Imagine this: YOUR Star Wars origami displayed in Manhattan! Specifically, in the window of Books of Wonder bookstore to celebrate Jabba the Puppett’s launch!
It is a big deal for Jabba to get this opportunity! And to make it super waffles, I am asking you SuperFolders to make it happen, so that we can have a big, colorful, stooky window-ful of Star Wars origami to amaze New York City with!
Here’s a vid of a previous (non-Star Wars) window display there. Think we can we top that, SFs?
Here’s what you do… make a bigger than normal piece of origami. if you usually use a 1/4 sheet like I do, this is the time to use a whole sheet. And make it really colorful so it pops out! (Let’s stick to Star Wars characters for this. Characters from Jabba’s throne room would be extra awesome, but anyone you want is good, too!) Make as many different puppets as you want!
On the back in big letters, write your first name and the state where you live. (You can also write your SuperFolder name as long as it does not have your last name or other identifying information in it.)
Now mail it to this address:
c/o ORIGAMI YODA DISPLAY
115 W 18th St
New York, NY 10011
IMPORTANT: To protect your privacy DO NOT put your full name or address on or inside the envelope.
So be SURE you have the right postage on it, otherwise it will get lost in hyperspace!
Also, you will not be getting the origami back — I’ll be getting them afterwards! And I can’t wait to see what you guys make!
Photos of the window display will DEFINITELY appear on this site and who knows maybe in some other places, too!
One more thing: DON’T WAIT!!!! THE WINDOW DISPLAY WILL BE GOING UP SOON!
IN OTHER NYC DEVELOPMENTS….
The Brooklyn Public Library is trying to collect 1,000 Origami Yodas and/or Darth Papers. I thought we could help them out, so if you want to you can send some EZ Yodas and Vaders to them at:
10 Grand Army Plaza
Brooklyn, NY 11238
Follow the same rules here to protect your privacy… don’t include your full name or address.
There are no guarantees of fame and fortune with either one of these, but I hope you’ll do one or the other or both JUST FOR THE STOOKINESS OF IT!
Help us SFs! You’re our only hope!!!
