Roll Call!


Keeping in line with the other regiments, we will use this thread to introduce ourselves. I'll admit, I took the format from the Aussies, lol. Feel free to add more or less if you like!

Name: Put what your preferred name is here, whether it's a real name or a moniker.
Location: Give a general geographic region to help find others near you!
Costuming since: When did you start costuming/building?
About me: Tell us a little about yourself. Twitter profile or autobiography.
Favorite Cons: What cons are we likely to see you at?
Costumes/Props: Share some of your work, completed or in-progress.


Name: Matthew aka Colonel Fork
Location: Kalamazoo, Michigan(if you look at the back of your left hand, I'm in the lower left corner near your wrist)
Costuming since: I kinda got started around this time in 2011
About me: I work, and I come home, and occasionally get the chance to hang out with friends. In fact, just had a nice casual meet up with HaloGoddess and thorn696 this past Sunday. I really enjoy aviation and the history of it. My favorite period of aviation was the war planes of WWII. If I were to pick a favorite aircraft from the era, it'd either be the F4F Wildcat or the ME109.
Favorite Cons: So far I've attended 4 different conventions, most of them in the Detroit area, but I've been to Anime Central in Chicago, YoumaCon and Midwest Media Expo in downtown Detroit and Motor City Comic Con in Novi, MI. I mostly prefer staying in MI, as it's much easier for me to get around.
Costumes/Props: So far my Reach armor consists of both parts made by me with friends and a few commissioned parts. I'm currently trying my hand at building a Reach DMR out of foam and PVC pipe.

About me: Well, there isn't a whole lot. I'm an artist, I like to play video games and I am OBSESSED with Halo! XD LOL I work 7 days a week so I can take care of my baby Master Chief. ^_^ I do like cars, a lot of your older muscle cars, namely mustangs, but I do like the classics. There are a few exotic cars that I like as well. I have this odd, small obsession with the Dodge Viper. I want one of those cars SO bad, but it can NOT be older than a 95'. I am not TOO crazy about the new body style. I guess that is about it. XD
Favorite Cons: I went to my FIRST and ONLY con about 4 years ago and that was the Motor City Comic Con. I didn't dress up or anything at the time since I was just getting into the prop building thing. I just wanted to go to one because I had just found out that they even have them here in michigan! XD
Costumes/Props: Well, here is my latest build: It's going to be very slow, but I want to go all out on this one. :)

Sr Member
Name: Jason aka Chief (on my airsoft team)
Location: Springfield, IL
Costuming since: Started when I was a kid, but started Halo costuming in 2009
About me: Graduated high school in 1997 and entered the US Navy after that summer. I served a six year enlistment as an electronics technician, 4 1/2 of which I was stationed aboard a Spruance class destroyer. After I was honorably discharged, I started college. During college, I got married and have since fathered two daughters. I graduated college in 2012 with my Master of Architecture degree and am now working on my internship at a small architecture firm in order to get registered as a licensed architect. Lately, my hobbies have consisted mainly of airsoft events and airsoft gun teching (fixing/improving guns for other people). I still have a few Halo-related builds going on, but they're going very slowly.
Favorite con: I have yet to attend a convention, but I hope to some day.

Master Builder

Name: Matthew
Location: Lake county, Michigan.
Costuming since: About a year ago.
About me: Worked with my dad at our family business (making custom cabinetry and furniture) ever since I was old enough to do anything, almost learned everything to run it with my younger brother, until we lost it all to a fire two years ago. Since then I have been a volunteer cadet firefighter. Other than that, I have learned many trades, including wiring, both AC and DC, repairing just about anything, currently learning airbrushing, working on cars, and many more. Hobbies include snowboarding and airsoft right now.

I have loved games ever since I was a little kid. Halo was the first FPS I had ever played. I had played it back when I was 7 at my uncles house and was really hooked. Latter It was Halo CE (custom edition) that really got me into serious 3d modeling and also modding. We all grew up without TV, just computers, so we are all computer wizes.

I am hoping to become a professional 3d modeler and over all game developer in the time to come.
Favorite con: Havent been to any yet, but would supper love to go to one.
Costumes/props: Halo 3 EOD helmet in progress:
