Well, here goes nothing! I've done all kinds of research and read more posts than I can remember, so now its time to get started and make those inevitable mistakes. I've built costumes from scratch, but I'm eager to try pepakura and there are so many masters of it here. I have my starting supplies and pep files and I'm just beginning to draw over the mountain and valley lines. My hope is to create an Antman costume from scratch ( ) and to create the helmet using this process. But before I begin a build like that, I want to try one that already has a pep file available. So I'm going to start with a Judge Dredd helmet and make my first mistakes there. I'll post pics as I go. Please give me any constructive criticism you may think up. Not a lot of free time so this will be slow, but its good to get started.
BTW, I read in a recent post that you can use almost any material during the glassing stage. I bought a pack of fiberglass cloth, but I have a question: My wife has a huge roll of Muslin strips (loose weave cotton) that she was going to toss out. Its used for leg waxing, but this roll got tossed in the garage accidentally when we moved so she doesn't want it. Do you think I could use it for glassing?
