Roll Call!

RXO
405th Regiment Officer
Name: Brandon/Buck
Location: Chicago
Costuming since: Just this year! Went all in with a Sean Bradley kit for Halo Outpost Discovery in Chicago.
About me: Always wanted to get into cosplay, and the announcement of Outpost Discovery gave me my reason. In my spare time, I play Halo and various other games on both PC and Xbox. Find me on twitter @ManhoodMagic.
Favorite Cons: Halo Outpost Discovery in Chicago was my first, but I'll definitely be around the cons that happen in Rosemont in the future.
Costumes/Props: My Bradley kit build, which I affectionately refer to as ODST Buck, but not that one. The SMG is the only part that I didn't have any part in creating, shoutout to StarJeff3DWorkshop on that one.
The other ODST Buck with Steve and Jen!
I was standing behind you if I am correct when I went to give the thank you's and congrats to the 343i team on the Chicago run!

Name: Danielle (SSG Spall)
Location: Perrysburg, OH
Costuming since: 2010
About me: Greenhouse grower by day, freelance artist and costuming/props enthusiast by night.
Favorite Cons: Ohayocon was my first con, so it's been my home for a while. But I met my boyfriend at TAGFest (may it rest in peace as it no longer exists), so that's a close second. Youmacon is always a blast and I'm looking forward to my very first DragonCon this year!
Costumes/Props: Oh boy, I've got a few: Yuna (FFX), Bubblehead Nurse (Silent Hill), Rao (Okami), Luna (Harry Potter), Genderbent 10th Doctor (Doctor Who), White Mage (Final Fantasy), BlackFire (Teen Titans), Alien Queen armor (OC from Aliens), SSG Spall (Halo Reach/Halo Wars), Marine (Reach). As for props, I've built Cloud's Buster Blade, Rau's Lightning Sword, Yuna's Staff, a White Mage Staff, and a few miscellaneous headdresses. I like to dabble in my own designs.

Looking forward to meeting you all and I'm so excited to be here!

Hey all! Maybe it's just cause my summer is coming to an end or cause I'm about to start school again, but I am READY and roaring to try and get my cosplays up and going!

Name: Austin or Troop
Location: KCMO, Kansas and Missouri border
Costuming since: I've been following a lot of cosplayers for about 3 years but still haven't built my own yet due to financial struggles
About me: Currently a college student for Music but an avid Halo fan; r/ODST moderator; wanna be competitive Halo 5 player; wanna be Halo speedrunner
Favorite Cons: Kansas City Planet Comic-Con, RTX, Halo Outpost Discovery if they ever do anything like this again.
Costumes/Props: My PLANS currently include: ODST workout clothes, ODST Armor (Probably H2 era or Reach), UNSC Officer Uniform (cosplaying Lieutenant Austen from Thursday War cause of the name similarities), Military Police helmet from Halo Reach with a few technological niceties


I'm always up to listen to anybody who needs anything or wants to spit ball some ideas off of me!

Location: Mount Pleasant, MI

Costuming since: I started back around 2013

About me: I'm a costume and prop designer originally from Fort Myers, Florida, but I'm currently going to Central Michigan University studying Biology. While I was in my teenage years I attended an art school where my focus was with sculpture and 3-D media, I've had a couple of my pieces shown in the Salvador Dali museum of art & I've also made a couple pieces that were used in some films.

Favorite Cons: You can find me at pretty much any con that's near by the Michigan or Florida area, although I may start traveling around to further cons.

Costumes/Props: I don't have any of my professionally taken photos saved to my laptop, but here are a few that I have saved on my imgur!

Welcome aboard the Midwest, Xeno! I absolutely love the look of your Storm Rifle! is that all polystyrene? Superb job!

And the needles in your ODST chest are a wonderful touch. Even if you are a few shy of a super combine;)

Thanks mate! Happy to be aboard! It is indeed polystyrene, however it is a special blend i had to purchase online, it is super tough and durable, i highly recommend using it if you plan of building a weapon any time soon! And thank you, i wanted to have something a little original in my piece so i figured needler shards were the way to go!

Yooo! Another Minnesotan. We need to find all active MN Spartans and get together. Do something similar to ColFork’s Michigan Misfits. We could be The Minne-Snowtans. Lol

Minnespartans :p
Are you planning on going to Galaxycon? That’s my current goal date for my build, might even try to get it done for Fallcon, on Oct 4 at the fairgrounds
Ha ha love your word over mine. I could try to go one day for Galaxycon. The whole weekend might be hard to pull. I'll keep in touch. You on FB or Twitter?
