Here's a pic of me being nerdy... I made some origami x-wing fighters and then posed them with pipe cleaners.  The back drop is just a black sheet of scrap book paper.  The "Death Star" is a post-it note and the planet on the right is from an L.L. Bean magazine. 



if you're interested in making these x-wings, you can view diagrams at The Happy Magpie, or watch an instructional video on my site

Hmmm... since my brother broke one of the Star Wars glasses I made for him, and I need to make a replacement, I may need to include a few of these- they'd make awesome packing material for the glass. It'd be fun to see how long it took him to figure out that they were something beyond box filler.

Yes... geekiness runs in the family Wink

Yeah, to make these you have to start with the frog base.  Good eye!

thanks lol, i was completely obsessed with origami for a few years. i taught cranes to my whole grade 8 class. Tongue  would it be possible to get instructions for this variation off the frog base? I'd love to make some x-wings for my oh-so-nerdy boyfriend to hang over his bass-playing corner of the room.

Sure! I actually posted links underneath the picture, but I guess they kinda blend in...

I learned how to make this x-wing by reading diagrams posted by Philip Schulz at his website The Happy Magpie.  He's got a bunch of Star Wars origami so definitely check it out.  If you're not excited by the idea of reading origami diagrams, feel free to watch the video I made on how to fold this thing.
