I don't usually write anything on forums, or social media for that matter. Here goes nothing hoping to make something!
First Name: Jordon (Often going by Spooky, or 3LeggedWolf as my username states)
Profession? Student?: Currently a student going for my doctorate in Computer Science.
Favorite Hobby: Airsoft.
Favorite part of Halo: The way the Reach installment of the franchise seems to focus on the grimdark aspect of the UNSC with Spartans designed to fail, and being a part of one such team that does in many ways do that, but ultimately accomplishes what they set out to do, it feels like a twisted tale of irony
Favorite Halo: I do really enjoy Reach's multiplayer, but for story I thoroughly enjoyed 2 and for the aesthetic and vibe of it how could anyone leave out ODST?
Favorite Video Game: I don't strictly have one, in the last few years I've been caught up with work so much I tend to forget a lot of games, but remember fondly how they made me feel. Two games that come to mind about this are NieR:Automata, and Rise of the Tomb Raider. VR is also insane.
Other Interests: Computer science both baffles and intrigues me. Dungeons and Dragons is something I do, though not very often as there is a lot of planning and I don't typically have a lot of time on my hands. Video games are of course to be listed here, I suppose that goes without saying.
Favorite Food: Butter/Bacon-fried tortilla wraps.
Favorite Band: I don't think i listen to enough music to contribute here, Hippie Sabotage is always good for the vibe, and I can't often pass up Eminem.
Favorite Movie(s): The Thing (1982), Jurassic Park series (Lost World might be a favourite by a small edge)
What do you hope to learn here?: I hope to learn the papercraft method of making armour. I've wanted to do cosplay for quite a long time as I feel it may help me open up a bit more as a person and as such improve as a person whilst being able to don an attire that just feels right. I've done it once before, though only with clothing and not armour.
Have you built/made a costume before?: I can sew and cut fabrics pretty well and make designs that way so long as I have a base to go off, whether it be a shirt, a set of cargos, trousers, anything you name I can add to I probably can. In the past I've cosplayed Qrow Branwen but stopped watching RWBY after Season 4, and as I type this I have a costume and makeup in my draw for today's session of house D&D as a Tabaxi rogue.
Do you belong to any other costume communities? If so, which one(s)?: Unfortunately not, but I hope 405th will be as welcoming as it's reputation proceeds it to be.
Other: My profile picture is supposed to be a fast cat with the Tek saddle from Ark attached as I made it myself and my friends and I joke on about the drakes in Ark: SE.
