This homemade costume for men entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Steven, the 'Master Chief' costume creator:
This year I decided to challenge my creative side and make an awesome halo costume based on the master chief character from the games.
The primary items used in this costume are:
1. Cardboard boxes
2. Masking tape
3. Hot glue (high temp)
4. Spray paint (6 bottles).
5. Parachute clips
I started with the gun prop first because I figured the rest of the costume wasn't worth it if I didn't have the blaster to go with it. This piece took 6 hours. I began with a calendar box and layered strips of cardboard until it made the shape of the blaster.
Next came the Helmet, which was by far the most important piece. This one too 23 hours to make. I made the basic round shape for the mask and started the layering process. I also used blue finger lights glued into the side for the lighting effect. This piece came with many burns and trial and error.
Next came the chest plate. This part took 14 hours. I used an old car seat box and the same layer process. There was a lot of individual pieces glued one at a time to get it to shape the way I wanted.
The arms, legs, hands, belt, and feet took 9 hours. I used parachute clips to strap them to my legs and the belt to my waist. These were all done with the same process.
