    SirPalesAlot

    Name - Matt Morrow

    Age - 26

    Location - Phenix City AL / Columbus GA

    Occupation - CAD/CAM Programming and Design

    About me - I've always had a thing for building stuff. I joined the site after looking for some Halo costumes online way back when. When I saw Adam's suit back then I knew I had to make one of my own. It's been a few years since then, and here I am still lacking in the suit department lol. I have a handful of hobbies that take up my time, but I'm trying to get more into working on costumes.


    Favorite Conventions (where we can most likely meet up with you) - I haven't been to many conventions so I can't say I have a favorite yet. I live in close proximity to Atlanta/Montgomery/Birmingham so any contentions in those areas would be easy to attend.

    Occupations: Call Center Rep, Gamer
    About you: Hello! I am Austin, Character's name is Authmion, and my call sign is ARES. (see above) I am just starting out in the costuming aspect of the halo universe, and have been following the 405th's website for a couple of years. Even though I dont have any posts. :p My favorite weapon loadout in Halo is a DMR and a Sniper rifle, but when I eventually get to making my suit, I will include a magnum, because one can never have enough weapons :3 I plan on building mine, as well as some friends of mine a suit, so that maybe we can start out own little squad within the unit. (long term goal...lol) I enjoy video games (obviously...) LARPing, Cosplay, computers, and hanging out. Live in Wilmington.
    Favorite Conventions: I have been to IchibanCon in Charlotte and Animazement in Raleigh, and will probably go to any other con I can within a fairly decent driving radius.

    Name: J. Rex Martens
    Age: 30
    Location: Arlington, VA close to DC
    Occupation: Retail Management/Cycle Gear manager
    About me: Been working on a Mk VI build off and on for 3 years, have had to scrap more pieces than I care to admit, lol. Just recently got married, and wont have a lot of time or spac3 to work on it for a little bit yet. However, I've been a lurker here for much longer than I've been a member, and have built many a piece of pep just to build up the skills and keep myself decent at it, even if my scaling needs work. Feel free to ask any questions. As I work in the motorcycle industry, I have access to helmet liners either really cheap or free, so if anyone needs one, let me know.

    Cons: primarily just Otakon. Will be trying to head to more, but retail management is horrible to try and get time off.
