she took 226 hours to build. the cutting took 88h and the folding and building took 138h. I made a big mistake in the beginning and printed her on 120g paper, so I had to do it all over again in 160g and 200g paper. I'm very satisfied with the result and look forward to giving her to a distant friend. she is about 170cm tall.
I've asked her to put all the jewlery on her and take pictures against a better background, so look forward to that too!

the template can be downloaded from the talented template master PaperJuke
here are the links for download!

yay!!! :squee: consider yourself watched! I'm looking forward to seeing your build! I've been waiting for more builders to make her. she's awesome, pretty, and great fun to build imo. her only drawback is her size, she's like a grandfather clock. I hung her on a lamp pole instead of building the legs. way easier and a lot more durable I think. the first builder of her (Lilik) made the legs really strong but they still buckled under her wheight, so I'd go with the hanging instead of trying to balance her on legs you'd have to reinforce with like 10 layers of paper and glue.

She started to buckle on me, so i had my mates help me fill her to the brim with Expanding Spray foam, She's as hard as a rock, and all the mis-shapen pieces have fallen where they need to :) And thanks for the lamp pole tip. i needed that O_O :D

thank you but it's PaperJuke that has made the template, I'm just a papercraft builder so I had nothing to do with the pose. well, more than me making my best to replicate her from the template.

She's taller than me...a papercraft is taller than...
oh, nevermind.

Absolutely amazing! I can't believe you took the time to make this! She's stunning!

thank you! well, I had the urge to see how easy she was since the template looked really easy, and I'm very pleased with the outcome. she was as easy as I had anticipated.

One of these days I'm going to have to dabble in papercraft. If she was easy, then I shouldn't have too much trouble with something small-scale.

just remember that the larger builds tend to be easier since there are a lot less small detailed impossible parts.

True. Hadn't thought about that.
Though, I'm a sucker for small details. ^_^ I'll definitely give it a shot at some point. (When I'm not swamped with school work...)
