As overseer of the Predatorium, a resource for all things related to the Predator films and costumes and props, Wreav has a lot of knowledge about the universe. He is a prop maker who believes in working hard and getting all the details just right. That dedication is visible in one of his latest projects: a female Predator costume. The suit is completely made of latex and is carefully sculpted and painted. The attention to texture and color is especially impressive — look at the photo of the face below to see what I mean. In case you’re wondering why the dreads are missing, it’s because they’ll be attached with Velcro.
Besides sculpting all parts of the suit, Wreav and his team crafted armor and props to go with it.
The ensemble is a commission that’s being updated (you can reach out about commissions on Facebook).
