I have to ask, what drew you to join our little community if you are unfamiliar with Halo?

We are of course happy to have you, just curious.

Hi all, I'm making a new thread here as it's been over a year since I was active and I've also gender transitioned since then. If anyone could help me get in contact with a moderator I would greatly appreciate it-- I couldn't figure out how to do so for the life of me and I would like to get the old thread deleted to get rid of the incorrect info about myself. Now on to the fun part! :D

Name: Star
Profession: CDL Operator
Age: 26
Favorite Hobbies: Digital Art, Gaming, Cosplay, Writing, etc
Favorite part of Halo: Military paraphernalia design honestly. From armor to weapons to vehicles-it's all really intriguing.
Favorite Halo Game: Halo 3: ODST, closely tied with H2A
Favorite Video Game: Mass Effect Trilogy or Ark Survival Evolved (I really like dinosaurs :p )
Other Interests: Film, Palentology
Favorite Food: Steak is always a good choice but I cook a mean citrus chicken.
Favorite Bands: Starset- they are honestly just on a whole 'nother level..., Glitch Mob definitely.
Favorite Movie(s): :| this is one of the toughest questions to answer. I can never narrow it down. I guess I'd have to go with Empire Strikes Back.

I'm a non-binary cosplayer, digital artist, and all around nerd. You can refer to me by my name or they/them! I'm definitely not new to cosplaying- I've been with the Star Wars groups for years now but have taken somewhat of a backseat on that while slowly building a 3rd Mandalorian. I've done a few costumes from different fandoms like Mass Effect but Star Wars keeps seeming to pull me back in haha. Finally picking back up (again) on my goal to make a Halo kit- which is an ODST that I started last year. Sadly covid hit right around that time and while I thankfully didn't get sick, it impacted my job a lot and that created stress that kept me from working on the kit. I tend not to be too active online and just blaze through the work-WIP threads are never my forte (lol)- but I will do my best to try and update my thread as I progress. Hopefully this time I can see this through to the end. I did make a promise to a friend who went off to the army so I can't let them down. :)
