Origami Darth Vader Is Too Cute to Rule the Galaxy

Tadashi Mori is a prolific origami artist who’s previously folded replica aircraft and terrifying dragons, but now he’s turned his talents to the Dark Side.


His take on Darth Vader includes the Sith lord’s signature cape and helmet, but be warned, it’s not for origami Padawans. For starters, the expert takes at least 45 minutes to finish the sinister creation. Using a large sheet of paper and following along with his detailed instructions, however, might be enough to get you by if you’re already comfortable with the standard folds. Lightsaber not included.
