I'd love to use that as inspiration for a costume. Maybe creating blades that go down the arms or on a piece of armor. Is there a weight limit you think for the blades? I may use worbla so they are more sturdy.
Hello - Where is a good resource to find the Pepakura files you mentioned? Thanks in advance for the response!
I made a torso only version of this. I used the good stuff expanding foam. It took three cans and I used a lot of newspaper stuffing. I had a pool noodle I used to shape the arms. I had a t-shirt display mannequin that was useless so I used the stand it came with for my frame. I put a hanger in the shoulders so I could hang the dummy if I wanted. Next time, I would use smaller pieces of tape. Looking pieces just do not wrap flat around a curved surface. I wouldn't use spray foam. I would use foam stuffing or all newspaper. The foam left flat areas where I otherwise have muscle or fat. I tried to fix those areas but it was a challenge. I put the finished piece on a Lazy Susan so I could easily rotate it while draping a costume.
Very helpful. Thanks.

what are the types of LEDS you use to create the multicolor animation patterns in the leather jacket on your website? Are the techniques exactly the same or do you need additional components? How many batteries are needed for 250 pixels if you want it to run 5 hours?
Do you have a course on how to do LED lights in clothing?

Thought I'd ask again about the printing file.
I have concrete ceilings so likely not possible. I'm assuming this transformer can be hard wired to a switch?
What will you do to hide the massive power supply in your dining room? It's a great project.
Are you able to share the 3D print file for the fiber optics for the head piece?
Is it possible you update the link to the fiber you buy without casing? I've tried the product links and they're 'no longer available'.
Thanks for the quick response. I'll keep looking.
