With the current interest in Star Wars again after a decade-long hiatus, and at the prompting of a friend, I decided to re-visit the Yoda model that I folded almost 20 years ago. Yoda, the sprightly Jedi Master, is one of my favourite Star Wars characters. The model I folded is designed by Fumiaki Kawahata. I thought it was well-designed and very expressive. Here is the newly-folded Yoda.
For those who are interested, there is an excellent Youtube video by Jo Nakashima showing how to fold Fumiaki’s model. He also pointed out that Yoda has only 3 fingers (as folded here) instead of the 4 fingers as designed by Fumiaki. For the origami folders, I have also colour-changed Yoda’s stick from the original green to brown.
After folding Yoda, I surfed the net for other Star Wars characters to fold. I found Darth Vader, a Sith Lord of the evil Empire.
This model is designed by Ignacio Smith. I particularly like the sweep of his cloak and the majestic portrayal of Darth Vader.
The model of Yoda stands at 9 cm, and Darth Vader at 20 cm.
May the Force be with You.
