This model is the result of a collaboration between me and Squeezycheesecake for Nintendo Papercraft. Throughout the years I’ve always dreamed of having this as a papercraft. It’s been attempted in the past but to no avail. The original model files are easy to find on the internet- but everything is stuck in a T-pose, and the cloak would cause obvious headaches from day one. Thanks to some rigging by Squeezy we got it into a simple pose and set to work simplifying, editing and cleaning textures. Fast forward a bit and now it’s finally complete, standing 48-49cm tall with 16 pages.
There’s a lot I could talk about on construction but I’ll keep it short since there’s a lot of info in the notes and on PDO/PDF #1. This is a complex model, so make sure you have some experience and correct materials for crafting. The instructions are pretty detailed but use of the PDO is highly recommended. Finally, we really recommend colouring the back of the cloak a cyan colour to avoid a massive white surface (likewise, the hood and skirt insides benefit from colouring black). Some ideas on how to do this are written in the notes.
