# How to resize Halo armor? Answered

OK, I need to resize my Halo Armor (Link-https://www.instructables.com/id/Build_Halo_Armor/) to my size. I would have asked the 405th but the parental controls won't let me, and my mom wont either. Any suggestions?

Note- got mah templates here-http://halocostuming.wikia.com/wiki/Pepakura_File_Index#Mjolnir_Mark_VI

Take your hoeight +2 and divide it by 86. Take that and multiply it by the current scale. The answer to that is what your new scale should be

my pepakura is working straight right now, so the best answer i can give is pepakura has a scaling feature. its either 405 or instructables has something about that involving halo armor

From Dr.Professor _Jake_Briggs:

"To make the completed Pepakura piece scaled to fit your body type, you'll need to do a little math. I learned the following formula from the 405th.com forums. Measure your height in inches (I'm 6 foot even, so that's 72 inches). Then add 3 inches to that measurement.(for me, 75 inches). Divide that by 86(75/86=0.872093). Then multiply that number by the scale of the current piece you are working on (Right Bicep's scale is 30.342, so 30.342x0.872093=26.461045). Take that last number(26.461045), go to 2DPatternWindow, then click "scale up/down development by specifying value...". Highlight that current scale and replace it with the one you just calculated."

I believe hes using 405th's files so it should match yours
