    Being a new member here I have been doing a lot of research in the Huntorial section, and well, all over the entire site. This has got to be one of the best threads created for a newbie to get started in creating a skin. The pics and links posted has been an incredible source of knowledge and info gathering for me. This is definately the way for me to go. I hope to start my skin after my wedding in two months. Hopefully I will have money left over from it or talk my wife (wow, I'll have a wife!) into giving me some, LOL! She has been very supportive of all of my hobbies, some of which are not cheap, this will be a new one.

    Thanks to all those that have posted aditional links and info in here. I am really stoked to start my own. I do have a question. Are there any, um, slightly overweight Predators out there? I'm 5'11 and weigh about 230lbs. Not exactly slim waisted but not real big either. ;) I think my height combined with the Mr I suit will somewhat compensate for my uh, added girth........

    Thanks again and cheers!

    Hey, question, this is a very nice tutorial but could one use similar steps to make a female suit? Im thinking of using this method to create a skin of my own, It like it to be muscular too, but not sure a Mr. Incredible suit would be the best haha! Any ideas? Also could clay be used to add spikes and such along the back of the suit? Or would it not work well with laytex?

    Oh! One last question, could one substitute laytex for silicone?

    Wow! Thank you so much for putting this together I had seen some people just using a sharpie for the spots, way to time consuming for me. Those sponges should help so much! Great job on the suit I also love the string idea for the viens. Thanks again! :(

    I found this huntorial very helpful, and will be doing this for a skin.(I have started with armor and bought a termokk head) this suit will do until I can get a termokk torso.I like how this site has alot of budget stuff...I never would have guessed of using foamies and such....makes me feel like early ILM on star wars pre production,lol

    From the pictures it appears after a few layers of latex he cut the outer fabric, repostioned the muscle and then hot glued the fabric into the shape he wated. A little extra stuffing and then more latex to secure it all.

    If you can sew at all, I would suggest taking a wetsuit pattern and spandex to make a perfect fitting spandex suit. I am currently making foam muscles and mixing acrylic paints in my latex for coloration.

    Could anyone please tell me what adhesive would be best to attach the foam muscles to the spandex suit? Would hot glue work ok?

    No kidding! that was not only a lot of work to make the suit but also putting together the how to article. Great job! Can you guys take a look at some of the pics on my FB page here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Action-Author-David-W-Gray/182552348489395 and tell me how to make a suit for an actor to wear that looks awesome and realistic. The character is 7 ft tall and 400 lbs of muscle covered in various shades of black fur. Basically black fur with blacker stripes and spots. He also has a 7 ft prehensile tail and 3 inch retractable claws and some serious fangs that hide a 14 inch tongue. This Charatcter's name is BLOOD BATH and he likes all kinds of full automatic weapons and blowing stuff up. If you want to know more about the Character you can find the book here. http://sbpra.com/davidwgray/ and how let me know how you guys would make some thing like a full suit for this demonic Cat-man. Thanks Action Author David W. Gray

    Really good tutorial, i've been searching for help how to avoid getting ugly stripes from brushing on latex, now i'll be trying out those foam-brushes.
    Wonder if they will absorb some latex... =P

    Sir this is the best tutorial I have ever seen! I just purchased my Mr. I suit online today!
    One question for you though. I see where you applied the latex with the suit laying on the table, I assume that you did one side, let it cure, did the back side, let it cure then applied successive coats. Does that not leave a weird seam on the sides? Phenomenal suit & very inspirational!

    This is so HELPFUL and not only that it's affordable! However it would be VERY helpful to have links to each product you used and where in the world did you find a costume like that? Ebay? Amazon? By the way it's spelled Duct tape :p

    Is this the EXACT thing you just used? :D What did you use to harness up that costume to start the latex process? I am certain you used airbrush equipment for the whole body correct? Get back to me when you can! Thanks!

    That is the suit that is used when refering to a Mr I suit. He states he used rollers and sponges to apply the latex.

    I'm sure this was asked already, but I'm also sure it would take ages to search it;
    How much latex do I need for one suit?

    Thanks,
    Taung
