Nerd DIY: Increase Your Nerd Cred With This Sweet Papercraft Dragon Age Qunari Emblem
Are any of you out there like me and have a place that is your very own getaway from all of the day-to-day problems and stresses of life? Whether it is a reading Nook with your favorite books lining the walls, a work space with your inspiration surrounding you, a shrine to your favorite cartoon about ponies (freaking bronies… gross), or just a straight-up gamer’s paradise with everything that you collect to show off to your friends; I think we all have one, even if it’s not inside your home, I’ll bet you can think of a place that makes you happier even in the darkest of times.
I call my getaway “The Cave.” Hardly a strain on the imagination, surely, but it works. I have all of my posters, books, nerdy possessions and electronics set up just where I want it, making The Cave a place that radiates with everything I love. But I stumbled across something awesome that I think I am going to try, and you should too!
As I was doing the daily blog slog, something on the Bioware blog stood out. Owen Borstad, a veteran programmer at the studio, created this awesome papercraft that makes the symbol of the Qunari people, a hardened badass race from the Dragon Age series.
After seeing that it was made out of paper--of all things--I quickly wanted to know if I could do that too, and sure enough, the instructions were right there in the post! If I get some extra time over the weekend, I am going to attempt it.
If you have already done this or plan to do it, post it in the comments so we can all see how awesome you are!
