    • That's the Grifball I made

      3 years ago

      Cadet2386

      In the "Of All Time" picture being held by Caleb.



      I made that Grifball and mailed it RoosterTeeth in 2014.

      Cool to know they still have it and it survived the move to Stage 5.

    • Without my mother Caboose might not be going to RTX next weekend.

      That is my Mother

      My mother, and with just under 24 hours notice she dropped everything, gave up her weekend plans, to come and watch my back at the minor league Baseball for the Team who was hosting “Halo Night” and had requested Halo costumers come and be available for pictures and meet and greets. She reminded everyone, myself included, why in those 13 years with the 501st she earned the nickname “TK-Mommy.” A consummate Handler, firm but fair, while still being polite, who watched over not only her son’s, but every Trooper’s back.

      People on this might know of the trend that I tend to be a magnet for horrible interactions with the public in costume. Someone always wants to hit, smack, punch, or strike me, and someone always wants to pull, tug, jostle, or steal a piece of my costume.

      I fear what might have happened had she not been there and I had faced the crowd on my own. I know she intercepted quite a few prying hands, but in a manner that was not overly aggressive. A librarian, she knows how to handle a disruptive child, and 13 years of handling taught which kids to keep an eye on and even preemptively teach about the trend of “Volunteer Costume-ism.”

      She watched my back, kept my costume intact and in good shape so that I can take it to RTX next weekend. I know the overlap here is small, but, if you are excited to see someone in a Caboose costume at RTX next weekend, and it’s me, or you see someone posting on Tumblr or Facebook about being excited about that, give a small thanks to my mom.

    • Caboose does the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

      I was called out specifically as Caboose by my brother, Lonewolf, (https://www.facebook.com/lonewolf1183customs)

      I made my donation at ALSA.org, and I challenge all of you to get involved, some way, some how. Do an Ice Bucket Challenge to help raise awareness for ALS, make a donation at ALSA.org, or just get out there and support any charity group or cause you want. I just challenge you to get involved, some way, some how. One of my favorite things over the years has been being able to use costuming to help support a variety of charities, and I love seeing Fandoms become forces for good.

      So get out there and do some good!

    • Red Vs Blue/Halo Cosplay Meet Up

      in Forums > Red Vs Blue/Halo Cosplay Meet Up | Follow this topic

      Cadet2386

      I saw that there was a thread for a RWBY cosplay meet up,( roosterteeth.com/forum/viewTopic.php?id=225572... ), and I knew that there were other people planning on cosplaying Red Vs Blue specific characters, and that there would most likely be some other Halo cosplayers even if they weren’t meant to be RvB characters, so I was wondering, would anyone want to have a meet up? Do a photoshoot, talk shop/share build methods, techniques, and tips?

        Thanks. I really feel like the Classic Mark V doesn't get the love it deserves. There are hardly any of them out there, and in fact, my Caboose and my friend's Donut are the only sets of Vacuum formed Mark V armor in the world.

        My Armor is vacuum formed Styrene Plastic. The Vacuum forming process is really only conducive to the Combat Evolved styled Mark V. Pepakura with Fiberglass or EVA Foam is the preferred method for any other version of MJOLNIR. Send me a message and I can get you some links to some tutorials that can get you started making your own armor.

      Hi!
      Are you super excited for RTX?

      • PandaM66

        6 years ago

        I hope this year it goes better, with more people attending it might not. And I think RT is becoming a "fad" with younger people that don't really understand the purpose :/ I didn't know about what happened at the panel, I actually couldn't get into any of the panels last year....there were too many people and get would stay in the rooms all day.
        Well, I still have my picture with Caboose and Geoffry :)
        If you go next year and need a body guard, I would be more than willing to volunteer! :P

        6 years ago

        I got into every convention these days, sadly, expecting to have my armor hit, smacked, and punched by attendees, I just suppose I expected...better of the RT community towards a RvB costumer. I was very mistaken. Lost track of the times people smacked the back of my helmet, slapped my shoulder armor, punched my shoulders, or walked up to me and prodded me in the chest with their fingers. Not to mention the incredibly reprehensible behavior towards my brothers and sister in the local Texas Garrison of the 501st Legion by some of the Halo costumers. Threatening to "crash" or disrupt their panel and table display, making fun of them, and so on. Just becuase they were there representing the 501st, a Star Wars costuming organization and these people for some reason though that "Halo is better than Star Wars" and that gave them the right to be complete jerks to people they don't even know who spend countless hours every year volunteering their time with a wide range of charitable organizations and raising millions of dollars for said charity organizations world wide, every year.

        I'm sorry :/ and i felt the same way about how some people acted...I tried to ignore it and just hang out with my few friends. Well I hope that it is better this year! I know I enjoyed meeting caboose :)

        Check out the 405th. It's a Halo costuming site. The most popular methods for making Halo armor, pepakura with cardstock and fiberglass, and modified pep with EVA Foam are very beginner friendly. And everyone has to start somewhere. You won't know until you try, and the only way to get better is to keep at it. If you really want armor, you can make it work. I'll offer any tips or advice I can give.

        The armor has gone through three overhauls and rebuilds, over the course of almost four years now. It's gone from fiberglass armor, to it's current state of vacuum formed plastic.
