Halo Elite Costume

Ontario-based special effects artist Pete Mander has created the greatest Halo costume yet: an 8-foot-tall Elite from the ranks of the zealous alien Covenant in Halo. They're best known to humans as Elites in the Halo universe because of their adeptness and skill in combat, the Sangheili formed the military backbone of the Covenant for almost the entirety of its existence. They had a very strong rivalry with the Brutes, which finally became open hatred during the Great Schism, and the conclusion of the Human-Covenant War.

Princess Peach Halo 5

Halo 5: Guardians and Super Mario Bros. 64 aren't synonymous, but one fan decided to combine the two and recreate Princess Peach's castle in the first-person shooter. Reddit user "Bearskopff" spent hours on the map, and believe it or not, every single brick is a single object in the map, as he said "no shortcuts taken here," while remaining very keen to simulating the geometry found in the original game.

SR1 Subterranean Rover


Think of the SR‐1 "Subterranean Rover" as a cross between a Halo Warthog and an extremely rugged, all-terrain dune buggy that's designed to withstand harsh environments while offering a safe, comfortable ride to its users. While it wasn't built for war, it does specialize in transporting workers or materials in harsh environments, thanks to virtually indestructible anti-corrosive / fire-retardant roll cage, steel roof, 16-point suspension, as well as a fire suppression system. On the outside, you have ultra rugged 4130 chromoly DOM tubing chassis, along with a Tier 3 Cummins 4QSB Diesel. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Brick master Cody Fowler combined two of his passions, Halo 5 and LEGO, for a massive project that took approximately 3-years to complete using more than 10,000 bricks. This UNSC ship recreation not only looks the part, but blue LEDs were installed for added effect. Unlike similar builds, you won't find any stacks on this vessel, as everything was carefully planned to have only two support beams showing. Continue reading for a couple more pictures.

Halo 5 is currently one of the hottest games available, so much so that gamer DeAnna Davis decided to create real-life armor modeled after the in-game suits. "My Halo 5 Kelly 087 is my 10th full suit of armor offically ( not counting projects that included armor work but wasnt a full head to toe ordeal) And the first thing i learned was mobility is most important, (which i learned the hard way since i couldnt bend my knees or sit down in my deamon hunter cosplay xD(my 1st suit ever (go big or go home). But I really took that to heart with this suit so in a little less than one whole month of non stop work i made sure everything was not only easy to move in but pretty comfortable," said Davis.

Real-Life Halo Warthog Vehicle

Yes, this real-life Halo 4 Warthog vehicle commissioned by 343 Industries, a subsidiary of Microsoft, and built by the Aria has been circulating on the internet for quite some time now, but it recently visited Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Tacoma, Washington and this epic video ensued. Just to recap, it's based on the Hummer H1 chassis and stands 8-feet tall. The team spent months creating a Warthog body identical to the video version, right down to the fake rivets on the plastic reinforced fiberglass body panels and gauges in the interior with static readouts. That's not all, even the horn heard in-game has been lifted and attached to a speaker. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
