This is the information on BCE Productions' first suit of Halo armor, currently in construction:
The armor consists of all standard Mark VI Spartan pieces, however, the torso piece is a Halo 2 ODST torso, unfolded by Robogenesis. I chose to make the ODST torso because the design is slightly bigger then the Mark VI torso I have.
The armor pieces are made of a card stock (thick paper) base, waterproofed and treated with Aqua resin (similar to polyurathane resin) and fiberglassed on the insides to provide support. The pieces will then be spray painted with three different coats of paint: one primer, one silver (for shine), one blood red. After padding, and the input of a visor, the armor is done.
The weaponry (Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle, Frag Grenades) will be done slightly differently:
After pepping (cutting and folding), the next step is to waterproof and coat the pieces with aqua resin. However, I cannot resin or fiberglass the insides, because they are closed figures. So, after resining, I move straight to spray painting. I will coat the assault rifle with 1 coat primer, 2 coats gray, and the sniper rifle with one coat primer, one coat silver, one coat flat black. The frag grenades are under debate as of now.
For detailed information on the different pieces, and to track how far we've gone into the project, see the post two below this one.
Once the armor is finished, it will be tested and lightly worn by myself, then we're debating over 2 options:
1. Keeping the armor
2. Selling on Ebay or over a store sight to our devoted fans (any of you out there?)
