A thing of beauty: Plus Kareha's Aegis papercraft
9:00 PM on 03.25.2011 // Joseph Leray
If you still haven't played one of three available versions of Persona 3, you may not see what all the fuss over this Aegis figure is about, but the beauty of a socially maladroit android who shoots bullets out of her fingers is self-evident.
There are approximately a million neat pieces of papercraft on the internet, but Plus Kareha's Aegis is the Sistine Chapel of making cool things out of dead trees. Aegis -- specifically based on the Persona 3: FES version -- is fully poseable and articulated and comes complete with her own little stand. The only things not made out of paper are her red ribbon, her SEES armband, and the chain holding her name plaque.
What nimble, elven fingers this artist must have! I dig the attention to detail and the fact that Aegis' torso bends and flexes, not to mention her bulletfingers.
You can check out some more pictures -- but, sadly, no instructions as far as I can tell -- on Plus Kareha's website. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go eat my scabs and shiver uncontrollably until this sudden desire to play Persona 3 again passes.
