Craftster: Where Tacky is Tasteful.

It isnt really for Halloween... I am going as Pyramid Head for halloween, but for fun, I am making a Predator costume!!!!

I am fully depressed about the fact that Halloween is only one day of the year, and that the only day you can really dress up. My friend is too. So usualyl, once we complete a new costume, we dress up, and take a walk around our neighborhood wearing that. Last year, The Phantom of the Opera and V (V for Vendetta) graced the streets.

This year, I want to make a Predator costume!!!

I am not worried about the armor, its his damn skin that I am worried about. For the armor, I shall be using the Craft Foam tutorials I found somewhere on here. Armors taken care of.

Now, I just need help with the skin so I can dress up fully.

I am a 16 year old girl on a budget (A very tight one...) and so I need an inexpensive way to make this great Pred's skin!!!! I was Thinking about using plain Muslin and dying it with tea a few times to get the color, and then painting ont he spots, but I am not sure it if would work.... It might, and it would be very warm...

Any ideas?

Here is what he looks like, there arent many good shots of him...:::

In this picture it looks like he has just olive colored skin and is wearing fish net. But if I remember correctly, that is not quite the case for the original film. What are you doing for his face, or are you just going to wear a helmet?

The best of luck to you, this is a very intensive costume!

I am going to be wearing a the mask. I am not NEARLY confident enough to make his actual face.

The armor wont be too difficult (I hope) the Craft Foam Armor tutorial::

I'l be using that for his armor. Lightweight, cheep, and bendable....

It isnt done yet. I made my PH helmate, but I made it to big... It would KILL my knew to wear it all night. I need to re-do his head   Undecided

I'll post pics of that costume when I finish...!!! I too am a huge Silent Hill fan!!!
