Portland Pride 2015


This is another late post... about Portland Pride in June of 2015.  I usually participate in this annual parade with Rose City Mortgage, but this time I decided to participate only by making these origami accessories in rainbow colors for the people to wear.


Paper balloon choker
Various kinds of modular flowers using
LaFosse & Alexander's Origami Flowers as a reference.
They are made into pins.
Fluted diamond garland
Traditional 16-pointed stars,
made into pendants.
Star Corona by Maria Sinayskaya
made into a pendant and a pin.
Yoshizawa butterfly, rainbow colored by my student
made into a pin
3-minute Kawasaki roses made into a pin and a hairband.
I used ばらの夢折り紙, a gift from the author as a reference.  
It was just as fun to fold these as to parade in this event!  I may have to do this again...
