Pepakura model help

Ok So I'm going to be doing an Alice:Madness Returns cosplay and I really want to make her Hobby Unicorn. A friend pointed me in the direction of Pepakura but I can't seem to find a hobby horse or teapot cannon pdo anywhere.

Any advice for a noob?
I've checked:
405th, propzone, soaring hammer, tamasoft, and the ever popular google search.

Have you googled it? I don't really know what you're looking for exactly (can you give me refs?), but you might be able to find something that you can tweak after building it.

Reference picture would be nice.

But if no such PDO exists then you'll need to design it yourself. I'd suggest using Blender as I've been using it for a while now and have produced some awesome results.

Any other questions?

And I hope this helped.
When in doubt, just take the next small step.
With that next step take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
When the mind is calm you realize the best is still yet to come.

You could ask about it over www.therpf.com, there at least was a thread taking .pdo requests. Or you can try to find a 3D model of your objects online (make one,even? If you have skills with 3D modelling), then buy the Pepakura Designer and unfold the 3D files yourself. .obj works for certain, I can't remember what other 3D filetypes do.

Then again, simply using some other method than Pepakura might be easier...

Thank you guys for the help and suggestions. Here are some reference pics.

i thought about sculpting it from expanding foam and doing it that way but I'm afraid it will end up looking derpy. I'm not sold on the pepakura though as i have zero experience in 3d modeling.
