Young princess Zelda +lots more by minidelirium

11-09-2011: The neat little papercraft princess Zelda you see above was put together by minidelirium from Sweden!

Although she doesn’t make papercraft templates herself, she loves working with her hands and as you can see, she’s very good at assembly! ;o)

In fact, minidelirium actually built a lot more papercraft models, than just paper Zelda, many more from the Legend of Zelda series, but also from other video games and series, ranging from small and simple ones to very big and complex papercraft models!

You can see (part of) the rest of her papercraft collection in this picture (some models she already gave away to friends ;o)

If you look very closely, you can even see American McGee’s Alice too among all the other models! (without the arms though, minidelirium hasn’t made those yet ;o)

But if you really want to get an idea of the full scope of minidelirium’s papercraft collection, all you have to do is take a look at her DeviantArt gallery: link

minidelirium loves that papercraft is such a fun and easy hobby that everybody could do really, so she hopes that her pictures will inspire you to try it out too sometime! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ (and other people’s!) papercraft models!

Paper Mario 3D by Beav3rboy

2013-08-10: Here’s an excellent build of my Paper(craft) Mario 3D again, by Beav3rboy! ;o)

“Paper Mario 3D” is actually only Beav3rboy’s latest addition to his papercraft collection though, he has a whole cabinet filled with papercraft models he built!

And it’s a really broad collection too, ranging from a Star Wars scout trooper on a speederbike to Santa and his sleigh and even a Skyrim Frost Dragon, and lots more cartoon and video game characters!

Don’t believe me? Then check out his DeviantArt gallery and see for yourself: link

I just hope he can still find a spot for his new Paper Mario…! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

American McGee’s Alice and more by Bruno

2013-07-16: Everybody knows the story of the cute, young Alice that falls down a rabbit hole and ends up in a wondrous and magical place called “Wonderland”!

But Bruno likes American McGee’s version of the story of “Alice” better, where she is a bit older and Wonderland is much darker and more… evil…

So that’s why he decided to build my papercraft version of American McGee’s Alice as you can see! ;o)

He was a little bit dreading having to do the hands and the fingers because they looked so difficult, but then he was able to focus himself on the job and he managed to finish them!

If you’re impressed by Bruno’s build of American McGee’s Alice, have a look at his DeviantArt gallery, where you can see many other papercraft models he built already, including my own Kingdom Hearts Sora and the Koume and Kotake witches and Midna from the Zelda series: link!

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Zelda models by Javier

2013-07-01: Javier has been in Rome for a while, and of course he was busy doing other things there than papercraft. ;o)

But now that he’s back, he sent me a new picture of one of my papercraft Zelda models that he built: young Link from Majora’s Mask!

As you can see, Link first went to Kokiri Forest, no doubt to ask advice from the Great Deku Tree. ;o)

To go on a great quest, you need some pocket money though, but luckily in Hyrule money is easy to come by: you just have to cut the grass: picture ;o)

Great job building another papercraft Zelda model again by Javier, and I hope Link has all the rupees he needs now! (because there doesn’t seem any grass left to cut anymore…! ;o)

2013-06-16: Looks like Javier really got bitten by the papercraft bug: here’s another papercraft Zelda model he built already, Majora’s Mask: picture ;o)

Or… could it be that it was actually Majora’s Mask that told him to do it to begin with…?

I’m not sure, but fact is that Javier is having second thoughts about building it, because now the evil mask seems to be watching him while he sleeps: link

15-06-2013: As we suspected, who else but Ganondorf (picture) would have come up with the idea to steal all the colours from Hyrule?

It looks like Link finally found his hideout, and once Ganondorf is done with his “you don’t stand a chance against me!”-speech, we’ll soon see if his adventure has made Link grow strong enough to defeat him once and for all (again)!

Another great build by Javier! ;o)

12-06-2013: Although Javier’s printer’s yellow ink cartridge was empty when he printed the parts to build my papercraft Ocarina of Time adult Link  (I can only suspect Ganondorf is behind it…!) he didn’t let that bother him! ;o)

He built his papercraft Link anyway, and as you can see in the picture, he did a great job: picture

With his Hylian Shield and Master Sword, I’m sure Link will soon defeat Ganondorf and bring back all the colours to Hyrule (as you can see, he already found back the colour “black“! ;o)

Let’s just hope Ganondorf’s evil colour-stealing plans don’t spread to other worlds, like that of Digimon or Pokémon, but as you can see in Javier’s DeviantArt gallery, so far the crafts he made from those series still have all their colours: link ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Link, Sora and Yuna by cdncarlie

18-05-2013: This Ocarina of Time adult Link was the first papercraft model where cdncarlie coloured all the white edges of the paper to get rid of the “white lines” on the final paper model.

Despite the extra time it took, she really likes the result and I think you’ll have to agree that it looks really good! ;o)

Ocarina of Time Link wasn’t the first papercraft model cdncarlie built though: two other paper models of mine that she built are Kingdom Hearts’ Sora and Final Fantasy X-2′s Yunapicture | picture

Yuna is actually an old model already, from March 2009, and at the time, it was the most difficult model cdncarlie did so far!

She gave Yuna away as a gift, but she feels that with all the papercrafting experience she has now (in her DeviantArt gallery, you can see lots more papercraft models she built: link !) she could do an even better job now! ;o)

cdncarlie is a bit of a perfectionist, so she would also like to fix Sora’s Kingdom Key keyblade (it looks a bit crooked) but the problem is that she already gave that one away as a gift too…! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Zelda models by William

12-05-2013: William sent me another picture, showing some new papercraft models he made since last time! ;o)

In the background, right next to Beast Ganon, is my very own Menu Link, the adult version from Ocarina of Time!

And in the top left, you can see the Moon from Majora’s Mask!

It actually took William quite some time to track that one down, because there were different versions at one time, but most of the original download links are gone now… :o(

And once William finally did manage to find a working download link, it turned out the template was incomplete, so he had to improvise and use one of the pages twice to make a complete Moon!

So that was a bit troublesome, but luckily William was able to overcome the problem with some smart thinking. ;o)

Most of the other paper models in the picture are the ones William already showed us before, except maybe one: I think the “Donkey Kong” poster on the wall in the background might actually not be just a poster, but the papercraft diorama piece made by Linkdude101 on Nintendo Papercraft!

16-10-2012: As you can see in this picture, William from Sweden made several more papercraft models since last time, including my own young Princess Zelda!

The other, new paper models you can see are made by billybob884:

  • Nintendo 64 logo (link)
  • Ganon in his beast-form (link)

Especially that last one took up much of his spare time the last three months, but if you see this group picture, you’ll agree that it was time well spent! ;o)

26-03-2012: William built not one, but two new models since last time: picture

The first one is young Link, who was just minding his own business, no doubt on his way to the next adventure, when a big bully suddenly blocked the road (read: bookshelf).

That big bully was of course Ganondorf, but even though he’s almost twice as big as young Link, I think he’s going to regret bullying Link like that… ;o)

04-01-2012: William from Sweden found my papercraft webpage by accident, but he liked the paper models so much that he decided to try it out himself!

These are the two paper models he built: picture

One is Majora’s Mask, and it’s hard to see, but he even made a small loop on its back so he can hang it on his wall.

I know what you’re thinking of course, but I think William doesn’t have to be afraid of Majora‘s evil powers in the mask: Fierce Deity Link will deal with Majora if he tries anything suspicous! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Young princess Zelda by DanteSagittariKnight

21-04-2013: This wonderful version of young princess Zelda was built by DanteSagittariKnight from Chile!

Even though the picture is a bit dark, you can see how DanteSagittariKnight chose not to make sharp folds of all the fold lines on the templates.

As a result, you get a papercraft princess Zelda that’s a bit more smoother looking, and I think it looks great! ;o)

If you want to see more great things, you can visit DanteSagittariKnight’s DeviantArt gallery, where you can see several other papercraft models that he built, and also the drawings he made: link

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Ocarina of Time adult Link by Metallica005

08-04-2013: Although my papercraft Ocarina of Time adult Link has “only” 57 parts (including the Hylian Shield and the Master Sword), Metallica005 says it felt like there were 100! ;o)

It took him 8 hours to fold and glue them all together, but with the experience he has in making cosplay props (as you can see on his DeviantArt page: link), it’s no surprise that his papercraft Link turned out great too!

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Zelda models by Jose Vazquez

15-02-2013: Jose built my papercraft Twilight Link before, but as you can see, this time he made some changes so he could put his arm in a different position!

This way, Link can be in a more relaxed stance (maybe a bit too relaxed even…? ;o)
picture

Jose also opened up the top of the sheath on Link’s back, so the Master Sword can be put inside: picture

Why he needed to do that? Well, it’s so that Link can also use other weapons like this Ball and Chain from the Paper Zelda website: picture

It’s a good thing it’s only made from paper, because otherwise getting hit by that thing would cause some serious headaches…! ;o)

18-11-2012: Here’s another Ocarina of Time adult/Menu Link), this time built by Jose Vazquez: picture

As you can see, Jose even made it so that he can put the Hylian Shield on Link’s back and the Master Sword into the scabbard.

Adult/Menu Link is not the first paper model that Jose built: some other papercraft models of mine that he built include Epona and Link, Twilight Link, Zora armor Link (which he modified a bit just like Toni Müller did) and even Super Smash Bros. Melee Link!

Jose also built lots of paper models from other people too, like another Ocarina of Time Link (from Icthus7), a Hylian Knight (from Nintendo Papercraft) and a recoloured Twilight Princess > Skyward Sword Link (from Paper Zelda): group picture

You can also see a few videos of Jose’s builds on his YouTube channel, so be sure to check it out: link

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Legend of Zelda models by Sean Fogarty

28-11-2012: You can never have too many papercraft Links, Sean must have thought! ;o)

From left to right in the back row you can see a few Links from my own papercraft webpage:

And in the front row, you can see two papercraft Links made by Chokipeta as a bonus gift in the Japanese Nintendo magazine Dengeki some years ago:

  • Wind Waker Link
  • Four Sword Adventures Link

But even though they’re all from different games, as you can see, they’re getting along very nicely! ;o)

14-11-2012: Another group picture of papercraft Link(s): picture

This time it’s Epona Link, Melee Link, and the new Menu Link that I only finished a few days ago!

Epona Link and Melee Link are models that Sean already built earlier, and he only needs to do a few more parts on Menu Link and then he’ll have finished all three regular adult Links I made so far. ;o)

05-11-2012: Now here’s something you don’t see in your average Zelda game…: picture

Ocarina of Time Epona Link, Super Smash Bros. Melee Link, and Majora’s Mask Link have killed a big wolf and are planning to eat its head…?!

But hopefully they will realize that the wolf is actually wolf Link, the alternate form of Twilight Princess Link (“Um, guys…?”) and refrain from eating him…! ;o)

18-10-2012: Sean told me about the new papercraft models he made earlier, and here’s a picture of his 2 favourite models: picture

You’ll recognize them as Link from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Auron, from Final Fantasy X of course. ;o)

They’re both characters that don’t take any nonsense, so it’s a good thing Sean did such a great job building them! ;o)

Update 14-10-2012: Sean tells me he has been quite busy, building two of my most challenging papercraft models (which both happen to be Legend of Zelda models) namely Super Smash Bros. Melee Link and wolf Link!

He also built the black mage Lulu, from Final Fantasy X , but of course he’s still a Zelda fan, so he also built Majora’s Mask and a Spirit Tracks Phantom, from the Paper Zelda website. ;o)

Update 18-08-2012: Sean has been busy building Sora, Cloud and Auron as well! (he tells me Auron is his new, favourite papercraft model! ;o)

Videos of Sora are already on his Youtube channel again (video 1 | video 2) and more videos are on the way! ;o)

Update 12-07-2012: Sean let me know that he made two other papercraft Zelda models besides the two already mentioned!

Before making Twilight Link, he already made Zora armor Link, and after young Link, he also made Oni Link. ;o)

He uploaded a new video of those two here: link

Don’t forget to check out his other videos, he has some tips on building young Link too! ;o)

11-07-2012: Sean told me about a video he made of the papercraft Majora’s Mask young Link that he built!

Here’s a screenshot of it, and the full video can be found here: link

But wait: Sean built Twilight Princess Link too! ;o) That video can be on his Youtube channel as well: link

That one took him about 4 days to make, and I think he did a great job on both of them!

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Sora + Zelda models by Angélique

23-11-2012: Angélique showed me this picture of my papercraft Sora that she built, taken on top of her keyboard synthesizer!

Maybe Sora is a bit confused, because a keyboard is completely different from a keyblade of course…! ;o)

Because Angélique normally builds much bigger papercraft models, Sora was a bit more challenging than she was used to, but as you can see, Sora turned out really great nonetheless: picture 2 | picture 3

And now you are all probably dying to see all the other papercraft models built by Angélique?

Well you’re in luck, because she made a whole site dedicated to her papercraft hobby: Papercraft Lilik ! ;o)

If you look in the Zelda section there, you can see a few more of my papercraft models that Angélique built, like Epona and Link, Midna, young Link from Majora’s Mask, young princess Zelda and Twilight Link, but be sure to visit the rest of Angelique’s papercraft weblog as well to see all her other models!

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ (and other people’s! ;o) papercraft models!

Zelda models by Ray Tha Man

22-11-2012: I made a few papercraft Links before, but this is the latest one (Ocarina of Time adult/Menu Link), built by Ray Tha Man! ;o)

As you can see, it turned out really great! Ray also built my King of Red Lions earlier: picture

The figurehead was the hardest part on that one, but it looks very good as well! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Epona & Link by Rijali

05-11-2012: Rijali from Indonesia sent me this picture of the papercraft Epona and Link that he built!

He even scaled down the templates a bit by printing them on A5 paper instead of A4 paper!

He says he found it easy to build and when it was finished, it looked great!

I have to agree with him when I see the picture, Rijali really did a great job building Epona and Link! ;o)

Here’s a picture from the other side: picture 2

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Link & Epona by Raylene

12-10-2012: Raylene uses the name legendarydragonstar on her DeviantArt page, because she really loves dragons!

But as you can see, she really likes the Legend of Zelda too! ;o)

She built my papercraft Epona + Link, and she did a really great job too because as you can see, they both look great!

You might be wondering why they both look so blackened, but maybe that’s because they’ve just had a close encounter with the fiery breath of that purple dragon in the picture…?

Still though, I don’t think Link would ever run away from a dragon like that!

(although I do have to note, that the game-Link that always goes straight after fire-breathing dragons isn’t made out of paper like this one of course… ;o)

In Raylene’s DeviantArt gallery you can find several more papercraft models she built, and don’t be surprised to see a few dragons! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Zelda models by Floriaski

29-05-2012: After building her first papercraft model only a little while ago, Floriaski already built 2 new ones!

Or rather, you could say she built 3 new ones, because as you can see, one of them is Link riding Epona, which is actually two models in one I guess. ;o)

The other new model that Floriaski built, is Majora’s Mask itself: picture

It’s a small and relatively simple model, but a lot of people seem to like building it. Or maybe the voices they start hearing after they’ve stared into the mask’s eyes too long tell them they have to build it…?

If you can pull yourself away from the mesmerizing stare of Majora’s Mask long enough, you can find the bigger pictures and more artwork in Floriaski’s DeviantArt gallery: link

23-05-2012: Floriaski really likes the Zelda series, so one day, she decided to built my young Link papercraft model: picture

It’s the first papercraft model she ever made, so she used the version with fold lines to make it a little easier for herself.

I think she did a great job, and maybe she will build more paper models now? ;o) But only if she can find the time of course, because she also likes to draw a lot!

If you want to see Floriaski’s drawings, you should definately check out her DeviantArt gallery: link

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Zelda models by AseraRose

11-05-2012: AseraRose hadn’t been able to do much papercrafting because of school and work, but now she finally finished a new one: Super Smash Bros. Melee Link!

I think it’s the most challenging model I made so far because it has so many tiny parts, but AseraRose found it “relatively easy” and only the fingers were “a bit finicky”! ;o)

I guess building all those other Zelda models gave her lots of experience to build this one: Aserarose says building the hands on her other Link made it a lot easier to make Melee Link’s hands too!

In fact, the most difficult parts she found were the guard and pommel on the Master Sword, but all in all, she enjoyed building Super smash Bros Melee Link and the base for him to stand on, and I think she can be really proud of the result!

13-07-2010: AseraRose sent me a couple of pictures of the papercraft Zelda models that she built.

She found the head and hair of wolf Link pretty difficult to make because the parts kept coming apart, but she solved that by taping the glueing tabs inside the body.

And to prevent Midna’s head falling off, she stuck a toothpick down her neck (it’s a good thing paper models feel no pain I guess… ;o)

But AseraRose built more models! From Twilight Princess, she also made Zora armor Link, and from Majora’s Mask, she built Fierce Deity Link.

And last but not least, she also made Link’s nemesis, Ganondorf, from Ocarina of Time. Here’s a picture of these three models together.

AseraRose is already thinking about building another model, so maybe we’ll see more of her builds in the future!

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Batman by Lionel Cousseau

02-04-2012: Here’s the first papercraft Batman for the hall of fame!

As you can see, it’s the Animated Series version with the blue cape (I also made a New Batman Adventures version with a black cape).

Lionel’s papercraft Batman looks great, and he tells me he had a lot of fun building it, but he did assemble it in a slightly different order than I did in the instructions:

- Lionel found it easier to glue the torso to the legs *before* glueing on the head.

- And he also found it easier to glue the hands to the arms *before* glueing the arms to the torso.

I always base the part numbers and instructions on the way I assemble the paper models myself, but if you find it easier to do it a different way like Lionel, don’t hesitate to experiment a bit of course! ;o)

28-03-2010: Lionel from France sends me this great picture of Ganondorf: picture

But besides that one, he also built young Link and young princess Zelda!

He tells me he found them challenging to make, but that the end result was worth it (“awesome !!!”, in his own words ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Captain Linebeck by EldeTabernas

25-12-2011: You didn’t think Eldetabernas stopped building paper models, did you? ;o)

Last time he build a LEGO Pirate captain, this time it’s another sea captain, from The Legend of Zelda Phantom Hourglass: the fearless (or so he keeps telling others…) Captain Linebeck!

As captain of the S.S. Linebeck, he ferries Link from island to island over the Great Sea, and from the looks of it they’ll be visiting Madagascar soon! (watch out for penguins! ;o)

Great job building Linebeck!

12-05-2011: This time Eldetabernas built a paper model that’s not from a video game (well, if you don’t count the 1998 video game LEGO Racers… ;o)

It’s the coolest pirate LEGO ever made, captain Redbeard! Although he’s missing a leg, a hand and an eye, he’s still smiling: picture

Like all LEGO products, minifigs can be disassembled and assembled again in seperate parts, and Eldetabernas made a video showing that this papercraft version is no different: link ;o)

08-03-2011: With the problems with the mast and sail solved, Eldetabernas still wasn’t done with the King of Red Lions! ;o)

This time, he built the special sea base and the Chokipeta Wind Waker Link that Josh Darrah made (link).

I think they look very good, and fit perfectly with my King of Red Lions model! Here are two pictures: picture 1 | picture 2

To see a video of Eldetabernas’ King of Red Lions with the new sea base and some videos from the game (Eldetabernas didn’t want to cut the catchy music short ;o) go here!

25-02-2011: We already saw that Eldetabernas built the King of Red Lions again using stronger paper than the first time, but the sail was still causing the mast to bend because it was so heavy

Now, he also solved that problem, by rebuilding the mast and sail and using two, long toothpicks and a Chinese chopstick to reinforce the parts from the inside!

So now, the mast is no longer bent: picture 1! He even made a schematic to show you how he did it: picture 2

He also didn’t glue on the backside of the sail this time to reduce the weight (because like he says: “it’s heavy and you can’t see that part!” ;o)

And as you can see it was well worth going back and re-building the mast and sail again: now the mast is perfectly straight!

Great work again!

16-02-2011: Eldetabernas sent me a message that together with two of his friends, he started a papercraft weblog of his own: Papercrafteros!

On their new weblog, they will showcase the paper models they built, so if his friends are just as big a papercraft enthustiacs as himself, I’m sure we will be seeing *a lot* of pictures there! ;o)

The blog is in Spanish, but you can use a tool to translate it or just look at the pictures! ;o)

29-01-2011: Besides sending me this picture and video of the papercraft Wind Waker Fishman (made by the Papercraft Couple) that he built, Eldetabernas also made a video tour of the artwork in his house – including all the paper models he built of course! ;o)

Here’s the link if you want to watch it too!

13-01-2011: You recognize this guy of course, it’s-a Mario! ;o) Built by Eldetabernas, and this time he also made a video!

You can see it on YouTube here: video

19-12-2010: Like so many papercrafters, Eldetabernas ran out of room to put his paper models… ;o)

His dad made two new shelves for him, but I think he will need even more shelves if he keeps building so fast: shelves picture ;o)

28-11-2010: More paper models by Eldetabernas! Besides remaking his Clocktown Schnauzer in less than 2 hours (here’s a picture of it together with young Link) he also built some other models since last time:

06-11-2010 EldeTabernas made another paper model; this time it’s Cloud Strife from my Final Fantasy / Kingdom Hearts series!

The hair and the boots were the most challenging parts he says, but I think he did a great job on those: picture 2 | picture 3

30-10-2010: This time EldeTabernas didn´t make a Legend of Zelda model, but the Nintendo Zapper light gun! picture 1 | picture 2

17-10-2010: EldeTabernas worked pretty fast, and he already finished the rest of the King of Red Lions! Unfortunately the mast still wasn’t strong enough for the sail, but I think it looks great nonetheless: picture 1 | picture 2

14-10-2010: In the first picture that he sent me, you can see that EldeTabernas already built the King of Red Lions once, but now he is building a new version out of stronger paper!

Because there are a lot of small parts on the figurehead, the King of Red Lions is definately one of my most challenging models, but that isn’t stopping EldeTabernas: picture 1 | picture 2

09-10-2010: Here’s another Legend of Zelda model built by EldeTabernas: Twilight Link!

He used regular printer paper, and except for the hands that required some extra patience, he didn’t find it very difficult and enjoyed making it. ;o)

02-10-2010: EldeTabernas from Spain sends me this picture of the Zelda models he made so far to show his progress:

The Clocktown Schnauzer dog, Majora’s Mask (center) and the King of Red Lions (right) were the first paper models he made, and his latest ones are wolf Link and the Postman! (both on the left)

Here are some more pictures, of one of his first builds, and one of his latest build:
King of Red Lions | Clock Town Postman

He is rightfully proud of his latest two builds I think, and even though he feels his first models aren’t as good, I hope he enjoyed making them! ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Zelda models by Leah

29-11-2011: This picture of Epona and Link is from Leah (a.k.a. AlphaWolfKodijr on DeviantArt)

She found Link‘s face a bit difficult to build, but she really likes Epona, and she didn’t just build it once, but twice before she was satisfied with it! ;o)
picture 2picture 3

But Leah actually built many more papercraft models! Another one of my own Zelda series is the mule that pulls Cremia’s milk wagon during the “Milk Road Run” sidequest in Majora’s Mask: picture

If you want to see bigger pictures of Leah’s Epona and Link or mule, or the other papercraft models she built, you can visit her DeviantArt papercraft gallery here: link

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ (and other people’s ;o) papercraft models!

Kingdom Hearts & Zelda models by Joshua

30-10-2011: This time, Joshua sent me a group picture of all the papercraft models he built so far! From left to right they are:

For some of the models, he used a technique called “edge-colouring” to get rid of the white lines you get from the thickness of the paper.

It’s a little bit of extra work of course, but as you can see on his paper model of Cloud, the result is great: picture

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

25-10-2011: It took Joshua 15 hours to build his papercraft Kingdom Hearts Sora, and I think he did a really good job: picture

It isn’t the first papercraft model that Joshua built: before Sora, he also built Link and Epona (so that’s actually two models ;o) and now he’s building Oogie Boogie, from Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas (and Kingdom Hearts).

I think maybe it’s for Halloween? ;o) But I’m sure it’s also because he likes the Kingdom Hearts game (because it really is a great game! ;o)

Oogie Boogie, Homer and Zelda models by Khalid

30-05-2011: Another picture of Khalid; he has built quite a few paper models already! From left to right, they are:

Who knows what he may built next! ;o)

20-05-2011: Khalid is a fast builder! While he was waiting for me to post his pictures of Twilight Link, he already made another paper model: Oogie Boogie!

Here are two pictures of both of them together: picture 1 | picture 2

And here’s but also one of Oogie Boogie alone: picture

Although I did make Oogie Boogie a bit easier to build than Twilight Link, Khalid must still have worked pretty fast to finish it so quickly! ;o)

18-05-2011: This papercraft Link from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was built by Khalid.

Khalid had some trouble to get the small fingers right at first, but as you can see in the picture, in the end he really did to do a very good job on them, so that Link can hold his Master Sword and Hylian Shield!

He showed me several more pictures, including these close-ups of Link’s upper body and head: picture 2 | picture 3

So luckily, Khalid didn’t give up on making the fingers, and I think he can be very proud of his papercraft Twilight Link! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Paper Mario by Aaron Mears

16-05-2011: Aaron found some time again to do some more papercrafting this weekend, and he decided to build my 3D Paper Mario!

The picture was taken in computer class: Aaron’s classmates (and his teacher ;o) are always very impressed whenever he brings with him another one of his builds! ;o)

09-05-2011: After all the Zelda models that Aaron built earlier, this time he made an Advance Wars unit!

Although he never played the game, he liked the look of the Orange Star Fighter I made recently, so he decided to printed it off and and build it! ;o)

His pictures really show the scale of my papercraft Advance Wars units, most of them easily fit your hand: picture 1 | picture 2

This has its advantages, of course: for instance, you don’t have to invest in expensive Anti-Air units and Missiles anymore, since you can just pluck enemy Fighters from the sky should they be foolish enough to attack you: picture ;o)

04-08-2010: We had already seen Aaron’s wolf Link, but now he also built Midna: picture

Although I really made her to fit on the back of wolf Link, Aaron tells me she is also quite comfortable on the armrest of the chair that he made himself: picture

20-12-2009: Aaron’s thirst for Zelda models is far from satisfied yet, as he also built Hero outfit Link now! Here he is together with Zora armor Link, and here’s a picture of it alone.

22-10-2009: Two new models by Aaron Mears! The first one is princess Zelda, and the second one is wolf Link. Aaron has been working on them off and on all during summer break, and a month into school. So that’s how many Zelda models already? Well, you can see in this groupshot!

01-07-2009 Aaron promised me he’d send some new pictures, and here they are! The first one is a rebuild of young Link that he did earlier. I guess he just wanted to make it *perfect* (and now he also repainted the sheeth to make it look like the blade of the sword! ;o)

The second one is Fierce Deity Link. You can see another Fierce Deity Link in super deformed style in the picture, it’s a repaint of ChokiPETA’s Four Swords Link and can be downloaded from here.

The final one in this update is my newest model, Zora armor Link. I’m very glad to see that most people find it relatively easy to build, and the results like this one are usually great as well! ;o)

09-06-2009: More paper Zelda models from Aaron! This time it’s the King of Red Lions. And Aaron also built Josh Darrah’s Great Sea Base! (picture)

17-05-2009: I guess Aaron forgot to mention he also built my Epona & Link models! ;o) You can see them here, together with young Link and another Link from a different papercraft creator (which you can download here). If I remember correctly, it was made with Tenkai, the predecessor of Pepakura Designer.

And that concludes the random trivia lesson for today. ;o)

10-05-2009: Aaron sends me a few pictures of the young Link papercraft model he built. The small treasure chest he’s trying to open in this picture, can be found here (but it’s probably just another Small Key again, that you can only use in this dungeon… ;o)

Aaron also built the Clock Town Schnauzer model from my website. When Link is transformed into a Deku Scrub, it growls at you and attacks you, but after Link is transformed back to normal, the both of them get along just fine, as you can see in this picture.

The last picture shows that when Link is not playing with dogs, he likes to play King Arthur and pull swords out of stones. If you want to try yourself, you can download the template for the Master Sword and pedestal here.

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Super Smash Bros. Melee Link by MundoPapercraft1

22-02-2011: My Super Smash Bros. Melee Link is one of the most challenging models I made so far, with a lot of tiny parts.

It took MundoPapercraft1 two weeks to finish it, but I think he did a very good job! You can see a video with more close-ups on his YouTube channel.

MundoPapercraft1 also built my young princess Zelda and Majora’s Mask models, and also models he made from other people, all of which you can see in his DeviantArt gallery!

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ paper models!

young princess Zelda by Tiffany

18-01-2011: Tiffany is a big Ocarina of Time fan, so she decided to try out my young princess Zelda papercraft model!

She used regular printer paper (because she found it easier to work with ;o) and you can see she only made sharp/crisp folds where she really needed too, like the ears and the nose.

That way, princess Zelda’s dress is much smoother and I think it looks very good!

And now she can get a nice place amongst Tiffany’s other Zelda memorabilia! ;o)

Thank you for building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!

Paper Mario by Lauren

26-12-2010: only a couple of days after I released it, Lauren already sent me this picture of the paper Mario she built: a very fast and a very good build! ;o)

13-10-2010: after taking a break for a couple of months, Lauren decided to make a new paper model again, and I’m of course very proud that she chose my Majora’s Mask Postman! ;o)

07-01-2010: I don’t know if it’s the extra practice or just her talent for papercraft, but the Underworld wetsuit Lara from Tomb Raider Lauren made after that turned out very good too: picture 1 | picture 2 !

And not only that, but Lauren also decided to build young Link and princess Zelda a second time and do an even better job!

31-12-2009: Lauren sent me some pictures of her Twilight Princess Link !

Although the thinner cardstock she used made it a bit more difficult using the little slots and tabs on the head, I think it looks great! Here you can see it in anticipation for the New Year’s Day fireworks! ;o)

18-10-2009: Here’s a very nice build of Lara’s Extreme Depth Suit (although Lauren couldn’t find a suited transparant sheet to make the helmet visor, the opaque versions looks pretty neat as well! ;o)

And Lauren must be a Simpsons fan as well, because look who we have here: it’s Homer Simpson himself! ;o) And something totally different, but also a great build: she also made my new Final Fantasy Moomba doll!

21-06-2009: I only just uploaded my newest Zora armor Link model two days ago, and Lauren already sent me some new pictures of her completed ZaL! And I know what you’re thinking, but it doesn’t look rushed at all! picture 1 | picture 2 | picture 3

13-04-2009: another non-Zelda model from Lauren, it’s my newest Cloud model. She glued on the legs last so she could work out a good balance, and although she says the hair and fingers gave her some troubles, you wouldn’t say so from just the picture I think, anyway. ;o)

20-01-2009: Lauren revealed to me that Ganondorf and Epona & Link weren’t the first models she made: she also did Fierce Deity Linkyoung princess Zeldayoung Link and Majora’s Mask, Midna and wolf Link, and (surprise! ;o) a non-Zelda model as well, namely, Lara Croft.

18-01-2009: I think we got Lauren pretty well hooked on papercraft now, because so shortly after Ganondorf, she also made Epona & Link (see the picture here) in just 2 days, and she’s already planning the next one! ;o)

14-01-2009: The first pictures Lauren sent me, were of her Ganondorf model, and it was very good one!

She told me she had a lot of fun building him, but I also think you can also tell by the quality of the build! ;o)

It’ll probably come as no surprise to you that Lauren is pretty creative: if you have time you should check out her Deviantart gallery with lots of nice computer paintings including several from the Legend of Zelda!

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Link & Ganondorf by Jeff

22-10-2010: Jeff built two of my Zelda models: young Link and the Great King of Evil Ganondorf!

It kinda looks like he’s telling them to get along in this picture, but I’m not sure they’ll listen…!

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

rotating Kurt Zisa by Dan Hilse

17-07-2010: Dan made this animated gif to show off his Kurt Zisa from all angles! He did the same for his Zora armor Link, but to see that one, you will have to visit his DeviantArt gallery: link

18-04-2010: Dan did a great job building Kotake and Koume! Using a barely visible piece of string, he made it look like they’re really flying around in his room!

At least that’s what I think he did; for his sake, I hope they’re not real witches…!

17-12-2009: This is Dan showing off his freshly mown lawn. ;o) He didn’t say though whether he did it himself, or that Link has a bag full of Rupees, Potions and Hearts right now…! ;o)

22-11-2009: Zora armor Link is Dan’s first build from Twilight Princess. He said he took extra care building that one and it really paid off, because it looks “really good!”

20-11-2009: By now, Dan has plenty of papercrafting practice! ;o) Printed off and assembled in just two days, Dan’s other models don’t seem to be scared by his new Oogie Boogie (maybe they know it’s just a paper one…?)

05-09-2009: Speaking of Dan’s other models, this Kurt Zisa really is a great build: it looks wonderful, but that’s not surprising because he had a lot of practice! ;o)

23-08-2009: And let’s not forget Homer Simpson as part of Dan’s paper model collection as well!

06-06-2009: Taking a break fom building Final Fantasy models, Dan also built not on, not two, but several of my Zelda models! In the picture he sent me, you can recognize young Link, princess Zelda herself, Majora’s Mask and the Clock Town Schnauzer of course.

I know you’ve never seen the darker dog, because that’s Dan’s own recolor of the Clock Town Schnauzer to make it look like the common ones found at night at Hyrule Castle in Ocarina of Time!

02-06-2009: And here’s another one for Dan to be proud of: it’s Cloud Strife Kingdom Hearts style! It’s looking at least as good as Auron, maybe it has something to do with the motivation he got from watching his brother play Final Fantasy 7 while he built it? ;o)

23-05-2009: This is Auron, built by Dan Hilse. Dan says he had “a lot of fun building it!” and he’s “really proud of the results!” and really, who wouldn’t be? ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!

Zelda models by Francesco de Renzio

04-07-2010: More papercraft Zelda goodness from Francesco, this time it’s Koume and Kotake, the two witches!

05-06-2010: Francesco sent me new pictures of Fierce Deity Link, Wolf Link, and Link & Epona!

04-01-2010: I was right in assuming Francesco not being done with papercraft yet, because as you can see now he has also built Link, the Hero of Twilight!

31-08-2009: Francesco is a big Zelda fan and here’s the proof: he built all these papercraft models!

Zora armor LinkGanondorf, the King of Red Lions (including Josh Darrah’s Great Sea stand!) Majora’s Mask, Midna, young Link and young princess Zelda as well!

And I have a feeling he’s not done yet… ;o)

Thank you for building these Ninjatoes’ papercraft models!
