You might also do a search on threads over on the Tousando forum. There's a member who goes by "dannyinjapan" who is a big fan of tatami-dou, for example.
Just be sure to widen the defaults on the search parameters or it will only give you results for ten posts for the last seven days.
> Also, how would a conical helmet ("jingasa") be constructed?Try this in poster board first: cut a large circle. Find the center of the circle and cut a straight line from center to outer edge. Pull one edge over the top until the cardboard begins to form a cone.
Suddenly it's a hat. ;-D
