    Hello everyone!

    Im starting a new project and i think you can guess what it is. I've done previous projects like a full power armor suit from fallout so im stepping it up with a predator suit!
    I live in Canada and enjoy artsy skill testing nonsense and have more time then money when it comes to these things, but i still strive for "realistic" lifelike cosplay! My build will try to balance the two.
    Thank you for reading about me and i appreciate the amazing skills of this page!

    IMG_0693.JPG Hello, I'm Grim and I have loved the Predator universe since I saw the first movie as a kid. Yes that dates me a bit. I've collected the comics, action figures, and other memorabilia. I am an artist and vend at a lot of Texas comicons, horror and zombie fests, and paracons. 2 years ago I saw my first full suit Predator cosplayer and the guy was amazing! All the moves, the skin was so realistic, great gear... never broke character. His wife was trailing him with their toddler and new baby. I asked where he bought the suit. She said he made the entire thing himself! I have thought on it for some time and want to make myself a suit.

    Now I'm female and there isn't much in the way of Predator Halloween costumes for ladies. Plus much of it is pretty campy. I checked into airbrushing body suits. Then I saw the latex pieces people are making for themselves. This is uncharted artistic territory for me. I paint and sculpt well enough but I've never made molds of anything beyond warhammer minis or jewelry sized pieces. So this is me at the very beginning of this journey. Thank you for creating this space for us to learn. I'm also really glad there are at least a few other ladies into this.

    Hey Grim, welcome to the forum. There are lots of ladies into this and who are starting the Predator revival just in time for the movie which is coming out next year. The current climate forecast shows a rise in Xenomorph presence. But we can combat that with a rise in Hunters and Huntresses which are bound to be coming into the Predatorium any time soon. What use to be a male dominated costuming scene is transitioning into a more mixed society (which is what I am hoping) I see lots of female getting into this which is great news. Anyway that being said hope you start your build soon.

    Hi folks

    I'm Rich, 40 something father of Two & a really bad goalie from the UK.
    Looking forward to getting my first Pred together & am researching/devouring previous WIP posts until my eyes bleed. Still undecided on a Wolf or Pred1 build, we'll see.
    I've concentrated on Star Wars up until now with the 501st (previous build is here if anyone's interested: Jodo Kast My Jodo Kast).
    Love War40 also.

    Cheers!

    jana 198.JPG Thanx guys! Usually I run about the festivals as the undead or an orc queen. I was cast, along with my brother & dad, as one of the shambling hoard to overrun the Gamestop crowd for Call of Duty: Black Ops II back in 2012. I have a small bit of live steel combat training for Ren fair shows. Most of the cosplay fighting groups here in SAtown are hardcore Star Wars or some type of furry though. I would love to see an AVP group someday. [​IMG]

    Hey there folks! Ya'll can call me Kat. I'm new to the forums but not the fandom. Loved the movies since I saw P1 as a kid, I'd like to say it got me into the love of all monstery things growing up.

    I've also been drawing/illustrating all my life and just picked up sculpting not too long ago. I'm starting small though! One of my first sculpts I've been working on is a mini bust of Ahab from the Fire and Stone comics. I eventually have hopes of taking that learning the ins and outs of suit making. (I honestly think Ahab would be a rad suit)

    Here's a little taste of my take on Ahab, since he is kind of inconsistent in the comics:

    He still has a lot of work I need to put into him!

    Thanks~

    Huntress Hunter

    Welcome to the forums, there are some women here, I'm the 4th to order the Huntress predator from Wreav. Starting a build from scratch can certainly be intimidating as they are quite extensive and complex builds. I went the route of commissioning my build as it would be years trying to make that on my own.

    Ask lots of questions most people are helpful.
