    Hello everyone,

    have lurking on here for a couple of months now, looking in on all your costume threads gathering ideas and looking at new horizons etc and then I though would make a thread of my work. Here is a few snaps of my budget built AVP predator costume. It mounted on a manikin made from anything I could find i.e. cardboard boxes, pipes etc

    Sorry lol

    It ended up costing about £150-£200 (and alot of blood, sweat and tears lol) and around about 3-4 month construction time.

    Thanks buddy

    Now that is VERY cool :) especially for what you paid.
    And it looks much better when worn as opposed to being on the mannequin :D

    Thanks man, had an awesome time building this. Still gotta tweak it a lil and change a few this i.e. make a latex suit and change the gauntlet blades etc. Will also be sculpting my own mask in the new year. Just making improvements to get more screen accurate lol

    Thanks again for the great feedback, it very appreciated.

    Hey everyone,

    Been along time since I update this thread. My pred suit has now gone under major reconstruction and had a face lift. Everything has been upgrade and made fully by yours truly (excluding the dreads)

    I have also turned this custom and it is now called the Cobra Predator

    Let me know what you guys think

    Thanks to both of you

    The mask was sculpted, moulded and cast by myself as were the feet. The mask was based on a p2 and then went and customized it a tad for an authentic feel. The neck seal I got in a trade at the start of the year.... not sure who the maker is.... I did consider going with a latex suit on this but the day the above pic was taken it was 31 degrees C and I fried in just material. I am considering making a latex torso via the Mr I approach that you have done, but it will be done as a 2 part suit (so torso and legs seperate) but then again I may just sculpt some - eventualy :lol

    That looks sweet. What clay did you use to sculpt it? WED?

    I do all my sculpts in oil-based clay. Does dry out and is 100% reusable.

    Thanks for the tip on the Mr I suit. If I ever get my * into gear will be walking that line lol
