Starfish

Sure, it may not be quite as good as KAMIYA's, which he folded for origami TV champion with waterproof paper, but I still like how this model came out. When thinking for ideas of what else I could fold, I suddenly remembered KAMIYA folding his. Then I thought of the bird base, but it didn't quite have enough flaps. So I modified the bird base a bit and came up with my own:
Starfish CP

As you can see, the model has 5 points on it. All you have to do now is book fold the entire base in half and do two inside reverse folds and one outside reverse fold. This model ends up with a lot of layers in one of the "arms", so you may want to use foil or flatten the model in some way after folding.

Your blog is awesome! I ADORE origami, but really can't get this complex!

Also, how did you link your blogspot blog into a Wordpress site? That's AWESOME! I want to link it to my WP, but dunno how....

Thank you very much! :D

I'm going to guess that you mean I Can Has Cheezburger. I just made a wordpress profile and set my website to this blog. Then it links here for my website, including on ICHC.

I've never tried waterproof paper. Here is the video with it in it, done by people who are much better than I am: http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=dt2rWZfcvy8
