Video Game Paper Crafts

If you're a big fat nerd like me, chances are you like to put video game figures (Not toys mom, FIGURES!) and ornaments all over your room and work space. If you're like me you have also noticed how darn expensive this stuff is.

Well one day I read about paper crafting. To me it sounded genius. Make your own figures! Out of paper! That stuff is so cheap, it practically grows on trees!! You could even say it IS trees!....wait no, that's stupid. Anyway just look at some of the kick ass stuff people have made.

I was thinking to myself, "Hey, this can't be so hard. I am a smart guy, I can figure it out." So I tried my first one. It was the prince from katamari damacy. It was fun but I quickly learned 2 things. First, I am not that smart. And second, it's a lot harder than it looks. So many tiny things to try and glue. The Japanese must have invented this for sure. My fat gaijin hands just crumpled it all up.

Anyway if you want to try your own there are a few good sites for it here and here
