Hey there colonial! Since our introduction page is soooooo old. Let's kick the dust off and re-introduce ourselves to one another.


Name: Mike Harrison
Nickname (optional): Harri
Age: 32
Location: Bath, NY
Occupation: Quality Department (This covers all that I do)
About me: Well not much to say. If you know me I'm a father of 4 girls, save me, and I work in quality control. So as for me in the 405th I joined in 2013, before Benton, after stalking the forums for about two to three years. I went to my first con in 2015 as a BDU dressed ODST and after mad my push to make my MK.1 Odst armor and then finally went to a con in 2016 at Twin-Tiers Comic-Con and in 2017 met most of our active faces. My current goals now are to make a Tier 3 ODST and make a Halo Reach Spartan Armor. After that, I've been active in the regiment and the group. In 2020 I became the RMO and still am for now, which I am very happy I am and able to assist every one of you.

Age: Digits don't go that high so don't ask.......seriously........its past 1/2 century ok?..... so just let it go......ALRIGHT!!!! I'll be 52 next month.....now shut up you young whipper snappers!!! And get off my lawn!!!
Occupation: Professional Handyman and Home Inspector (working on that last one)
Suits: I have a completed Centurion for myself, one Halo Kitty ODSK (Orbital Drop Shock Kitty) for one of my daughters,and I'm in the middle of 3 others.....1 Emile for my son ( had to change the size 4 times since I started....he went from 4' 6" to 6'5" almost overnight!!!), a Caboose for another daughter (she is all over the place when it comes to cosplay so no rush on this one, no thread on this one) and a full Peped Argus for my next suit!! Should be done by next year.....Want this to be the best suit I ever built!!!
Forum Job: As the title indicates, I'm the Divisions Scheduler and Keeper of the Cons list...... which means when I'm doing my job, our fearless leader know who to launch the deadly "wet noodle" missile at and where you can go to show off your suit at the next local Con.....or if you travel....the next Con on you wish list........(Dragon Con for me!!)
Hobbies: I used to skydive (hence the Dirtdives reference) but now I keep things closer to the ground or as far as my tallest ladder will allow, lots of Xbox fortnight (too much according to the wife), woodworking, handiwork......I know its my new profession but the second I don't like it....it turns into a job......I like handiwork too much to insult it by saying it a job, and building cosplay suits and outfits for my kids. They are at the point they don't need me till something breaks or they need to buy something.....typical......teens.....

S188
Name: Benton Samec
Age: 32
Location: Erie, PA
Occupation: Flooring Installer
Suits: Oh boy uhhhhh. Halo 3, Reach, Halo 4, another Reach, another Reach, another Halo 3, another Reach, and another Reach......... Oh and the Ghost,.......and then the Ghost again. And then like 5 other full armor suits that aren't Halo related.
Hobbies: Cosplay (of course), Going to auctions or yard sales, playing Rock Band, collecting weaponry (real or fake), and video editing.

About Me: Yes, I did join the 405th after Harri51 in 2013, but I did have 2 full suits done before him, so.... :p. I kinda stumbled into costume and prop making scene after tinkering around making some gifts for a few friends. I've always like being a sort of inventor, messing with things or materials to see what I could create with them, and discovering Pepakura one day really opened up the flood gates on that reality.

So with that discovery, and my love of Halo, I smacked the two things together and ended up here. I started in Pepakura with Resin and Bondo, but have now switched over to making everything primarily in EVA foam. I also work with wood, metal, electronics, motors, moving parts, random junk, basically everything but the kitchen sink (Though I have heard you can make a pretty cool fire forge out of one.....so maybe.....) Long story short, I love building things. The more complicated or impossible, the more fun I have with it. And I'll probably be doing this sort of stuff well into my 80's, so I don't expect to stop any times soon ;)

Welcome to the 405th, never call your work crap. Instead call it your introduction piece. We will be doing fun things as a group soon as covid restrictions let up. We all look forward to seeing your builds and their progress. Know to troop with us you will have to have a parent or guardian present. Other than that welcome and be sure to say hello to our membership officer Harri51
