Realistic Looking Origami Bat

A couple of week ago, around Halloween time I was looking to portray the holiday feeling with some cute folding. You would think that “Halloween” and “cute” are not two words that one would normally put together, but I truly enjoy the creepy part of this festivity, but I don’t let it be too creepy to have nightmares.

Following this very specific idea I had in mind, I found this incredible looking bat. The design is so carefully made that the final figure looks as if it was a real animal, or at least that is the reaction I got from many of my friends.

I ended up liking this model so much, that I am now planning to frame it, so that I can display it easily and all year long. After all, there are bats for more than just on Halloween day.


About my folding,

This model was made with a 20×20 brown paper, but I think a bigger would have also worked out pretty well. In my opinion the snout has very fine details, thus a 15×15 paper is not the best to work with.
