Origami Princess Celestia by Cyberglass Origami Princess Celestia by Cyberglass
I specifically chose a young Princess Celestia to make a model of, since after my Rainbow Dash model I promised myself I wouldn't try adding more than two colors to a mane again. The pink coat was not intentional, but the color bled through the tissue paper I was using.

The base for this model could also be used for Fleur de Lis, since she has the same body structure, and the wings here are not actually separate flaps.

About 2 hours for the shaping, then I let the wet-folded parts dry overnight. It took a few weeks to design the model, though.

Colorwise, perhaps.

Of course, this one looks a lot more like Pinkie Pie!

Did you use glue?

Sort of. I used methylcellulose to glue the two sheets of tissue paper together. This stiffens the paper, and if you moisten the model afterward and let it dry, it will hold its new shape. For example, this is how I got the front legs to not splay outwards.

Wow...may I use that technique?

Of course! A lot of origami artists do. There is a whole school of "wetfolding" that uses the same principle by starting with thicker paper that is already stiff and wetting it so that it becomes easier to fold. It's probably the most permanent form of origami, since thicker papers become hard as a rock when they dry in a curved shape. Most thinner papers need methylcellulose or some other sizing agent to become stiff enough, though.
