Here's our 2010 submission of my 9 year old son's Halloween costume... he's been a fan of the Predator movies and since seeing the previews and now knowing the DVD is out... decided that that's what he wanted to do this year. So... after 4 weeks and 30 hours of prep and a lot of patience... He is ready to tear it up at the Rio Grande Zoo Boo.

For those that are curious about the construction. Here's what is involved and where I got it -

Hobby Lobby: 20 sheets EVA foam

Home Depot: 1 can silver spray-paint
1 quart can contact cement
12 foam brushes
2 door springs
1 aluminum strap 36"x2"x1/8"

Walmart: 1 blue bedroll (sporting goods)
3 red key-chain lasers
(set of 12 strung LED lights from old sales display)

Dollar Store: 1 Pair sunglasses
1 Pair "knight's gauntlets"

Hancock fabrics: 5/8" cotton "rope" for upholstery

Stuff from around the house: Pill bottles, elastic straps and Velcro scabbed from old athletic equipment.....

So there you have it! Hope you all like it!

Coolest Homemade Predator Costume 4

This is the homemade Predator costume I made for my 9 year old son. The helmet and hands were purchased, but reworked for a better look. The dreadlocks are window foam. The leotard was a nude color and then airbrushed to give it the 'Predator' look. Over the top of that I added fishnet stockings. All of the armor pieces were made out of cardboard and plaster.

The weapon is lighted and the control panel on his wrist is wired to make the 'Predator noises' when activated.

Overall I think it turned out pretty well.

Thanks for the ideas. I have a 7 year old who wants to be Predator and a 10 year old who wants to be the Xenomorph (aka Alien). I was debating whether to buy the masks or make my own, but I like how you combined homemade with store bought to make a fantastic costume!
