The Papercraft Room

I was going to post a cute picture of a papercraft version of the Gatchaman team (here). And then I did some extra research on Flickr user, smilerobinson, the guy who made them. This is his room, filled with hundreds of other papercraft creations. Final Fantasy, Persona, Professor Layton, Resident Evil, Katamari, Nocturne, and more are represented here.

Life-Size Princess Zelda Papercraft
This is a real life-size Princess Zelda papercraft that stands at 170cm (around 67 inches (5’6” ish)), built by a DeviantART user who devoted a lot of time, minidelirium. The original craft was created by PaperJuke here. Feel free to download it if you want to spend a lifetime trying to impress your other gamer friends.
According to minidelirium’s DA post:

the cutting took 88h and the folding and building took 138h. I made a big mistake in the beginning and printed her on 120g paper, so I had to do it all over again in 160g and 200g paper. I’m very satisfied with the result and look forward to giving her to a distant friend. she is about 170cm tall.

That’s a lot of paper and a lot of time.

Amazing Papercraft and So Can You!

We’ve seen people do amazing things with paper, but this tops them all. These unbelievable pieces from artist Destro2k look like they were pulled straight from the games.

The best part? Destro2k even added tutorials on how to make these awesome pieces. But be warned, they are hard. I couldn’t even make a Companion Cube.

Check out all of the other awesome stuff he’s done, including a Gundam, Eva Unit and more.

I’m gonna go try to make that Arwing now…

Papercraft Eva Unit 01

The Human Instrumentality Project couldn’t engineer this amazing papercraft if they tried. Yes, it transforms into that tank, and yes, that’s an RX-78 in the background. Blasphemy! I kid - I love both Evangelion and Gundam (UC Gundam, that is).

This Is The Hexaflexagon And It’s Totally About To Rock Your Worldview

Discovered by Arthur H. Stone in the 1930’s, the hexaflexagon is basically the origami equivalent of dividing by zero. Or something. Methematic YouTube sorceress Vi Hart explains it better in the video, so just watch.

X-Ray Origami.
Artist Takayuki Hori created a collection of origami entitled Oritsunagumono, which means Things Folded and Connected. He printed out translucent sheets with animal skeletons and discarded human objects. When assembled, the origami comes to life and tells the story of nature’s fight for survival against a polluted ecosystem.
Way more depressing than papercraft of video game characters, but still pretty damn cool.
Check out Designboom for more pics.

This papercraft Figma is mind-blowing. This is a papercraft version of the Figma of Aegis from the game Persona 3 by Plus Kareha. It’s made completely out of paper except for a few bits of ribbon and chain for added detail. And just like real Figmas, this one can be attached to a stand and even has removable accessories. Crazy sauce.
Check out this pic of the actual Aegis Figma for comparison.

Stubby The Papercraft Pencil.
Designed by Matt Hawkins, this easy-to-build papercraft pencil is available to download as Matt’s Free Papertoy of the Month.

Some pencils can just draw, others not so much. I’m not sure how this happens but it does and when you find a pencil that can draw you keep it around. A friend, a collaborator and trusted creative partner. But there is only so much lead a pencil has to give and after many hard fought creative battles it’s left short, used up, stubby. So this papertoy “Stubby” is a tribute to those great pencils past, present and future who so proudly sacrifice there graphite soul in service to the higher creative calling! This is a pretty simple one to build for you who like the easy ones. Hope you enjoy it.
