This is the tutorial for the "proper crane", the one that most people will think of when it's mentioned. I know that my photoshopping skills suck and he pictures are a bit blurry, but bear with it and you should be fine.
I would highly reccomend you practice with the flappign crane for a while to get the hang of reverse folds, petal folds and squash folds before attempting this one.
If you are having problems still with this PDF, I'm sorry that there isn't anything more I can do to help - yes, it is an absolutely huge file to download, because it is full of photographs of many of the steps. Be patient.
You need Adobe Acrobat Reader or similar to view this PDF Also! This is a big file (almost 40mg) compressing it was causing problems with it being downloaded, so I'm reuploading it without any compression~
Please, if you make something with this tutorial (or any of my other one's), send me a link to it - I really want to see it!
OMFG. Okay, I've been working on this on and off for the past week, and really wanted to get it posted before I leave for the weekend. Not to mention, it has been my most requested tutorial, too. And, I have to say, I'm very happy with it.
It is long, and you do have to do math. Read through the whole tutorial first, before attempting to make it, so you understand the points.
As with all of my tutorials, they're wordy, because I want you to understand everything that you are doing. I abhor tutorials that are "and then do this, and then do this, and then this, and then you're done," especially for things that are sewing based off of measurements. You need to understand what you are doing.
This also may be more advanced than some peoples sewing skills are at, I would tag this as a "MEDIUM" tutorial, in terms of difficulty. You need to know how to hem something, press something, and what words like "seam allowance" mean.
These are not historically or Kendo accurate hakama, so there is no need to point that out to me in a comment - I know, that's why the word "fake" is on the preview image!
If you do want to make more historically accurate hakama, Folkwear has a hakama pattern available, just do a google search for it. These are meant to be more dramatic and stylized for cosplay purposes, because for many applications, traditional hakama are no where near as full as they should be.
There are two different styles described in this tutorial - ones that have elastic in a waistband for comfort, and where the hakama aren't going to be seen, and ones that have side slits and ties to close them, so they look more accurate to traditional hakama (they do not, however, have a backboard - you're going to have to figure that one out on your own if you want to add one)
I would ask that you do not sell anything you make with this tutorial~
I know that there isn't any way to enforce this, but if I do see this happening, it's going to keep me from writing or making other one's, or even deleting what I have done already, okay?
Out of all the Cubeecraft Daleks he's made, I noticed that this variant had escaped his collection. Although they got almost no screen time (they could be seen in Bad Wolf/Parting of the Ways for a little bit, floating around the Dalek Emperor), I always thought they were cool looking and a nice throwback to the guard Daleks from Evil of the Daleks.
I was unable to find the proper name for the other weapon, but it's based on the design given to the 12" RC version. I vaguely remember hearing in a review somewhere that it's some kind of vortex weapon linked somehow to the Emperor or something near him.
The only part I drew was the new weapon, the rest is all Cyberdrone. Daleks and Doctor Who belong to BBC.

Step by step tutorial on how to make your own Zaku mecha helmet out of craft foam (or rubber sheet in some regions). Be sure you follow it based on the size of the head you plan to have it worn on. This is very basic so feel free to improve on it in terms of designs, gimiks and colors.
What is Craft Foam?[link] (usually used for Flip-flops)
Where can I buy them? If you are from Metro Manila, Philippines, information on sources can be found at FilCosplay Forum's Cosplay SOS Directory: [link] You would need to be a member to view it, membership is free.
If you are from other countries, try to find your nearest supplier online.
Will you be making the whole Zaku body? Soon. If im successful, will post a tutorial if i can.
If used or downloaded, I would really appreciate a *Fave*
Ive been playing around with the GPL Photo Manipulation tool, GIMP, which is a fantastic alternative to Photoshop. I use the GIMPSHOP version because its close to being set up like Photoshop itself. And Im a huge supporter of Open Source for the masses. If you dont want to break the bank with Photoshop, you should give GIMP a shot - I dont think youll be sorry you did.
Anyway, I wasnt thrilled with the brushes available for GIMP, so I decided to try to make my own. Here is my first batch. The vectors are from Vecteezy.com and Vector4Free.com. You are free to use these brushes for personal use.
