I have to say that this Predator costume by Shawn Thorsson of Petaluma, CA, is really amazing. This costume was made for Halloween 2005, but this write-up and photos are recent. I wonder what Shawn will make for this year’s Halloween?
Shawn hand-sculpted most of the features of his costume, using upholstery foam, liquid latex and a whole bunch of duct tape. Yeah, now that’s what I’m talking about. DIY! Duct tape can fix any problem! He even used a LED belt buckle to mimic the Predator’s computer in one of his aluminum wrist gauntlets.
The costume added six inches to his height. The foam and rubber made the suit uncomfortable, but it still looks incredible. So what are you planning to make as a disguise this Halloween?
