    1. I would certainly hope not! ;o) The paper mask is pretty small though, so I don’t think it’ll have enough power anyway (plus there are no evil spirits living it, as far as I know…?)

  1. Did you design the model using Pepakura? If so, could you publish the pepakura file here? That would be very appreciated!

    1. Although I did make this model using Pepakura Designer, I didn’t make one, proper Pepakura *.pdo file that would let you build this model, sorry…

      After testbuilding my models, I always make lots of small changes, and then I copy all the separate, fixed parts together into one image file, so I can make the last, final fixes to the textures or parts themselves and add part numbers and sometimes some other directions in Photoshop.

      Those image files get made into PDF files, and they’re really the only files that have all the fixed and correct parts and instructions for my paper models. You can open them with a PDF reader (like Adobe Reader, but most computers already have one installed.

      Normally, when you click a PDF link, the file will open in your browser window, and you can save or print the file from there, but if that doesn’t work, you can also right-click the links and choose “Save as…” to save the file to your computer first, and open and print it from there (although it’s not really necessary to print the instructions: you can save a lot of paper and ink if you just open them on your computer if you need them! ;o)

      I hope this helps, have fun building!

      1. Thanks for the reply. My final goal was not only to make a full scale replica of Majora’s Mask in papercraft, but in a real sculpture as well. For the papercraft, I’d probably just use the supplied PDFs you made and scaled them (I think I did that once, but I lost the files – anyway someone else did it on the web too). Basically I was interesting in the .pdo because I thought it would be a fun idea to have the 3D model displayed on the computer, and being able to manipulate, in order to have a better view for when I’ll be sculpting it. I think I’ll just make the actually papercraft and use it as a model, which was my first idea.

        Also, I was wondering, did you build the papercraft model from scratch? Or did you extract the 3D data from the original game?

        1. I know that somebody once scaled my small papercraft Majora’s Mask bigger using a vectorization tool, but I’m not quite sure if it’s really life-sized: link

          So you might need to make it even bigger, but even though the parts won’t fit on one regular sheet of paper anymore, don’t worry about that, because you can just glue the parts that got cut up back together of course! ;o)

          It’s not really a very difficult shape though: kinda like a big heart with the two halves bulging up and some spikes. And since the game is still so popular there are lots of pictures and screenshots and other sculptures to be found online! ;o)

          I did use the actual game model as a starting point, and although most game models don’t really make very good paper models, this one isn’t a very complex model of course, so I only had to change it a little bit. ;o)

    1. No, this only a small, one page version.

      Somebody did enlarge it though, I think through a vectorization program. The result is here: link

      I think it is still a little small to be life-sized, but it *is* a lot bigger already. Maybe if you can print it on a bigger printer, it will become lifesized?

    1. With a bit of work, that would be possible yes.

      The template for the paper model is really just an image file, even though I made it into a PDF file. With a program like Photoshop or Gimp (kinda like a free, lite version of Photoshop) you can open the PDF file as an image, and then do all the things you can do with regular images too. ;o)

      Here’s a quick tutorial on how to change colours in Gimp: link (although the Color to Alpha option is now in the Color menu, I think, not under Filters)

      In Photoshop, you can use the Replace Color option under Image > Adjustments.

      But the purple and the other colours aren’t really one, solid colour of course, but a range of purples and other colours, so you’d have to play with it a bit to get a good effect.
