Electra by llifi-kei Electra by llifi-kei
...Kei takes a break from drawing to try her hand at some origami. xD

Diagrams from The Ultimate Papercraft and Origami Book, written/compiled/whatever by Paul Jackson and Angela A'Court. I have had this book ever since I was little, and tried to fold this on numerous occassions without success. (But that was probably because I was too young to have the attention span to concentrate properly on each diagram, and kept trying to skip all the 'unnecessary' parts and such. xD; )

Made out of 30 interlocking models, consisting of alternating triangles and ' pentagons'... but they are more like stars, in my opinion. =D

The book said it should only take an hour to fold, but bumbling Kei is not an origami expert, so it took her the greater part of last night to make, and did not end up going to bed till 12:30am. xD;

It is meant to be a rather last-minute Christmas present for my mum. ^^;

P.S. Credit should also be given to :iconhisuikousei: who unknowingly lent me her black jacket for the background of this photo. =D

My ex-boyfriend gave me one of them several years ago, its pretty cool to see one again. Nice colours to do it in, too.

Yeah. They're pretty solid, too - it lasted for years before a younger cousin finally squashed it. Without his childish intervention it'd probably still be on my shelf back at my folks' place.

Hmm, I think that instead of sending origami by mail I will send you just some origami diagrams by email, so you can fold all the stuff yourself =P
