First Name: Grant

Profession? Student?: I am a student. Currently in my first year of college as a UAS Operations major.

Age: 19

Favorite Hobby: Playing video games

Favorite part of Halo: All of the memories I have made, and the people I have met.

Favorite Halo: Reach

Favorite Video Game: Call of Duty. Just kidding, I would have to say, again, Halo: Reach. That might change though, with the release of Infinite

Other Interests: Music, creating stuff, cars

Favorite Food: Hard to say, depends on my mood, really. However, I find it really hard to pass up a bowl of genuine Japanese ramen.

Favorite Band: Being a music nerd, I could never pick a singular favorite. Some of my go-to's include some classic rock bands like Queen, Pink Floyd, Def Leppard, and Elton John, to some newer, lesser known bands like Mutemath, The Band CAMINO, or some other not-so-lesser-known artists like John Mayer.

Favorite Movie(s): I don't watch too many movies, but I do love me some Star Wars, as well as some Marvel movies, like the Iron Man's, or the Tom Holland Spiderman's.

What do you hope to learn here?: I hope to learn anything I can about making armor, specifically 3D printing it, as well as different methods of attaching the armor to your body. I am also very interested in learning about how people make their visors. Especially the more detailed ones made with methods like vacu-forming. Different methods of painting armor to make it look realistic are also an interest of mine.

Have you built/made a costume before?: I have made a costume before, recently actually, but it's nothing compared to a full-on suit of Halo armor (which I plan to attempt to make soon)!

Do you belong to any other costume communities? If so, which one(s)?: I am not.

Other: I have recently been searching all over the internet and this forum just to see some of the armors that people have made, and man, is there so many INCREDIBLE builds out there. It's all so inspiring! I have also been through the forum quite a bit already, and it's unbelievable what you guys have accomplished on here. I can't wait to learn from you guys, and I am so excited to join the ranks of the 405th community. I'll see you out there, Spartans (and Elites)!
