Piranha Plant - 3D Origami by o0DreamMyst0o Piranha Plant - 3D Origami by o0DreamMyst0o
Note: I apologize for the picture quality. I was using my phone since my camera is still missing. It looks way better in person. I may post an improved picture of it later.

It's a piranha plant from the Mario series. I was using the daruma leftovers for a red mushroom when I noticed that the pieces were much larger and puffier than that for the 1-up. Staring at it some more made me think of a piranha plant so I set it aside and made what you see above at a later point. It looks adorably hideous.

I added random Mario related items around the bottom. They were made by thinking of the modules as pixels. There are awesome projects out there that utilize this technique on a grand scale so I'm happy I was able to incorporate it in a small way. The ones I made include a fire flower, ice flower, koopa troopa, goomba, Yoshi egg, and bushes with apples on them. It's all out of proportion and a bit cluttered, but I think it adds a needed touch of color. I would have made other things, but a CD only has so much surface space and I didn't wanna obscure the pipe further.

It's about 1100+ pieces or so. I don't know the exact count, though.

I have to say, I am amazed that the head is staying together so well. The pipe on the other hand.... Must buy a different brand of green paper when I get the chance. Slick paper isn't fun, especially when you have to redo rows multiple times.

Materials:
- Colored Paper (Most are modules except the faces for the little characters.)
- Glue (I would use magic, but I am human after all. It was used for the adornments and putting the parts of the piranha plant together.)
- Broken CD (Might as well use it for something.)

Time Estimated: Hmm...5 hours more or less (not including module making time)? I should prolly get rid of this time-estimated thing since I don't usually time myself. Plus it's hard to estimate when I make things while multitasking, so who knows?
