Cool Homemade Predator Costume

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.

  1. Awesome piece of art! outstanding and very creative as well as unique. Bet all the neighbors wanted you to create something for their little ones.

  2. 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!
