Other: I just looked up in the other new posts, (after writing this) and Azarov if you are reading this also a huge Contact harvest fan, Die hard is a Christmas movie, and looking through your intro sheet I think we could be friends XD

Subzero

First Name: Tony
Profession?: Hydrogeologist
Age: 48
Favorite Hobby: Martial Arts (karate, taekwondo, muay thai)

Favorite part of Halo: There are so many things to list. I was initially drawn to the armor of the spartans. Upon research of the armor I read more about Master Chief, his backstory, and relationship with Cortana. Eventually, I started reading the books and have truly embraced much of the lore associated with the franchise.

Favorite Halo: Not sure, I have only played parts of HALO: CE and HALO Infinite.

Favorite Video Game: PUBG, HALO: CE

Other Interests: Reading, Anime, Gaming

Favorite Food: Pizza is number one, but I am a foodie and enjoy lots of foods!

Favorite Band: I don't have one, but I like several. I have been a fan of Metallica for years. Lately, I have been listening to several tracks from Really Slow Motion - their track Deadwood plays in mind a lot when I watch Master Chief do the impossible.

Favorite Movie(s): Big Trouble in Little China, LOTR Trilogy, The Last Samurai

What do you hope to learn here?: Everything I can regarding how to build the best spartan armor that I can. Currently, I have several pepakura files downloaded and purchased pepakura designer software. In addition, I have started purchasing equipment and materials to start a foam armor build. Lastly, I have been watching lots of Youtube tutorials to get some ideas of where to start my build. Any recommendations on tutorials would be appreciated. Currently, I am deciding between developing a mark IV or a mark VI gen III set of armor.

Have you built/made a costume before?: Nope, this will be a first. I have had the interest for a long time and finally decided to start some new hobbies. The creation of some spartan armor will be a long time in the making.

Do you belong to any other costume communities? If so, which one(s)?: No, this is a first.

Other: Thanks for letting me be a part of the community - I typically go by Subzero on the net.

Hello All! Our former Introduce Yourself thread has grown to a massive 421 pages so it is time to lock that one down and start fresh!

First of all - welcome to all of our new family! We want to know all about you, but let's start with these few questions!

Hey Friends!

My name is Natalie, people call me Nat, I am referred to by some gamer friends as MrsTopHatt (since my husbands gamer tag is SirTopHamHatt and myn is MrsTopHamHatt) and as an artist my name is GerriGene (which has its own unique story)

Profession? Student?: I have a normal job; working with a maintenance company doing admin work to dispatch contractors to fix broken things in rental homes.

Age: 26
Favorite Hobby: I am an artist, I paint mainly portraits but I have painted many other things. I have painted and met some celebrities to have them autograph the paintings like Stan Lee, Mark Hamill, Jason Mamoa, Chuck Norris, Peter Mayhew, Peter Capaldi, David Tennant and more
Favorite part of Halo: I grew up in a PlayStation family so I unfortunately was late to the halo party. I have been playing through all the games with my husband and the story line is just indescribably beautiful and amazing. Always with the goosbumps.
Favorite Halo: Halo Reach - ODST story line - again - just amazing.
Favorite Video Game: I am so basic.. Im sorry. Its Skyrim
Other Interests: I was an elite/pro athlete running obstacle course races. I am currently pregnant but I cant wait to get back into it! I have built deadric armor out of cardstock and I am currently building halo armor to look like Church from Red vs Blue, Mandalorian armor in the colors of grey and yellow for the meaning of remembrance and mourning a lost loved one, ODST armor and clone commando armor for my husband from a 3d printer.
Favorite Food: this is a really hard question for a pregnant person.... I love lasagna fritta - its like fried lasagna noodles with alfredo sauce on the bottom and marinara on top.
Favorite Band: I love Linkin Park. They are just so timeless. I jammed to them when I was 5 and I jam to them still now.
Favorite Movie(s): Accepted - the only time you see Justin Long be a decent actor. And Role Models because Paul Rudds sarcasm.
What do you hope to learn here?: I am excited to show off my armor and art and see others, I have a huge community of cosplay builders with my pepakura but now we are building with the 3d printer and I hope to find a new community to get advise and give advise on builds and art
Have you built/made a costume before?: my full suit of deadric armor from Skyrim yes.
Do you belong to any other costume communities? If so, which one(s)?: not particularly. I am still in my pepakura facebook page because I still have advise to give from my experience and I love to see others work but I dont think I will be building with pepakura anymore now that we have 3d printers. It is still hard work dont get me wrong but building from pages of cardstock is definitely harder.
Other: I know this is a halo page so I will try to keep my posts relevant more to my halo build but I am super excited to show off my other work! I attached my daedric armor build because its the only full build I have at the moment :)
