(warning, having problems with the size/front tags, so it won't appear as epic as it was, though it still is once you read it :p )

THE NOOB'S FIELD GUIDE TO PEPAKURA COSTUMING::

Hello everyone, I'm feeling in the mood to contribute so I'm starting this up. What follows is a comprehensive, in depth guide to how to use pepakura and find the files you need, through some of the leading contributors of this forum and others! No more asking "where do I findz Iron man three filez?" and of the sort.
I have not been paid/sponsored in anyway to put up these links, or did I really ask permission, being that I will only post links, no actual files or videos, all of the files and tutorials are the respective property of the original individuals and are to be followed as they wish.

Now, this is in no way an attempt to undermine/take over the original pepakura question thread, or the pepakura request thread, this is just more of a directory to find links to pep threads, tutorials, and general functions about pepakura. If you do not find what you are looking for here, please try them before starting a new thread:
PEP QUESTION THREAD:
http://www.therpf.com/f24/pepakura-question-thread-please-read-rules-first-87056/
PEP REQUEST THREAD:
http://www.therpf.com/f24/what-pepakura-file-would-you-like-have-123626/

Now on to the show!!!

HOW TO USE THE GUIDE:

There will be several posts all spanning the most important parts of pepakura costuming, from file links, to videos, to unfolding and glassing, I will do my best to put up as much useful info as possible, if you find something to contribute, post the link to the thread, then I'll add it to the appropriate post.

Posts 1,2,will be files,
Posts 3, will be tutorials
Posts 5 will be for other topics of pepakura such as request thread/discussions
MEMBERS WHO'S WORK APPEARS.

I do not mean to step on any toes, if you wish that I take down a link to your thread, pm me, or simply post that you wish to be taken off, then I will follow your request, same goes for if you want to be put on the list. Thank you for helping to create the present and future of costuming :)

Oh yeah, and now, it's getting it's own wiki... BAM IT HERE!!! http://replica-costuming.wikia.com/wiki/Replica_Costuming_Wiki
(it's still under construction, if you know any wiki structuring, let me know, I could use some help on this.)

==OTHER FORUMS==

The RPF isn't the only forum, it's the largest (IMO) but it's not the only one, here are some others!

==405th Infantry Division

URL: http://www.405th.com/

Theme: The Halo Universe

Popular Costuming Method: Pepakura (Paper and Foam)

Comments. The first forum I joined when I started this hobby. You can find the best tutorials and threads relating to pepakura costuming and halo costumes here. It's seen better days, do the problems with malware and with the new update, which has left many things out of sorts and unavailable. Until the Noob Forum is sorted out I would just view it as a guest and wait until things are sorted out.

==The Replica Prop Forum

URL: (it's the forum you are viewing :p )

Theme: Replica Film and Video Game Props

Popular Costuming Method: Universal, all forms of costuming are supported, and available in different forums.

Comments. The forum that you are currently viewing. I joined this forum because of the other cosplays that I wanted to make that wasn't halo (405th) related. What I found here was a great pool of artists and collectors, with a great amount of knowledge.


The Hunter's Lair

URL: http://www.thehunterslair.com/

Theme: Predator

Popular Costuming Method: Scratch Building and Sculpting

Comments. Don't tell them Austa La Vista! :O


==Cosplay . com

URL: http://cosplay.com/

Theme: uhh... cosplay? :D

Mostly Anime, and mostly non American members.

Comments (none at this moment.


==Brotherhood of the Bat

URL: http://bbrotherhoodofthebat.runboard.com/

Theme: You guessed it. Batman

Comments: You're going to have to join to view any of the forum's content.



The Superhero Costuming Forum

URL: http://thesuperherocostumingforum.yuku.com/

Theme: Super Heroes

Comments: Just like the brotherhood of the bat, you have to be a member to view content.


I'm not going to "rate" these forums, because that's something you should decide for yourself. If you know of any other forums, post a link and I'll put them up :)

Good idea Seth. I know when I move to pep, a one stop shop is what I would want when it came to information and tuts. I appreciate the time and effort you took to do this. Cheers!

The old thread was getting bogged down with more and more questions of where to go, I don't mean by any means, that that this will take over it. This is just going to be a thread with links to what you may need, if it's not, then you can ask in the old thread. No harm/trolling intended.

Thanks, I've been thinking about this for a while, hopefully this will help people find what they need quickly (and without generating a million and one pep request threads ;) ).

Thanks! So much time is spent trying to find files, I thought this would help people interested in learning this craft, even if just a little.

More links are to follow, most notably the halo section and maybe the gears of war section if I can find the links.

Dude, When I click your link for games I'm just finding a page full of ads, I was interested in the Dead Space files.... any chance you could email them me? that's if you are sharing... I may have misunderstood your post. PM if you can do this and I will send you my email....


Also fantastic job Armorer on putting this collection of resources in one place, thank you, big help to many of us :)

The mods should make this a sticky (hint hint;)), it's just the greatest starting point for the begginner.

My 10yr old son wants to have a go at Fett and a clone lid/armour after I showed him your thread :D he's a chip off the old block, I'm so proud :)

I'm going to have a crack at the DS engineers suit and helmet, and we can make them together as a son/dad project.

Thanks again for doing this for us all :thumbsup
