Introduce Yourself


New Member
Hello, I’m JICR-B148. FYI: JICR is my full name but in acronyms. I’m personally intrigued with the Halo Franchise, much so, I’ve known the franchise since Halo CE. Although at the time, I was under the acceptable age to be playing a mature rated game. I’ve read most of the Halo Novels, and I’m currently reading Glasslands. I was first introduced to Pepakura about 5 years ago, but not in the way you may expected it to be. At the time, my cousin was familiar with simple 3D modelling, and in this case, she created medium-sized boxes for small goods, and I was helping her build these boxes. One day, she suddenly convinced me to look up on Google: Halo Pepakura. From then on, around the year 2010, I researched more about Pepakura. I have about 3 years’ worth of experience on Pepakura and unfold editing. I hope this information suits the interest of the 405th at better understanding who I am and what I’m here for. If you have any questions, please state your responses onto my profile. Thank you, the community of the 405th.

Hi all, I am new to cosplay and costuming, but I love the Halo costumes that I've seen. My son really wants me to make him a costume, so I will be asking a lot of questions, and hopefully will be able to help the next new costumer.

Greetings all! I coulda sworn I did this already, but it looks like that's not the here goes!

Name: Chris Sharp
Age: 34
Profession: Security with Banner Health
Location: Mesa, AZ
Favorite Hobby: Video Games, costuming
Favorite part of halo: The Armor, The weapons & The WARTHOG!!!
Favorite Halo: Reach
Favorite Video Game: Monster Hunter, Pokemon, Final Fantasy, Force Unleashed (1 & 2)
Favorite Food: Yes
Favorite Band: Linkin Park, Godsmack, Metallica, pretty much anything except country & I LOVE edm
Favorite movie: Anything Star Wars, Stargate, Forward Unto Dawn...lots more, but WAY too many to name
Favorite TV show: Clone Wars, SG1, Atlantis, Firefly...again, LOTS more, too many to name
Other: Been doing costuming since Nov 2006. Got my start in Predator costuming/props, but there wasn't enough going on & I lost interest pretty quick.

Back in 2008/2009, a friend I had made in the Predator community directed me to the Star Wars costuming groups & I started working on a Custom Mandalorian. In May 2010, I got official with the Mandalorian Mercs & started trooping with them & soon became an officer within the club. In December of 2010, I ordered & recieved a set of Star Wars Republic Commando armor & began putting it together. Fast forward to a couple weeks ago: my Republic Commando is complete (after alot of internal debate & additional work not originally planned) & I am now an official member with both the 501st & Rebel Legion.

The Star Wars groups will always be my home, but I (like most of my friends) am not a one trick pony & my geek ranges all over the various genres. I have several costumes on my "to do list" & they include a couple more Star Wars kits, anime & video game kits & various movie costumes. My current project is an Stargate Atlantis off world costume

Wow, I guess I rambled on a bit there at the end didn't I? Hope you won't hold that against me :p For those interested, below are pics of my Star Wars costumes:


I'm looking forward to starting my journey into the Halo universe & making some friends here.

Name: chrisy
Profession: student for life (at least it feels that way)
Age: 24
Favorite Hobbies: comics/reading/video games/piano/martial arts/astronomy

Favorite part of halo: Actually I'm going to go with the soundtracks. Listening to CE brings such nostalgia, and it makes for epic study music. ODST soundtrack was also fantastic. (Marty? MAARRRTYYY I MISS YOU)
...And my favourite part is probably many scenes in The Fall of Reach!

Favorite Halo: ....1. Though I've enjoyed 4 more than most would admit apparently. Reach was also quite nice, and ODST was very refreshing.

Other Interests: I'm big into brains. Literally. (Neuroanatomy lab assistant)
Favorite Band: Too many. But I will say: listen to Maggot Brain by the Funkadelics in a quiet room with your eyes closed.

Dream cosplays:
Crossdress: Assassin's Creed Ezio (Brotherhood/Revelations), Loki, Joker (comic book). Other: Halo mjolnir (variety), Hexidecimal (ReBoot)

I've wanted to cosplay as a spartan for YEARS, but it seems such a far away inconceivable idea. Partially because I wanted to do it proper as a male (but being a female of smaller stature makes it a wee bit hard to pull of that 7ft bulk--then again I'm sure anyone looks small next to most mjolnir), and partially out of just sheer ignorance in how to start. But for the former I'm opening up to the idea of doing a female spartan. Which seems to be getting more popular anyway! As for the latter...well that's why I'm here! I look forward from learning from all of you! :D
