Origami Yoda

    Newer Older

    Serious business, origami is.

    No no, this did not come from the Origami Calendar box!

    This was something I folded three-and-a-half years ago while bored one night and not studying. It took three painstaking hours to fold.

    He stands at 4.5in (11.5cm) tall and was folded from an A3 square- approximately 12x12in (30x30cm)!

    If I had a larger green square, I'd totally do it again.

    This is by all means not perfect. I took a shortcut with his hand as the paper was too hard to fold. There's a visible bit of sticky tape I used to keep his cloak closed. And he's all green... I'd give him a brown coat if I could!

    So yeah, I'm pretty serious about origami, and now's my chance to get back into it again.

    I found the instructions here soon after they were posted.

    My original photos can also be seen here.

      This is the best origami design, hands down. It was definitely worth the 3.5 hours, and the photography does Origami Yoda justice. Very nice work all around. I really enjoyed this!
