The Intimidator Master Chief Spartan suit of armor by Dave French
Meet my hubby Dave French, maker of the Intimidator suit of armor
Who is that Spartan?
Dave French won't easily take his helmet off; he prefers the anonymity of wearing a suit of armor. As his wife I can tell you that his personality is quite reserved, and he is rather introverted.
He enjoyed the time he spent making the costume and video taping the how to make foam armor tutorials (included on this hub), and wearing the armor suits him.

The Making of the Master Chief (Armor by Dave French)
It took Dave countless hours to make this Master Chief from halo suit of armor out of foam. It is custom made from head to toe. To this day he still likes to tweak the suit. Every year at Halloween the suit comes out, and generally gets some upgrades.
The ambitious in foam armor design can follow Dave French's halo foam armor tutorials to make the costume at home. And only in the tutorials can glimpses of the reclusive man beneath the armor be seen.

Does Dave make these suits for other people?
For awhile Dave sold the patterns he used to cut the foam pieces for the armor. He thought about getting into producing similar foam costumes, but it's very labor and time intensive. The trouble is most folks don't want to pay enough for the suit of armor costume to make it worthwhile. The patterns are now available by donation - send Dave an email at email@example.com to request them.
