Hello everyone. I had a quick question about the actual body suit for the predator costume. I've seen a cheap method to make the body suit by buying the Mr. Incredible suit and painting it over with the liquid latex. However, that suit is a little to muscular for the predator so my question is are you able to purchase a full body surfer wet suit and attach some thin foam "muscles" and paint over it with latex? or will the material of the wet suit and the latex cause a bad reaction??

really your only limited to your skill and imagination bro u would be blowed how people slam stuff together from around the
house and it looks killer , i dont think it would be a bad reaction the only thing is that i would paint it on a bust or maniiquin
to hold the shape the latex might effect the wet suits stretchy ness in theory , but tthats my theory i could be completely wrong never used wetsuit materail but i think it would work

No problem. I mean the only problem I see you might having is the latex not sticking to the wet suit which is no big of a deal. Just make sure that the suit is made out of one piece of material such as this one will work more in your favor.

I used a Flash costume and cut my muscles from foam and it worked out great. I liked this way better than when I did my first which was a Mr. I suit. Check my thread, hope it helps My thread

I must say Jaded that you definitely cut foam muscles like a mad man lol. Very cool I might have to learn how to do that or just try on getting one that is already made up. It will have to depend.
