    For the body suit you can also go with a spandex or lycra unitard. They take to painting very well, aren't very hot, are very breathable and are comfortable. It doesn't look as "skin" like as latex, but with a good paintjob it will look pretty damn good.

    My Halloween super budget build COMPLETE!

    Costume was a huge hit at the contest at the bar here! Everyone loved it, even though I kept inadvertently blinding them with the tri laser as I looked around! I ended up getting first place in the contest and won myself $100! When they announced that the Predator costume had won, I jumped up...

    My Halloween super budget build COMPLETE!

    Thanks for the compliments everyone! I wore it to my friends comic store today and waved at traffic for about an hour. He was giving out candy and comics to trick or treaters so I decided to help lure people in. I got a lot of honks and waves from passers by and a few people even stopped to...

    My Halloween super budget build!

    Well the suits all done! Here's some pics! I got the tri lasers hooked up in the Bio, but you can't see them that well in the one pic. I'll take more pics tomorrow in the dark so the lasers show! Got a completed suit thread now at http://www.thehunterslair.com/index.php?showtopic=14652 Let...

    My Halloween super budget build COMPLETE!

    Hello everyone! I've been working on a Predator costume for Halloween since August. It's super cheaply made. All in all cost me about $100. Most of the parts we're scavenged or donated. All except the mask and unitard that I painted up for the skin. Here's my thread from the "work in progress...

    Looks really good! The skin came out great! Did you have any trouble painting it?

    My Halloween super budget build!

    Did some more painting on the skin today. Also stitched together the 3 separate parts that make up my fishnet suit. Tossed it all on along with the hands to see how it looks. Here it is. Still waiting for my Rubies mask to show up so I can work on that. Should be here tomorrow or Thursday...

    My Halloween super budget build!

    Well after going back on Amazon, I found another Rubies mask for the same price, sadly the shipping is $30 for 2 day shipping! I called Amazon and bitched some more and got a $30 gift credit to my account. I can't use it for the mask, because it's a "3rd party seller" on Amazon, but I will make...

    My Halloween super budget build!

    Well ****. Just got an email from Amazon telling me my crappy Rubies mask won't be coming because the order was canceled due to it being out of stock. Now, I wouldn't be as upset if they had told me it was out of stock a WEEK AGO when I ordered it. I might not even be mad if I hadn't called...

    My Halloween super budget build!

    Good advice guys! I picked up some fake glue on nails yesterday from a drug store near here. Also found some rubber witch fingers at a Halloween store too. Bought them as well. I'll spend a few hours later today messing with them, see if I can get something to work. I'll post pics of whatever I...

    Halloween budget build

    Get krylon paint. That usually sticks to just about anything. I used it on some rubber and plexiglass when I did a gambit costume a few years back. Gotta keep it somewhere warm and dry while it cures though, and use several mist coats instead of 1 or 2 wet coats, it will dry much faster that...

    My Halloween super budget build!

    Yeah thats what I was planning on, but I cant find those things ANYWHERE! Which is insane, because I've seen them every halloween in every store since I was a little kid. The one year I need them, they're no where to be found!

    My Halloween super budget build!

    Well I started with kitchen gloves that I turned inside out and started painting. I was planning on adding talons to them as well. Got the idea from wolfsproject pred suit. Sadly I haven't be able to find anything to use as talons. Plus the painting base coat of paint I put on doesn't look right.

    My Halloween super budget build!

    Yeah I was thinking of trying that. The unitard is pretty skin tight, so it would probably work nicely. I have to cut up some foam today for the gauntlets anyway, so I will see if I can get some muscles going. With my girlfriend working on the skin suit, my last major hurdles are the feet...

    My Halloween super budget build!

    Girlfriend did some more painting on the skin today while I watched the Star Trek movie. It's coming along really well I think. Wish I had time to make a duct tape mannequin, but I don't. Therefor I have to wear it while she paints on it. Kinda funny, but seems to be working! Let me know what...
