I'm a Nerd. And a Dork. And possibly a Geek as well. My whole life has been about video games and toys and comics and movies and. . .
So when a friend makes a suit of Halo armor out of stiffened cardboard? Holy shit, YES!
PJ's mom has a studio in the building I'm in. A mutual friend told me that PJ likes to make costumes out of folded cardboard so I contacted him to see what he had been up to. When he emailed me with a snapshot of him in his Halo armor, I instantly had to make this a personal photo series, and PJ was absolutely up for it.
I wanted to keep the gear light - I only had three lenses and one light with me (a wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens and my Petzval)
Here are a bunch of the final shots. I'm really really happy with how these came out.
To see more images from the session, check out the series as I've posted it over on Flickr.
And, for those who have played Halo online, I simply had to do this because I might never get the chance to do it in real-life ever again:
Teabagged in real life. A personal geek accomplishment ;)
Here are a few behind-the-scenes shots:
Thanks again to Jeff for getting a bunch of BTS stuff.
