A Few Questionable Characters

Yes indeed these two are a wee bit suspect.

First we have Travis Price's Phidias Gold Custom complete with tattoos galore, big gold belt buckle and quite obviously some neglected dental care.

Next up is the Zombie Waiter from the "Fold Your Own Zombie" Calendar where you get a different zombie paper toy to make each month. The designs are really cool and detailed and pretty easy to put together. For 2012 they have a Robot themed calendar. As you can see this Waiter is quite stylish though not so hygienic. And just in case you are wondering...yes, those are HIS brains. He even has a hold in his head to prove it.

Halloween is almost here. Hope you are all getting the finishing touches on your costumes.

Wild Flower Fall

Here is a Gnome hanging out in some wild flowers he found near the roadside. Yes, it may be Fall and yes, there is a chill in the air but the Sun isn't done shining yet and thankfully, there are still some flowers left to bloom.

Keep watch for Gnomes in your neighborhood and don't forget to take a moment to enjoy all the colors that are still springing up around you too.

Introducing...Simple Vinny!

Alright so I've finally gotten my stuff together and finished a postable template for Simple Vinny. I kept getting asked by folks if I had a simpler Paper Vinny that they could build. One that kids could do in a short time. So I came up with this design that should be sturdy no matter what paper you use.

Some of you might have seen him or even built one of your own at the IconoCraft or Pecha Kucha shows. I was recently interviewed for an online magazine as well and they were wanting a link to the Simple Vinny Template so HERE YOU GO!

I'll be posting a Blank Version soon for any and everyone who wishes to customize a Simple Vinny. In the meantime if you build one of the Simple Skull Edition toys please email me a photo of him in his new environment or on an adventure. I always love to see where he's gotten to next.

Happy Building,

Paper Vinny

Count Down To Halloween

Hey one and all. It's been a wee little while since my last post. I have some news and templates to post soon but in the mean time check out these new Halloween Paper Toys by the great artist MACULA. They are pretty easy to build and they look awesome. There is a Witch, a Zombie and a Wolfman on top of all the many other creatures and characters he has created over the years. Check them out!
