Introduction: How to Make a Halo Suit Step by Step....
All credit goes to Andrew Cook whom originally released the blueprints online. I just made it a little easier to find everything in one spot and made the costume with some help from my mom who loves to design stuff.
This project cost me about $200.00 in materials, the helmet was bought separately from amazon as well as the toy Ak-47 since I couldn't use the original Halo gun because it was very expensive. You will find all the materials you need in here. Have fun guys!
Peace and love.
1- Hot glue gun
2- Heat gun
I used about 10 plates of EVA Foam - You can buy it at Lowe's.
The buckles I also bought from Amazon, I used about 12 of them.
You can paint it with spray cans, they work great. I used a metallic finish type.
*Be as precised as possible when transferring your sizes to real life from the blue prints. Mistakes will be made, but it will be a fun ride! =]
