Picture of Project: Paper-Clone
promo_hoch.jpg
Welcome to the chamber of paper and glue, Frankenstein Junior. Ever considered to create life not only in a virtual world but also physically, so that you can have your Alter Ego right beside you?
Create a clone and experience the joy of a buddy that is never mean and always loyal and patient, and, most important of all, resembles you if you want him to. That is what makes him unique and proves your skill undeniably.
Put him behind a window and he will bring the joy forward to anyone on the street. It is really interesting to see the point where people realize that this is not a person watching them. Put him in your bed and he will bring the joy forward to the next one who sees him (including you, if you have a weak memory).
Therefore he is highly qualified for the receiving of a Halloween party or the first contact of the Trick-or-Treat-Gatherers.

The figure was exhibited on the Paper and Pulp - Gathering a Community Exhibition in the Salt Space in New York until 10/18/2010 and on the Maker Faire.

There is a FAQ on the last page.

Start on the next page. It will take 7 days of work, so if you have a week to spare, start building him now or he will lack of shoes.

If you give him metal soles in his shoes, and extend light and strong support rods upwards, it may increase stability and reduce its likelihood of falling over in the breeze.

P.S. Germans Rock!!

Can you make a model I can print out and assemble of Miranda Kerr? Megan Fox?
i think the type of replica you're looking for is already on the market… just not for those two people.
I said a-bang, bang, bangity bang....
Ouch.. papercuts. x(
LOL
Would you have to laminate it!!!!????
i'd love to bring my miranda kerr out to dinner and just sit her at a table and see what people think :P

It appeared again after I closed it and opened it twice!

I know LMAOROTF, but please explain KMFUID. Is it "kicking my feet up in delight? delirium?"
Laughing My Arse Off Rolling On The Floor Kicking My Feet Until I Die. The trademark is just for fun, too.

You could do this with Ironman also rigth
kamibox.de (author)  Jon3163 years ago
You could do that with anyone, if you have the texturing material (Wouldn't be a problem with Iron Man). I would love to build anyone popular, but I fear copyright problems, especially when I want to sell it. I already had a lot of copyright trouble because of my Youtube-account, 2.000.000 people saw my videos which had a soundtrack that belonged to Viacom and 20th Century Fox...

just amazing

I need your advise.
At the moment, the figure is stuck in New York because of the paper exhibition, but sending it back would cost around 500$. So I have the option to sell it there, but as you can imagine, I don't dare giving a price offer, so I need a few opinions.

Thanks!

Thanks, but the question is, how much money can I ask for it..
Instead of a price offer, let the customer choose, then think of how much it is worth to you. Or if its an exhibition, ask the owners of the place, to auction it off to interested viewers.

This will probably take me a year to build as I'm not very good at this stuff. Thanks for sharing the tips. Will definite try one day
