hello my name is Wyatt Gibson
i work in an insurance office and im going to school for Forensics science
I'm 23
My favorite hobby is anything i can do with my hands weather it be building an armor set or working on something
my favorite part of halo is the enormous lore behind it there is something for everyone.
my favorite halo is a tie between reach and infinite i love the armor customization and story of reach and i love the open world feeling you get from infinite as well as the more heartful story.
Reach has to be my favorite i love how your spartan follows you through campaign as well as multiplayer it makes it feel more personal.
my other interest include anything outdoorsy i love the river and swimming and really anything that brings good summer vibes.
As far as food goes i love anything i can take on the go but a good back yard BBQ is always top of the list.
My favorite movie or movies is anything that makes you really think and second guess what's really going on or just think in general i loved interstellar the way that it makes you understand even the most complex ideas of the movie are amazing.
i hope to learn to sharpen my armor making skills they are a bit rough still but they are past beginner i think well god i hope haha and also join a costume committee that is active and always on the go i attend as many conventions as a i possibly can through the year and its absolutely the highlight of my life !

Oops...I made a first post without introducing myself, here goes.

My name is Denise and I am a Project Coordinator. My favorite hobby for many years has been costuming, but recently I have gotten obsessed with making handbags. Halo 4 is my favorite game. I don't like playing much with others because I am so bad at it but I still love playing the game. Blasphemy I know but my favorite video games are the Tomb Raider series.

I have made many, many costumes. Including Storm Trooper, Boosh, Female Tuskin Raider, full sized Wookie, Mandoshawan from Fifth Element, Chamberlain from Dark Crystal and many more.

I look forward to building costume from Halo and getting to know all you wonderful people.
