I apologise beforehand if this topic has already been done but i couldn't find it anywhere but i was hoping someone could help me on how to make the outfits?
Not very sure what to do and just the Master Chief and how it's done would be great. thanks.

I had been thinking about making Halo armor myself, as the pepakura patterns that have been released make it just about accessible to anyone.
(My Samus suits are made of wire frames covered in foil and paper-mache with some model magic and paperclay for detailing and to fill in some divets. Each frame was painstakingly made from scratch by myself, so having Halo armor patterns made for you with a little scaling cuts out quite a bit of work! I always wanted to try the resin/bondo method to make realistic armor as well).
405th is a good resource, and a girl that posted a "safer" method using Aquaresin guest starred on Indy Mogul's BFX series about Halo armor, and shows a fast-forwarded tutorial. It does not get into all the gritty details, but it is a good start.
Seeing as how you want to do the classic armor it should not be hard to find those files, but for those that want to make custom armor using a variety of pieces- go to the Halo costuming Wiki, which also gives helpful tips.
Even for non-Halo related armor I think it is a good method to make sturdy, professional looking cosplays.
Good luck to you! :)

Old thread is old, but I figured I'd chime in.
I've been making some armor myself recently, but instead of aqua resin I've been using Smooth-cast from smooth-on.
Its basically a two-part liquid plastic that dries into a urethane plastic, so you can paint it onto the pepakura and wait for it to harden.
