Ok this is my first atempt to make a complete costume. I have most of the materials except for the gaunlets, skin, and predator helmet. I will update this thread as much as possible but I dont plan to start on the project till atleast next week. Here is the mask I bought waiting for it in the mail.

It looks like you are actually linking to the gallery, not the image. Under the thumbnail there is a box labelled url. Copy the contents of that box, like this:

Live and learn guy, it's not the first time that sort of thing happened. Either way, it's a good mask. I just traded for one that's coming soon. I'm looking forward to it.

What did you trade for it? I just got into building and collecting predator stuff maybe I would do the "pay it forward" thing but I dont have anything to offer yet

thanks though I sold it back in june because Im going back to college. Damn redoing my room is taking forever, almost 3 weeks so there has been a major delay on my predator costume but it is next on the list of things to do.

Well after much of a delay(redoing my room and of course slacking off ) I have started back on my predator costume. I have the hair cut and melted for the pred mask(closed cell backer rod 1 inch diameter). I also have the magnets to mount the predator bio to the mask. Most of this week I have been working on the armor off and on. Here is a picture of the arm and shoulder armor that I made of linoleum(yes cheap indeed but I dont have the time or money to make a cast and mold the armor out of latex). They aren't dead on but as close as I could get them. I hope to have pictures of the mask and bio helmet mounted by the end of this week. Here is a picture of the shoulder and arm armor. I used a couple of predator action figures to make them.

Well the costume is about done I would say 80 percent(still figuring out the skin deal) but here is a picture of the hands I painted this weekend.Wasn't totally sure about what to paint them with dots or like a tiger shark stripe pattern but I like the job I did on the dots.

Thanks man though I seemed to use the wrong paint types I think. I tried putting them on after I sealed them with perma wet and some of the paint came right off. Good thing its around the wrist area and will be covered up by the gauntlets.

Yeah not good at all, I've ran into a lot of problem, I made a skin out of long johns but it doesn't really match the mask. I'll have to say even with me sort of half assing this project its not easy and costly.
