Origami Pikachu Video Tutorial (Advanced)

This origami pikachu model is pretty advanced, so if you don’t really get what a squash fold is, try a simpler model.

I have made this video as more of a request, it ended up taking a reeally long time to make.. so I hope someone benifits from it 🙂

This isn’t my usual type of video, I will be making more simple models really soon..

If you have trouble I will try my best to assist in the comments. I realise the videography is not great, I did my best with the lights and camera I have..

I think the model is originally made by Kozasa Keiichi, and was featured in some BOS magazine years ago.

Sorry there is no audio, I have a cold so most of it was just me coughing!!

Here is the diagram:

Let me know how you get on, anyone got any requests?

    Could you please clarify the closed sink Gingergami refers to? I followed the diagrams but got stuck at step 77 because I cannot read Japanese. Better still, post a correction video for steps 57 or 77 to end. It is really unfortunate that Tanteidan Convention book 5 is almost impossible to find because this is one of few Pikachu models with spatulate tail. Thanks in advance.

      As far as I can tell, he meant to sink it without opening it out. I’m not sure! Unfortunately I won’t be making another video. You can check out this one by Jo Nakashima, it’s similar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdV6WyPmUwE 🙂

    I have a suggestion: If you ever have to take out the audio again, at least consider adding some music instead next time.

    I know this video is crazy old, but at 37 minutes in, when you say that you don’t understand 78-83 it’s because you did an open sink instead of a closed sink. It would have saved you the following 10 minutes of video

    Advanced origami Pikachu is awesome. Especially amazed by the way the folds create Pikachu’s stripes and ear tips. Thank you for the post and the video.

    One question! You know, that paper you used is just perfect for Pikachu, and it looks to be just right in terms of strong enough but thin enough. Where did you get that paper and what kind is it? I’ve searched around, but all the papers I find are white on one side and look flimsier.

    Thank you!

      Hi Nik 🙂

      I have not been able to find the same paper again, seems they aren’t making it anymore. You can find some double sided origami paper on Amazon, such as this http://www.amazon.com/Toyo-Origami-Double-sided-Colors-Sheets/dp/B001J2YIMY but it is too small for this model.. there might be bigger ones, try searching ‘double sided paper’ or ‘2 sided paper’ on some online shops, you might find it in craft sections of cheap Asain shops.. maybe not! Sorry not much help haha. Chrissy
