So as the current story arc comes to its close and I shift my focus to other projects, I decided to actually go forward with one of them. I joined the 405th Halo costuming community in the summer of 2015 and it has become a crazy important and exciting part of my life. I’ve mentioned it here and there but only recently have I began really merging my comic and cosplay hobbies.

As I work on my everlasting website rebuild, I figured it might be fun to come up with a blog of some sort to regularly keep up with on the website. When I started DairyBoy Comics, I did regularly post blogs entries but there wasn’t really a reason to. I said all I had to say about the comics themselves in the blog section of each page. An additional blog was redundant and I ultimately deleted all of them and just focused on the comic itself. But as my involvement with the 405th increased and I was thrown into the world of cosplay and armor building, I realized that that was something to talk about. That was something to share that I wouldn’t regularly get to discuss in my comic blog.

Many of my friends have cosplay personalities and maintain posts and pictures about their costuming adventures, so I figured it’d be fun to join in on it. The blog will always have a 405th Adventures comic. The post schedule is pretty much just when I have a subject worth blogging and making a comic about, but I will try for at least one per month.

This comic was a test run. It was a surprise for my friend Ben, the 405th’s fearless leader, for his birthday. It’s a good start and also shows off my favorite aspect of the 405th: it’s very much like being in a real episode of Red Vs Blue (and one time, we literally were in an episode of Red Vs Blue).

Whoever is playing Tucker in this image is SO INCREDIBLY SEXY THO.

One year with the 405th was full of many adventures and conversations worthy of a comic series, and so this comic was needed as my way of capturing those experiences. I hope my cosplay friends enjoy the comics, and for anyone who hasn’t gotten into cosplaying yet, I hope it inspires you to do so.
