3D Origami Continued - A Mixture of Characters

And so I carry on making more 3D origami!! I feel like I've started a club of people making 3D origami all of a sudden. It's become a new hobby for some... And it's become my part-time job earning a few British pounds making these. 

Before I started a big challenge, I made Domo-Kun. I love this Japanese character! This was easy to make, and didn't take me long to do.

The big challenge was making Winnie The Pooh which took me a week to make with some breaks in between. I looked this one up on a YouTube video, but made some amendments as I think the person was using a different type of paper to the one I was using. It now sits in my colleagues office. Whenever I pass her room, I'm always looking a it. So proud of myself. ^_^
Winnie The Pooh... This is so cute!!

I wanted to make Pikachu as well - he's one of my favourite Pokémon characters! This one's for me! I actually forgot to make the two black stripes and the tail, so I had to take him apart and redo his back, head, and tail, and then re-add his facial features on.

Since Miss Pinky didn't win the set of Family Guy characters, I asked her who her favourite character was (I thought she liked Meg Griffin but it wasn't) and I will make it for her birthday... she said it was Glenn Quagmire... Really?!! His head was the difficult part to make, as he has a frog face.

Next I wanted to make a tiny Hello Kitty again. It's so cute, and I gave it away to one of my colleagues. Changed a few details to the first one I made.

At this point I had a big break, but whilst on holiday, I started cutting up a free Chinese newspaper at the hotel, and made this Newspaper Hello Kitty... I completed the body on the plane coming home, and then finished the head back at home in London.

Next was a Christmas challenge from Hannah from The Review Addict!! I made Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer!! It's similar to Brian from Family Guy, but it has antlers which are super-glued onto the head... Oh difficult.

One of my colleagues pestered me to make a Me-To-You Bear, so I made a small one which took me two days to make! So cute!! She wants a big one now... Maybe later in the year... Might make one small version for myself too...

A friend had challenged me to make Sandro the Footballer. My friend is a Tottenham Hotspurs fan, so I made him... It was hard finding the right paper for his face and legs. But I bought this caramel brown on eBay... Is my friend going to buy it? Unfortunately there was no mention of it... Oh well.
Sandro... doesn't look like him

Another friend challenged me to make John Herbert from Family Guy! Herbert?! Who the heck is Herbert?!! :-S ... Uh, when my friend explained, oh geez, you really want this character... so be it!! This was fun to make, the head was easy to make, there's three parts to it, and then the zimmerframe was probably the hardest thing to make as there was a lot of super-gluing going on there. And then Miss Pinky and Mr B (the friend from work) explained to me that Herbert has a dog called Jesse too... Hmmm... He will take me forever to make, so I traced the outline from an Internet picture and stuck him on front of the zimmerframe. :P This is probably my best 3D origami creation!

Then the person who wanted Winnie The Pooh also wanted a plane for her son... Oh boy! This wasn't too hard to make. I used a couple of videos to help me out with the design and the wings. Just sticking those wings took a lot of extra effort and attention. It was supposed to look like a fighter plane, but I think I will try the nose part another time. Creating missiles was kind of difficult too. How do you make missiles with paper? Heheheh.

Then person who I made my very first 3D origami character (my first Hello Kitty) wanted a chicken for her daughter as she's nicknamed 'chicken'. I ended up making four small ones, as they didn't take that long to make. A family of four different characters. I named them in Chinese on Instagram, and have put their English names here. ^_^

Poached / White Cut Chicken
Now I have started charging my friends and colleagues £5 for one character. Small ones I think I will charge £2.50 as they don't take long to make.

All the unwanted characters I will sell at the end of 2014 and will donate some or all of the money to a charity.

Right, I must start the South Park characters... Mr Picky wants them, so he gets them!! (And Miss Pinky will probably not hear the end of it until I've made them all. Hahahahah).

  1. I love this post and thanks so much for the mention. I am addicted to 3D origami thanks to you lol. I'm making an Eiffel Tower at the moment which sounded simple but is proving quite tricky!
    Can't wait to see your latest creations!
