My son, like most kids, plays Halo.  I’m a PE teacher so being active is my thing until I had to have emergency back surgery to fix a blown out disc.  I have A.D.D. (attention deficit disorder) so sitting and resting are really hard for me.

After surgery I was told I’d need 3 months to heal and couldn’t lift over 5 pounds.  What was I going to do with myself?  I found myself on the internet a lot and saw people made their own Halo costumes and showed my son and of course he asked if I could build him one.

Since I couldn’t really do much because of my back and I was off work I started working on the costume.  I Took pictures from the game and a ton of trail and error to get things right.
