    I agree. They're too small to be holding 3+ pounds of fabric.

    I'm sure they used Magnets or Velcro. If they didn't, they used magic.

    We're considering hidden straps that run under the armpits like a luchadore cape just due to the weight. It doesn't help that the cape is assymetric (like just about everything else on this costume!) so it pulls a little to the left.

    Maybe they used weights? Though that will be hard on your shoulders throughout the day. Straps could work

    We thought about weights but this is for conventions so I'm looking at wearing it all day and the cloak is not something I'm going to take off - it makes the costume!

    Minor update: We've gotten the base pattern for the edging on the cloak started and it's looking good! Took a lot of work to get the pattern (I wound up having to make an image and convert it to a sewing pattern her Brother machine could understand.

    Please note that it isn't finished, there's still the stitching to run between the patterns, it needs ironing etc but I'm so proud of what a great job she's done I have to share!

    There's a video from Comic-Con on the Doctor Strange Facebook page showing a good amount of detail on the costumes. I muted it when the redhead entered the picture, I don't know if there are any spoilers after that, if that's a concern for you, but I seriously doubt it. She directs the recorder to the Baron Mordo costume, but he moves back to the Strange costume for a little bit at the end.

    https://www.facebook.com/DoctorStran...2365166319044/

    I was surprised to see just how off-kilter the cloak-cape actually is. The detail on the patterns on the cloak are amazing (if you can't see it well, you may need to download the video), I really like what he called the "brain pattern" around the collar.

    Hi I don't know if you've started your boots yet but I found out what I believe are the exact soles on his shoes

    They are as gt 2000 3's

    And there is an image with higher brightness, you can really see the lines are exact also here's the reference pic we have have of the sole to compare

    And here's a proper orientated one to compare

    Please note they are opposite feet so the one in the costume is on his left leg. And the sole used to do its picture is on his right leg, this is why I believe there isn't an asics symbol right at the top.

    Hey gang...
    I am a part of the Facebook group that was also working on this project. I made the models in the JerTwitch store on Shapeways. BBeauty Designs and I worked on the same fabric design as well. I love that this has finally taken off so well on theRPF. The name of the Facebook group was "Sorcerer Supreme Apprentices"...simply because I didn't see anyone doing this project for Strange at the time. Here is an image of the cloak brooches I got from Shapeways and made a mold of. I have been cold casting mine, but need to pull another set this weekend as the metal I used was too dark for my liking. I look forward to seeing more of what you all post, and great job on the modeling PropLord...

    By the way, we have found that both the Asics GT-1000s and GT-2000s are similar enough. I bought the GT-1000 4s.

    So I spent this afternoon looking at the belts!
    I started by studying the bottom layer of the belts, which is a bigger section of leather about 3 reg. Belts tall.
    Unfortunately, there arnt any good pictures of all sides of the belt, i'm kinda assuming some stuff so let me know if anything looks off!

    Heads up, Spoonflower is doing a sale on a different fabric each day this week for a "dog days of summer" event (this Saturday 7/30 is the final day)

    The Prop Lord said: View Post
    I don't, and I have a great deal of pics.

    Here is where I'm at with the Cape print. It's a LOT more accurate than the one I made before, and free for everyone to use. Any input is welcome!
    The picture is an example, the link is the full image.

    It is 72 inches by 56 inches. I plan on printing it on Cotton Sateen at FabricOnDemand.com

    EDIT!
    I have a more accurate version uploading to Google Drive.
    The new texture is tilted into "diamond shapes" so you can cut out the cape as one solid piece. There is left over space so the second link has the "ugly squares" that are colored differently on the cape. Meant for adding the "patches" wherever you see fit.

    If the file was set to "download", yes.

    The thing about the crazy " # " symbol on top of the eye, is that it can not be printed on a filament based 3d print machine. Unless you added a crap load of supports.

    I don't think I set the eye to be downloadable, simply because it took about a week of modeling and fine tuning the details.

    I can, however, send you the files if you want though. Just don't sell the file / casts of the Eye, since I'm going to be selling them myself once I get it molded.

    I plan on having my Eye ready to cast by Sunday. It's already sanded, cleaned, and smoothed. I just haven't sat down and done it yet. I have enough electronics for 4 sets (Green micro LED with button cell battery/battery holder).

    To be honest, on ours the brooches are purely decorative - they're too small & fragile to hold any weight and the cloak isn't going to be lightweight. We're still experimenting with the best way to hold it in place.
    Had the "weight" problem with the fabric I chose for my Jedi robe-it kept sliding off! I solved it the same way I'm dealing with this cape: I molded a hunk of a 20 litre bucket I got from a restaurant to go over my shoulders, then glued the robe to it!

    I most solemnly swear, here in public on the RPF, that I am legally and morally bound to only use the files to print my own personal copy of the Eye for my costume and to give full credit to The Prop Lord in all published photos thereof!

    Seriously, this is the last piece of this costume that's been giving us nightmares - I've got the electronics already (3W green LED w/remote belt battery pack) but as we want to debut this at the Brisbane Comic-Con in mid-September time is drawing close and I've been panicking about the Eye! I'm happy to experiment with printing the # piece, I just don't have the skills to model up the pieces yet.

    You sir, are a textbook example of what the RPF is all about!

    P.S. My wife also sends her thanks as this is such a joint effort between us.

    Thank you! No problem! I'll send them over to you.

    There's a program called MeshMixer (it's free) but I haven't had time to sit down and figure out how to use it. There's a function that allows you to Generate Supports for the weak spots of your model. However, when I tried printing it, there were 6 "Shells" even though it was only 1 object.

    So my printer decided to print the support first. Which is bad, because it's impossible to print the object you need because the supports are in the way.

    You can manually add supports with any other program, like Blender. It us just very, very, time consuming.

    I'll have fun! Edit: I have an UP Plus 2 printer and their software automatically generates supports so it'll be interesting to see how it goes with the # piece.

    A minor update - we've finally gotten the embroidery patterns for the trim working well. It's all getting pinned in place so ignore the mess, but this is how it's turned out:


    Here's the "brain material" section - all hand-done random patterns.

    Here's the trim pattern done via the embroidery function of m'darlings new fancy sewing machine. If anyone would like the patterns, happy to share and/or convert to whatever manufacturer you require - this one's a Brother but the software lets me convert as required. We made one pattern for the arc, a reversed one to allow alternation and did the long flowing seam in between using a decorative hemming heirloom stitch (Brother stitch # 40).

    Netfabb and Blender work. This was designed in Blender. Both programs are free.

    Oh, btw, the diameter is 2.75 inches.

    My ring is 2.25~ inches wide, so I took one of the newly released pictures of Doctor Strange on display that show both the ring and the belt. I tossed it into Photoshop and it measured about 2.75".

    So major props (pun intended) to The Prop Lord, here's a photo of my first print in quick & dirty mode just to test sizing, supports etc.

    And here it is with the LED. Please note that I'll be using a green LED of the same wattage, I just had the blue already hooked up to the driver & battery pack so it was convenient. It'll be a bit different when painted but I'll also be printing the eyeball part in translucent PLA to allow more light through.

    Note that both these photos were taking in the same place under the same lighting - the camera just had to darken the whole photo in the LED shot to compensate for the brightness. This will be easily visible outdoors in the sun!
