaped to be the bottom of the helmet, and put the details on in foam later. Just ask any questions if you have them. <br>
can you make a tutorial for the helmet pleeeeeeeeeese???
Maybe in another whole instructable if enough people ask. :D
Can u Make a tutorial of all good guns :<br>Pistol<br>Shotgun<br>Plasma pistol<br>(Ect)
For the shotgun and other larger guns, use my assault rifle or battle rifle method. For the pistol, use DaFrontLineTrooper's pistol tutorial. For the plasma pistol, simply carve the pistol out of a block of foam. Trace out the shape of the pistol with a knife in the foam, then use the knife to carve out the details. My pictures are attached to this post.
you're the soldier we need you to be.
Nice work
Tutorial for everything plzz and make new things
Nice work! How'd you do the visor?
I used Design Master Colortool Brilliant Gold Spraypaint. Apply one&nbsp;light layer onto transparency paper (used for overhead projectors)
Nice job
