Printable Zombie Half Mask

It is nearing Halloween and every good papercraft blog is posting masks for the season. Here is one from me: a zombie half mask! I thought covering only one eye was an interesting idea for a mask. Although in order to make this look right I think the nose area of the mask needs to be cut out to allow your own nose to stick through. ^^ The 2D printable image for this mask was created by Buz Carter and may be downloaded from his Flickr page here.

DBZ Papercraft: Kaio-ken Goku

In the Dragon Ball Z universe, Goku is the only fighter to successfully make use of the Kaio-ken technique. In the Dragon Ball Z anime Goku describes the attack as:
"It's like a massive upsurge of energy. Everything is heightened: power, speed, even hearing and vision improve dramatically. You sort of become a super-self. But it can only be sustained for a short time, so you have to get the job done quickly."
This paper model of Goku in Kaio-ken mode was created by Paperjuke. The Pepakura PDO for the model may be downloaded here. A base for the model is included in the download. Build photo by Sinsis

Transforming G1 Optimus Prime Papercraft

This papercraft Optimus Prime is ultra pose-able when in robot form and may be transformed into Optimus' semi-trailer truck form. The transformation is made possible by using string or rubber bands at the model's joints. This papercraft was created by Paper Robots, which apparently no longer exists, but a copy of the printable template is still available here. Sorry, there are no instructions on how to transform from robot to vehicle mode. I think you can figure it out, though. ;)

Papercraft Iris Glasses

I really like these functional papercraft iris glasses. I think they would make a good prop as part of a steampunk Halloween costume. Instructions and templates for the glasses may be found at the Instructables website. Iris mechanisms like this have been used in cameras for over a century.
