So i've been lurking on the site for a little while, always interested in other peoples builds and gettin ideas for my own. I'm not a huge cosplay person, and i'm not even really that big into halo hence why i didnt choose to do halo armour i have how ever been workin on this project for about 2 weeks now. I think i must haave built the helmet 3 times and the lancer twice. I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist so when it doesnt look right or doesnt work then i have to redo it.

So far i have the helmet pep'd, i have made 2 guns, one was sliced the other was half sliced half pep'd and i have half a dozen sheets of foam to make the armour out of basically i have gone and done pretty much every type of technique i could find and decided to try them all out building this costume heres the start of the project. Keepin in mind i have been workin on this 2 weeks i have only just started to document so rather than tell in pictures what i have done i will try to best desciribe how i got to the point i am. The helmet went togeether relativly well, this was the third atempt but the only reason for that was originally i built it out of paaper rather than card and it didnt hold up when i applied the resin. Its the standard HD cog helmet that is floating around this site, the only things i changed where that as u can see form the pics i decided to leave the front sections on the face plate open, as wwell as the small 'vents' on the top towards the back. The reason for this was that i will be puttin a metal mesh material over those holes so they do actually act as vents. Mainly cause i think it adds a little realism to the helmet as well as looking cool too i've also come up with a paint scheme for the helmet, i've decided not to go for the classic gears of war paint scheme wich is blue, i've decided to go for red.

And these are the weapons i have decided to make the first is the standard lancer wich i thought was an absolute must have. This particular version i found on another paper model site. It was originally meant to be a mini model about half the size of an xbox. After a little tweaking i blew it up cut out the parts and it went together really well, like the helmet i orignally made this out of paper so had to rebuild it. To get around the fact that these are normally hollow inside i actually reinforced the inside, not with resin or anythin like that but, with card the long top part is basically honey comb.a technique i have been doin for a long time.

It keeps models lightweight but adds a lot of support. Basically there are 2 long strips of card goin thru it horizontally and then at 1 inch intervals there are strips running vertically. As well as that i decided to make the handle a sliced handle as is the sections either side of where the ammo slots in and the saw at the front i also decided to add magnets so that i can change ammo cartridges to add a bit more realism to the model the only thing i am disappointed about is the fact i used corrugated card, wich was a huge mistake on my part as i now have to go along with a hot glue gun to seal up the corrugated edges. In hindsight i should have thought about it and done it with mountboard but oh well live and learn lol this particular gun i have no idea where its from. I have a feelin its from fallout but i'm not entirely sure. Its deffinatly not halo or gears of war, but i like the look of it.
