784: (234/365) Fold-me Elmo

Posted by wonko on August 22, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Flipping through Tanteidan convention books I have I came across a delightful little figure that was screaming to be folded in orange: This is Riki Saito’s “Mr Puppet Man”, but I reckon he looks a lot like “Elmo” so I am calling it so. (On second thoughts, isn’t Elmo Red? Oh well, never mind)

780: (230/365) Bernie Peyton’s Woman In A Burqa

Elected members of the senate have a responsibility to represent their constituents: When an elected member plans and then executes a stunt designed to trivialise, demonise and poke fun at an Islamic traditional garment some women choose to wear, I find deeply it offensive.

769: (219/365) Male Monarch

Posted by wonko on August 7, 2017 in 365-2017 |

The most fragile and protected piece on the Chess board is the King: I find it interesting that the king has almost the least maneuverability of any piece (bar pawn), yet is often put in the position of having to run for his life from more mobile pieces near end-game.

768: (218/365) Queenie

My favourite on-screen monarch of all time is Miranda Richardson’s character “Queenie” from “The Black Adder II”: She portrayed an incredible mix of insanity, toddler and antichrist which will always make me giggle.

767: (217/365) The Bish’

It is a well known fact that the clergy can be shifty: Moving on the diagonal, rather than straight up and down, this i the Bishop.

766: (216/365) Horsie

The knight is the most awkward of the court pieces at times, with it’s trademark “L” shaped move: I play reverse chess with a mate (*waves to Winston O’Boogie*) – the aim of reverse chess is to LOSE everything but the king. I find the Knight useful in this game indeed.

765: (215/365) I’m the king of the CASTLE …

Posted by wonko on August 3, 2017 in 365-2017, animal |

Continuing the exploration of court pieces, we move on from the Pawn to the Rook or Castle: I like this series – there is a visual similarity with the bases on all of these pieces and the tops are fairly easy to recognise. this one has a simple geometric turret atop the pillar.

We begin another Chess set, this time designed by Mark Kirschenbaum. This is his Pawn: A lovely little figurative foot soldier, lovely circular base and an interesting fold.

760: (210/365) Akiko Yamanashi’s Scallop Box

To celebrate the 201st fold in this challenge, I was looking for a shellfish-based fold – not sure why but there you go: Leafing through a Tanteidan Convention book, I came across a “Scallop Box” design designed by Akiko Yamanashi.

754: (204/365) Gaff’s Blade Runner Chicken

Posted by wonko on July 23, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, bird, fantasy |

My top 5 movies of all time includes the Sci-Fi classic “Blade Runner”. A couple of times during the movie, to confirm a character’s opinion of Deckard’s actions, his sidekick “Gaf” left an origami figure: One was actually folded by the actor (Edward James Olmos) – a gum wrapper was fashioned into a Chicken. He […]
