Zelda life size papercraft 1 by minidelirium Zelda life size papercraft 1 by minidelirium
I finally got pictures of my life size Zelda! she is 170cm tall (5'6''), the upper body is built in 160/g-paper, the skirt in 200/g-paper. she took 226h to build and I gave her away for free to a woman I didn't know before this build.

if you have any questions, just ask! I'm so proud over her! :woohoo:

the template can be downloaded from the talented template master PaperJuke
here are the links for download!

I'm working on Haywan's Link atm and I've got a Life sized Ganon template that :iconstudioofmm: made for me, but the problem is that to make him I'd have to use 600 sheets of very, very dark printed paper and I just can't afford that kind of ink atm. Some day my dream is to do him though.

Wow this is amazing!! I was wondering if you printed all of that at home or did you go to a print place and do it.... Can't imagine how many ink cartridges that took..

:iconminidelirium:
minidelirium Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2014  Hobbyist
thanks! :)
I printed it at home and I have no idea of how much ink was spent since I buy XL-cartridges and it didn't run dry for the aprox. 200 pages it took. :)
also, she is not a very dark model, so not a lot of ink was needed. not as with Link.

Oh wow! That's awesome. I've wanted to make life size models, but the ink was always an issue with me. I should look into those cartridges :D

Go for a light model if you're going to make something life sized. That way you won't spend too much on ink. ;)

minidelirium, hello! i adore the zelda papercraft that you did!!! I just printed all the pages and I am about to cut them. Is there anyway to know where the pieces go together? Because I'm losing hope as I sit here and look at all these pages!
Reply
:iconminidelirium:
minidelirium Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2014  Hobbyist
I tried to put them in a pile so that the pile followed the pages if you see what I mean? that way, if you need to know where a part should go or what part to use, you just look at the pepakura file and then search through the pile (without disturbing the order) for the part you need, or for a part from the same page that has a more significant shape or so, that way you might find the right piece more easily)

even though I did this, I accidentally got the order wrong for a few parts and had to sit and compare the part in my hand to EVERY part that looked remotely like it in the file... exhausting stuff, but since almost all of the parts looks a bit specific I at least got them all where they should go after sorting through the pile a fair few times. but if you try to keep the order it'll be easier!

(oh and be sure not to drop the pile! I did that twice CURSE YOU!  and it was a pain in the ass to sort it again)

Thanks so much, I did exactly as you told me. Started with foot then went up to the thigh. Then things started to get difficult from here, lol. Then I thought, why would I need the legs if she's wearing a dress, lol.

:iconminidelirium:
minidelirium Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2014  Hobbyist
haha yeah, I did the exact samt thing! :XD:
I made her legs and then they wouldn't support her weight anyway so I put them aside. I started from the tip of her hair inward, until I had the head and neck done, then I made her arms, starting from the fingertips, and glued them to her shoulders before I went on to build her body and dress.

If I could send it for free (a life sized figure from Sweden to wherever you are) she'd still cost about $2.000, and that's just for the work itself, I have no idea what the ink costs. It takes a lot of work and effort to make really well done stuff.

Plus, I'm not that fond of making the same model twice, I much prefer to go from thing to thing and always have a new challenge. So, I'm sorry, but I wouldn't be the one to make it at least.

So awesome! I love doing papercrafts, I think I'm gonna try this x3 Though I'll have to get a step stool, I'm only 5'0"!

haha I'm 5"1' and I hung her on a lamp pole and put that on a small stool, but I'd really go for some kind of mannequinne pole or so.
you don't need to climb though, you won't need to do that if you just hang her on something higher than she is when the time comes when you can't handle her very easily (for me that was after I'd built her down to her waist, that was the time to hang her on something).
oh also, she's pretty easy to make, just a cone with arms, really. :D

Although Link won't be happy to hear you gave her away! xD
Then again, I guess there's always Twilight Princess Midna to keep Link company! x3

I'm going to give away the life sized Midna I built too. :XD:
but I might get Link done before I get Midna out of my cellar and away to the recipient. then it'll be photos I suppose, though StudioofMM already took some photos like that of her own builds, I want my own! :D

also, just to be clear, I'm just the builder of this papercraft, the pose is PaperJukes work. I think he ripped it from SSBB trophy section or something like that. she was great fun to build! :D

one time, i did a papercraft of a Chao from this Sonic Adventure 2 site. i wasn't very good at it back then, and it looked a bit lopsided. xP

haha, it's really just about having patiance and being meticoluos. it's like a big 3D-puzzle. you print the pieces on thick paper, cut them out, fold every fold and glue them together. it's a VERY time consuming hobby but I love it. :D

man printar ut bitarna med färg, skär/klipper ut dem, viker dem och limmar ihop dem som ett enormt 3D-pussel. det tar enormt mycket mer tid än det ser ut som. varje polygon är utskuren, vikt för hand och limmad liksom. det är en cool form av modellbygge. :D

mhm. jag älskar det. älskar att få tunnelseende och bara falla ner i papercraften och upptäcka flera timmar senare att jag glömt att äta, glömt att gå på toa etc etc. det är ljuvligt.
