I've been a little quiet on the board lately. But I am still around. Its good to see most people are still around. Been writing a book which I finished and copyrighted. Currently waiting for the publishing date. I am working on my second book at the moment. I hope I get a chance to speak with some old names and faces.<br />
<br />
As for predator stuff I have been working on my second suit. I bought some dreads from Biohunter. I'm waiting to buy another bio to fit the mask that I bought from inkmonster. I started to airbrush it for Halloween this year.<br />

My name is Ty. I am from a small town in Nebraska. I have been checking out &quot;The Hunter's Lair&quot; for a bit now. I am a big fan so i finally decided to join. My trade is building construction, but I work at a library now. I don't have much experience with art or making smaller things but i am eager to learn. Any helpful advise when trying to create your own Predator I am willing to listen. <br />
<br />
Did film and stunt work when i was a little younger, but the quieter life seems to be working out well. I study Japanese in my free time. Japan is the only country I have been to outside of America, but i have been there 11 times. Would like to visit a different country in the future.<br />
<br />
A walk down memory lane.<br />

I'm just a small town guy. Always nice to meet new people. I think this forum has a good collection of different people. I look forward to getting to know everyone.<br />
<br />
I picked up costume making as a hobby. My first predator suit is complete. I wore it the first time to work Friday, Oct 22 2010. I turned a few heads. I got some feedback from others and learned some things that i want to improve. I used a lot of the huntorials created by the other members of the forum. Your references has been extremely helpful. I'm grateful. Will continue moving forward and I'll see where it takes me. will post my progress.<br />
