Okay...so the last time I was into a game console, it was a Super Nintendo! Don't laugh Yoshi and Wario are AWESOME! Well anywho..my husband is a HALO fanatic. I told him about some halo cookies I saw here on crafter, and he was probably more excited than the people who actually ate the cookies! Tongue

Soooo I've come up with a few Valentine's DAy ideas, and I was wondering if you guys could help me think of anything HALO specific...Keep in mind that althogh I'm an excellent crafter, I wouldn't know anything about HALO if it bit me in the..ya know.

HELP ME! lol

How about a stencil of master chief (the main guy) for his game console?  A stenciled T, magnets, etc. too. 

My husband is a fan of BioShock game, and I watched over his shoulder one night (that game is creeeepy!).  I noticed some cool signs hanging on the walls in the game and made a few of them (you can search online for misc. screenshots!)... he loved that I did something just for him from what he loves - good luck!!

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

Bioshock is a very, very creepy game. I agree.

You could try making a Master Chief plushie that he could display in his game room - someone on here made one, I think. You could search for it...or if I'm wrong and it's not here AND you're interested, PM me and I'll send you the link. I think I saved it, but it's buried in my list of things I need to make.  Roll Eyes

there is really only one logical answer to this question, and that would be to find out his player name/i.d., then knit him a helmet that straps under his chin with his name/i.d. embroidered on the front of the knitted helmet. of course you'll need tor research helmet color etc, but i think he'd be very pleased, cheers

Well, actually, there are plenty of logical answers to this question, although yours is a good one as well...but I can't help but think it would be rather difficult to find (or draft) a pattern for a Spartan helmet and knit it all up by the 14th since it is less than a week away. Still, though, if you try to undertake it, envyus, I'd love to see the end result.

Another thing I thought of was the paper Spartans I found kicking around the web - they might make for a cute card: http://nikon.bungie.org/misc/nomi_spartans/

By the way, if you're interested in finding out more about Halo, try the Halopedia at http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page.

i love this post- i'm almost done with a master chief amigurumi for my boyfriend.  i figured that if he gets mad at another player, he can chuck his master chief at the tv without doing any harm.   Grin

I made my halo obsessed boyfriend a master chief plushie out of felt. (He looks a lot better than this, irl! and I apologize for the huge pictures!!!)

He took a long time, but he was totally worth it. He loved it.

I also made him a few halo shirts, and an energy sword plushie.

Another thing that you could do, is take a plain picture frame, and glue pictures of Master Chief all over them
Like I did with Batman here...

Hope I gave you a few ideas!!

Here, this might help inspire you. It's a link to the UNSC logo. Or rather the UNSCDF logo- just remove the last two letters. It stands for UN space corps. Sorry about the DF (defense forces) but this is a much clearer logo than elsewhere.

Putting this on just about anything desert tan to olive drab would probably make his Valentine's day. On Bungie's website, I could only find a water bottle and a hat with the UNSC logo. Here's the hat, for reference:
