Groucho Glasses v2

(Nose + Mustache Gag Glasses)

DesignedFeb 2016
Crease PatternYes

This model is an update of my old Groucho Glasses v1 model. When I came up with this redesign, I had been challenging myself to redesign my old models, particularly those I was unsatisfied with. The previous version of this model was box-pleated and required lots of shaping, but this new version can achieve most of the same look while requiring fewer shaping steps beyond the base. Although Groucho Glasses v1 and v2 use very similar paper flap allocations and placements (the nose comes from the center of the paper, the glasses arms come from the top two corners, etc.), the two are executed in very different ways. The difference is visible when their crease patterns are compared.
