The Legend of Link by studioofmm The Legend of Link by studioofmm
Link is a life size papercraft model standing around 5'5. He is made completely from 250 gsm paper (about 4x stronger then normal paper). He has foam core supports in the top and bottom of his pants, top and bottom of his boots and a ring in his waist. There is also some in the back of his shield, and in the handle of the master sword.
He can be easily unassembled for transportation. His head, torso, legs, sword, shield, and sheath are all separate. The sword can also be put into the sheath or into his hand. He can stand all on his own without any support.

Link is made from 250+ pages, the initial template is 198, but there are layers of strips of paper inside for support, and 831 pieces. I worked on him constantly for a month, working approximately 12 hours each day but sometimes that number could go up to 20.

If you are interested in making this model and have any questions, feel free to ask me, I would be more than happy to help.

I actually did enlarge the template of the SSBB Ganondorf to life size for a friend. She never ended up building it though because of the amount of paper and ink that he would use up. The cape was also going to be unbuildable out of paper. If you're interested in it I'm sure i can find the files and send them to you, just realize that you'd have to do something else for the cape.

Ok il try that then, but i have a papercraft request, can you make a Morpheel papercraft?

I sent you a note with a link to download the template. Unfortunately I'm not really working on papercraft models right now. There is a forum on Nintendo papercraft that has a request section that you could try and see if anyone would be interested in designing a Morpheel. Here's a link to it if you're interested: nintendo-papercraft.com/forums…
