Being Master Chief for Halloween.


custume 001

With the popularity of the Halo franchise, its no surprise that many official products have been made for it. We've seen many unofficial creations of Spartan armor and due to the fact that its Halloween, it would be a perfect time to be the Master Chief. Rubies has gone ahead and picked up the license to make Halo suits and has offered a few different varieties of them. Mine happens to be the standard version, which retails for about $60.00 bucks. It includes the complete jump suit and a two piece helmet.

So how does the suit stack up? Pretty nicely. While It does fit pretty nicely, I recommend hanging it up for awhile so the material and the plastic can loosen up from being so tightly stored in the bag. The helmet is pretty nice and you can see through the visor easily. The two piece helmet attaches with the included Velcro and looks quite good.

This is strictly for Halloween or costume events though. As it would not handle the wear and tear of using it every day. For what ever reason you would wear it everyday I don't know, but you know...just in case.

Overall, I give it a 3.5 out of 5. Its a decent costume, but I still think its a little expensive. Not bad.
