    Ben Cobb
    Location: Centerville, OH
    Costuming since: 2009, I was 12!
    About me: I'm an 18 year old High School Senior, I joined the 405th when I was in the 7th grade and have really frequented the site ever since! I've seen members come and go and I very rarely post now, but trust me...I am watching...
    I started costuming when I was 12 and thought "I'd like to wear Chief's armor!" two years later I was sporting a custom Gears of War armor :confused Anyway after a year since joining I released my Reach files I had been working on (I hate every single one of them now, so many things I have learned modeling wise since I made those!) Then I made the Gears suit and then a custom Mark VI (both just...horrible.) and finally I made a Master Chief, a Halo 4 one to be specific! It was after that that I tackled making two suits at the same time, Agent York and Carolina from Red vs Blue, HUGE SUCCESS! Some of the best work I've ever put into anything. I was able to sell the York but unfortunately I no longer have the Carolina (left it at an ex-girlfriend's house...yay...) Feeling dejected after that I stopped working on suits for awhile, but after 5 months of no work I picked up my ODST suit again and finished it. I'm not necessarily extremely happy with it but it still looks fantastic! That is the last thing I have worked on, I do plan on a Mass Effect suit very soon though...
    When not costuming I work tech and act at my High School theatre, our productions rival professional theatre and is one of the best high school theatre's in the state of Ohio! I will be attending Miami University (Ohio) next year, majoring in Theatre and minoring in Interactive Media Studies.
    So thats me! Now you know a bit more about Rhinoc!
    Favorite Cons: Wizard World Ohio, (maybe RTX next year!)
    I apologize for the crummy quality of photos...

    Gears (oh how i dont like this one...)

    Mark VI (poorly constructed honestly, but its alright! Thats my brother in the photo)

    The Chief (I was actually pretty happy with this guy, forearms a bit small but it survived pretty well!)

    York and Carolina (my pride and joy, I know it sounds horrible but I miss the suit more than the girl, long story)

    ODST Codename THESPIS (I dont think there is an photo of the finished suit, i'll do some digging. This guy actually got to be scanned at Doppelgänger Labs, the first company to bring their 3d scanning and printing tech to the public. Instead of 5 minutes or more to scan it takes 12 seconds and the statue comes out 1/9 size and made of ceramic. Its pretty cool, they brought me in as the first cosplayer to use it and I got to do it free!)

  6. murishani047


    Name: Austin Karl, aka Spartan James Sierra-247

    Location: Kirksville, MO!

    Costuming since: I've been following this site for a year or two before I joined, but only just started building in December 2014.

    About me: I'm a CS major at Truman State University. I enjoy playing and making video games, I also do some Web Development. I have a YouTube channel and Twitter, both usernames murishani047. Fun fact if you don't know, murishani means Bounty Hunter in Huttese. Also, the 47 is an inside joke with me and my friends, because then I can use AK47 as a clan tag in games and it's funny because it is actually my initials.

    Favorite Cons: Haven't been to any yet! Hope to change that soon.

    Costumes/Props: Here's my old pep build (left) and my current build (right):



    Also made a Captain America Shield out of a Dish 500 satellite:

    What's upEverybody,

    Name: David Nicklas

    Location: Pingree Grove, Illinois

    Age/ statues: I was born in 1983 and I'm currently engaged and my fiancé barely tolerates my armor building and me talking about my armor.

    Occupation: Security Officer

    Armor: Halo Reach Commander with Jetpack

    About: I'm a very simple individual and I'm really not that exciting.

    Hobbies: I love video games and just recently got into the Halo series, I watch the Walking Dead, Big Bang Theory and Netflix. I've been working on my armor a lot so my hobby list was cut down to a very short list.

    This is my first armor build and its been a fun learning process. I help out others with there builds and enjoy doing it. I cant wait to see you guys at C2E2 in April.

    Thank you for accepting my request to join this regiment and I will see you guys later.

  8. Lemonade


    Name: Rachel Chojnacki

    Location: Chicago, IL

    Costuming since:
    I started cosplaying in 2009, but didn't make my suit until 2012.

    About me:
    I'm 23, and I work as a graphic designer for a retail real estate company in Chicago. Even though I'm just starting out on the forums, I already know a good chunk of you through attending numerous cons throughout the year. I made my suit specifically to be Red vs Blue's Grif, which is why it's an yellowish-orange.

    Favorite Cons:
    I'm at every major con in Chicago, including C2E2, Wizard World, and ACen, and I've also added Youmacon onto my list of must-attends, as there are so many fantastic Michigan-based Spartans. Youmacon might be my favorite con. I also have plans to make the drive down to Georgia for Dragoncon, which will be my first time attending. I'm genuinely excited to meet all the new faces underneath the unfamiliar helmets of the Southern Regiment.

    Since I'm super bored of the standard "now pose and look cool" pictures of armor, I thought I'd show you my armor doing stuff you don't normally see armor do.

    Here's me drinking a juice box.

    Here I am playing an arcade game.

    Now I'm listening to Story Time with Cortana in my local Barnes & Noble 6.

    Now I'm trying on dresses with Gio. He think's it would look better in green.

    Here you can see me relaxing on a couch contemplating the great questions of life.

    For example, were those the droids I was looking for?

    My friend Alyssa and I recreating The Titanic. Look Jack, I'm flying!

    And this is when I summoned an army of kids to take down my blue counterpart.
    this is awesome.jpg

    Oh, who's that, you say? That's just Alan Tudyk, aka Wash from Firefly, photobombing us at Wizard World.

    And here's a photo of my friend's dog for no reason.

    Name: Christopher
    Location:Flushing, MI
    Costuming Since: 2008
    About Me: Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. Most of my costumes are thread and cloth, but tried a bit of pepakura. The only problem I've been having making armor is that I can't get the resin mixes right.
    Favorite Con: I haven't really been to one. There is a small convention in Flint (Koyo fest) that I've been to. Won a prize with my "Assassin's Creed" costume.

    I really wanted to make my ODST three years back, but weather and resin difficulties set me back.
    These are Hugh Holder's models that I got from here

    My "Assassin's Creed"

    One that was inspired by the claw from "Prototype" but not based on.
