Update: I am currently in professional school so my post frequency will probably slow down!


I am an origami hobbyist currently interested in origami design. Whenever I have some free time, I try to improve these skills through the practice of various origami techniques and designing origami models. My designs are often based on whatever strikes my interests, such as video games, television shows, and objects in real life that are not commonly done. This gallery is my way of having my creations and some of my notes online, as well as a way to share with others what I have made. I occasionally accompany my designs with at a crease pattern, and in rare cases a guide or instructions.

Occasionally I'll post designs by other artists that I've folded as interest pieces, which will be indicated in the description and in brackets in the title.

Don't take anything I do seriously. =D


WIPs, alternate views, and extra-silly stuff you don't see here go in my Tumblr:

Photos, angles, or refolds can also be found on my Flickr:
I just found out my monster hunter origami has been featured on Capcom's blog. If you've come to this page from there, hello visitors! If not, hello anyways!

Gramophone by Cahoonas
Gramophone
Folded from a 13.5" uncut square of elephant hide


An entry for the origami forum’s monthly challenge of curved shapes and surfaces. I’ve always thought the horn on old fashioned record players looked nice so I tried my hand at recreating the shape. Structurally, it's pretty much just a box with a group of pleats sticking up off the side. Twisting the pleats gave us the bell shape, and an elias stretch with the rest of the pleats gave us a needle and arm. I also managed to fashion a record from a couple extra layers on the box. The horn and curved box sides were wet-folded into place. Since I knew I would be wetfolding curved surfaces, elephant hide was the ideal choice.

Hey, if it's not a hassle, could you release some pictures of the collapsed bases for the models that you have CP's for? I'm new to crease patterns, and I would love to be able to make some of your paper sculptures
