612: (62/365) Minecraft Golden Snitch

Posted by wonko on March 3, 2017 in 365-2017, fantasy, geometry, wtf |

Potter Nerds and Minecraft Nerds unite, for I present to you a “Minecraft” style cubey golden snitch: This buzzy little bugger would be difficult to catch in a full on game of Quidditch indeed. This is Riccardo Foschi’s “CuBird”, an interesting little CP that collapses with a little wrangling to make a lovely little cube and […]

600: (50/365) A Shedload of Models

Posted by wonko on February 19, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, wtf |

For those of you keeping up, you will notice SOME of the posts on this blog have numbers. The first number (in this case 600) represents a catalogue of sorts – it documents the number of new models that I have never folded, before documenting it here: Jo Nakashima’s “6” is new for me, the […]

586: (36/360) Gaikotsu Figure

Posted by wonko on February 5, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid, wtf |

Now I am not really one for card-based rpg/gattle games – Pokemon, Yugioh, Magic the gathering, but I know they have a huge and passionate fan-base. Trolling through a Tanteidan I found a curious little skeletal character and decided to fold it: A modular, in 3 bits (head, shoulders, knees+toes … everybody sing..), it struck […]

584: (34/365) Tadashi Mori’s Facebook “Like”

Posted by wonko on February 3, 2017 in 365-2017, wtf |

Social media, gift that it is, has fundamentally broken two concepts I think. The “friend” and the “like” now no longer mean what they used to, and culturally I am not sure we are not really ready for that change: The “friend” has come to mean some random that stalks you, watching what you do.

571: (21/365) OMG!!!!

Needless to say the media is abuzz with reactions to Trump’s inauguration. Let us hope that the he does not become the “Bane” of their existence (even though part of his speech was plagiarised from the Marvel Universes’ fictitious tyrant presidential coup, I am sure this is merely coincidence): One has to have hope in […]

No Dragon, Just Head

Posted by wonko on December 20, 2016 in dinosaur, fantasy, geometry, paper, reptile, wtf |

Determined not to let Shuki Kato’s “Western Dragon” beat me, I decided to isolate the part of the model that I had failed on each of the 4 times I have attempted this nightmare of bent paper – the head: Using the crease pattern, I isolated the corner that is the head and made that […]


543: Flock

Posted by wonko on August 13, 2016 in bird, geometry, Traditional, wtf |

I try to mark the passing of Hiroshima Day August 6 with respect and effort. Having folded the traditional 1000 cranes twice in my life (oddly, the second time my cranes were “borrowed” by a then campaigning year 11 for a community project where he received the credit and was subsequently elected School Captain … […]

541: Charizard – GO!

Posted by wonko on July 19, 2016 in animal, blarg, dinosaur, fantasy, paper, scifi, wtf |

Now I am not of the generation that grew up with Pokemon, but seem surrounded by adults that were. Fandom/enthusiasm takes many forms and the latest augmented reality game “Pokemon GO!” is so hot right now I felt I had to fold a poke-thing because…reasons I had seen a video tutorial from Tadashi Mori on […]

540: Parliament

Posted by wonko on July 4, 2016 in blarg, domestic, fantasy, humanoid, paper, wtf |

Voting is something democratic societies hold as an important right. Some counties have compulsory voting, most allow citizens to choose whether they want to vote – all too often the result is the same – groups of opinionated, empty-headed people are elected to represent the views of the common people. Anyone who knows me, realises […]

539: Triple Tsuru

Posted by wonko on June 30, 2016 in bird, Traditional, wtf |

Continuing my exploration of Hiden Senbazuru Orikata (The Secret of One Thousand Cranes Origami), published in 1797 I managed to wrangle a triple Tsuru: The original schematic suggests that you use 2 small squares attached to the wings of the larger square, and I cannot fathom whether the dotted lines mean “remove” the unused paper […]
