    Well... good luck anyone going for super accurate.. Hope you've got one hell of a thimble?

    I was going CRAZY trying to figure out where I had seen that sole pattern before!!! I used to wear nothing but asics when I was in the middle east! Great find FoamSmith!!

    Now, as far as how to recreate it Moa Hunta....... It my be a bit hard, but not nearly as impossible as it seems. Done it before with Arrow Season 1 boots. They are on Nike Free Run shoes. I personally will do the same with this. Just have to decide if I want to make the "boot" or buy a boot I can alter if it's cheap enough. But seriously, it takes time and patience, but it's not too bad, especially if you just stay focused which this whole outfit will now require.

    With just over 2 Months till San Diego ComiCon, things are slowly beginning to come together.
    I'm based in New Zealand so this is going to be a pretty big trip.
    I'm contemplating ways of doing the Cloak collar, either a plastic insert or just stiff fabric.

    What are my options for stiff fabrics apart from starching the hell out of it?

    I'd suggest interfacing, such as Pellon. http://www.pellonprojects.com/

    Several layers of heavy duty fusible interfacing (probably one or two pieces of canvas in the collar with interfacing on both sides), or buckram.
    I'm probably going with buckram for this.

    Buckram is the white stiff canvas type stuff right?

    I did a google: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buckram
    I think this is what I got, it definitely looks similar.

    I should have a few progress picture up over the next month for my cloak and robes.

    Yes, buckram is pretty cool. I think it's super-starched canvas, generally used for hat-making. My friend impulse bought a bunch of it one day, so she's always looking for excuses to unload some of it on me haha...

    Ok, rings are done, now I just have to wait for them to arrive. When they do I will probably be adding extra detailing and filing a few bits for my own peace of mind.
    http://shpws.me/MenQ http://shpws.me/MenR
    Prices on there include the modelling work and 3D printing in Metal.
    If people want, I can get her to upload them in plastic. That way you wouldn't have to worry about the $50 an hour for modeling. :P

    Also I see that Shapeways have had a couple of modellers put up new "Eye of Agamotto" models, so check it out.
    https://www.shapeways.com/search?q=e...agamotto&type= - These are currently about ~$40

    I've also found a cheaper (plastic) 3D model has been uploaded for the lapel pins here: https://www.shapeways.com/product/LB...ionId=59885899 and here: https://www.shapeways.com/product/N9...more-from-shop


    Which is great, but and has wonderful detail, but still has the same reflected issue as mine. (note 4 "gaps" in the bottom line as opposed to 3 on one and 4 on the other)

    --Tiny bit annoying but hey, these are the perils of being the first to do something.

    Since there is so much on this thread already, I'll share what I'll be using / doing for my replica of the suit.

    I believe that the tunic / Gi portion of the costume is Denim. The arms and legs appear to be a slightly darker color, so with mobility in mind I believe some sort of jersey fabric is used.

    I've tried to recreate the inner part of the cape as close as possible using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I have not add the "super dark" or "super orange" smaller "patches" to the pattern. Is it screen accurate? It's pretty dang close. I converted a pretty high resolution JPG to a PNG to increase zooming without pixalating and this is as close as I could get it.

    I intend on getting this printed at www.fabricondemand.com using Cotton Sateen, instead of the 4-6 oz Cotton they have so it has a slight sheen to it.

    Right now the size is set to 56" wide by 2 yards (60"). I really can't see more being needed. The squares are 2" x 2". It is also textured to mimic weaving.

    Can I have permission to steal this image please?
    Also I considered denim for the build but denim has a lighter reverse side. As the material is pleated at the bottom and you can't see this, I decided against denim.

    That's why I shared it If you get asked about it, just say "that dude on the RPF made it" or something, haha.

    It's at full resolution (300 dpi / ppi).

    I noticed the pleating too. I'm pretty sure that each "layer" is just folded on each edge and sewn in.

    1. Pleating is sewn on with wrong side facing UP
    2. Pleating is folded down and top stitched.
    3. Shows folded over edges.

    What material do you think would fit it better? It appears to wrinkle pretty easily, so I'm thinking a cotton / linen fabric.

    I'm quilting a drill cotton at the moment. The pleated bit I was talking about was the fall running down the front right.

    Ohhhh, I see what you're talking about. Yeah, unless they doubled it up, it's not Denim. :/

    After looking at a ton of reference pics, I believe I have replicated the Left Hand ring pretty darn accurately. I did a test print on my ROBO 3D printer and it looks awesome. I intend on getting them printed on Shapeways.com so they can be metal. Here's the link if you want to check it out, and screen grabs of my model.

    Hey all, I had another thread about this, but I didn't link the photos, so I think I'm gonna roll all my updates over here. For me I think it is way easier to start with the props and work backward toward the sewing part. I think it's a motivation thing. So NATURALLY I started with the very flashy eye of Agamotto. I attempted in sculpey...

    It didn't go well. I think I overestimated my sculpting skills. I can do tiny things, but I went with a 5 inch corner to corner measurement. I was going to do wire work across the iris, but I couldn't get it to sit right. SO, I hit up one of my friends in the Maine Ghostbusters for advice and the guy went directly to 3D printing it for me, and for FREE. He ended up printing it 3 TIMES to get a version he liked.

    Here's the raw first print. (he's holding it upside down, but hey) He mailed it to me the day after, and I got it the following day and have been playing with it ever sense.At his suggestion, I started using bondo spot filler to smooth out the print lines.

    This is where I currently sit. I may need to hit him up for the clips too. Otherwise, I'm gonna try those in sculpey... we'll see how that goes.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I did that for support issues. It said it was too thin for metal. Sadly it lessens the "screen accuracy" which really annoys me.

    I made another model!

    This time it's a "stamp" meant for embossing. I have no idea if my plan will work out but here is the model.

    On the cape, there is a repeating pattern on the sides.

    I've tried to replicate it so hopefully it will be in the right ballpark. You can emboss fabric just like you can paper. I plan on using a metallic red embossing powder with either red or clear ink. I'll use the stamp to get the detail, toss the powder on, and then hit it with a heat gun.

    I'm still searching for cape fabric. I haven't had luck yet.

    As for the darker "kite shapes" I fear I'll have to darken those by hand. With this model, there is a slight overlap each time you repeat the pattern, but it shouldn't be too terrible.

    I've done a test print at 200 microns and it seems like it will work nicely. You can either order it from Shapeways or Download it from the link. I turned on "downloadable". I'm not sure why it says that some parts have "thickness issues". Even at 200 microns I got most of the tiny squares printed perfectly. If I had done 100, nothing would be lost. Surely they print at a higher resolution than my Robo 3D, haha

    I think you are on the right track with the embossing. The cape seems to be a patchwork of red herring bone and embossed fabrics (likely velvet) in alternating patterns. if you look at the below, the lighter parts of the fabric square look like embossed Xs. It might be useful to make a similar 3d model plate with raised Xs that you can iron into velvet.

    Looks good!
    Just be aware that if you are using 3D printed embossing, the 3D printing material has a standard melting temperature of about that of an iron.
    Don't melt your templates!

    Also if you do a template for the cloak pattern, please upload that also

    Thanks for the input. I'll probably make those pieces later tonight (7pm here).

    I'll probably mold and then cast the piece into a higher heat threshold resin. I think Smooth-Cast 300 and 325 can be heated reasonable high enough.

    Again, no idea how accurate it is, but here it is.

    I highly recommend NOT printing this sucker out. It comes out to $250. You can download it though below the picture. Here is the template I made to create the 3d model.

    If you use the black and white as a template for foam or a CNC machine, I believe the total size should roughly be between 10-12 inches "tall" / "high".

    I haven't had a whole lot of luck finding a perfect blue fabric. I found some linen that is pretty darn close in color from Fabric.com. This is after looking at pretty much the entire website. I also looked through Etsy and Joann's.

    Both fabrics are listed as "medium weight" so they should drape nicely and retain their body.
