Hey all you hunters,

Newbe Paul from Connecticut here. I finally decided to get on with it and get started on building my own AVP Predator armor. I just bought the 4' by 8' sheet of sintra and in the next few days I shall be get on with the work. I will be taking and sharing pix along the journey.

Sounds good!!! I started off by trying an AVP costume, but I've gotten lazy, so it's gonna be unique. I'm also making mine from cardboard and paper mache. But good luck dude!! I look forward to seeing pics!

1/8th is what I used. I'm in the middle of making my armor as well if either of you need any assistance or suggestions let me know. And good luck guys!

I did get the 1\8" thickness, its easier to work with and adding a "second layer" isn't hard to do if some extra thickness is needed in an area. As I learned from costume making in the "legion/garrison", take your time. Measure twice and cut once.

Well the sintra for the shoulder bells, biceps, midsection, thighs and groin armor is cut. Quite fun stuff to work with. Molding and painting on Monday, hopefully pix as well. "Stay thirsty my friends".

Sintra and fomies are going to give you the best budget quality imo. I used fomies for last years and latex and foamies this year. Creating a custom look for this year

I used 1/4 for the shoulder bells I constructed, pics are in one of my posts....I liked the thicker look, and it formed just about as easy as the thin stuff with a heat gun...
