Okay, this is my first Predator costume and since I don't have enough money to afford the supplies needed to make a perfect costume out of latex, I will be making it out of foam, cardboard, and any other supplies that I can get for cheap.

So this is my progress so far:

This is my Bio Helmet made from cardboard and plaster. (NOTE: I wanted a "Darth Vader" type Helmet)

Next I made the under mask using r1a2s3's Huntorial.

It took me a whole day to make and I was very happy with the results , but when i compared it to the Bio Helmet, it was bigger than the Helmet, so now I'll have to remake the helmet

Next I made the upper body armor out of cardboard using vinmanmac's AVP Predator Templates:

Wish me luck on finishing it!!

Nice use of materials. If your planning on not taking the bio off then you dont have to worry about the many face details since you wont see it. Keep going, you are on a roll.

Some reason my 1st post in this topic was deleted? Love the foam mask dude, just wish r1a2s3 would make a better a huntorial, maybe something step by step in detail. Otherwise great costume in the making so far.

I am glad that I got my helmet done, but I'm not satisfied with the "flat top." :cry:
If you have an idea on how to fix this I would like to know! ;)

Could you wet the cardboard a little bit then press a bowl up from underneath and let it dry bulged up? No idea if that would work or not but I know cardboard holds it shape after it drys.

I also started on another Predator weapon for my arsenal: The Glaive!

This is what I'm going to have my Glaive look like:

100_1859.JPG

The blade is made from a Megaraptor claw:

I chose Megaraptor because his claw is about 36cm!!! :D

Tomorrow I hope to get more progress on my Glaive!!

Okay after 10 months of a Hiatus :) , I am finally working on this again! :)
Here is my progress from April, 2010 to today
First, I finished the Glaive:

I made the handle using a rope wrapped around the middle and ended with two wood circles.
I carved the claws out of wood and painted to look like rock.

The next thing I did was scrapped the head idea. I'm just going to wear the helmet. So I took my first bio and sanded it:
Before:

After:

100_1799.JPG


100_2646.JPG


I love the way this came out!

The next thing I did was made two Guadlets out of a Pringles can and cardboard
I also paper-mached the cannon:

The last thing I did was buy (so far) 2 packages of backer rods and made several dredlocks out of them:
