Dude... AWESOME!

I like how you finished the helmet and the magnum
But, your missing one shoulder pad, or is it like that?

Anyways, you completely changed my definition of Halo armor. Marine armor can be just has cool has Spartan 8)

looks very cool, but in my opinion the sweat pants sort of detract a bit from the overall effect, do you have any alternatives?

even so, awesome.
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.

As the guy from Troll 2 says:

OH my GOOOOOOOOOOD.

Yeah, this is pretty damn cool. I agree with Rody about the sweat pants though, try khaki pants or something that looks a bit more like combat fatigues.

Oh, didn't realize he was going for that.

In that case, you could try finding some light grey cargo pants. I'm sure you could even find some snow camo pants in some random clothing store, I've seen forest camo stuff in a lot of places.

Indeed, I have two pairs of shorts which I regularly use in khaki and urban patterns. Try a sports shop, check the hunting shelf or something

Thanks for all the feed back.
BFenix I was original going to have a spartan laser with me so that is why I only have one shoulder pad so I could put it on my shoulder like in the game. But I was not going to be able to finish that in time so I made a flag and a pistol.
Also about the trousers I could not find any snow camo and the they also are the same colors as the long sleeve shirt I have on like Bonn-o-Tron.

Army surplus stores a good place to find suitable and cheap clothing for this. It looks really cool, and I know you want the arctic look, but I think the white still sort of makes the whole thing looks a bit like paper. Maybe at some wear and weathering effect to it (sparingly, of course, and test it on a separate piece that you won't ruin). :)
It's a secret to everybody.

If you plan on weathering it, I recommend dry brushing with some light grey

Upon closer inspection, it looks like you've done just that already. It may just be washed out in the photos. Don't mind me. :)

It is hard to see on the camera but I have done some weathering, but I know what you mean about it still looking like paper I might try adding another layer of camo in gray to give it a similar effect as real camo.
