I used to come on /r9k/ when it was just the originality board. I used to post a lot of stuff, but now it seems you guys aren't so diverse anymore.
So here I will help diversify things! I will teach you how to make a kabuto helmet out of a piece of paper! I apologize in advance for bad quality images. But they should do the trick.
Step 0: find a square piece of paper, or make one (http://www.origamiwithrachelkatz.com/folding/square.php).
>tl;dr grab a square piece of paper and shut the fuck up while we fold it.
Step 1: Fold the top corner down to the bottom corner.
Protip: fold as precisely as possible.
You should get something that looks like this.
Step 2: Fold the right point to the bottom point, like so.
Step 3: Do it to the other fucking side. It should look like this after.
No, fuck you. We are folding fucking paper and if you don't want to, you can hide the fucking thread.
BACK TO FOLDING:
Step 4: Fold one of the points you just folded (to the bottom) to the top.
FORGOT IMAGE. ALSO FUCK YOU ROBOT. WE ARE FOLDING PAPER.
The resulting fold. Now:
Do it on the otherside as symmetrically as possible.
The result should look like this, but if it looks different, don't fret.
Fold the top layer only up, but not all the way. See next picture for more details.
You better fucking be ready. Just for you I will add a bonus at the ending.
This is the result of step 7, by the way.
Fold the rim of your fucking help up, keeping the last fold in place. See next picture for deets.
that should be helm, I am just mentally ill.
YOU GET THIS THOUGH.
Flip that fucker over. It looks like this.
Fold that bottom point to the top (you may also tuck it inside if you'd like, but that will make the bonus fold harder).
You are now fucking done.
Sorry that took so fucking long.
Fucking open the bottom and fucking wear it.
>but anon it is 2 tiny
WELL FUCKING FOLD IT OUT OF NEWSPAPER, FUCKER.
Now I will do the bonus.
FUCKING BONUS ROUND:
[[disclaimer: this will ruin your helmet and will make origami purists cry, perform at your own risk]]
BONUS STEP 1:
Open that fucker up more and bend it the other way like so.
Note it will look like this. If it fucking doesn't, your done. You are fucking done.
BONUS STEP 2:
WATCH OUT PURISTS:
We are going to cut in these places. You actually don't have to cut on the top, but I think it is easier this way.
CUTTING THE BOTTOM. FUCK YOU AGAIN, HELM.
(FLIP IT OVER AND MAKE AN ANALOGOUS CUT TOO).
BONUS STEP 3:
FUCKING FOLD THOSE FLAPS BACK LIKE THIS.
REMEMBER: there are two flaps
OH MY FUCKING GOODNESS.
A FUCKING FISH.
BONUS STEP 3.5:
DRAW A FUCKING FACE SO YOUR FISH CAN LIVE.
I forgot to mention one thing:
As someone pointed out, there is a paper and origami board called /po/ if you have never been there. They have a beginner thread where you can share shit and that. So fucking go there for more if you are waiting around for it.
Well, that was -- different. Good effort, good job, OP.
Fucking sick, bro. Didn't see the fish part coming. Totally blindsided me
