789: (239/365) Trojan Helmet

While scanning Deviantart for an entirely different reason (replying to comments on some of my works there) it’s algorithm decided I needed to see some of Cahoona’s folds and this delightful helmet was among them:

Although it does not appear that way, this CP is deceptively simple.

An offset waterbomb base and a colour change for the plume and you are nearly there.

Some cleverly placed crimps, reminiscent of the “make extra petals in the rose shapes” of Sato roses, which is clever indeed.

The asymmetric crimps cause curves that make the helmet shape suitable to protect a noggin.

Cahoonas is a prolific designer, he also shares his designs freely – the origami community should be grateful indeed.
