Supermassive Albino Snail
Known as the Powelliphanta, this big-ass snail can grow to the size of a man’s fist over the course of its 20 year lifespan. Remember the giant cricket picture that swept the Internets a few days ago? These guys are neighbors, both hailing from New Zealand. Jeezus, New Zealand, what are you guys putting in the water down there? Because I’ll take five.
Lifesize Papercraft Link
Created by DeviantARTist stuioofmm (aka Michaela Something)
Link is a life size papercraft model standing around 5’5. He is made completely from 250 gsm paper (about 4x stronger then normal paper). He has foam core supports in the top and bottom of his pants, top and bottom of his boots and a ring in his waist. There is also some in the back of his shield, and in the handle of the master sword.
Link is made from 250+ pages, the initial template is 198, but there are layers of strips of paper inside for support, and 831 pieces. I worked on him constantly for a month, working approximately 12 hours each day but sometimes that number could go up to 20.
