This is for all the new members who are looking for Predator parts to make a costume for Halloween. Please understand that most of the suits you see on this site have been put together over a long period of time - 6-12 months on average. Most of those suits are VERY expensive - $2000-$3500.
To give you a more accurate idea of the costs involved, here are some average prices for Predator suit parts:
-latex skin (body suit): $300-500 (more if painted)
-latex and resin armor pieces: $300-$500 (more if painted)
-latex head: $200 raw. Up to $400-600 painted
-Bio helmet: $200 raw. $250-$350 painted
-dreads/dread rings: $100-$300
-all the miscellaneous parts - netting, bones, small animal skulls, lasers or LED's, etc
If you get all the parts raw (unpainted), you could be looking at around $1000, but be prepared to figure out how to paint latex so that the paint doesn't crack when its flexed. If you want it all painted for you, then you are looking at $2500-$3000. Again these are average prices. All the costs vary from person to person.
Painting latex is tricky - search for more info if you plan on doing it yourself. If you want things painted for you, the costs vary depending on who you get to do it.
We are a very helpful community, but please understand - it is next to impossible to make a Predator suit in time for Halloween when it is only a month away- unless you plan on buying a Rubies cheap-o version, or trying your hand at making your own suit from scratch using paper mache, foamies and a Mr Incredible suit.
