Halloween in the origami cave 
28th-Oct-2015 01:27 am
LOVE ME Skull
My origami and writing cave. The wall in the background has a variety of Japanese band posters, post cards etc from BUCK-TICK and THE MORTAL (side band project of the vocalist/lyricist of BUCK-TICK)... and to create a nice organic feel to it, I've filled in the spaces with color coordinating origami in black, cream, and red. Much of it isn't visible in that shot, but there are chains of red, black, and cream "Lucky Stars" with black glass beads between them, spanning at different angles between some of the posters; a black "Heart Bat" (Riki Saito), "Field Flower" (David Martinez) in both black and traditional Japanese washi, 5-pointed stars (Tomoko Fuse) in both black and red. The desk contains a traditional crane in Japanese washi, a "Tsuru Rose" (Satoshi Kamiya), "3D Rings" and a "Star" (Paolo Bascetta), and a "Loops" kusudama (an alternate of the "Kikutemari" origami kusudama (Tomoko Fuse, Yakuso Suyama)) in black and red with a white tassel and red & black glass beads.

Suggestion: if you haven't already, try experimenting with "chalkboard" wrapping paper for solid black origami. I was very surprised to find that it's my favorite paper to work with, right next to working with quality gilded washi.

There we go- "Flapping Bat" (in nasty practice paper). I experimented with the wings a bit.
