But I wanted a new challenge. Enter Harry Potter origami. Well. Sorta. It's sorta Harry Potter in that some of the tutorials I used were for Harry Potter specific stuff and others, I just kinda winged it with something approximate.
It's a dragon. Can't you tell? Yeah, me neither. I used this tutorial but was a bit disappointed with how it turned out. Looks more like a broken bird.
I think this Phoenix is better. It's no Fawkes, but a little closer to the traditional phoenix origami in this tutorial.
My owl looks like a scowly robin. It looks like the one in the tutorial - but that's a little scowly robin too.
It's the Golden Snitch! And it actually kinda looks like a golden snitch! It's pretty much a traditional water bomb/balloon origami - but with wings.
So my Dementor won't stand on it's own two feet (errr... whispy gas trail??) but it still looks like a Dementor! The tutorial was a bit difficult to follow especially with the hood section but fudging works too.
And my favourite - the Howler. If I'd had red paper, this would have rocked even harder. The mouth moves and everything. The tutorial was a fairly easy one for traditional kissy lips. Maybe if Lovely Husband was bored we could hook up a little recording like those birthday cards that sing when you open them. Okay, he'd have to be a lot bored.
This little project originally started out as Star Wars Origami, trying to fold up the cutest little paper yoda that I'd had pinned on Pinterest for a little while. I got this far and then my brain exploded. Mainly because the instructions were just diagrams and when there were actual instructions, they were in Spanish - or Portuguese - one or the other but definitely a language I don't speak.
Brain exploded roughly here.
I'm going to get all Doctor Claw for a minute: I'll get you Yoda... next time.
