This papercraft was made a couple of weeks ago for my school's awesome Anime Club. It's Charlotte The Dessert Witch, the most adorable character from the very very popular japanese animated show Puella Magi Madoka Magica!
For those of you who don't know about the show, Puella Magi Madoka Magica is a 12 episode animated television series about a world where girls who, after making a contract with a small adorable plush cat-like creature named Kyubey, can get their deepest and inner most desires fulfilled. In exchange, they become Magical Girls and make a resolve to protect their world from being destroyed by otherworldy creatures called Witches. Bottom Line: It's incredibly an incredibly cute, heartwarming, and hilarious animated series that I would highly recommend for any audiences interested in getting into Anime for the first time.
Now, for those of you in the know, please keep all comments centered on the papercraft and SPOILER FREE. Spoilers will not be tolerated.
This papercraft actually was originally planned to be a step by step guide and I had hoped it to be the first introductory instructable to this show. I was searching online and stumbled across a PDO file of her and after scaling her small 3 inch size to an adorable 8 inch size, I was done! Unfortunately, I had a deadline for donating it to my Anime Club before the end of the term and I didn't end up taking as many pictures as I hoped. Oh well, maybe I'll make Kyubey or something. ï¼äººâ â¿â¿ âäººï¼¼
As I have stated countless times, I am highly against giving the papercraft pdo as I think it detracts from the original designer's personal site and traffic. However, this build was only linked to me through 4chan.org and I was unable to locate the original source online. So here you go!
Anyway, like I mentioned Puella Magi Madoka Magica while completely adorable remains an utterly riveting show and I cannot recommend it enough. I think the DVDs are available somewhere, but I just watch the fansubs online :/
