Master Chief Goes Victorian with this Halo Steampunk Helmet
June 22, 2010 10 Comments
There is something inexplicable about the innate allurement of modern utilitarian objects adorned with Victorian design elements. The last time we saw this mechanical “steampunk” style was on an Xbox 360 controller, and now, thanks to Christophe, we have the pleasure of seeing something Halo-related redesigned in the same popular trend. A project that, from visualization to fruition, spanned almost two months, this Halo steampunk helmet was more than worth both the time and effort. Christophe used plumbing PVC pipe and four layers of acrylic and spray paint as the tangible materials, but he says the recurring theme was failure and then numerous retries until something worked. Thankfully he stuck with it though because I’m pretty sure Master Chief could go diving in this thing. And needless to say, that will definitely come in handy when I meet him.
