    yes there is a way young gabri..... you must superglue with some hot glue on top at least 3 sangles (Small ones)... i would even sew the sangles to the EVA foam wich will make the hold pretty hard to break....
    Let me show you the clips you need to do with pictures......

    Greetings Yautja's of the universe! :D I bought from my friend Louis Hardy a very cool figurine of the City Hunter (PREDATOR 2) it was un-open box. So I felt like a child and opened the box, because i will use this model for reference to my costume a little bit ....... colors , armor shapes etc....

    Greetings Yautja'S around the universe and Predatorium...here is a quick update :
    • I have continued the Wrist Gauntlet Plasma Canon and Bomb with Monster Clay....
    • I have done the right foot of Jir'Xar with the Japanese Soft Synthetic Clay....
    • I repaired the hands with some latex
    • I need to make a EVA foam base for the feet of my predator wich will add 2 or 3 inches more to my height
    • I need to buy more Latex in order to make the Left foot
    • I need to buy 2 Gallons more of Mold Max 30 silicone for Jir'Xar Head molding
    • Someone told me to insert a plastic flexible container to drink some water and hydrate myself with a tube (When I wear my costume). I might insert it in the Fiberglass Backpack (Predator style of course).
    • I also will cheat a little bit by buying directly the already made Shoulder Plasma Canon wich i will integrate to my actual EVA foam armor chest piece........
    • I have to do the whole latex BodySuit or if i really have a lot of money do it in DragonSkin Silicone ..... (But this is IF i am rich enough lollllll) here is some pics of the progress... 2017_09_16_18_32_14_593.jpg 2017_09_16_18_32_38_609.jpg 2017_09_16_18_33_27_656.jpg 2017_09_16_18_33_43_171.jpg 2017_09_16_18_34_10_328.jpg

    Greetings Yautja's......the 2 feet are almost done and ready for Airbrushing .... I also continued to sculpt the Jir'Xar Wrist plasma canon gauntlet....the top of this canon and bomb will open in a simple mechanism but yet very deadly for the prey....hehehe.... 2017_09_19_03_51_26_484.jpg

    If i have something to say - i will say, and it always 100% true. You do really good, especially for first suit. Better? Hmm, for now - only pictures quality can be better.
