Predator Fancy Dress Costumes
By Mark Nobes
"Get to da choppa!". The original 1987 Predator movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger still remains my favourite of the four releases, and this gave me an idea for an awesome outfit. A Predator costume would be a unique and awesome-looking choice for an 80s or Halloween fancy dress party.
Sadly, most suppliers are only selling The Predator costume based on the more recent movie. Thankfully, I found something based on the 80s movie, which you can see below...
I want to start with this budget-priced Space Hunter costume which is the cheapest I've seen online. This is the only one available that is based on the original movie. Included is a jumpsuit with mask and knee pads, but the spear and boot covers are not included. Nonetheless, the price is pretty good and if you're on a tight budget then it's ideal.
There are two suppliers selling the costume on Amazon (as I write), and I have been unable to find any other supplier on the web selling this costume. Here are the latest prices...
Another costume to seriously consider is this infrared image costume by Morphsuits. This would be idea as a Predator themed costume, and would look very effective.
I also found this pretty awesome-looking Predator Mask. It's actually more expensive than the costume, but would look pretty awesome for Halloween! It's decribed as " high quality and comfortable and soft" by the supplier and comes in a presentation box, so you are getting something really decent for your money.
There is also a choice of Predator masks on etsy.
