    Hi guys
    I found an amazing HAKAMA Tutorial that teaches you guys how to make an Umanori-hakama (馬乗り = Horse-riding Hakama)


    I have used it..tried and tested.
    Below are some sample pictures of the hakama I made using this tutorial.
    *only diff is i added elastic bands to the hem of it to pull it in together. pls ignore that trait*


    There are 2 General Types of Hakamas :
    1. That has no parting in the middle - like a skirt
    2. The other has parting - like pants - which we generally call an Umanori-hakama.


    "HOW TO SEW AN UMANORI HAKAMA" Adobe pdf File Download:
    *clicking on this link will trigger your download immediately *
    www.sithvixen.com/tutorials/SewingHakamaPants.pdf
    *please note this guide is NOT how a REAL hakama is made. It has been heavily simplied to save cloth but achieve the exact same look*



    One word of caution though....
    Please READ CAREFULLY ALL Words within the instructions.
    because you might leave out details like e.g "Doubling it" means 2 pieces of cloth together, one on top of the other....

    This tutorial does not cover handling of sewing machine, nor having to explain the usages of your full set of sewing kit/drafting instruments.
    Some basic self-taught knowledge of sewing is suggested before u attempt to use this.
    For experienced pplz, this guide would be "ez-mode" for u

    Hope this helps!!~


    Lovez,
    ~Cyrus

    Hihi..just a new addition since Invinc was looking for an example/suggestion on how we did our chainmails in Cosplay Chat

    .: Pictorial DEMO: CHAINMAIL MAKING :.

    Instructional Reference: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/trevor.barker/farisles/guilds/armour/mail.htm
    Credits to "Haldir" for providing this link!
    Credits to "Acktosh" for his chainmail


    STEP 1: Determining Chainmail Ringlet SIZE / Getting the RIGHT Wire

    The thickness of the wire you choose will determine how thick your ringlets get
    We got our wire from DAISO - $2/pack. [Recommended: IMM DAISO]
    You get about 1.5m more than what's shown in the picture

    Why I recommend DAISO wire also because its durable enuff, but SOFTER (easier to cut) than the usual hardware store's wire...
    It gives you that D.I.Y edge..rather than get too industrial
    There are MANY thickness to choose from...
    plus its easy to get restocks if you happen to need more! xDD~



    STEP 2: Coiling the Wire

    Find a Pole/Rod which you can Coil your wire on like in the picture above.
    The Diameter of the Pole/Rod you choose will determine how BIG your ringlets get.
    Continue to coil until you have something like this:


    Yea it should get all Springy and all...


    STEP 3: Cutting the Coiled Wire into Ringlets!


    Here's where it all starts to make sense
    Get a WIRE CUTTER (IMM DAISO has them too xDD~) and cut the wire off on the 2nd tier @ where the wire ends on the bottom tier.
    *The picture isn't accurate as to where you should cut!!!
    I should be cutting alittle more towards the left, just above where the wire ends off @ the bottom tier*

    This is to create a PERFECT RING with a slight opening naturally...LIKE THIS!:



    STEP 4: Preparing the CLOSED Ringlets

    Make sure you have 2 of these Hardware PINCERS -sry if spelling error rofl-
    You can get them @ DAISO for $2 each xDD~
    They come in Flat tips or Pointed tips -like the one above-, just find one you find you are comfortable working with.
    Why 2? Because you need them 1 for each hand...xDD~

    Clutching the Ringlet with your 2 Pincers...
    PUSH/PULL CLOSE the gap of the Ringlet like in the picture shown above
    *erm. I positioned it this way to take a picture with my other hand. xDD~
    By right you are holding both pinches while pushing the gap close..*


    Now here comes the important point:
    Make sure you leave a load of the ringlets UNCLOSED.
    Here's Why..


    STEP 5 : Consolidating/Chaining up the RINGLETS
    You won't want to do the chainmail ring by ring - trust me you will get confused after like 10 rings.. rofl...

    Step 5A: You will need to slot 4 CLOSED ringlets into 1 UNCLOSED ringlet as shown above...

    Step 5B: Once you got 4 CLOSED ringlets into that 1 UNCLOSED ringlet..
    Proceed to CLOSE up that 1 UNCLOSED ringlet as shown above...

    And when you put it FLAT down..
    Step 5C: ARRANGE it in this manner...
    This is what you can expect to get:

    Make sure you REMEMBER the sequence/direction to which you position your chains from now on..
    It has to be the same on your next set!!...

    or you can expect to run into some problems later xDD~ wuakakakakaka...
    *go trial and error, u will know what I mean*

    -Still in progress, awaiting demo pics, i lost some of them *sobsobs*-

    STEP 6: Chaining into a WHOLE FLAT PIECE

    *Don't panic @ the picture above, read below xDD~ lol:*
    Once you have chained up a series of 5 ringlets per set..
    You should RECOGNISE those 5 ringlets within the picture above




    Step 6A: LINK HORIZONTALLY...
    Now between the FIRST set of 5 to the SECOND set of 5 HORIZONTALLY..
    There is just ONE Ringlet inbetween to chain them up together...

    This is only to give you a general idea how the chaining works..
    The ACTUAL OVERLAPPING of the Ringlets will only be considered further down.
    First set of 5 + Second Set of 5 with the RED singular Ringlet in the middle to chain both up!


    SCALE of Sketch Demos:


    PINK - 4 ringlets of a set
    BLUE - 1 CENTER ringlet of a 4 Ringlet set
    RED - CENTER ringlet of the link between 2 sets.


    ONCE YOU HAVE A SERIES OF HORIZONTAL ROWS Chained up like this:

    Its time to Link them up Vertically to form LARGER pieces! xDD~



    Step 6B: Link Vertically Top to Bottom....
    -inprogress: Pictorial Drawing-

    Once you have a whole ROW of 5 by 5 sets done up HORIZONTALLY..
    You just need to ADD in the singular Ringlets as indicated in the picture above..

    This runs RIGHT ACROSS the "GAP ROW" between the ROWS.
    You will realize that this SINGULAR RINGLET you are adding is actually THE CENTER RINGLET of its OWN SET OF 5..
    Can you now see the pattern?



    !NOTE!:
    HOW TO SLOT in the Singular Ringlets/ OVERLAPPING RINGLET PLACEMENTS
    Slotting in the CENTER RINGLET has a particular hooking/overlapping sequence as follows:
    Here is where you will be soo grateful, you got the Pointy-Tipped Pincers!!
    -inprogress: Pictorial Drawing-
    -inprogress: RL Reference Photo-


    ------------------

    NOW...
    Once you can master Linking HORIZONTALLY & then Linking VERTICALLY...

    This is how it generally looks like when you are CLOSING the gaps each time you SLOT the singular ringlets...
    HERE is where you tend to get CONFUSED 'coz Chainmail moves about TOO MUCH for its own good...


    You basically got the MAIN idea on how to make a FULL FLAT piece of Chainmail...
    GRATS!!~~


    This is what you can expect to see/get:


    Using a shirt as a tailoring guide will help alot..especially when it comes to the SLEEVES JOINTS..



    There are particular CHAINMAIL KNOTS/PATTERNS/TRIANGLE THEORY you need to understand in order to make joint/sleeves areas...
    It is explained under this link provided by Haldir under "Tailoring Mail":
    http://homepage.ntlworld.com/trevor....rmour/mail.htm
    I highly recommend you attempt this ONLY once you've MASTERED the idea/concept/construction of a FLAT full piece of chainmail



    @ omgg.. Forgive me for making pictorial drawings by hand..
    but crap i have no "Paint" app.... & Photoshop on Macs are too $$
    *-stupid macbook-*

    Hihi... Do you mean this one?



    This one looks quite tedious -alot of technical terms-...if you want it done to a good standard....
    I doubt anyonez can show you how its done completely just by posting a tutorial here xDD~
    You might wish to consult a propmaker/someone experienced in propmaking in real life directly to explain/help u.

    Default Using humble paper to make complicated props! ^__^

    Hi mina-san

    I chanced upon papercraft after kimi-eden used this technique to make his gundam helmet (good work btw!). Papercraft in Japan was featured on channel u as well.

    Basically, you use a 3-d program e.g autocad and 3-d studio max to make the 3-d version of whatever object you want, feed it into pepakura designer and this amazing invention will disassemble it into 2-d form so that you can print out, cut, fold and glue the parts together!!! =O

    This technique can be used on complicated shapes as well! Take a look at the pictures and links below

    Pepakura designer and 3-d programs are not free =p but u can take alook at the 2-d form to get a rough idea of how to make the 2-D paper templates

    Links to get you started:
