Life Size Midna Papercraft by studioofmm Life Size Midna Papercraft by studioofmm
Midna (imp version) from the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, made completely out of paper.

She’s a life size papercraft model standing at exactly 4 feet (122 cm/ 48”). She’s made from 120+ pages that took me 5-10 hours a day for 2 weeks to assemble.
The warp portal stand is made from black foam board with the design painted on. A tutorial of how to make the stand for the life size model is included in the template download.

Thanks to the amazing :iconxenonray: for letting me turn his smaller version into a life size papercraft to go with my Link!
3D edit and original unfold by :iconxenonray: , life size unfold and test build by myself.

Template: studioofmm.deviantart.com/art/…

That's up to you. The main issue is the ankles collapsing into the feet from the weight of the rest of her body. Some extra support that goes from the ankles into the feet is all that's needed, but if you'll feel better filling the whole foot with support it won't hurt :)

just a quick question for reinforcing the lower body, i get that the legs need as much support as possible according to the notes. but should i fill the feet with as much support as the legs and ankles?

oh, I just realized you might've meant "do you want lined or smooth style" and I'd love to make another wonder of polygons, so if it's possible I'd prefer a foldguided, lined version after the big one too, but it's not really a nescessity since I can fold after the small one. I don't want to give you a lot of extra work if I't the same with both small and big foldwise.

omg thanks!!! I didn't dare to hope. :D
lineless works. I can check the lines in the smaller version when I fold I think. and don't feel any stress over it, you do it when you feel you have the time. :heart:
I'll send you my email in a PM

I checked, and there is no password so I can enlarge it. I don't really have the time right now but it is something I would be glad to do for you. 6 feet sounds good to me! When I do get the chance to work on it, I won't bother to edit the cape and I'll need your email or something so that I can send you the files. Do you want it lined or line-less?

if it would be possible to make him about 6' tall that would be awesome? I have patience, so no stress. you can also refuse. I wouldn't mind. :)

it would be SO cool to have a life sized Ganon made. I don't even know if I'd give him away. I've always had a crush on him and he is so handsome in SSBB!

The computer that I do all my papercrafts on is a little buried at the moment so I can't check to see if it has a password or not, but when I have the chance I will. If it doesn't have one, what size do you want him? It might take me a while and it might not end up being able to scale up well, but I can try!

:iconminidelirium:
minidelirium Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Hobbyist
let's hope it doesn't have a password then. omg it would be SO darn cool to make a life sized Ganon too!!! I mean... then I'd just have the life sized link left to make! (I'm in the cutting stage of the life sized Midna :D )
and I wouldn't mind him without the cape since it'd be hell to build it. or at least it would feel like hell to sit with that large piece of paper and glue on more and more until it's impossible to take it through the front door, so I couldn't give him away, I'd have to live with that cape FOREVER.
in other words: I think I'd skip the cape. :giggle:

I guess that would be up to you whether you would mind him without the cape. I forgot to mention also that it will depend whether the model has a password on it. If it does, I can't make any changes to the template.

true. that would be a real challange. would it be really bad and wrong if the cape wasn't a part of the model do you think?

I haven't had a chance to build him yet, so the only thing I can think of that might be a problem would be his cape.

studioofmm Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
From what I remember from the template, she really couldn't be scaled up well. She doesn't have enough detail for it to look good as a life size either, the only Zelda models that really work as life size models are the trophies from SSBB.

would you be interested in trying to make a life sized Midna in her Twili form? you know, that template Xenonray and SqueezyCheescake made. I'd love to try and build her in life size. I think she's about 6'2" or so. I totally understand if she isn't doable in that size, I just thought I'd check. ^_^
I've asked both of them also.

So you're telling me you didn't find a 4 foot Twilight imp and took a few pictures of her and you made this with paper?!?!?!?? That's less likely than the former, as it would take an incredible amount of work to pull off! But this looks just like the Twilight Princess we all know. Now we need a wolfie!

donīt worry, i prefere getting slapped with straightness than getting a reply thatīs all nice and empty.

anyways it didnīt feel rude to me, but simply down to fact.

a final thought occured to me tho: it seems we often forget, as we get better in what weīre doing, that thereīs many others who have just NO clue how we got there... i conclude for myself to go back to using the description section a bit more effectively once again (tho luckily with painting and drawing i wonīt encounter such problems that often).

cheers!

The fabric is fleece, it works well because the light doesn't reflect off of it. It can be found at any fabric store.

As for if it turns splotchy with a fill tool, it depends how much of the texture of the fabric it retains. Sometimes it will go completely the solid color and sometimes it only does patches. It might work better if the model was not as dark as Midna, so it can recognize more of a difference between the background and the object.

Wow...it's not just folded, it's actually glued together? Dang, that must take forever to do! As for the background, that's pretty sweet...I wish I could do something like that. If you were to put the picture in MS Paint and use the fill tool on the background to try to make the whole thing white, would it, or would it only turn splotches of it white, as if it were pixelated? Just wondering. The whole thing is kinda like a green screen, only you're not digitally adding anything to it. :) Might I ask where you got the fabric and what kind of cloth it is? I'm sorry, it's just fascinating to see someone do something this amazing. :D

There are always the pictures of her with my Link who is 5'5. I'm known for my life size models and brining video games to life. A picture of an actual person beside a fictitious character would not fit in my gallery and would look unprofessional.
