I grew up on horror movies, and as a kid, both the Predator and Alien franchises freaked me the hell out and I loved it. I have pretty strong memories of walking through Nana’s house to go to bed after watching the first Predator for the 65th time and scanning the shadows carefully. As an adult, I’m obviously still in love with the characters and I’ve been impatiently waiting for The Predator to arrive.
Also, I’m absolutely stoked to see the new Predator species and learn more about them as well as relive some childhood scaremories. (I totally just made that word up, is it a thing? I want to make it a thing.)
Now that the release is literally around the corner, I thought it’d be fun to share awesome Predator themed things in celebration.
The Three Dots Pisco Sour from my friends at Geeks Who Eat sounds to die for! I’ve never had Pisco (a type of Brandy), but I think after the new Predator movie is the perfect time to try it out. Also, how awesome does this drink look? That iconic Predator laser is always hard to miss. At least for us spectators, haha! GWE definitely hit the mark.
And I mean, if we’re talking about Predator merch, I feel like I absolutely NEED this cookie jar. Perfect addition to my kitchen counter, for real.
I also just want to show off these bad ass prints I bought at C2E2 earlier this year. (I originally talked about them in this post!) Predator and Alien will forever be my favorite forced duo, but how damn dapper does Predator look in that bow tie!? C’mon, the way to my creepy heart!
An awesome group of Predator fans known as The Hunter’s Lair came together to create an insane replica Predator costume from the first film! I’m in absolute awe! The story is so fun to read and the Instructable they shared with it for the Predator backpack and animatronic cannon is so detailed.
Perler Beads are still a constant craft in my life (since I was like, 11, so 18 years now I’ve been obsessed) but I’m not sure I would have the insane patience to make something like this guy did! Based off Rocky Davies “Welcome to the Jungle” fanart, this Perler Portrait is phenomenal!
Shameless self-promo plug here! My Predator themed etched beer glasses turn out pretty bad ass. They’re some of my very favorite to make!
Last but not least, this super delectable Predator & Alien Wedding cake, made by Little Cherry Cake Company! I absolutely couldn’t eat it because it’s too precious.
Are you stoked to see The Predator this weekend?
