MZ_MakerHobbies-Badge.gifShawn Thorsson, of Petaluma, CA, has done it again. We wrote about his Predator costume a few weeks back. Now he’s made a whole freaking army, or at least a squad, of Red vs. Blue Master Chief costumes. A three year effort. Insane, indeed. And by insane, we mean awesome!

    This is some incredible work :) I was wondering if you sell armor kits or anything like that, I’m looking to put together a suit of spartan mark VI armor with a mark V helmet. If you don’t sell kits would you possibly know someone that does?
