    The suit looks great! I think the Halo series is the best thing in sci-fi since Star Wars. If you do decide to let go of it, what kind of price were you thinking?

    Sorry about being in the head but it had the best lighting in the whole house. Its a casting by Adam Grumbo and the helmet is Sean Bradley. The shoes are supposed to be big like that.
    If you got it from Adam then it is the OXMOX master chief statue recasts.

    It seems like this is a basis for most people now who then work their way up to blue realm/sean bradley hybrids.

    Depending on if you got castings Adam did for you or if they were just rejects he had laying around the quality can be very different. I got some pieces from him awhile back. I had a set of forearms where the left was several layers of Smooth-on liquid plastic and very heavy, while the right was very few layers, very light, but easily bendable/crackable.

    That's one of Adam's suits? I may be interested in getting a set in the future, but I don't know how tall of a person it can fit, cause I remember most of it being casted off of a MC statue. Looks good man

    Chris, this will not fit you. I had to mod most of the pieces adam made for me to fit me. The shoulders were way too tight (if i flexed even the slightest they would cut into me) and the chest if casted thick does not allow a lot of movement once connected to the back. The forearms i had to shave heavily to get my wrists through, and the thighs were also very tight.


    If you pick stuff up be prepared to mod it. just a heads up.

    If you don't remember I'm 6'5" and 195lbs

    Yeah man, I def had to revamp the whole suit to fit me and strenghten it with fiberglass. The wrists were tight and the shoulders did dig in. Its not the cleanest suit but it does the job. It is kinda sloppy but after my revamp it looks %100 better then when I got it. When the kid I bought it from sent it and it arrived it all got crushed in shipping, so I had to refit the whole suit. I made it ten times stronger though.

    I saw your note on facebook, figured I'd post here. I sent those beads a long time ago, and since you didn't recieve them, I'm going to send out some more today. I can't help the fact that the postal service sucks, but I can send you some more.

    Sorry about that.

    well the skin is under armor and the vest is actually a motor cross vest so it helps beef it up a bit, fills in those hard to fill places if that makes any sense

    If you didn't recieve it, either I sent it to the wrong address, or the post office lost it, because I did send it.

    I'm sending you another trio today.

    Ah ok, thanks for letting me know. Hmm..I'd love to have a masterchief suit, but then again, I want alot of other things too! Maybe one of these days.

    I have actually been thinking about making a suit myself, but I'd change how people have been doing it...like makeing certain aspects that most make hard solid pieces, into ridged soft/foam parts...for example. the inside of the thigh/upper leg armor can be soft/hard foam attached to the actual hard armor. Basically, all the black areas on the suit (inner biceps for example, and the merging connection into the lower calf armor can be soft piece...I dunno, but the way I would do it would cost alot of $$


    lol if you don't remember, I am 6'6" and 287lbs EXACT

    That's what I had to do, the thighs cut into me so I stitched hardened rubber to a vinyl+cloth piece and buttoned it to the hard armor.


    I still have no way of wearing a lot of it without sag though. I was thinking about getting a unitard and permanently attaching patches of velcro that the armor couldn't help but rest against.


    It's like wearing a stormtrooper, all the pieces don't secure as nicely as they could so figuring out how to wear it is just as much of a project as puttign together the suit

    You could try something called an arming belt! Knights used to wear a wide inner belt underneath the breat plate. This wide belt then had strapping that connected to the chauces or thigh armor. Think of it like a medieval garter belt. But the thing is from having worn armor with and without an arming belt it does make a BIG difference. No sag at all.

    you know what else I was thinking for securing the armor pieces so they don't sag/fall out of place? Make the armor physically attached to certain parts of the undersuit. I sit it here and look at all my figures, and references and it's obvious that the undersuit stretches around based on the movement of the armor pieces which tells me that the armor is attached directly to the undersut..

    Hmm...I need to figure something out to solve this..
