Man it's been a minute since I've been on forums but let's DO THIS. *cracks knuckles*

First Name: Tyler
Profession?: Aircraft Fuel Systems Technician Supervisor for the USAF
Age: 28
Favorite Hobby: Definitely have the most fun with fellow costumers. Everyone tends to be themselves and allow me to do the same.

Favorite part of Halo: The memories.

Favorite Halo: Halo 3

Favorite Video Game: StarFox 64

Other Interests: Cars, Percussion

Favorite Food: Chicken wings. Hands down. Buffalo style. Lots of sauce. Get lost in the sauce.

Favorite Band: I listen to such a variety that's tough to pin down.

Favorite Movie(s): Star Wars and a huge list surely no one will read right?

What do you hope to learn here?: New techniques and a different way of doing business. I'm very interested in learning what does and doesn't work with Halo costuming and how my current kit and prop knowledge can be expounded upon.

Have you built/made a costume before?: *insert Dr. Who "OH YES" gif here*

Do you belong to any other costume communities? If so, which one(s)?: I am an 8 year member of the 501st Legion, TK-5492. I started with the Japanese Garrison before moving to the Georgia Garrison.

Other: I'll say basically what I said on FB: Like many of you, Halo has been a part of my life since day one with the OG Xbox and CE. I haven't branched out much from Star Wars costuming and props but finally at a place in life where I'm starting to do so. I've known about the 405th for years and recently reached out (quite by fortunate mistake) to an admin who turned out to be Angela Mash, the CO! She was immediately welcoming and very helpful and I feel really motivated to become a part of what appears to be another incredibly talented community. I have a lot more I feel like I could say and feel I have some good experience to bring to the table. For now, I'll leave it at that and I look forward to working with and hopefully doing events with many of you soon. It's humbling to see the quality and talent here so I can't wait to learn from you all and valuably contribute as well. Thanks!
Air force huh? If I might as wherenare you stationed at? I'm am Aircrew Flight Equipment technician

Master Chief has always been my favorite part of Halo.

The Bungie Halo games are all my favorite, but I thoroughly enjoy what 343 has done.

This will be my first time building a costume, but I’m not in a hurry and plan to take things one
step at a time.

Hi everyone! My name is Joe and I'm finally joining the forum. I've actually started a Halo cosplay on two different occasions (the earliest being about five years ago), but due to life circumstances, the only component I still have is a helmet that I'll probably wind up redoing. I'm in grad school now, and I'm planning to use my very limited time to finally build a full set of Reach armor out of foam.

First Name: Joe
Profession? Student?: grad student studying architecture in Denver, and working part-time to pay for school
Age: 24
Favorite Hobby: rock climbing
Favorite part of Halo: the lore!!
Favorite Halo: Reach
Favorite Video Game: also Reach, but favorite non-Halo game is probably Skyrim
Other Interests: art, playing music, cocktails, cooking, anything outdoors
Favorite Food: cheese enchiladas
Favorite Band: Weezer
Favorite Movie: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
What do you hope to learn here?: I want to elevate my craft and make some rad cosplays
Have you built/made a costume before?: A few, the most significant one being a set of Mandalorian armor (from foam, so not good enough for the Mercs)
Do you belong to any other costume communities? I have an account on Mandalorian Mercs, but not a costume that meets their CRL's

Hey everyone!

First name: Danny, but I go by Zealand
Profession: Aircraft mechanic, general aviation
Age: 33
Favorite hobby: Building things, particularly model airplanes
Favorite part of Halo: Tough one... Maybe the complicated state of affairs involving the colonies just before first contact with the Covenant. Very thought-provoking. Or the sense of impending doom throughout Reach.
Favorite Halo: Reach, followed closely by CE
Favorite videogame: Skyrim
Other interests: Oil/acrylic painting, papercraft models, sci-fi/fantasy novels, and D&D (still a beginner)
Favorite food: Depends on my mood, but often pizza
Favorite band: Also depends on my mood. Lately, I've been on a Seven/Like A Storm/Killswitch Engage kick
Favorite movies: Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spaceballs (Who could've known?), and Avatar
What do you hope to learn here? I hope to learn to work with EVA foam, create mirrored visors, and paint realistic metallic finishes. I also hope to connect with others who like building and creating things.
Have you made/built a costume before? Not unless we're counting Halloween costumes. But I'm currently gearing up to start my first cosplay build: my MJOLNIR Mk V from Reach, complete with MA37 and M6B.
Do you belong to other costume communities? If so, which one(s)? No, I'm completely new to the scene.
Other: I've always been interested in cosplay and prop building, but never really got around to trying it until now. I'd always had some excuse not to, but over time I realized that if I don't make time for it, I'll never get to do it. So here I am, finally getting out of my own way, and I'm chomping at the bit to build something cool!
