Even though Halo 5: Guardians has been released for the Xbox One, there's still a way for someone to walk away with a truly one-of-a-kind item based on the sci-fi shooter series. Microsoft's Xbox division in Asia has put a full-sized replica of Master Chief's iconic helmet, adorned with 25,000 Swarovski crystals, up for bid on eBay.
Taiwanese cosplayer Hsu Chia-Hao created the helmet, but Australian designer Jenny Manik Mercian desiged and placed all those crystals on the replica. Mercian has worked with models from Victoria's Secret and other celebrities to design jewelry and crystals to be used as accessories to their outfits. In the video that accompanies the eBay listing, she states that it's very different to work with Master Chief's helmet, which is a decidedly male outfit.
The eBay auction will be ending on November 5, and all the proceeds from the winning bid will go to the non-profit Make-A-Wish Foundation. At the moment, the highest bid is $510, but that is almost certain to go much higher.
