30 Days of Halo: Day 28 – Favourite Halo Cosplay

I envy cosplayers, I envy them so much. They work so hard, labouring for months and months to build the costume of their favourite characters and wear it to a convention with like-minded people, celebrating their love for various characters across various franchises. It must be quite surreal to walk into a room and see people gathered in a circle dressed up as Link, Ezio, Commander Shepard, the Eleventh Doctor and the Dragonborn just having a normal conversation.

That’s a world I wish I could get into, but it has to be said that I lack the craftsmanship to create something quite as amazing as those I’ve seen. Fancy dress parties are still a daunting prospect for me, damn it…

But anyway, the Halo cosplay that I would consider my favourite is one that I followed the development process of for a number of months. It’s one that I thought was absolutely bloody mad, yet brilliant, and had no idea if they could pull it off. But they did.

The Ur-Didact…

cp1Just take that in for a moment because it’s absolutely amazing… Forerunner armour is comprised of a various amount of floating, disconnected segments which have been perfectly recreated here. Not only that, but the armour is practically identical to the Ur-Didact’s in the game.

cp2The Needler prop is excellent as well, safe to say that you would not want to bump into this fully armoured Promethean in the toilet…
