What do you hope to learn here?: I'm hoping to learn cool skills and talents to help me build my first Halo Spartan Armor, and hopefully learn skills that can be translated into other aspects of everyday living
Have you built/made a costume before?: Costume yes, but definitely very low budget and effort. I'm hoping to make something to really challenge myself, as I'm able to
Do you belong to any other costume communities?: Nope, not as of this time at least
Other: Full time University Student, so can't promise I'll be super active at this time. However, I'm hoping to stick around for the long haul and get to know some cool people, who can teach me new things, that I can share with others in turn! Try to be optomistic, and avoid the demons plaguing my mind. My first Halo game I played was Halo 4, the first one I owned was Halo 5 (I now own that, Infinite, and the Master Chief collection). After getting further into Halo content, I've come to the decision to play all the Halo games on Legendary difficulty, many of these games having never played before. Maybe will consider going back on a completionist run-through in the future, but for now just regretting my stubbornness, lol

Do you belong to any other costume communities? If so, which one(s)?: No
Other: I began my ODST jouney 12 years ago with Pepakura, that was a cheap armor but i was proud of it ! Recently i tried to make a new armor, printed in 3D, better than my old crappy thing which was destroyed during my differents relocations. I love Star Wars, I love Halo so i made an ODST armor with some Jedi features, like the jedi logo on the torso or the lightsaber (which is pretty cool).

Have you built or made a costume before: Nope
Do you belong to any other costume communities? If so, which one(s)?: No.
Other: I mysteriously ended up with an Xbox and Halo in 2001 and was a welcome escape throughout high school, up until halo 4 when i kind of drifted away from the franchise. The Halo series on paramount plus as well as the realization that there is more to life than just working a ton of overtime to "win" the pick sheet has led to me investing in myself. Part of that is, apparently, fulfilling a wish ive had since I was 11 year old of wearing armor like that. Ive also started to replay the games in the Master Chief collection on PC and stream with my friends as I die, repeatedly, and take a shot each time. Brings back good memories of friends long past and the nonsense we got up to.

Favorite Part of Halo: Halo 4 Progression, and the "DESIGN" of everything in the universe.

First Name: Chesney

Student: 3D Modeling and Design, VCAD

Age: 30

Favorite Hobby: Gaming and crafting! I own pretty much every gaming console one can think of, stretching back into the 80s. I primarily play on Xbox these days(Halo 3 turned me into an achievement hoe), but I am also quite fond of restoring and modding Game Boys. I'm not just limited to video games though, as I am an avid MtG player with aspirations of trying DnD. I also love to weave paracord, draw, sew, build models and Legos, and just recently got into 3D printing.

Favorite part of Halo: The atmosphere and story components are in my opinion unparalleled by most other games. Forge and custom games with friends are also amazing.

Favorite Halo: Halo 3/ODST

Favorite Video Game: Ark: Survival Evolved

Other Interests: I am a self confessed dinosaur nut and biology nerd, I consider myself an amateur scientist. I've worked in museums as an interpreter and loved every second of it. I also like to volunteer whenever possible with a foundation for children with skin diseases, as I was one of those kids and want to give back to my community.

Favorite Food: the Cheeseburger pizza from Two Guys and a Pizza Place in my hometown. Mayo on pizza is a life changing experience.

Favorite Band: Carly Rae Jepsen. I will not apologize.

Favorite Movie(s): Jurassic Park/ World, Avatar, District 9

What do you hope to learn here?: I hope to learn how to better my skills and make my props the best they can be. I take pride in my work, but I am always open to outside opinions and learning new techniques and skillsets.

Have you built/made a costume before?: Yes! I have made two, although both were rather low effort: I did a Jurassic Park veterinarian for Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo 2013, and later did Jimmy Buffet as the Margarita Guy from Jurassic World for CCEE 2016.

Do you belong to any other costume communities? If so, which one(s)?: I'm not sure if it is actually a costume community, but I just recently joined a local chapter of a Star Trek fan community, the USS Chinook. My brother has been with them for a while and I required expert help finalizing some details on a Phaser I am building for myself.

Other: I've always wanted to make halo props ever since I was a kid, and cab fondly recall cutting an SMG out of a piece of plywood with my grandfather's jigsaw. Now that I can print my own pieces that are far more accurate than grampas garage could provide, I hope to one day have my own armoury wall of prop weapons from my favorite stories. Currently all I have are a pair of foam Energy Swords, a plasma rifle from Fallout 4 and a lightsaber. However, I have nearly completed a Halo: CE Magnum and a Star Trek Assault Phaser and am just starting an ODST SMG. Hoping to start on an ODST suit soon after.

Ranger

New Member
First Name: Andrew but I go by Ranger (gamertag of 10yrs not actually military)
Profession? Student?: Railroad Laborer
Age: 24? Harder to remember each year
Favorite Hobbies: Gaming, hiking, fishing, hunting, kayaking, shooting, reading.
Favorite part of Halo: Definitely the armor and the atmosphere of it.
Favorite Halo: Reach will always be my favorite because of the customization but ODSTs soundtrack holds my heart.
Favorite Video Game: Battlefield 4 and a couple others I always go back to because the AAA Formulas died after the mid 2010s.
Favorite Food: I'd die without pizza
Favorite Band: Anything rock and roll. No new music. Mid 2000s everything I loved dries up.
Favorite Movie(s): Spaceballs, Star Wars, Starship Troopers, Battlestar Galactica to name a few. Definitely not the abomination of Halo made by paramount.
What do you hope to learn here?: How to make or buy my own ODST suit. Only 5' 8" and I have no illusions of trying to pull off a 7ft spartan. Wouldn't feel right to me to portray how massive and bigger than life they were depicted in the games and books.
Have you built/made a costume before?: Nope this will be my first foray probably down a rabbit hole like when I got my first gun
Do you belong to any other costume communities? If so, which one(s)?: Nope. Keep eyeing the 501st and Imperial surplus. Clone armor seems simple enough with how many kits are out there.

Other: currently working 70hrs a week so not a whole lot of spare time. Managed to somehow get out of work at 7 on Saturday so I could stop by a costume party at my local brewery that had a lobster truck there. After eating that tho everybody thought I was there as a construction worker and they weren't wrong lol. Saw tons of awesome costumes and my mom even did 2. She made herself into Limu Emu and my dad was Doug. Then she went to work yesterday as an awesome Cat in the Hat.
Just made me realize I've been thinking about an ODST or Clone Trooper outfit for years now. But maybe I should finally pull the trigger. Lord knows I'm socking away enough money right now with no time to spend it.
But hey if ya don't know me from all that yet I'm sure I'll be around a while.

Other Interests: gaming, volleyball, art
Favorite Food: potatoes of any style
Favorite Band: Fake Type
Favorite Movie(s): not a huge movie enjoyer
What do you hope to learn here?: I'm hoping to get some tips on costume making and see what techniques people use
