One of the most popular posts of last year was about Shawn Thorsson’s amazing Red vs. Blue Master Chief Halo costumes. We got to see some of the excitement these costumes generate firsthand, especially in kids, when Shawn (and friends) showed off the costumes at last Saturday’s Open MAKE/Young Makers program at the Exploratorium. You can see more pics and read Shawn’s brief account of the experience in his blog post below.
