I’m waiting for most of the supplies to ship in so I can start the actual armor building, but the wait means I have plenty of time to work on the Halo 4 Undersuit. I know a lot of people freak out when they think about possibly creating their own undersuit from scratch since sewing isn’t a skill most people learn growing up (not for anyone I really knew), but it’s really not that bad. My girlfriend taught me and if I could learn anyone can. Like the outer armor, it just takes time and dedication to learn the basics. I’m hoping this can help people get on the right track.
Note: The rest of this post takes place over the course of several days, so don’t freak out if you try this yourself and don’t get it done in a day. If you do, you’re a sewing monster.
Searching for Reference Pics
First off I wanted to get some good reference shots of what the new undersuit looks like… or, in this case, any reference shots. There’s not much out there since the game isn’t even a month old yet and it’s usually covered by the outer armor anyways, but luckily we have Spartan Ops to help out. I snagged a few screen caps of the what the undersuit looks like in the mini films before Episode 1.
