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.
