    I am not sure if it was already said but I am using just regular acrylic paints from an art store such as michaels, this is the best paint to use that many can buy near their home and it's pretty cheap...Make sure if you are painting latex like this that you use a product called ProsAide put this on the section of the suit you are painting first then paint it. If you don't use ProsAide the paint will surely crack and make your hard work go down the drain. You can get ProsAide on MonsterMakers just search it on google. Hope this helps!

    I'm going to try this with some body suits at WM after halloween. Cause I'm a cheap gal. And a student. Deciding factors there. That, and this is one of the more simplistic if time consuming affairs.

    Same here. I've been hunting through websites to try to find a fleshtone catsuit for a skin but all the websites that I keep finding apparently aren't legit. :/

    So a roller is a better option than a bristle brush, but a air brush is the best option. Unfortunately, I'm this side of broke, so I'll have to sponge and roll the entire suit. Damnedable, but whatever. I do have a question, though. How can I make the * actually look and hang like *? And not, ya know, a sportsbra straight bustline? I have a FEW ideas, but I want to make sure first.

    Not sure weather this has been asked or not, does the latex
    Shrink the Mr. I suits size? Will I have to buy a size bigger?

    just for some of you guys thinking of going down this road.
    I'm 17 years old at the moment and last year i was stuck with a problem, i couldn't find a latex suit that would fit me and i went down this road and used the guide.
    Although i used a wet-suit from my local Aldi store and then bout 50 Litre's of latex. follow the guide and the skin is your work of art the more work and time you put into it the better and it can look very good. My advice is to use lots of latex as the thicker the better, but allow for the latex to dry. I used polystyrene beads on my skin to create a bumpy and uneven skin and it turned out very well.
    Also be warned and allow for shrinkage caused by latex i got myself an XL wet-suit and it shrunk a little but not too much.

    Here is a link of how i did my predator suit

    Whoa. Dude. This was so freaking awesome!! I have been experimenting with latex and such, but was having trouble trying to figure it out with no help, but this... This is EXTREMELY enlightening just to see! Gives me hope that I could one day make my own latex skin instead of having to use a spandex body suit..

    Just curious when doing the duck tape dummy, did you make it in sections like torso and lower parts separate, and how do I get out of it all once taped in two or more layers?

    Do it all in one piece.  After 2-3 layers of tape, have your helper cut you out.  Make sure you're wearing clothes underneath you don't mind making a permanent part of your dummy.  Then tape it back together, add a pvc pipe 'skeleton', and fill it up.  Quick, cheap, and easy.

    I have the latex and cotton pads to start building up muscle mass,still curious if anybody stuffed the actual costume with the pads or just glued the pads on to the suit, and if I need the airbrush on the first layers or if i can add colours at a later point as I am looking like crazy for a compressor.

    So I'm looking into my first build. Iv been sculpting for a few years now and want to tackle a pred suit as its my favorite movie. Now I'm a 5'10 thin (132lb) 21 year old. Are there any suits you can recommend aside from the MR.I they don't come in my size (small) and other costumes don't come with legs with that kind of muscular definition and fitting form
