Wheee omg thank you for the tutorial. I was going to use foam board instead of craft foam as I thought craft foam would be too flimsy, but yours looks amazing! I've been looking for a decent pattern as well to save myself from drafting my own, so thank you very much!

I shall bookmark this for when I decide to rewear my Mitsuru cosplay

So, question. How big is the finished Evoker?

In order to print the pattern, I'm being prompted to specify how big the print is. I need to know if it's a full page (8.5x11) or a 5x7 picture or a 4x6 picture or what.

heres what i did..i saved the picture off the first link to my comp..opened it in paint..went to page setup..hit PORTRAIT as the page view..and set the % to 65..this is the size for the whole area of grey to be the width of the paper..
http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...Untitled12.png
then print..depending on if ur a male or femal..u will want to adjust it..im a smaller male so i used i think 55 or 60%..u may have to print 2 or 3 times and cut each one out til u find a size that fits ur hand best and if u wanna do what i did..u can just trace out the first one so many times..then cut out things to get the other peices instead of printing all 8 pieces..its much easier

The pattern pieces that I provided are the ones that I used when making my evoker. I printed them at 100 % size no shrink or stretch by the printer. Once completed, the evoker has the following dimensions:

Thickness: 2.5 cm
Length: 18 cm
Height: 13.5 cm

It fits my hands perfectly (I have average sized female hands) and I can put my finger inside the trigger.

I hope that helps, if you need more measurements let me know.

All right, turns out my computer was doing something incredibly funky. I got it to work. So far, it looks really good, I've glued everything together. I'm leaving for a vacation tomorrow, so it'll be next week before I can go any further, but so far I'm very impressed.

The only thing that gave me any difficulty is that the pattern has a few little details on it that don't need to be on the final thing (there's little ridges along the top and on the side) which led to some confusion when cutting. I'm going to have to file those down to make it look better.

At first I was planning on using gesso so I bought this from a local store: http://www.deserres.ca/en-ca/search/...s-gesso/GESSOD. I didn't know there was different types of gesso so yours might work differently, but here's my experience. When making my first evoker, I applied a few coats of gesso with a paintbrush and sanded it once it was dry. Sanding gesso works, but I thought it took too much time so that's why I looked for an alternative. I don't see why it wouldn't work, but I can't promise "for damn sure" it'll work since I didn't use gesso for any of my 3 evokers (except the first one that has a little bit of it, but the gesso was covered in spackling paste afterward). I really recommend spackling paste because you get a nicer finish with less coats and less sanding.

Did you check at Home Depot or some other hardware store? That's where I get mine.
