    I don't think anyone from this forum will or know how to create pepakura files for things. Usually I just search online for when I need pep files, have you tried the usual ones (405th, RPF, etc)?

    Though if it's such a specific character that no one has done before, I don't know how much success you will get. That being said, you can get creative with creating this, finding resources on other characters that look similar and just modifying the pep blueprints either in software or physically when you construct it. For example, things like shoulder pads, breastplates, legging, etc are common to many costumes so you can print out generic ones and just edit from there.

    Your character's armor doesn't seem too complex in terms of its folds and contours and whatnot. It looks to me like just getting the basic armor pieces and gluing those leather straps to the edges to connect them. Then gluing/knitting a blue dress for the bottom and a blue long sleeve for the top and a blue hoodie for the hood. For the gloves you can just use white plain gloves for the base and add extra detail parts yourself.

    Just a heads up though, pepakura work and cosplay in general takes a loonnnnggggg time. Hours and hours of cutting and assembling. So if you ARE short pressed for time, this might be difficult.

    Pretty aggressive for a newb... Anyway you need a 3d model first. Which you don't seem to have, so... Can't really help until you get one anyway. And honestly bro, not that anyone really cares about cheshire, you immediately came off as an asshole. And not the mildly entertaining, borderline friendly asshole, just a regular douche. So don't expect anyone to pop right up and be like 'yeah let me waste my time helping out'. Especially since you barely seem to know what your doing anyway.
