Midna Papercraft Download by XenonRay Midna Papercraft Download by XenonRay
This model has been made as part of a collaboration between :iconxenonray: and :iconstudioofmm: to finally bring you all a detailed papercraft of Midna in her imp form.

The pictures here are from Studio of M.M's excellent 122cm build! Have a look at some of her full photos: [link] [link]

Derived from her trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, I edited Twilight Princess' fiesty imp into a form suitable for building way back in autumn 2011. But it was in an awkward floating pose and I ended up working on my Garrus model instead and forgot about her for a long time. A year later I learned to re-pose it in Blender to a more basic but workable standing position, edited it a lot more and made an unfold.

But technically there's a catch compared to my usual models. I only built most of the body file before stopping (not however due to bad design I stress). Sadly the colours of the skin came out all dark from my printer, including what should've been the lighter toned bits. So I lost interest but it would've been a shame to shelve the model for a second time. Fortunately *studioofmm volunteered kindly to help me out...although she had it in mind to edit and enlarge the whole thing to build a life sized version! So now with her great finished photos and the knowledge that the model is buildable all the way through, I'm releasing both of our versions of the template.

So in short there's a normal 37cm version and a life sized 122cm version available (the Fused Shadow makes up about 33% of the height). But no instructions, PDO files only because you'll certainly need them: best not to be messing around trying to figure things out from a PDF. But we've included plenty of notes to try and help you, however it goes without saying that you might want to have some experience in papercrafting already.

If you have any questions, please ask me about the general model/smaller template, or Studio of M.M about the life sized one. We'll try to help as best as we can! :)

Please tell me if you spot any errors that I might have missed due to not building it myself. (not something I'm going to make a habit of)

-------Read Before Downloading-------

It's a 8.75MB RAR file which contains PDOs to print from and use as a references. 17 pages for the small one (not including stand), and a whopping 120 pages to bust your printer ink on for the life sized one. :p

You can open the RAR archive with software such as WinRAR, Alzip, 7Zip. Just search around!

You can open the PDO files with Pepakura Designer downloadable free here: [link]

You will need to use these to print from and figure out where the parts go, especially for the big template. It won't work on Macs unfortunately unless you emulate Windows etc.

Difficulty: High

Happy building!


Take a look at my Twili Midna model, made as a collaboration too between me and Squeezycheesecake.

And many thanks for minidelirium for the first photos I've seen of the small version!

Il give the small one a shot then, life sized can wait! :D
120 pages? Thats a lot.

Yeah lifesized stuff gets rather crazy in terms of page count. The smaller version isn't as much though!

UGH. WANT <3 I will have to try this out for myself some time! <3

Good luck, me and Studio of M.M are always here if you have any questions about the template!

Do you know of anywhere I can get PDF files of these templates? Despite my best efforts I can't make Pepakura work on my computer. I found a video on YouTube on how to convert PDO to PDF, so I know it's possible, but I don't know if anyone has done it for this model.

Unless someone's made their own, we didn't release PDFs for this one. The life sized one would be extremely difficult without a PDO to reference all the huge split parts. The smaller version lacks instructions and while not impossible, would be a bit tricky to figure out too.

Hmmm... I'll ask around, maybe I'll find something. Thank you!
My grandpa would kill me if i printed the life sized one with the ink prices these days

Yes life size stuff isn't for everyone. I personally don't do them, but others, like Studio of M.M who made these photos love them!
