Hello,

I am new to the cosplay community. I am currently working on a predator build for Halloween/comic con 2019, Does anyone have any Blades for wrist Gauntlet for sale.

I don't have the Machinery to cut out a set. I will also share photos of my work so far for advice, tips and constructive criticism.

Hello, I'm looking for something Strong, a firm foam or plastic at best, but stronger than cardboard..lol. Nothing too expensive, I'm on a E-5 budget... I have tried to make a set but I am a bit anal with detail and I don't have tools or machinery to get them like I want. Anyone who can help is welcome. I have started fabricating my gauntlets and feet, ill share pics later.

Here is a suggestion real cost effective go to a hobby shop . Im not sure where your located but get a couple pieces of balsa wood which is easy to carve download the gauntlet template trace the pattern about three time Glue then together using wood glue . Sand it down to bevel the edges . You can just use acrylic paint and spray gloss to seal it. Or in my case I got some 1/8” adhesive foam to cover the sides . No need for big saw just an exacto knife

Derrick G It is looking DOPE man! Continue the hard work .... for myself I am waiting for magnets to come by mail.... :D
THANK YOU ...SAME TO YOU, Yeah, I got a Wolf predator bio mask and I am going to retro fit a hard hat to it and attach the dreads around the sides, also use pieces of a rubber mask to give illusion its covering the predator face... i cant afford one of the masks sold online, they are nice but need to save up for it.:) ill send pics of my concept, possibly get a better idea shared etc..
