As soon as I opened the box I was let down. The pieces are all made out of pretty thin plastic and a few of the Velcro straps were coming off just from trying to pull the pieces apart.
I didn't even open the helmet because I already planned on returning the suit, but the visor was visible and didn't look at all like the picture.
I'd say this costume might be worth about $150 at most.
After being so disappointed I did a little searching and found a site that has instructions for making a pretty sweet looking Master Chief costume for about $400 for all the materials. It sounds kind of time consuming, but I'm going to give it a shot.
Here is the website incase anyone is interested:
Shoe covers: Designed for Size 8 feet or smaller, the part that holds both parts together is made with nylon band [not elastic] so it doesn't even fit AT ALL (size 10.5)
Shin gaurds: Ok.
Thigh armor: Tendency to slide down, also the velcro strips were falling off the plastic.
Crotch/Ass armor: Actually not too bad.
Pouches x2: one of the clips glued onto these pieces fell off immediately, the other was already floating around in the bag.
Chest piece: Very detailed, not too bad.
Upper arm: has 2 metal hooks instead of velcro, need someone to help you put this piece on, also easy to fall off.
Lower arm: Decent.
Gloves: Probably an M, definitely tight if you wear L gloves.
Helmet: Build quality is ok but the appearance of the visor is terrible--its half completely opaque with the tiny oval shaped middle that's clear. Doesn't look at all like the picture for the item. Also, one of the lights didn't always work.
Overall: uncomfortable, really hot (probably would be comfortable in 40F weather), and ill-fitting, not worth $500. At this point, I might just go to a party with just the crappy helmet.
The painting of the cracks looks done by a preschooler. The plastic is thin. The mask has a huge clear area in the center (unlike the photo) and was mongoloid sized.
For that much money I don't necessarily expect leather fiberglass, but that whole suit probably cost $15 to make. It's an embarrassment to Amazon.
Don't waste your money. If you see one for $49.99 I'd say pick it up, but don't waste the interest you can earn keeping the money in the bank,
Forst off, the armor pieces are pretty good quality and are pretty sturdy, however the scratches painted on look *terrible*, as if a 4 year old did it. I was already planning on repainting the armor anyways, but just as a heads up to anyone that was planning on leaving it as is.
The helmet is definitely the weakest link. It feels a lot more flimsy than the rest of the armor and one of the lights had popped out on mine. It was an easy fix, but still. However the helmet is quite comfortable and the padding on the inside makes it fit really nice. I still reccommend upgrading at some point.
The bodysuit is very comfortable and nice quality, the only problem i had is that it seemed to be made for someone significantly taller and...*ahem* wider than me, so it had to be taken in a little pretty much everywhere. I mean no big deal, I'm only 5' 8", the national average for men so you would think it would fit me. But i digress.
The costume is quite bulky and hard to put on by yourself, you can sit in it, but not comfortably unless you take the cod piece off so keep rhat in mind for car trips. It is also incredibly warm so if you live in a warmer climate you may have some difficulty not sweating like a pig. Also you have to take all your armor off to unzip the costume to use the bathroom, so keep that in mind if you're drinking any liquids.
All in all, not bad for $350. I would hesitate to purchase it at a higher price because of the amount of work involved to get it customized for your own personal preferences, but good luck finding this quality spartan armor at this price.
The helmet was the first thing to catch my eye as I opened the box. It is large, padded, and contains two blue lights just like in the game. Awesome.
The other pieces aren't so great. A black padded suit forms the base layer and my copy had a small rip in the chest area which allowed the foam padding to start leaking out. The plastic components are very thin (think of flimsy takeout food container material) with sharp edges. This lack of quality is definitely not worth the price.
There isn't much else to say. While the costume looks cool it seems that the manufacturer took some shortcuts instead of making this a truly "deluxe" costume.
