  • About me: I started building my first suit in college so I could join up with some of my friends who were the crazy fans at football games. After I completed the suit I was hooked and wanted to make more costumes and props. So far I've made Mark IV armor, Kat's armor set and just started getting into sfx make-up, so I did Samara from Mass Effect. I love bringing characters to life and hanging with crazy costumed nerds at cons.

Hey everyone, I am Tom. I love the halo games, iron man movies, starwars. I live in yelm washington. I have a real rifle that would look awesome as master chiefs rifle. Anyone local to me? I am also a member of z.e.r.t. and my call sign there is X6545. Feel free to hit me up. I would love to create a masterchief armor for myself. But do not have anything other than my cellphone currently so if someone can give me a hand I'd appreciate It very much.

  • Building since: September 2009
  • About me: Been a fan of Bungie since Myth 2, Soulblighter. Halo 2 was the spark that started it all. My costuming interest didn't come in until Halo 3: ODST. I remember seeing video somewhere of Spartans waiting at the door for the midnight release of Halo 3: ODST. Since then, I have always wanted Halo armor for myself. When I'm not building armor, I usually play on my Xbox One, try and catch up on the latest episodes of Arrow and The Flash, and when I'm feeling it, exercising. I also do WWII re-enactments.
  • Favorite Cons: I have never been to a con before. If I were to go to one, they would probably be in the state of Washington and possibly Oregon.
  • Costumes/Props: Current project: Halo 3 Mark VI (in progress)
  • Future project: Halo 4/5 Armor



Name: TrooperJasher AKA Jade
Location: Alaska
Building since: 2007
About me:
I have been working on (it's never finished... always something to improve) a Mandalorian since '09, I became an official member of the Mercs in '11. I bought one of PJ's original molds (legacy V1 aka Y visor) and have been making molds and casting things for the last 2 years. I enjoy fishing and hunting... as well as eating the tasty meat from those activities...
Favorite Cons: Senshi con... Alaska sucks in this particular department
I've completed a few Mandalorians, and I've been commissioned for a (I honestly have no idea anymore) number of Mandalorian Costumes.
I started a Skyrim Whiterun Guard in December; this one is and has been a slow build due to the fact I am trying to use as many real materials as I can...

About Me:
I've been a Halo fan since the game came out back in 2001. Halo was the game my dad and I would play all of the time when I got out of school and we kept playing until my dad got tired of me beating him all of the time (I was 10). I read the books and drew Halo related pictures constantly through out middle school and high school and eventually ran across the 405th my Junior year in high school. I started my first suit (just a standard green Master chief suit from Halo 3) with much exuberance and my mother was concerned that I was obsessed. This was not really the case because I like making things and since I loved Halo at the time, it all seemed to fit together. I started this project on my own and it ended up being my Senior project my graduating year. I got an A+ on the assignment and I got to wear my suit around the school for a day. The attention I got was the most I had ever gotten in a school setting because I was one of the quiet kids who sat in the corner in the hallway scribbling on a drawing pad. The best part was no one knew who I was until I took my helmet off and the shock and awe in the revelation that I was a girl was astonishing.
After my first suit, I quickly moved onto my next suit (Agent Texas) and met Jeremie, Crystal, and Derek in my costuming journey. Together, we founded the Hood's Hellions, the Portland area 405th division of the Pacific Regiment. Nowadays, I work full time as a QA tester for Microsoft. As to what projects I am on, I cannot say, but it takes a lot of my time away from my costuming but I am still able to work on new projects from time to time. Currently, I have a Reach suit sitting on the back burner (I have some gauntlets done) and I am working on a fairly large project and will keep it a secret until Emerald City Comic Con later this month.

Favorite Cons:
Rose City Comic Con (Portland), Wizard World Comic Con (Portland), Emerald City Comic Con (Seattle), PAX Prime (Seattle)

Costumes/ Props:
H3 Master Chief, Agent Texas (Red vs Blue), Custom Reach Spartan (in progress), Nightingale (Skyrim), Nightingale Sword, Secret Project ECCC 2015

About me: This all started for me as wanting to have a more intricate Halloween costume back in 2013. I wanted to do a Master Chief build, but got seduced by the look of Iron Man instead. And in printing my first part I made it too big, and the next was rather small...but not for my kid. And the rest is history. I started my journey and began making an Iron woMan suit for her. And I enjoy doing pepakura more than foam just because it's a zen kind of thing for me.

I enjoy Halo because it's always been such an enjoyment to play. My oldest never really got into it, but my youngest likes it and we enjoy playing a few levels now and then, and just have a good time.

Favorite Cons: You'll more than likely spot me at ECCC. But won't be there til probably 2017 due to scheduling and finances.

Costumes/Props: As stated above, my work in progress is an Iron Man suit for my daughter, hence the "Iron WOman" name. I've still got a few things to sort out, but should have it ready for her by next year.
