Sophomore year in highschool I was in art and I was bored so I started to draw predator. This girl comes up and asks "is that alien vs predator?" I sigh and say "no its just predator"... Double fail right there..
Guys, you do not have to buy everything... I know of people who scavenge old couches for upholstery and find really good deals online for other materials. 20 bucks is small but its easily possible if you hand craft it all yourself. On a homemade suit you are not going to spend a ton of cash...
