Up for auction: Halo’s Master Chief costume for the Microsoft Giving Campaign 2010

clip_image001The Giving Campaign Auction is in full swing, and I’ve posted an item in time for Halloween: a kid’s Master Chief costume! (folks at Microsoft should search for auction item 3365.)

Last year I offered a number of cool items that netted quite a bit for the Giving Campaign. ( This year I’ve been busy and haven’t had the time to wrangle up a bunch of items, (tsk, tsk) but I’m hopeful for this one. It’s the well-worn and “as seen on TV” costume from the Halo series. Folks at the company might’ve seen this Spartan wandering the halls at Microsoft in the past, filling a large pillow case with candy. Sadly, the boys have outgrown this trusted costume so up it goes on the auction block for charity (auction ends 10/27).

This costume features a full suit, gloves, custom-fabricated Spartan helmet and (where allowed 😉 foam battle rifle. The helmet is hand-made and fiberglass coated, as is the rifle (it was a quick assemble).  Our son made the local and national news in this getup. Sizing is for a 7-9 year old.

BTW, I’ll match dollar for dollar the winning bid. So, Microsofties: bid high to see your bid turn into a 4X donation!

(Please note that the large retail package and child pictured are not included in the auction. 😉
