Hey everyone! So lately (before my military course started :p) i've been working on a predator costume tht fits my level of expertise and budget :( Im making a set for a human predator (been thinking of making a mini-series but we'll see how that goes). So far I've gotten a celtic bio from Green Earth because i dont know how to make the bios..yet, and i have half of the dreads done (Note: I will prob be getting rid of the black paint to turn it into an albino predator, duno yet). When I get home Ill be using some of the ideas that Ive seen on the Lair to help build the rest, starting with double wrist blades which are manually functional, then moving on to the armor or shoulder cannon. I hope you guys enjoy and Im glad to be a member of the Lair! Thanks :down:

Looks good man. Just few things I would like to say according to my exp. I used plasti-dip for the dreads like you have but they ended up breaking so I don't know what you used for your dreads but i hope they are stable and won't fall off. And what are you planning on doing for the costume and the mask. Mcguyvers Mr I tutorial is pretty helpful (http://www.thehunterslair.com/index.php?showtopic=4477) as I made my skin the same way but it may require some time as mine didn't turn out the way i expected cuz i had only 2 weeks to finish my costume. There are plenty of resources on here for the tutorials and the people who you can buy the parts from. Good luck with the expedition and let me tell you that it's a fun RIDE ;)) Keep us posted.

I ended up using Backer Rod and then spray painted it, the only problem is that the paint flakes off every now and then. I ended up sewing the backer rod to the custom hat (Sewed it to the front of the base ball cap for support). I have been looking around the site and I'm amazed at most of the costumes that I've seen here. Hopefully one day I can make that good of costume thou haha. Thanks for everything :D

So I haven't updated lately because school has caught on to me and haven't had time to work on the suit. And the second thing that I am going to share is a bit of sad news. I have to restart my dreads atm bc they are too far back from the helmet and theres a few inches of space between them and the bio helmet. When am I going to be able to do this? Idk, but sadly I won't be able to reach my goal of before Halloween which is a big friggen let down for me bc I'm really into this, but school isn't cheap and that comes first unfortunately. Hopefully I can come up with sum awesome concepts while im back to the dread stage, and I'll post asap. Good luck everyone and I hope everyone is doing good

I also did basically the samething you did with the dread cap I definitly feel your pain on how long it takes to sew them on one by one. I actually asked my g/f mom to teach me how to sew just for this purpose. as far as the paint flaking off I had the same problem but I switched to plasti dip (not the spray) and put it on with a sponge. It also is somewhat of a process b/c you cant do them all at once or they stick together as they dry so I just did a couple at a time.

Sounds good thanks, and yes flaking is a prob. I got taught on my BMQ how to sew :p "In the Navy.." lol. But for all those interested, I may be doing armor seen in the avp and predator omnibus' (recently started to collect them from amazon). And this year's costume design will be Joey Jordison from Slipknot (Jumpsuit version)
