Hi To All!
My name is André de Jong and i'm Dutch.

Well i am here around for a few days and always had plans to build a Pred suit.

I have seen alot of Predator suits here for idea's

On google found i a tutorial:
http://www.xs-chaos.co.uk/wolf/projects/pr...it_tutorial.pdf

I will use this one a start. (Base)

So i start to collect materials
http://cgi.ebay.nl/Alien-Predator-bio-helm...=item27b65cdf12

http://cgi.ebay.nl/NEW-PREDATOR-HALLOWEEN-...=item588add13c7

http://cgi.ebay.com/Black-Predator-Overhea...=item563ff63a0e

And i bought a "rambo" body and other stuff.

Where i live, i could't find plastic sheets and i have plans to make the Armor out of cardboard. (paper)
Most of you use latex but that is for my 2 diffelcult too use @ the moment.

Greetings André

You can also use fun foam (foamies) for your armor as well. I have worked with it alot. An its a less of a pain to work with then cardboard. I love foamies

I would generally try to avoid using acrylic on anything that bends. Unless you mixed prosaide in with it. Otherwise your paint is going to crack an chip like old nail polish =S Otherwise not a bad paint up! =)

Interesting build bro! How could your dad almost throw that awesome deer skin away!?!?!? I would have cried!!! Alls I can think about when I look at it is how awesome that would be for a Saxon or Viking outfit! I used some skins on my pred suit man. Interested to see what you do with it.

How much do you think you've invested so far into your build?
