Crease Pattern Challenge 010

Crease Pattern Challenge, Origami

Challenge 10 is Keiichi Kozasa’s Winged Lion. I’m a big fan of Kozasa for a particular reason. He made the best model I’ve ever seen of my favorite Godzilla monster, Angiras (I’m using the Japanese spelling, as there are differing translations). If anyone knows where I can get a crease pattern or diagrams for his Angiras, please let me know.

Back to the lion; I wasn’t partial to the angry face so much. So, I changed that a bit and also ended up making his mane a bit different. I think it looks futuristic, maybe like a robot lion.

Here are some more good Kozasa models, which I think are all from out of print Tanteidan Convention books. First, his Horse is fabulous, as you can see from its hair.

His Pikachu is pretty nice too. I only had yellow and white paper, so I couldn’t really do him justice.

He also has other Kaiju. I probably should have used bigger paper for his Gamera. I had to leave the shell a little larger than the original because of it.

His other Kaiju (that I’ve got) is King Gidora! In his first appearance, the three-headed golden dragon required Godzilla, Radon, and Mothra to team up to beat him. The paper version is a very good likeness.
