    I actually saw a dragon mask from Skyrim tutorial, and it linked this place as one of the places to learn how to pepakura. It all started then, about a month ago. Hadn't heard of it before that.

    I can't remember where I first heard of the 405th, I think I may have just been looking at pictures of Armour builds cause I was kinda thinking about making some at the time.

    More recently I started looking for templates for Spartan armour as I'm looking to build my Reach armour

    I was on youtube one day and decided that I has going to build ODST armor so I looked it up and found a hate video I guess? were this guy got banned from the 405th for calling some of guy here a liar and a talentless ass clown? Well the guy showed some of his work and I thought it was awesome so since he said 405th.com in his video I looked you the website and joined.

    I found this place many moons ago, during an extended bout of downtime where for months on end I couldn't register or even look at the forums. I was looking for a place to get feedback about my airsoft BR55-HB battle rifle without walking into a circlejerk in the form of "IT IS HALO AND YOU ARE A GOD" or "IT IS NOT CALLADOOTY AND YOU ARE A FAIL". With the exception of some bizarrely double-standard postings relating to liability issues with making durable armor for use as load-carrying equipment for paintball or airsoft being against forum policy but allowing talk of using carbon composites and boron nitride plate to make *actual* anti-ballistic armor and adding respiratory protection to suits, it has been an extremely professional, extremely helpful, and extremely fun community to take part in.

    Looking around for buying cheap *snort like that was ever going to happen* armor... Nonetheless led me to make my own within a couple weeks after seeing this website.

    I kept running into armor groups like the 405th and 501st in my real life adventures. For example, I saw Weird Al in concert, and he had a chorus line of storm troopers in "the Saga Begins." I also met several Spartans from the 405th at RTX 2013. When researching how to build or buy an ODST outfit, I came across the site. Last birthday, my girlfriend put me in touch with Sean B. (via the admins at GrifballHub) to buy a helmet and start on an armor kit. Now that I am actually beginning the build, I decided it was time to join.

    I was researching cosplay material and techniques after running across the "KamuiCosplay" website - figuring I'd enjoy Blizzcon 2014 in full regalia. That led me to a storm-trooper/ Mandolorian costuming website where people were discussing the pros and cons of respective building materials, specifically Worbla thermoplastic (the reviews were all pretty much "no"). A few posts into it a user suggested EVA foam "like the 405th people" use, and I found my way here! I also ran across a few of JUSTINIAN's builds on The RPF and followed that bread crumb trail, too - but either way both were reasonably indirect means.

    I was watching some prop building tutorials on YouTube and stumbled across Cereal Killl3r's Halo 3 chest armor build series. I heard him say some numbers and I typed them into google. Alas, I found this forum and lurked around a bit before actually joining, and I am glad I did.
