Halo is a fictional universe. However, sometimes we catch sight of things in real life that remind us of our favorite science fiction video game franchise. This particular series, titled Halo in Real Life, showcases those very moments. Enjoy the subtle Halo references sometimes spotted when out and about in the real world, and if you have a picture you'd like to submit for possible future inclusion, send it to bsangel[at]halowaypoint.com!
So there are these people that come to Times Square every day, dressed up as different cartoon/game characters to take photos with tourists for tips. Recently the people who do this have been getting robbed at the end of their day, so this is where this picture comes in: The police have been dressing up as our favorite hero “Master Chief” and pretending to be out taking pictures for tips just like everyone else so they have a better opportunity to bust the individuals robbing these innocent people. I find it very honorable that the NYPD is doing this and I find it EXTREMELY cool that they chose the Master Chief as the costume of choice. So there it is, my Halo IRL photo!
