Hey Matt!

Glad to have ya in southern!

We've got a nice contingent of folks in the Matthews/Charlotte area about an hour south of you.

I'd love to make it up to Galaxy Raleigh as well (I'm assuming that's what you're talking about. Dragon is in Atlanta).

What are you working on making?

About me: I've been 3d printing props since September of 2023 but just earlier this year is when I got into halo props.
I've so far finished building a halo 3 odst and plan to make a mark vii build. I've only been to 1 con, the Huntsville Comic and Pop Culture Expo.

Hey Chris!

Your chief build looks fantastic!

Did you get to meet all the other Southern regiment folks who attended Huntsville Expo?

I love how your ODST build came out. Iove the color combinations!
 
I met a couple, but I only wore Chief on Sunday, since I was already committed to being Mando on Saturday. I did get to be in every photo op with Steve Downes and Jen Taylor that day, so that was fun.
Sweet!

I look forward to seeing your build in person some day!

edit:

Also, once you become a member of Southern, we do have the magic iron battalion down in Alabama and we'd love to have you there!

I'll be happy to join! I'm also working on joining a couple other costume clubs at the moment, to expand my nerd network. Next convention I'm definitely going to is DragonCon. Might have one or two pop up between now and then.

Nice!

It's a bit of a read, but if you're wanting to be more involved in the 405th, I highly recommend reading the Mantle. 405th Costuming Club Mantle

The mantle contains all of the details that you need to know about participating in the 405th!

Much appreciated! I've actually already read through it. First thing I do whenever I look at joining a new group. Avoids me asking any repetitive questions and gives a good idea of what the group's about.

I'm a costumer with a background in film and an aspiring animal behaviourist. My other hobbies and interests include freediving, horse riding, archery, and falconry.
I go where the wind takes me, so I travel to cons all over the country. My biggest local con is DragonCon, so you're likely to see me there.

Hey Sam! welcome to Southern!

I'm glad we got to meet in person at C2 this year! Also, I'm going to have to ask about falconry next time we talk. That sounds fascinating.

I guess I would have to say black and white. Life drain/gain seems to be my thing. How about yourself?

It used to be a straight green deck, but more recently I’ve been having fun with a five color.
