LINK



??? / LINK - Zelda Papercraft
Name: Link
Type: Hero of Hyrule
Species: Hero
Height: Varied
Weight: Average
Interesting Facts: Link's physical characteristics fluctuate from game to game, though he usually has light-colored hair (ranging from brown to blonde to orange), blue eyes, and a medium build. Other characters sometimes think of him as handsome. It is unlikely that Link's age exceeds nineteen years at any point in the series thus far. In many installments of the series, Link is the bearer of the Triforce of Courage. Several games mention a Triforce mark on Link's left hand, which identifies him either as a chosen hero or the holder of the Triforce of Courage. Teenage incarnations of Link have rather well built physiques while younger versions of him are at least moderate in size. It is shown that Link is, at the very least, of the same height as normal Hylians around his age (with the exception of Twilight Princess Link who appears to be shorter than most Hylians near his age).

SANDSHREW ALOLAN (Merry Christmas!)



027 / SANDSHREW Alolan- Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Sandshrew Alolan Form
Type: Ice/Steel
Species: Mouse Pokémon
Height: 0.7 m (2′04″)
Weight: 40.0 kg (88.2 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: In the Alola region, Sandshrew migrated to snowy mountains due to the volcanic activity near the desert areas. Its body is a light, icy blue and with a cream-colored belly and muzzle. Its head now resembles an igloo. Thicker plates form a dome around its head and its ears resemble an igloo's entrances. In adapting to this cold climate, its body became larger and heavier with a shell of ice covering its hide. The steel-like covering grants it extra defense, but it is unable to curl into a ball like its desert counterpart. Alolan Sandshrew's claws allow it to move without slipping on icy surfaces, but it slides on its stomach when it needs to move quickly.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 16.0 cm / 6.3 in
Width: 18.7 cm / 7.4 in
Depth: 24.3 cm / 9.6 in
Pages: 6
Pieces: 56
Level: Easy
Designer: Brandon
Photo: LuIS
NOTES: Start at the face, following the numbers. Make sure to glue the inside of the ears before gluing them to the head. Once the head is built, start at the belly, building the body around it. You can either glue the nails now or after the model is closed. Glue the legs after piece 38 is placed, it is important to get a placement as close to the .pdo as possible so it stands without weight. Continue building it by numbers and close at the tip of the tail. Before closing make sure that it stands without weight inside, I didn't need any weight, but if your does add some by the tail.

Its snout is more pronounced and pointed than that of non-Alolan Vulpix. The locks of hair on its head and its six tails are curlier with a wispy appearance. Alolan Vulpix is believed to have arrived in the region at the same time as humans, but moved to the snow-capped mountain to avoid other Pokémon. It can be found in small pack with two to five individuals. Alolan Vulpix can expel breath as cold as -58°F (-50°C), which is capable of freezing anything. While it is not suited to warmer environments, its tail can produce ice to lower the surrounding temperature if needed. According to the Pokédex, an older name for Alolan Vulpix is Keokeo.

NOTES: Start at the top of the tail. Lightly fold the sharper lines to give it a better shape, the valley folds for example. Build the six pieces of the top, starting at the middle two. The back part ofthe tail is the hardest, make sure to take your time there. Build the back around the tail, gluing the legs as soon as they are ready. When you reach 23, put the built part aside and start at the head, from the nose up. Build the ears before gluing the details to it. Glue the curls at the top of the head while you can still apply presure from the inside. Glue piece 38 to the head and only now glue it to the rest of the body.
