Hello folks, just wanted to share my build photos of my first Predator suit that I wore at a recent XMAS-TOYCON here in the Philippines.
My son named it SERPENT PREDATOR, it does resembles a serpent in a way so I named it that.

Most patterns I also got here and was so glad to be a member of this awesome community!

I used mostly just rubber sheets on my build, a cheap and sturdy material that is available here...

attached 2 rca (female) jacks on the left temple for the wiring of the bio-helmet laser & lights controls.

lastly attached the 3 lasers on the right temple of the mask and gluing it on a bicycle helmet.

also with the use of a glue-gun attached the rubber hoses to the bicycle helmet. also added the dread locks that I also engraved predator symbols on them.

was so overwhelmed with the vast varieties of plasma canons but went ahead with the one from P2, which would be appropriate for my Serpent Predator suit.

used rubber sheet and plastic straws (one used on kids balloon parties here) for the tubing.

my blade gauntlet is just rubber powered and the blades are made of 1/2" x 2" wood that I have sculpted.

painted the edges chrome and the inner with silver to create that sharp effect.

on the chestbuster skull I added plastic wire insulation to create the effect. also used plastic straws again for the teeth.

Thats pretty cool, looks more samauri to me but still that is one awesome build. A very unique predator you have created my friend. Nice.

@ Hunter-Hunted: Thanks, yes I was suppose to make it a samurai and my son even suggested me to make a katana with lights of symbols etched on the blade. :D

Andre de Jong: Thanks, yes I made the bio myself out of rubber sheet.


This was my other suit where I experimented on the kind of materials that I'll use. it's not really a predator but human, inspired from Noland's predator suit.
I also made the bio, from a bicycle helmet and used cardboard and epoxy (it was heavy!)

Gone but not forgotten.
That's a great looking set of armor! I love the skulls too, very creative. The paint up is fantastic.

An Amazing job! I love the fact you built so much of this by yourself using ready materials. You have a great eye for detail! Did you have to heat the plastic sheeting to make it stay in place?

Thanks :D
I used rubber sheets only, wish I had plastic sheets at hand :( . I heated the rubber sheet with just a hairdryer & a disposable lighter to make them stay (curved) in place.

I really like the darkness of the suit. It gives me an AVP3 game feel (not that I've played it) mixed with a Noland. Well done! (y)

As for the plastic, I think you've done so well with the rubber that plastic may not improve your constume. :cool:

I wouldent of expected your armor to be rubber sheeted material. It looks very much like a fine gritted plastic. Very 'flawless' might I add. Congrats on the build! It looks fantastic!

Rubber sheets? = foamies?
Don't know, since I bought it from a shoe maker shop here and they called it rubber sheet.
Just wanted to answer.. I don't actually know if it is.. But based on my researches, It has the same texture and characteristics..I think the only difference is the size and shape.. Cause here in our country (Philippines) rubber / foamies are bought in rolls and it has different thickness and softness.. On the other country, I think it is bought per sheet or slices and it only has one type right? So yeah, Whatever it is, For me its fun to work with and it is very handy XD
