I am making a few Halo 3 Costumes for some people, and I wanted to show the process. I started about an hour ago, here are the pics.
I am using a thin, but strong cardstock that is similar to watercolor paper, but is as thin as printer paper. It is very stiff, that is why I use it.
The pattern for this was obtained from the 3d models in the game. It was run through an unfolding program called "Pepakura", and printed.
Stay tuned for more progress...
