I'm sure when you finish that, several people here will buy.

Favorite Hobby: Anything that fly's!
Favorite part of halo: Spartans, Of course!
Favorite Halo: Halo Anniversary, Brought back memory's.
Favorite Video Game: Metal Gear Solid, But I have many favorites.
Favorite Food: Chicken Fried Steak
Favorite Band: Anything Upbeat, I'm not that picky.

Well I've been thinking about this for years, but im just now where I feel I could spend the funds to build a full suit. I have NO idea where to start! I've seen tons of stuff about printing out your armor and going from there, but that's where this forum comes in. I think im going to shoot for a Halo 2 model, those are whats always impressed me the most. Anyway I look forward to hearing from everyone. I think I'll start with the helm first.

Also I'm surprised with the age in this noob room post. 12-15.... Not that im old, but im older than that lol. If there is anyone in the Oklahoma area, Love to meet up and see how your doing, maybe become friends. We fully plan on going to the Wizard world comic con this year suited up also!

Name: Jason, or JR
Profession: Marketing
Age: 25
Favorite Hobby: Parkour, boarding (snow, surf, long, you-name-it)
Favorite part of halo: Scout Spartans. Jun is BA. (Just about to start a Reach Scout build!)
Favorite Halo: Halo 1 and Reach, so far. 1 was my first real fps.
Favorite Video Game: Halo and Assassin's Creed series.
Favorite Food: It's food. Pretty much anything.
Favorite Band: Switchfoot, AVA, Three Days Grace. I love all of them pretty equally.

I have also been loving the idea of building a suit for years, but haven't had the confidence or resources to start one... But that's about to change! As I mentioned, I'm shooting for a Reach Scout build, out of foam. (Possible exception for the helmet I might go fiberglass for that.) Other than reading about other people's builds on this forum, I'm a complete noob, so hopefully it goes well! If anyone has any suggestions on what to start with, I'd love to hear them! Shooting for the finished piece to be showcased at DragonCon in ATL in August.

Nice to meet everyone! I'm entirely new to the world of replica armor/costume making, but it looks like it's a great community to be a part of.

I'm hoping I'll be able to merge my love of gaming, building, and engineering into a successful (and well documented) costuming exercise here. Thanks in advance for all the tips I'll receive.
