How One Girl Became an Adorable, Tiny Predator

baby predator

Though I spotted plenty of fantastic costumes at WonderCon a few weekends ago, one cosplay in particular blew me away: Baby Predator. Photos of a tiny Predator spread across the internet throughout the convention, and it turns out there was a 3-year-old little girl under the outfit. Yes, Kayla is awesome. Her parents documented the build of the little Predator outfit at Hunter’s Lair, and they said Kayla requested this costume specifically:

Originally, DarthWill and I were going to have our two daughters as Marines to compliment our Yautja when we trooped around. Although our oldest, Zoe, is very excited to be stomping around in camo with a huge gatling gun at her side and fighting the “evil” predators, our youngest wanted to follow in her parents footsteps. (In truth, it was watching Predators dancing to Gungnam Style on Youtube that did the trick) In her words, “I want to be Predator…. I am awesome!”

They decided to keep the costume simple and leave out the muscle suit. They constructed the armor from craft foam, and they also used foam and fabric for the helmet. It’s especially fascinating to see how the dreads were made. And, Kayla’s mom added another sweet touch: Kayla likes How to Train Your Dragon, so her mom sculpted some dragon scales from polymer clay and added them on to the helmet.

The entire ensemble was put together in just over a month, and you can see several more in-progress photos and get more build info over at The Hunter’s Lair post!
