I think sometimes when you’re a person who is as menacing as I am, people have a lot of preconceived notions. Like for instance, they might think I like to limp around with a hump on my back and that maybe a terrible accident has made my hands into horrible claws. Or maybe they think that years of crawling around in tunnels deep under the earth has blunted my senses. Well I’m here to dispel some of these stereotypes about things that bump around in the dark. We don’t just BUMP around in the dark all the time. We can be deep and sensitive and creative in the dark as well. This week I’m excited to share a paper model I made of Pyramid Head from Silent Hill. The original design is by Chamoo232 who has a lot of cool paper models on her site.
I don’t know about you but it seems like pyramid head is a pretty insane character. I mean, for one thing, that knife is pretty huge. So a person ends up thinking the whole pyramid head things is Freudian. Pyramid head seems to be very popular. He appears in some of the Silent Hill games, but I guess mostly in Silent Hill 2. In the movie he shows up once dragging a body around, and then later, pyramid head pulls the skin clean off one of the characters, which is pretty brutal. I don’t know about you, but if I was walking down the street and saw pyramid head walking towards me, I might cross the street.
In Silent Hill 2, pyramid head seems to do quite a few awful things. For one, he seems to kill a few people, including Maria. He is also seen doing something kind of sexual looking but maybe not sexual in a kitchen with two Mannequin creatures. There are a lot of YouTube clips of that. For that matter, there are quite a few YouTube clips of various scenes with Pyramid Head. At one point there are two pyramid heads and they eventually impale their own heads on their own spears, killing themselves. Yes it is a wild and wooly world in Silent Hill.
I really like making paper models. I think I’ve talked about it before. When you’re making a paper model, you do a lot of cutting of the paper. And then also you glue the model together. Then you have a finished paper model. I have a bunch of papercrafts, from mummies to monsters. It’s very satisfying to make paper models, and besides the paper and the ink that you have to buy, it’s pretty cheap to make them too. I love making paper models!
Thanks for tuning in. This has been about the Pyramid Head Paper Model.
