Unfortunately, I've no real expertise in the area of workin' with actual clothing. Whether or not you'd probably have to sew alot of it is another question - but I'd suggest hitting up youtube. There were a ton of prop/armor tutorials and I'm sure there'd just as easily be a few good sewing tutorials if that's the avenue you'd be looking at for your Commissar cosplay?

You could probably get away with the coat by buying one that would easily suit the criteria. You could of course add things on top of that (i.e pins/insignia etc). Though coats are out of season atm so you'd probably need to look online for that.

Hello,

I am working on a sister of battle costume (with evazote/foam), but I'm having issues with my leg armor pattern. I wanted to try pepakura to get a flat paper version of it, but I never used this program... and I can't seem to understand how it works.

Can someone help me, either with my pattern or with how to use pepakura, please ?

Here is the costume I'm working on : http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/5...oness048lb.jpg

The part that is problematic for me is the black armor on the calf.

Thanks in advance

Hey there, exactly what kind of problems are you having with pepakura?

Well I've never used this program and I wondered if it's possible to open a 2D image file and then work with it or if I have to use a 3D model ? Because I don't have a 3D model/view of my canoness.

Ahhh I just reread your post and I'm sorry. To answer your question for pepakura you need to use a 3D model. But to make a template like what you're looking for is one that is also unfolded so you can see the flat pieces and print them out. The issue I'm having is I'm having a hell of a hard time finding any Sister of Battle armor in pep. I've seen plenty of the Space Marine armor in pep drifting around but not that. Sorry...I'll keep looking if I can find any unless you think you can use the Space Marine as a guide and modify it.

Thank you very much, your help is deeply appreciated
I'll try to find a 3D model of my battle sister, then.

Here are some links for everyone

Pepakura:

Pepakura Imperial Guard Armor:

Pepakura US Colonial Marine armor files. While not necessarily Imperial Guard armor. IG armor is based off of USCM armor, and it looks just very similar to it.

Examples of how to use it:

Any advice?

So I've been interested in cosplay for a few years, but life got in the way. But now that I can finally start, this is what I'm planning on doing. I like the look of this Inquisitor, and I think even a fat guy (like me) can pull it off easily.

my question is Is there any advice on places to get materials, would I be better off buying pieces or learning to sew, etc...and good places to shop.

Thanks for any input.
