Origami C3P0 Folding ideas (not full instructions…)

Hey SuperFolders!
You guys are really persistent about these C3P0 instructions!
I don’t have full instructions, but here are some general ideas about how to make one…

I’m not sure I can explain c3po. It was just one sneaky move after

It’s got some similarities to R2D2 actually. You just start
with the paper “tall.”

Basically, you make a massive pleat near the middle.And then another
facing it. This creates a head and a body with a sort of neck in

The head is then made as narrow as possible and shaped. (it has a
pleat in it for the mouth.)

The body is folded with a couple of diagonal pleats to create that
rib cage thing c3p0 has.

The arms are just an illusion. Remember how you shorten r2d2’s body?
Same thing for C3P0. By shortening the body, it makes the arms appear

The back is going to be a mess!!! And it’s just barely going to be a puppet.

I realize this wasn’t super helpful, but maybe it’ll get you started….

I made one that LOOKS like Tom’s C3PO, however, it is Kirigami. I cut the paper, but it looks (Almost) EXACTLY LIKE TOM’S!!!!!
