My son thought it would be cool to have a Halo Halloween costume. After much searching on the internet, I found some helpful advice on Youtube. I took cardboard and cut it to shape. I bent it to fit my son's body and spraypainted it with metallic green.
I then cut additional pieces of cardboard and glued it to the leg, arm and chest pieces to give it depth and character. I attached elastic that I found in the sewing section. I attached these with hot glue and used hot glue to glue the cardboard together.
This costume was a bit time consuming. Prepare yourself for some blisters, between cutting the cardboard and hot gluing. You can come up with all sorts of ideas on this costume though. It was a very cheap costume to make. I really only had to pay for the spraypaint and I purchased some curly shoelaces for the helmet.
The helmet I cut into cardboard pieces and hotglued together. I bought some yellow plastic that you would wrap flowers or gifts in and hot glued it to the inside of the visor. ENJOY!

This is the Homemade Halo Scout Halloween Costume I built for my 11 year old son of the Scout armor from the video game Halo. It was built from cardboard and hot glue to make the form of the costume.
I then covered it with fiberglass to give it strength. Auto body filler was then used to smooth the surface and add details. A couple of coats of red paint and details in black and it was about finished. The gold visor was cut from a plastic ice cream bucket, painted and then covered with packing tape to keep the paint from scratching off.
There are blue LED lights in the chest plate and knees. The shotgun was made from a broken plastic toy machine gun, electrical conduit, PVC pipe and cardboard. The costume took nearly 120 hours of time and cost about $100 to build. The majority of the cost was for the fiberglass cloth and resin, auto body filler and spray paint.

I made this Homemade Master Chief Costume using a technique that I found online that had me printing off pieces of cardstock, cutting them out, folding them according to the lines. I glued the pieces together by matching numbers. After that I used fiberglass, and fiberglass resin to make it durable and sturdy.
Then I sanded it with a dremel tool, and then sandpaper. Detailed with spray paint, and then finally used straps, buckles and Velcro to hold it together. Bought a motorcycle visor for the helmet, black clothing for underneath and motorcycle gloves for the hands.
It roughly cost me $200 and I spent about 4 months making it.
