I introduced myself in the larger forum introduction thread, but I figured I should also put myself in front of the more local group.
Where your located: Huntsville Al
Occupation: SLS Main Engine Systems Engineer
About you: I'm a long time Halo fan and a recent transplant to the South from New York. I started work on my ODST build back in high school and finally "finished" it last year by finishing the helmet. I work mostly with EVA foam for the armor and I've molded and 3D printed a Halo 4ish sniper and an M6C/SOCOM. I was drawn to the ODST because I like the idea of regular people doing everything they can in the face of extinction.
Favorite Conventions: DragonCon and any local Huntsville Con.
I hope to be at DC this year, but the Artemis 1 launch is scheduled for the same week, so I might be busy launching stuff into space that week instead.

Occupation:electrician and Raft Guide but that’s always changing!
About me: I got into prop building back in 2013 and have been off and on since. Help a lot of buddies get started into this and have other cosplays from mandalorian to uncharted and have several unfinished projects. Love getting down to some competitive halo here and there
Favorite conventions: Dragoncon no question! Mega con was also a good time. The rest I’ve been to were all to small to mention
Location: Murfreesboro, TN
Occupation: Aircraft Mechanic
About Me: I've been a silent member of this forum since around 2015 when I made my first ODST helmet. Then life got in the way and my account got auto deleted because I never posted anything. I've never actually completed any of the projects I've started, but that is the goal this year. I got to go to DragonCon this year and got some great ideas. My goal is to have a costume for next year. I mostly work with pepakura and composites, but I am trying to learn other skills too.

About you: Been here from the *very* start (my old account, excuse the cringe, they were hard times), the Grumbo days, was never awfully active. I hope to actually start building some cool stuff now that I'm getting settled.

Roll Call | Southern Regiment Name: Calburn [S-024] Age: Classified [Just check the Bio] Where your located: Louisa, VA Occupations: Student, for now... About you: I've been active since last year, I drink unhealthy amounts of coffee, I'm trying to make time for the hobby which is hard because I'm constantly getting behind on my studies, and I spend way too much time modding Fallout 4. Favorite Conventions: I have only ever attended one convention, but I'll probably try attending Galaxycon in Richmond once I get my first suit finished. However, I've also heard that Dragoncon is also popular.
About you: I've been making Cosplay stuff for a long time and a lurker here for a while, but oy recently decided to step out of the shadows on this site. Can't wait to get out there and meet some fellow members!
Occupation: Electrical / Electronic Engineer, 3D Printing / Prop Making
About you : Grew up playing Halo and got inspiration to start building my first suit after watching a few Spartans at Halo 3's midnight release at a local GameStop. I met my first few ODSTs at Tampa Bay Comic Con back in 2016 and got the word about the 405th Division. I didn't meat anyone officially until the next year at Pensacon over in Pensacola, Florida and met brkiker and his team. Since then, I've been welcomed with open arms but have been shy about being here on the main page. I've been working on 3D printing and making my props/ armor look and feel as if they just came right out of the video game. Can't wait to meet fellow members to hang out and Cons and get to know everyone and help too!
Favorite Conventions: Pensacon,Pensacola, FL , MobiCon, Mobile, AL & Tampa Bay Comic Con, Tampa Bay, FL

About: Craftwork has become a hobby rather quickly, and that's expanded into cosplay to where I have a cosplay account now. I spend a lot of time outside of work making parts for cosplay now. Also plan to make other armors beyond MJOLNIR in time, but starting with two sets of MJOLNIR armor first.
Favorite Conventions: I make Katsucon as consistently as I can manage, hopefully making more than just Katsu from this year on.
