Super Mario 64 Head

1a5903344f3bf0bef31b2e4dc23ac681It’s a me! Mario!

It was a defining moment in video game history. Mario in glorious 3D! You know this head. It graced the opening screen of Super Mario 64, and and we finally hear Mario speak. You can pinch it and pull it.

And now you can papercraft it! Thanks to Pixel-Kakashi, who was kind enough to indulge my request for a papercraft Mario. It is about 15cm high and just about as wide.

There are some challenging attachments to be made and experienced papercrafters know how tricky it is to close a sphere; this is basically a sphere with a face and hat. I recommend a little experience before attempting to take this on. But it’s not extremely difficult either. Hope you have as much fun building it as I did. Download comes in two paper sizes, Letter size for the peeps in the USA, and A4 for the rest of the world.

Model designed by Pixel-Kakashi.

Download: A4 / Letter

Today really is a good day to release this guy, cause it’s PK’s special day. All of us here at Nintendo Papercraft want to wish him the best.

    ok how the hell are you edges so neatly put together? mine are a pain in the ass and they fall apart and look like crap

    If you are patient and take your time, your crafts will look a lot better. Be sure to use cardstock, not regular printing paper. Don’t use too much glue and use toothpicks to apply it.

    drummy i use card stock but its too big in printer so i print it on paper then glue whole thing on cardstock then build it

    As Drummyralf said in the previous post, patience and the right paper weight(heavyweight paper or card stock) is key.

    And also… good glue. If your crafts are falling apart, you need better glue. I tried a few before settling for the one glue that works best with the way I work. I recommend it if you’re in the US. My favorite is Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue, it’s inexpensive and widely available.

    But try a couple of types of glue to see which one will work best with the way you work. Power Pritt Gel is another one that I use sometimes, and UHU All Purpose. You’ll be surprised at how much the right glue can make a difference.

    Hope that helped.
