Kristen's Enduring Lady Pred

Recommended Posts

This has been an age old build. I began it almost ten years ago...and at that time I showed a bit of progress on the old Lair.

Over the years I have slowly upgraded to the point where it is now:

I have just begun my final upgrade (for the moment at least) to the feet.

As I have slowly morphed over the years from machiko-esque to full predator, I have always been un-fond of my human feet arrangement. So at the constant prompting by my husband and Andrew Miller i decided to finally tackle the problem of making pred feet.

All of the available sculpts I have seen are too too big for me. These P1 feet are gigantic:

So I chopped the toes and ankle spurs off them, put my heeled boots into inside out wool socks, attached EVA foam as a base and latexed over the whole mess:

Next it's time to finish painting these, add leather for the sandals and then on to tackling the shin armour question.

I LOVE the work that Mike is doing over at SPGFX with his dual Lady Pred builds, so I'm thinking I will get a pair of his latex shins to go with this.

This is where the build began:

So from those mediocre roots I've moved forward. For years i'd thought the natural hair and flesh suit was an Ok "Machiko Style" suit. i still think thats valid, but years ago Mr. Fett planted the seed in my head that i would eventally want to go full pred...and it tuns out he was right.

I love the female predator look.  Yours looks great Kristen!   I have to admit showing your costume to my wife to persuade her into getting a Predator as well.

Thanks! We all take our inspiration from someone. Myself I was inspired by someone Mr. Fett used to know...her suit was 80% of the inspiration for how i'd configured mine.

Sharing ideas and getting others involved is what it's all about. :)

My ex-wife. I still know her. LOL. Her armor set was sculpted by the same old school guy who sculpted my own original set of armor - Wolf Morgan.

So here is the status of my pred feet as of now!
 

I got some awesome new latex shins from SPGFX, and paired them up with my custom feet:

I'll need to take a cotton wheel to the side seams, and then smooth it out with some Shoo goo. Then I can get to painting the shins, finish painting the feet and work up some sandal thongs.

Thanks! There's plenty more to do before MCCC in a bit under a month... so I'll be updating regularly. :D

Thank you! I can't claim 100% credit for it. I got the sock idea from someone else...but all of the rest is all me. :D

I should have shoo goo'ed the new Wolf shins, but was in a rush to get that painting step done to them. :/

I guess casey said the Shoo Goo trick didn't work well for him.

in this case I may not need it, as the seams are well hidden by the sculpt....so i think the cotton wheel and a bit of added latex over the top will do.

I've finished making the "Sandals" for my lady pred feet:

13084175_10204544777019482_4440657_n.jpg

i used some scrap suede leather to make them, hand stitched them together and then used pure neats foot oil to darken the suede (I'll probably do that once more before I'm through.)

I've just sort of tacked the sandal straps in place here with bank pins, but next i shall trim off the excess strapping and glue the ends down on the seams between the feet and the soles like real sandals have. Then i plan to skin the outside edge of my EVA foam soles with a strip of smooth leather to look like a sandal sole...or I may just coat it in black latex and call it a day.

In any case, the lower half of my Lady Pred just got a HUGE upgrade!

Any new progress? :D

She glued velcro to the back of her new neck seal last night. I witnessed it happen. LOL
