    Hi there. I am Sirena. I signed up not too long ago. I have been a Predator fan and an Alien fan since I was a little girl. I am working on my first Predator costume. My bf inspired me to start on this project. He is taking me to my first "nerd" convention in August. I hope this costume turns out alright. What I would like to do is build a base and then over time keeping adding improvements to it. Wish me luck! This site is pretty awesome! I didn't know there was a group of people that loved Predator like I do.

    Hey there, nice to meet you guys... I've been mostly just observing the amazing build threads of the people on here, now I decided to sign up. I am currently working on something rather "un-predatory", a gryphon, but after seeing all of the amazing techniques you guys have developed, I feel like I could build a pred for my husband in the near future. This page is really encouraging and so full of great ideas and inspiration. Thank you for existing :)

    Greetings from Switzerland

    Greetings Kheira!

    Warmest welcome to you and your husband! If a gryphon is what you wish to 'build', then by all means, build! :D All we wish is for you to share your work here with us! :D Looking forward to it! Cheers!

    Hey y'all :) I'm Michael, and I'm a prop addict. I stumbled upon this forum by accident as I was looking through RPF. I'm building multiple costumes for the 501st Legion (Boba Fett, Sandtrooper and Republic Commando-Sev), so at least I've got my feet wet with this costuming stuff. I joined on here because I've seen what a community can do to help someone build an awesome suit, and I hope to get that here. The Predators (and Xenomorphs) have been my favorite movie monsters my entire life. I was hooked at the tender age of 8, when I first saw Alien...then my world changed when Predator came out. Here was a true hunter. He was methodical, patient, ruthless, exacting...just amazing. I went to my first Con a couple years ago (yes, I'm 43 and a little late to the show), and met a husband and wife predator part of their costume, was a Jar Jar Binks head on their staff lol. When I found this board, I decided that I'm going to add one more costume to my WIP. I'm retired Army, and have a lot of time on my hands. Its tough some days to get much done due to my injuries, but its worth it when you finish an awesome project. I operate a small, one man operation called Hellish Designs. I am a landscape photographer, quadcopter 'pilot', and I've got a 3D printer for prototyping. TBH, I sit around most to of the day modeling and printing props lol. Finally my wife has become used to me doing a show and tell with my latest sword, rifle, or mask, on a weekly basis. Her responses are "Neat" "thats nice hunny" or "another one?". Anyway, glad to meet all of you, and I hope to learn everything I can from y'all. Here's some examples of my latest props:

    i've seen a few things so far to help me on my way pretty sure ill start with my mask ive seen some really helpful stuff on here already thankfully my old man is a Ornate Plasterer so ive got easy access to alot of silicone,latex,plaster and workshop space and the man knows a few things about casting and mould's which should make life easier for me.

    Cant wait to start thanks for having me :)

    Since it'd be rude not to..I Guess i'll introduce myself?
    I'm Stoya/Red, i'm from Germany, ballet/bellydance are my passions next to Gaming and well..the whole Predator shabang and i just recently got into this wonderful mess thanks to friends. Basically i'd love to delve deeper into the Concepts behind the Yautja as a whole. . This isn't supposed to get too long so i'll stop it here.
    Anyways, happy to be here.

    Oh crap I totally forgot to check in. Ok, so, well my name is Jamie and I'm both new here and old here. Was really involved in the hobby, lifestyle, culture, etc., ten to fifteen years ago when the Hunter's Lair was a rockin' and rollin' at which time I, um, took a break for a while (y). How's that guys?

    Well I'm back now and I thought I might be kinda cool to roll up my sleeves, get my hands a little dirty, and post a few videos of the process for the newer generation to learn from a guy who's been out of practice for a while what NOT to
