really tricky..idea for jacket detail tubing


trying to find something to use at the detail around the front of the jacket, the tubing.

i haven't a clue what to make/use for this part of the jacket.

the closest i've found is 'modular coolant hoses' like this...

http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&site=imghp&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1366&bih=643&q=modular+hose&oq=modular+hose&gs_l=img.3..0l10.679.1944.0.2071.12.11.0.0.0.0.209.752.7j1j1.9.0...0.0...1ac.1.11.img._5j04gNAHok&surl=1#imgrc=h7mb4HVC8beZrM%3A%3BPV8n-QREr9SwNM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fthingiverse-production.s3.amazonaws.com%252Frenders%252F5f%252F8d%252Fea%252F14%252Fd6%252FIMG_20110603_073408_preview_featured.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.thingiverse.com%252Fthing%253A9006%3B690%3B518

but the sections are too uniform. i dont know what i could use. mainly as i don't how i'd even describe it. segmented pipe, modular pipe, segmented tubing, modular hose.

no idea! PLEASE HELP!

was also considering foam insulation pipe and somehow just cutting the design in and spraying it up!?!

Have you considered just using wadding and quilting it?

Very early work of mine but this vegeta armour was just poly cotton and wadding with the designs stitched down.

Do you mean the tubed edging for the collar and shoulderpads? You could do that by having padding in the tubed bits, and the rest without (or with less) padding, before you stitch in the joins. If you're using sheets of stuffing, you might be able to roll that into a tube first.

hey, i didnt mean the the tubed edges, i was referring to the segmented tube thing that goes around the neck and down the jacket that hangs from the bottom! still reeeeally stuck with it.

Hmm, definitely a tricky piece to make. Could you get a stretch fabric the same colour of the jacket and make a long tube, then get wadding or thin foam and cut various strips so you can roll them up to make cylinders that are the right length but slightly thicker than your tube (when unstetched) and poke them along your tube, along with thinner diameter 'spacers' for the narrow bits. Or if you don't mind it not being fabric-coated (the fabric would remove definition I fear) you could make cylinders out of foam (roll them out of flat foam) or any other material, poke a wire or string through the center so they don't have huge gaps but aren't rigid, then prime the heck out of it (pva or similar is good usually) to give yourself a smooth paintable surface to paint the colour of your jacket. It wouldn't have all the nice angles that it should, but it at least means they can be roughly the right size and shape v

Oh right! In that case my vote is for the insulation tubes. You can cut them into long and short segments, and as an alternative to painting, consider fabric "tubes" of the same material you use for the jacket. You can elasticate the bits that pinch-in if you need more definition.

De nada

While adulation is awesome, I wouldn't have ever got started in cosplay if it hadn't been for all the freely given advice, tutorials, and information. I'm just paying it on.

Good luck with the costume, I can't wait to see how it comes out
