Vebo1 Well i bought a Predator 1 bio helmet just yesterday casted in fiber glass resin (from Thailand)...I also have to order another batch of 30 dreads from Corey in about 2 - 3 weeks...I am still sculpting the torso ...I do not know if I am doing the armor too or just the body then still take my EVA foam armor. I really think the whole body suit makes a huge difference for the final looking of the costume. Also have to repair a lot of stuff on my costume to make it more realistic and easy to wear (y). I will also begin to sculpt another Yautja head mask .....I sold almost all my molds to a friend here on Predatorium. Now he knows how much efforts and time consuming a costume can be hehehehe :D....I have to animatronic my plasma Cannon as well..... Thanks Vebo1

Well at the end of the day it will be worth the blood sweat and tears to produce an awesome piece of art . Stay creative my friend .

Hey Vebo1! You work is freaking incredible! Did you have your cannon files up for sale yet? I will gladly pay a chunk of money to own those files. I have around 9 3D printers I'm about to fire up to work on my suit as well. I was hoping you can work something out with me? I, of course, would never share the files. Personal use only :) Looking forward to your progress!

Hey thanks eventually I will , but not right now . I wouldn’t even know how to price it because it was insanely expensive to both design it from an excellent 3D modeler and when it was printed from shapeways . I have the mines for sale on there , but still trying to figure a way to recoup without charging a atm and a leg .

If you dont mind Pm'ing me id love to come up with some way to help you? :) I'm just looking to help out as best I can before I dive in and eventually design it myself (if i end up having to) :p Im pretty sure there would be enough members on here who'd like to pay for the files and reimburse what you paid?

Love the bio work. What was the wiring for the lights to fade in and fade out? Would love to have a flash option set to a button :)

/*
 * PROJECT NAME: FadingLED

 * DESCRIPTION: A DEMONSTRATION FO USING ARDUINO INPUT (EXTERNAL PUSH BUTTON ON PIN 2 TO CONTROL AN OUTPUT (LED ON PIN 9)
 *
 * CREATED BY POVEL (DARKBLUEBIT.COM) IN 2016)

 //CONSTANT WON'T CHANGE THEIR VALUE
 const int buttonPin = 2;// The number of the pushbutton
 const int ledPin = 9; //led pin
 const int fadingDelay = 50;// speed of the led fade

 //variable will change: (higher value = slower )

 int buttonState = 0;
 boolean fadingState = false;

 void setup(){
  //initialize the led pin as an output
  pinMode(ledPin,OUTPUT);
  //initalize the push button pin
  pinMode(buttonPin, INPUT);
 }

 void loop(){
  buttonState = digitalRead (buttonPin);

//check whether the button was pressed
if (buttonState == HIGH){
  //check led status
  if (fadingState == false){
    // turn on the led
    for(int i=0; i <=255; i += 5){
      analogWrite(ledPin,i);
      delay(fadingDelay);
    }
  }else{
    // turn off the led

      analogWrite(ledPin,i);
      delay(fadingDelay);

  fadingState = ! fadingState;
}

Orange wire goes to pin 2 on the Uno
Red wire in the middle of the picture goes to pin 9 on the Uno.
The red (5v)and blue (Gnd)wires at the bottom left are 5v and Gnd to Uno. Sorry should have color match the wire to match breadboard. I know sloppy.470 ohm resistors

Crunch time . Started the painting process for the gauntlet and foam filling the cheap way , This actually fits super well and snug and fills all the proper spaces . I decided to cut out the hole for the dreads before attaching the foam to the mask, this will also give support when I attempt to paint it .
