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!
Hey! I am also in the USAF. Awesome to see other service members out there!

Sweet, how's civie life! Lol, I've been in for just past 12. I was a jet troop on the 15's at Lakenheath for 4 years. Now I work in airfield management.
Not to be a jerk, but this conversation feels like it needs to move to a different part of the forum. Also, I believe there is a direct message system in place for personal conversations.
