This homemade costume for men entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Walter, the 'The Predator' costume creator:

I am the one in the costume.
I got the idea for my costume from the movie “The Predator”. Let’s start at the top of the costume and work our way down. The hair for the predator is made out of concrete backing rod that was melted at the ends and then covered in black plastic dip and painted flat black. The hair barrette is made from large rubber bands that were painted red and grey. The bio helmet itself is made of plaster. It does make the helmet heaver but I was able to carve the symbols in the top of the helmet and paint them red. and added the green scratch mark in the front of the helmet. I then added 3 red led lights for the laser on the side of the helmet.
The skin is made from liquid latex and foam. I shaped the muscles out of foam and then covered them with the liquid latex. I attached the foam to a body suit. I then painted the skin and added the netting. The netting was a decorative netting found at a craft store. The black moles on the body were jewels that I found at the local craft store that I painted black. I did the same process for the hand and feet of the costume. All of the armor pieces are made of craft foam that were hot glued together and then covered with EVA glued and then painted. The cannon is on a motion sensor. (Yes it moves on its own). I used a fake security camera for the base of the cannon and then created the cannon out of water bottles, parts to an old water gun and foam. I then added a L.E.D light at the end of the cannon.
I hope everyone enjoys this costume as much as I have.

Great work Walter. Love the detail. The moving shoulder cannon and self destruct lights are great details that show how much time and effort you put in the costume.
