Papercraft Reindeer Christmas Decoration

The tree is looking super with the various paper ornaments I have found, so now I just need to build a few decorations to litter around the house. What could be more Christmasy (is that a real word?) than reindeer? Absolutely nothing in my opinion, so I've dug up an automated, animated reindeer that is warming up for the Christmas night run with Santa. He's so cute I feel sick.

Xmas Paper Models

My tree is starting to look pretty sweet with the paper model ornaments that I have been digging up from all over the web, one of the highlights that I had to share was Rob's Polyhedron Models. While not specifically created for christmas, they are truly amazing and work perfectly for that xmas-tree-on-the-cheap :)

Grab them here.

You will need some software called Great Stella which is available from here.

More Excellent Japanese Paper Craft

I found these a long time ago and lost the bookmark, so it was with great delight that I stumbled across them again, nice big paper models of various characters (as usual I have no idea what they are from) they all seem to be holding utensils? Awesome. I'm still shopping for Xmas presents, more and more I am leaning towards just giving friends and family papercrafts. I would love to receive something like this for Christmas!

Christmas Paper Crafts

Wow almost xmas time already! I've been out looking at Christmas decorations and was utterly disturbed by the cost of the sparkly tree ornaments, as I left the store, not really feeling the christmas spirit, it came to me in a flash: paper christmas ornaments! My searching has come up with this gem, a 3D Paper Snowflake!

You can grab it here and spread the xmas love!

Steambot Chronicles Papercraft

I've been catching up on a few games from this year that have been on my must play list and the one that has really taken me by surprise is quirky little rpg called Steambot Chronicles (or Bumpy Trot in Japan, they should have kept that name!). Billed as a 'sandbox' game, it's a mech game, it's a dating sim, you get to join a band and play musical instruments, there's a very good 9-ball mini game, there is a lot of things to do and they are all done really nicely. At this point (i'm about 8 hours in) I'm picking it as my game of the year!

You can imagine my delight when I was looking over the official site and low and behold they have papercraft! Click on the downloads page and make your very own trotmobile!

Paper Mask

Brett Simons who was suffering from a midlife crisis came up with a simple and in my opinion wonderful solution to justifying his existence. Rather than a new Harley or a tattoo, the usual signs that a man is suffering from a midlife crisis, Brett has gone and crafted himself a paper mask based on his face

You can download it from his site, and compare the paper to the man yourself.
