as you may know
shit take long ;P
and after the first poor and lazy try of a papercraft tutorial
i'm proudly present the second better version, where i'm gonna explain every single step what i do when i'm build a papermodel out of a 3d mesh :dance:

after meanwhile three years of papercrafting i still can say, it is one of the best hobbys i've ever had and with this little series i wanna show you
that it is not that hard as it looks :)
but also that there is much more work behind as you may know ;)


About the Tutorial:
This tutorial is ground basic
specially the first part, where i am explaining the first steps in Metasequoia
what means, it counts for beginner and also professional 3d desinger
the only thing what you should have is some knowledge in papercrafting
where you start
what is possible to build
and what not

for this tutorial i'm using Metasequoia, a great freeware 3d editor what you can download "here"
if you are allready using an other programm like 3dsmax, Lightwave or Blender, you can of course use one of these
it doesn't matter because the method is the same

i also use Photoshop but every other image editor should do the same
the only thing what you have to purchase is the "Pepakura Desinger"
because only the Viewer is free

About the 3d models:
there are a lot of model sources out there
google is your best friend here
but i will NOT explain how to receive or where you can download 3d game models
that is not the meaning of this tutorial and here starts also the illegal part
why?
to recieve 3d meshes out of games, you have mostly break or rip them and you can imagine, the most developer don't really pleased by that

but as i said, google is your best friend here ;)

ok then, enough talking
let's start with the first picture where Metasequoia is allready installed

My super easy way to do things like tattoos for cosplay! It's probably a bit too heavy for your entire body but works well for small applications. Hope it helps someone :3

Basic supply list:
-Veg-tan leather (this can be bought in 8x12in pieces at Hobby-Lobby for $10 each)
-White leather strip for the lace (Hobby-Lobby in the Jewlry section)
-Sharp scissors and/or xacto knife
-Grommets 3/8 in (this can be found at Joann Fabrics)
-Grommet setter (also at Joann)
-Hammer
-Leather hole punch (optional)
-Tools for tooling the leather (optional)
-Spray bottle of water
-Acrylic paint or Eco-flo leather paint
-Eco-flo satin sheen
-Paint brushes
-Paper Towles (use to rub on satin sheen)
-Tracing paper or grid paper to make the pattern.

Make sure you have a clean hard surface to work on. I use a scrape piece of wood to place under the leather when I install the grommets.

Leather is not the only option to make the bracers. If you do use fabric make sure you use interfaceing to make it stiff and keep it from slouching

Metroid plushies... It seems like the obvious evolution of metroid hats. They're made in a similar manner and with the same material.

Aren't they cute? Don't you want one for yourself?

GOOD NEWS, NOW YOU CAN!

Well, you'll have to make it yourself, but still! I've made a step-by-step tutorial so everyone can have a metroid of their own: [link]

Thanks to sakana for helping me with the pattern Printout.

As usual. It's another last minute chionging of work out of my packed schedule. :) Is like kick start doing from last weekend. I never capture the process of making previously, as I was rushing to complete few days before flying for CF 2009 in KL. So sorry.

As the lightings itself, I made, fixing the Leds inside the headphones instead of just having on them on the surface. In this way, the light diffuse nicely and even instead of just disperse.

This is not something new. For the Benefits of those interested in Vocaloid Magnet and enquired on the making of the Headphones and Photos. I did another Updates For you guys.

These last two days, I made my Ciel Phantomhive Boot Covers so that my costume will be ready by Otakon ^^.

I decided to create and post this tutorial of my process. I really don't think I should have to pay $50+ for someone to make a pair of boots when I can just take old school shoes and make covers for them. I can just use the same show with different covers and save money.

P.S. Yes, I will eventually be replacing the black dots for buttons. I just havent found the ones I wanted yet. ^^()

I will also probably edit the heel a bit so the fabric doesn't go over the heel, but arches above it.

Also, if anyone is wondering, In total, the fabrics and materials needed only cost me about $20-$30 max ^.^
