Any of you familiar with this thing called Cubeecraft
? For those of you who aren't (and you should; ZOMG you should
!), a Cubee is a paper toy that you can assemble yourself using nothing but a home printer, a pair of scissors, and an internet connection. Husband discovered them while browsing for Christmas gifts, and I've been flailing about them ever since, because... Oh! *dies of the cuteness*.
Anyway, there's a bunch of Cubee templates on the web based on popular fandom characters, nearly all free to download. Star Trek, Star Wars, Dr Who - you name it! Fancy a Dalek Cubee? Here it is!
Or is Mr. Spock
more your thing? Indiana Jones, you say? No problem
. And if you're a Star Wars fan, this little Yoda
here will make your heart melt into a puddle!
So - cubees of every type and fandom, no? Well, almost
... Except, no Babylon 5 Cubees! *sniffles* All, right, I did find this - admittedly sweet - version of Kosh
... but that was it. No Minbari Cubees with teensy-tiny headbones, no mini-Narns or Centauri, not even a Cubeefied John Sheridan! So, what's a (fan)girl gotta do then? Simple: make her own! *g*
Conclusion of tale: last Friday, armed with just Photoshop and a rickety computer mouse - no fancy digital drawing tablets in this house, alas - I made a Londo Cubee! Took me ages to get just the template right, never mind folding it afterwards, but it was very
addictive and not nearly as nerve-wrecking as I'd hoped. And I needed a break from my Yuletide story anyway! :)
Also, the cubee is made of cute. If I may say so myself. *squeals*( Wanna see it? Londo Cubee craves attention! )
If there's anyone who'd like the template, please, feel free to grab via the picture link! (And if you could drop me a line if you do, that would be lovely.)
