Daedric Armor Progress by Kuraudo3 Daedric Armor Progress by Kuraudo3
I'm about to start applying bondo so I thought I'd put up a picture of what it looks like resined.

Well it was pretty snug on me and I'm fairly slim. I wear 31 inch waist jeans, if that helps. And yes! You can check the actual distances between points in pepakura designer. 
2D Menu > Edit Mode > Measure distance between two points

Amazing work, truly. I have one question. How did you cut it so you could put it on? Can you send me a pic that shows exactly where you cut it? And also, in what order did you do it? Did you apply resin and fiberglass and then cut it with a dremmel, or did you cut it before applying the resin and fiberglass? I was thinking I could apply a coat of resin to the outside, so it stays in shape, then cut it with scissors, and then fiberglass it. I don't have a rotary tool, so I need to use scissors. Would it work like I am planning to do it?

I don't think that's going to work because I don't think you'll be able to cut the resin with scissors. I don't use fiberglass mat or cloth, just several layers of resin before applying bondo. I usually put 3 on the outside and 2 on the inside. It won't keep it's shape when you just use a couple of layers, especially if you haven't used any mat or cloth. You want to make sure it's completely rigid before you cut it in half, because if it's flimsy at all when it's in two halves you'll have a really hard time getting them to line up properly. Oh and yes I used a dremmel. Not down any particular lines, just right down both sides.

Hey, I was just wondering how to make it wearable?
I have the patterns and stuff, but could you give me some tips on how to make it easy to take on/off?
Thanks :)

AMAZING build :) this is by far my favorite project to see going through the build. Would you still happen to have your armor PDOs. I'm 5'11 so ill just need to upscale it just a tad.

Amazing!
I also have a question.
How do you manage to put the armor on? I imagine just putting it on as one piece would be hell and might even damage the piece. I noticed there is something on your shoulders in the picture. (tape?) Do you maybe make the armor, split it into two halves and then connect the two pieces when you wish to wear it?
Thank you!

You said that you scaled it to yourself at 5' 10'' (good news because i am that height) but did you add a little space for padding/room if you grew taller? I would love to know so that I can adjust the files if I need to. Also, did you unfold all of these files yourself? I know that it takes hours just to unfold one file, depending on what the model is. Keep up the good work!

Im having a really hard time with measurements. My husband and i are doing male and female deardic armor for march comicon in toronto. but i thought i had measurements right. i just finished my helmet and it dosn't fit..... its REALLY small, when i say really small i mean small, like child sized, and i made it about an inch bigger then the original. Would you be able to help us with measurements so that i don't waste hundreds of card stock sheets?

So sorry to just be getting back with you on this, but I would like to help if I can. Scaling is really difficult, probably the worst part of the whole process. I'll tell you what really helped me out though when I was first starting: I built mock ups of the models before I built the full detailed one. I used a program called metasequoia to reduce the polygon count WAY down so I could build that really simple mock up. This saved me so much time. I'm assuming you have pepakura designer since you're messing with the scaling, so if you want I can send you the 3d models for you to play with. Then again this may be no help at all so I'll just send you the measurements of my daedric helmet which fits me perfectly: H462 W327 D418. Oh also, do you have my pep files or someone else's? Because I just put up a download link for all of my pep files which are already scaled to fit my 5'10" frame.

do you have skype or facebook? i dont get on deviantart much and your lucky i came on and saw this 0.0 i do have pepakura designer, and i have files from you i believe on the 405th. i do however need to build this as fast as i can, the helmets fit us both fine, we were able to fix that. my plan is to have both our weapons cut, scored and glued together by Monday. the chest pieces need to be cut and assembled by sat next week etc, etc. plan to resin in bout 3 weeks and start bondoing/ painting after. our deadline is march 6th. Also i think talking on skype or facebook may be better for us to be on the same page sort of thing.

Add me on facebook: krystyna bartlett. Im mostly worried about the chest peices for the male, it looks very tapered and my husband has a big chest. And the female, im sure it will fit but im worried my boobs wont fit in the chest cavity. How can i measure to make sure it fits?

Another trick that might help you out is a measurement tool built into pepakura designer. If you right click on the 2d window on the right an option comes up for "measure distance between two points". This lets you see exactly how much room you've got between any two points.

Kuraudo, thank you again for the your pep files. Your unfolding is great! There's a few tricky parts, but I can't expect less for this detailed armor set.

What did you end up doing for the inside of the neckline? The fanpiece that holds the top flaps in, that is. I was thinking about cutting it short and just attaching the blades together in the circle.
Reply
:iconkuraudo3:
Kuraudo3 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2012
Well I made it long like that so it would be strong enough to hold the entire piece up while I resined it. I just ran some wire through the tip of the cone. Then once I had everything resined I just cut the cone off with a dremel tool. I don't know if this answered your question though, let me know.

HI ^^
I got one question : why do you put so much scotch tape ? (There seems to be tape on every single folding)
Reply
:iconkuraudo3:
Kuraudo3 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2012
There's tape on every edge where two pieces meet. Two or three sometimes, it just depends on how long the edge is.

I built it in two halves, a front and a back. In this picture it's just taped together on the sides, but in the final version I'm planning on using elastic to hold the halves together while allowing just enough stretch room to slide it on.

Dj3r0m Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
may I suggest you suing small belt and buckles, or small straps (not sure of the term) ... the kind that can be adjusted in lenght. The bad part is you'd need someone to help you putting the armor on (anyway it's always like that for armors)
Reply
:iconkuraudo3:
Kuraudo3 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2012
Yeah I'm still not sure how I'm going to do it. If elastic isn't strong enough to hold it together I'm sure I'll go with some kind of strap/buckle rig.

also even if a strap/buckle is visible, it still looks cool ... like a real armor ^^
