I remember as a kid being a fan of most things science fiction, and loving Japanese monster movies particularly: There is something rather charming about a monster, effected by radiation, growing really big then being annoyed by greedy people, subsequently reeking havoc on highly populated areas of Japan.
“Help me Obi Wan Kenobie, you’re my only hope’: This is my second attempt at Tadashi Mori’s “Leia”, a fun fold that does so much with a tortured little piece of paper.
Do or do not, there is no try: This is Stéphane Gigandet’s “Yoda”, a lovely simple Star Wars character fold taken from a video I found on a Chinese version of a ebsite (the English version is here) – try it you should.
…now I am as much a fan of Star Wars as the next browncoat. I loved Orac, thought he was the best little droid sidekick since Starbuck and 7 of 9 was my favourite character in all of the series: This is Tadashi Mori’s “Storm Trooper” – a lovely little clone of a guy from […]
Origami, the final frontier. These are the journeys of the paper folder “Wonko”, his ONE YEAR MISSION, to seek out new models and folding techniques, to boldly fold where he has not folded before: This cutie little Trek-inspired ship was hidden away in a Tanteidan convention book I have and all the annotations are in […]
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 […]
Needing to fold something and having a lovely sheet of Elephant Hide paper means something is going to get creased: I saw this model in a video tutorial just published by Tadashi Mori and knew I had to try it. It reminds me of one of those cute little plastic dolly’s that are all the […]
I will admit it, I have been a Star Wars fan since it was possible to be one. I saw the original movies many times in the cinema DECADES before my kids thought it would be cool to do the same with the new ones: The original 3 movies were special (well, they WERE before […]
This morning I was greeted with the sad news that actor Leonard Nimoy had passed away. Our universe is a little dimmer, missing a bright and shining star. “It’s life, Jim, but not as we know it”: A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP […]
I have been a fan of Star Trek since it was possible to be so, love the franchise, movies, series, the lot. I saw a diagram that resulted in an ATAT (All-Terrain Armoured Transport) – one of many fairly silly designs from The Babylon 5 universe, and with some shaming from a friend (thanks Dodes) I decided […]
